If this clip doesn't get you pumped up for the start of the Celtics' postseason, you must be a Hawks fan or something.

It's part of a series of "A Champion Will Rise" commercials debuting Saturday morning on ESPN in promotion of the network's NBA playoff coverage. This one features Celtics captain Paul Pierce hanging out with the championship banners in the Garden rafters.

"There are 17 championship banners in this building," Pierce says, apparently not paying much mind to the NHL. "Eleven from Russell. Three from Bird. I even helped raise one. But we're not here to talk about history. We're here to keep making it."

Good stuff.

If you need a reminder, Game 1 is tomorrow night at 7 p.m. on TNT and Comcast SportsNet New England.

The Celtics' first postseason game on the ESPN networks is Friday, when Game 3 will air on ESPN2.
