Paul Pierce can’t say ‘thank you’ enough to Boston and its fans

Paul Pierce [1] was always at the leading edge of social media among Boston athletes in his 15 years in Boston.

He showed again why on Tuesday, taking to Instagram [2], creating an account [paulpierce] with a similar handle to his Twitter account of @paulpierce34, to say thank you to the city of Boston and its fans for their support over his time with the Celtics [3].

He created a hastag of #THANKYOUBOSTON for those on Instagram wishing to surface all of the photos he has collected over the years.

His home page features a photo of him with a youngish Tom Brady [4] (circa the 2001-02 season).

Pierce was formally traded on July 12 to Brooklyn along with fellow future hall of famer Kevin Garnett [5] and Jason Terry [6] for Kris Humphries, Keith Bogans, MarShon Brooks, Gerald Wallace [7] and Kris Joseph and three first-round picks. In one of his first acts as a member of his new team, he wanted to show Tuesday that he hadn’t forgotten all that was accomplished with the team that brought him into the NBA.
