OT: Paul Pierce fired by ESPN 

Post#1 » by 2019nbachamps » Sat Apr 3, 2021 5:16 pm

Who has seen his hilarious IG Live photos and videos? :lol: :lol:

Over/under on how long before ESPN fires him?

I’m awaiting a suspension and then inevitable “ESPN has decided to part ways with Paul Pierce.” :lol:

I saw something on Twitter, I don't understand what happened. I also don't care. :)

It was probably a bad look to upload that video to IG but he wasn't doing anything illegal. He was playing poker whilst being surrounded by a bunch of strippers who were handing out backrubs.

Not my typical evening but I dont care one way or the other about this too much.

Surprised ESPN kept him after their last shuffle. He's painful to listen to.

Shouldn't be long before the virtue signal cancel culture twitter get him. There's always somebody who claims to be offended.

I'm offended at how women were portrayed in the video even though they were willingly doing that themselves. Oh and I also don't like one guy getting a foot massage by a machine when he could use a human to provide those services.

Don't like him... but you guys are making this out to be something? Anything?

He's playing poker with a couple strippers in the room. What's the issue?

Considering how Durant is getting off very easy, I wouldn't be so sure.

Don't you get it? I mean, I've played poker. I've been to bachelor parties where there were strippers. I've received a massage. But never all three at once. That's just wrong!

tbf, I wasn't receiving cheques from Disney at the same time. :lol:

Virtue signal cancel culture. Is that supposed to be meaningful as social critique? Sounds like urban dictionary bullsht.

Sure but “not illegal” might not be ESPN’s expected minimum standard of conduct.
