Paul Pierce wants the night of his jersey retirement to be all about him. He doesn't have time for an Isaiah Thomas tribute video.

The Celtics originally planned to play Thomas' tribute video Wednesday night when they faced off with his new team, the Cavaliers, but due to the fact Cleveland's new point guard was not playing, he asked if they could hold off. They agreed and rescheduled for Feb. 11.

"I'm not saying Isaiah shouldn't get a tribute video … but on Feb. 11, the night I get my jersey retired, I'm not sure I want to look up at the JumboTron and see Isaiah highlights," Pierce said Thursday during an appearance on ESPN's The Jump.
