Celtics legend Paul Pierce poised to ‘bounce back like never before’ after getting fired by ESPN
Paul Pierce was recently let go by ESPN after displaying a questionable live stream of himself partying with strippers. It was an incident that came out of nowhere that caused a stir of reactions from across the NBA world.
Pierce’s analyst career is up in the air for now, as it’s unsure whether another sports broadcasting outlet picks him up. However, it seems the former Boston Celtic has plans for a comeback after conversing with TMZ Sports.
“Truth gonna bounce back like never before … that’s all you gotta know,” so claimed “The Truth” on his way out of Il Pastaio restaurant in Beverly Hills Friday night.
He likely has something cooking in the kitchen for his next opportunity. After Paul Pierce was let go by ESPN, the owner of Barstool Sports, Dave Portnoy, began his campaign to potentially bring the legendary NBA player on board. Barstool has already been able to obtain Deion Sanders, so why not Paul Pierce?

However, that is all speculation for now, as Pierce never did give a definitive answer while talking with TMZ. For now, we’ll have to wait and see what “The Truth” does with his career, but based on his social media, big things are happening.
