Earlier this week, future Hall of Famer Paul Pierce and ESPN parted ways after, he went live on Instagram last week.
Pierce was seen smoking weed, playing poker, and in a room full of strippers.
On Saturday, Bleacher Reports, Report’s Tyler Conway, that Paul lost $100k in the poker game and woke up to 12 voice mails from ESPN’s HR Department. When Monday afternoon came around, It was announced by Front Office Sports, that the two sides had parted ways.
After the announcement, Pierce posted a video on his IG with the caption “Bigger and better things on the Way”
However, Pierce might be headed to Barstool according to NBA Champion, Brendan Haywood.
“I’m not sure how true this rumor is, but this is what I have heard and he will fit in just fine over there,” said Haywood on Instagram Live on Tuesday afternoon.
“I’ve heard Barstool is ready to give Paul Pierce a job that pays him more than what he got at ESPN. And you know Barstool don’t care about a little bit of strippers in the back.”
The company already has Deion Saunders working there creating football content, and if they were able to land Pierce for basketball content it would be a good fit. Pierce is a fan favorite in Boston especially after winning a championship in 2008.
On Tuesday night, adult website Cam Soda attempted to reach out to Pierce to offer him $250,000 to be the company’s first-ever “NBA Analyst” and stream nightly shows on the site for people to tune in to.
So, the 2021 Hall of Fame class finalist has options to choose from after his departure from the Worldwide Leader in Sports.
