Paul Pierce is quite the character.
He has been trending all day on Tuesday after he spoke with Sports Illustrated and talked about him being fired from ESPN over a stripper-poker party that was just too wild for them after he went live on Instagram.
“Come on, I didn’t do anything illegal,” Pierce said, protesting advice from his agent Jeff Schwartz of Excel Sports Management that an apology could stop his Hall of Fame chances from being hurt.
“These motherf–kers in the Hall of Fame, some did [cocaine], f–king battery. What the f–k did I do? I was just having a good time. All the people coming after me, half you motherf–kers do the same s–t. You’re just hiding it. And you all are married while you’re doing it. I’m divorced. I’m retired. I’m having fun.”
Later on Tuesday, Pierce went viral for a separate reason after footage showed him weirdly harrasing a casino employee as she tried to do her job. He actually asked if she wanted ‘moral or oral’ support.
In 1,343 games played over the course of a 19-year career, the forward/shooting guard averaged 19.7 points, 5.6 rebounds and 3.5 assists per game.
Despite his brilliance on the court, he continues to make questionable decisions off the court that turns people off from him. The #metoo movement will likely have a lot to say about the above video.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
