Garnett, Rondo & Rivers present at Pierce’s big night while Allen snubs event

Kevin Garnett, Rajon Rondo and coach Doc Rivers were in attendance during Paul Pierce’s retirement jersey rites at the TF Garden.

Garnett, Pierce and Ray Allen formed the Celtics’ Big Three then and were instrumental in winning the NBA title. Rondo also played a pivotal role in Boston’s title run then.

The Boston Celtics ended a 22-year title drought by defeating the Los Angeles Lakers in the finals.

Rivers incidentally mentored the Lakers in the title series.

Conspicuously absent, however, was Allen who opted to play golf rather than joining his old gang at Pierce’s big moment.
