  • New Clipper Paul Pierce bounces ceremonial first pitch before Dodgers game

    After spending the last 17 years balling on the East Coast with the Boston Celtics, Brooklyn Nets and Washington Wizards, Paul Pierce — a native of Inglewood, Calif. — has finally returned to the West Coast, signing a three-year, $10 million deal to rejoin former Celtics head coach Doc Rivers with the Los Angeles Clippers. Like many new additions and returning heroes before him, Pierce was invited by his new/old town's baseball team, the Los Angeles Dodgers, to throw out the ceremonial first pitch before Tuesday night's game against the Oakland A's, which the Dodgers had christened "Clippers Night."

    For the 37-year-old shot-maker, it would, somewhat regrettably, be a night to remember.
