Paul Pierce was enshrined into Boston Celtics folklore after the team retired his No. 34 on Sunday, but he's apparently not the only member of the team's 2008 championship-winning side who will receive the honor.

Kevin Garnett, a key figure in their last conquest who averaged 15.7 points and 8.3 rebounds over six seasons in Boston is supposedly next in line to have his jersey retired, Pierce told ESPN's Chris Forsberg. Although Garnett first emerged as one of the greatest power forwards in the league during his first 12 seasons with the Minnesota Timberwolves, Pierce says he would prefer to be eternally honored by the Celtics.

Toronto Raptors use elite depth to swarm Boston Celtics

  Toronto Raptors use elite depth to swarm Boston Celtics Every team in the NBA can play with pace. Every team can bring it physically. The difference with the Raptors, not just Tuesday night but for the bulk of the season, is they don’t stop.TORONTO — If the Boston Celtics — the Eastern Conference’s winningest team, the NBA’s highest-rated defence, and the only outfit with a currently conceivable chance to stop the Toronto Raptors from winning the East and securing home-court advantage through the conference finals — looked a little overwhelmed Tuesday night, that’s because they were.

"(Garnett would) rather have his jersey retired in Boston than in Minnesota," Pierce said. "He'll eventually have his number retired with the Timberwolves, too, but he'll have to wait until management sells the team."

Garnett was a powerhouse during his opening stint with the Timberwolves. He averaged a double-double of 20.5 points and 11.4 rebounds and was a 10-time All-Star before being traded to Boston on July 31, 2007. With him in the fold, the Celtics developed their Big Three of Pierce, Garnett, and Ray Allen.

Despite waiving a no-trade clause to return to Minnesota in the twilight of his career, Garnett has long been critical of the Timberwolves' front office, specifically owner Glen Taylor. In December, Garnett admitted he one day hopes to buy the Timberwolves in order to remove Taylor from his post.

The caribou catchers: Inside the operation to save ‘ghosts of the woods’ from hungry wolves .
Four years after a pack of wolves crossed to Michipicoten Island on an ice bridge, there are as few as 20 caribou left and almost as many wolves . Unable (and perhaps unwilling) to cull so many wolves quickly, the best option was to pull the caribou out. While it might expedite the wolves’ starvation on the island, it would likely happen naturally anyway, Leo Lepiano, the First Nation’s lands and resource co-ordinator, said this week.© Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry A caribou is released after being flown to the Slate Islands in Lake Superior.
