The return of Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett inspired Awesome Old Song of the Week (known as "Gino Time")

Tonight Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett will step foot on the Garden floor for first time since being traded from Boston last June.  You can read my thoughts on the subject in this ESPN Boston article (and series) I contributed to over the summer.  There is a 100% chance I am going to cry during the pre-game introductions, and I'm pretty sure they both will too.

In honor of their homecoming, this weeks' awesome old song is "You Should be Dancing" by the Bee Gees.  The video from the arena scoreboard referred to as "Gino Time" was Garnett's favorite moment during blowout home victories, and one of the defining images of KG and The Captain's time together in Boston.  My eyes just welled up while writing that sentence.  Here's a clip from the best "Gino Time" I ever attended (or anyone else for that matter), Game 6 of the 2008 NBA Finals.
