It was like a flashback to Boston Celtics practice five years ago.
As Paul Pierce pulled up for a shot in Fridays game against the Phoenix Suns, Sebastian Telfair leapt to contest it.
Telfair, who played for the Celtics during the 2006-07 season, said Pierce hasnt changed since his time on the team.
Still the same 'P2', Telfair told CSNNE.com following the Suns 79-71 win. Hes one of the best players in the league. Hes always going to be aggressive. He definitely can score on anybody.
He paused before continuing with a laugh, But I locked him up tonight on that one possession I had on him.
Telfair, 26, was traded by the Celtics to the Minnesota Timberwolves as part of the Kevin Garnett deal in July of 2007. Since then, he has played for the Los Angeles Clippers, Cleveland Cavaliers, and is now a backup point guard for the Suns. He is averaging 3.9 points and 0.9 assists.
Feels like a long time since playing for the Celtics, Telfair said. This is my eighth year in the league now, so time is definitely flying. Im still young so Ive got a long time to go. But hopefully Ill get one of those rings like the Celtics got.
