Boston Celtics legend Paul Pierce is clearly still salty that he was abruptly fired by ESPN. “The Truth” took to Twitter on Wednesday to land a low blow at the worldwide leader in sports. Take a look:

ESPN let go of Paul Pierce in April after he posted a video on Instagram of him drinking and smoking with strippers. It wasn’t a good look, so they canned him. Pierce is still bitter as it seems.
Not too sure exactly what Ethereum Max is, but it seems to be some sort of CryptoCurrency. The former Celtic, who retired in 2017, was employed by ESPN for several years, appearing as a regular on “The Jump” and also made appearances on NBA Countdown.
While it all came crashing down for Paul Pierce, it seems like he’s not having any issues still making money. He cashed in on his Calabasas mansion in late April, selling the estate for a whopping $8.7 million.
Pierce spent a total of 19 years in the Association, winning a title in 2008 with the Celtics and making 10 All-Star teams throughout his career. Paul Pierce was also recently included in the 2021 class for the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame. The 43-year-old has enjoyed a successful life, but he clearly can’t let go of the fact that ESPN parted ways with him.
