Fausse Yeezy Boost 350 v2 Pas Cher .The 10-time All-Star first disclosed his decision Monday in a posting on The Players Tribune and later expanded on it at the teams media day. He turns 39 on Oct. 13, the same birthdate as coach Doc Rivers.The reason for me coming back is this group, he said. This group is talented enough to win a championship. I want to come back and give it one more try and help them get over the top.Pierce said early in the summer he wasnt motivated to work out, but his hunger had returned by August. He averaged 6.1 points and 2.7 rebounds in 18.1 minutes over 68 games last season.Last season left a bad taste in my mouth, how the season went and how I played, he said. Why not give it one more shot? To win a championship here for the Los Angeles Clippers would be monumental.Pierce grew up in nearby Inglewood and enjoys playing in front of his mother, brothers and cousins after stints on the East Coast with Boston, Brooklyn and Washington.With Kevin Garnetts retirement last week, Pierce is the lone active player with over 25,000 points, 7,500 rebounds and 4,500 assists.He spent his first 15 seasons with the Celtics, winning the 2008 NBA championship with them under Rivers.Paul has meant a lot to me, Rivers said. When you win a title with someone youre connected with those people the rest of your life. More kids should watch Paul more than some of the other guys, how he did it without athleticism.He is 16th on the NBAs career scoring list.

PITTSBURGH -- The Steelers are turning to a former top-10 pick approaching bust status for their cornerback help, acquiring?Justin Gilbert?in a trade with the Cleveland Browns.The Steelers send a sixth-round pick in the 2018 draft to the Browns for the rights to Gilbert, the eighth overall pick in 2014 who has managed just 39 tackles in two seasons.Gilbert has had problems adjusting to NFL life. He failed to show up on time for several team meetings as a rookie, prompting then-Browns safety Donte Whitner to say publicly that Gilbert needed to grow up. Gilbert eventually told reporters he had a tendency to oversleep.A 6-footer with long arms, Gilbert can use his athleticism to help the Steelers zone-defense coverage, assuming he responds well to the new environment.The Steelers get much-needed corner depth behind William Gay, Ross Cockrell and Artie Burns?as?injuries to second-round pick Senquez Golson in back-to-back years have forced the team to get help.Before the 2015 season, the Steelers dealt a fifth-round pick to the?Philadelphia Eagles?in exchange for veteran corner Brandon Boykinn, who didnt play a significant role for much of the year and is no longer with the team.
