Al Horford of the Atlanta Hawks had some interesting things to say about Celtics captain Paul Pierce Tuesday in a radio interview on Atlanta's 790 The Zone. Recalling the teams' intense, seven-game, first-round playoff series in 2008, Horford said Pierce was so confident that, during some trash-talking on the court, Pierce bet Horford $10,000 that the Celtics would sweep.
"I haven't talked to him [since the series], but I know he owes me money," Horford said. "Marvin [Williams] was a witness. We were at the free throw line and he was telling me that they were going to sweep us and all this and, you know, we bet and I never got anything."
Williams also took part in Tuesday's interview and backed up his teammate's accusation.
"He bet ten thousand we wouldn't win a game," Williams stated.
