Boys' basketball: Paul Pierce is returning to Inglewood

September 14, 2010 | 10:37 am

Paul Pierce of the Boston Celtics, one of the most beloved sports figures in the history of Inglewood High, is returning next Tuesday to have his uniform retired during a 9 a.m. ceremony in the school auditorium.

Schools officials say the event is not open to the public.  If Pierce wasn't playing for the Celtics, Lakers fans would be cheering for him because he's a loyal Southern California native.
