ESPN fired NBA analyst Paul Pierce after the Boston Celtics legend posted a racy Instagram Live video over the weekend that showed him smoking weed and had strippers twerking in the background.
Pierce was an analyst for the network on multiple NBA shows. That included the studio show, “The Jump” and its pregame show “NBA Countdown.”
One fan really wanted to know what Jemele Hill thought about the situation, since she used to work for ESPN.
“@jemelehill I dont think ive read or heard your take on the latest on Paul Pierce.”
Jemele saw the tweet and responded back:
Pierce joined ESPN before the 2017-2018 season.
On Monday, Pierce posted a video of him smiling with the caption, “Big Things coming soon stay tuned make sure u smile #Truthshallsetufree.”
Later on, he tweeted again writing, “I can’t lose even when I lose I’m winning.”
