MIAMI -- Paul Pierce said he doesn't know if the Big Three of himself, Kevin Garnett, and Ray Allen played their last game together Saturday night. But if a 101-88 loss to the Miami Heat in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals is it, Pierce said he has no regrets.
"It was a great opportunity," said Pierce. "Not everyone has the chance to play with some of the greatest players of all-time, Ray, Kevin, also up-and-coming Rondo, who has a bright future here. You can't ask for anything more. A lot of players don't get in that position. I'm very thankful for these last five years."
Pierce said he hadn't had much time to digest what had happened.
"It's tough," said Pierce. "Everything's going too fast right now. I don't want to think about it. I'm more disappointed in the loss. You feel like you let your teammates down, especially when you want to accomplish a goal, win a championship. It's a lot of emotions right now."
On whether or not he expects Garnett and Allen back, Pierce said, "I haven't really put much thought in it. We'll have to see. That's something you'll have to ask management, Danny, Wyc, the owners."
