For the first time since 1975... There are 4 Celtics on the All Star team.

Back then it was John Havlicek, Jo Jo White, Dave Cowens and Paul Silas.

Today, obviously, it's Paul Pierce, Ray Allen, Kevin Garnett and Rajon Rondo.

I've been a fan of Paul Pierce since he was a rookie on the Celtics, when I was in 7th grade... And it's moments like this that kind of make me pause and put things in perspective. That these guys we're watching now can measure up at all to the legends that are Havlicek, White, Cowens and Silas is a mind boggling thing. It makes me realize how lucky I am to have such an amazing team to root for. I'm watching history happen, and I try to always keep that in mind when I watch them, because it's not going to last forever.
