BOSTON (CBS) – With the Boston Celtics’ blockbuster deal with the Brooklyn Nets set to become official on Friday, the organization wanted to thank Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett for all they’ve done for the historic franchise.

The Celtics took out a full-page ad in the Boston Globe on Friday, featuring a photo of Pierce holding his 2008 NBA Finals MVP Trophy and Garnett with the Larry O’Brien Trophy with a thank you message above the two players.

“Thank You,” the statement started in big green letters. “For your heart. For your passion. For your sacrifice. For playing through pain. For bleeding green. For honoring tradition. For an amazing ride. For restoring Celtics pride. For Banner 17.”

The Celtics also sent the photo out over their Twitter account.

With the Celtics starting their rebuilding process, Pierce and Garnett are heading to Brooklyn along with guard Jason Terry  in exchange for a package of players and three first-round draft picks. Pierce played all 15 of his NBA seasons in Boston after being drafted 10th overall in 1998, and the team won the franchise’s 17th championship in Garnett’s first season with the team.
