Jackie MacMullan: Scars Linger in a Painful Season

"It's another year I don't get recognized for the things I do. I'm the classic case of a great player on a bad team, and it stinks." ...

"I want to be recognized for what I've accomplished. That may sound selfish, but I've sacrificed a lot. I want to win. That's all I want. Most great players are selfish.

"We're not on a winning team, and as long as that's true, I don't get recognized as one of the top players in the league. We're never on TV. I wasn't part of the All-Star Game [this season]. We just don't get the benefit of so many other things that winning teams get." -- 3.30.07, Paul Pierce to Jackie MacMullan, Boston Globe
