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.

Later in the interview, Horford and Williams claimed that they were not holding a grudge.

“I’m not mad at him at all,” Horford said. “You know, I mean, he’s a competitor like you said and, you know, he wants to win. He’s a good player, so, I mean, it’s fine for him to talk. He’s a vet.”

Said Williams: “You know, growing up, you know, Paul Pierce was one of the guys I looked up to. At the end of the day, he’s a competitor, man, he wants to win just like we want to win and it’s never personal.”

Because the kid probabbly soesn't have the $50. These NBA guys gamble and bet money all the time, they play cards on the airplane for huge amounts of money.

who do the Celtic's play their first 10-20 games,......maybe they will send a copy to Stern......:clap:

The C's didnt sweep but they still won soo i dont know what relevance this has other then a rich guy who still needs 10 grand because he didnt get beat in 4 games but got beat in 7 games instead.

If this is true they both should be suspended for the season. How is this any different than what pete rose did? They both bet on their team to win. Im sure this sort of thing happens all the time, but is never made public. I hope they both get suspended.

Last season Pierce was sucking some Laker-balls because they were playing the team that knocked his *** out. Pierce tweeted about how the Lakers are a pitbull compared to the Magic's poodle. Like Rashard Lewis said, who was at home on twitter talking about the Finals and who was actually playing...


Laker fans have legitimate arguement why they lost to Boston in the Finals, as does Celts fans for losing to the Magic in the second round, but the point stands LA came back stronger the next season and won it all, the Celts are slowly falling apart.

Age maybe just a number, but in the NBA, if that number is too high we may need to make each and every arena, wheel-chair accessible. Right Paul? ;)

It has taken Horford over well over a year to say something, hasn't even tried to collect on the bet.. it is quite obvious that there was no intention of being legally bound, the league won't look into something this ridiculous

However, totally different story if Pierce turns around and pays $10,000 to Horford tomorrow

Sounds like you owe Pierce 10,000 because their isnt one guy on the Celtics that is a HOF'er and they won the title 2yrs ago.

Pay the man!

I can't say the same thing for Ray Allen, but you don't believe Kevin Garnett is a Hall of Famer?

I think that's just crazy. Your entitled to your opinion, but I disagree with that.

What he meant is that no one on the Celtics is currently in the HOF.

Garnett isnt a HOF, when did he get inducted. You'd have lost that bet too.

Garnett, Allen and Pierce will all make the hall eventually, but not one of them is a hof'er now, the only way that "Boltpadre", could have won that bet is if two HOF'ers came out of retirement and they won then won the title!

I've never seen Hof'er on any current players credentials, potential HOF'ers for sure but that wasnt the bet it said with "2 hof'ers" and Garnett and Allen are not "yet" HOF'ers.

The whole thing was a joke anyway's but if someone made thart bet in writing in a legal gambling state, they would have lost even if after the Celtics won the title and had to pay up.
