According to a report by Michael McCarthy of the Front Office Sports Department, Celtics legend and NBA analyst Paul Pierce parted ways with ESPN.
Since he retired from the NBA in 2017, Pierce has been the network’s ESPN NBA Countdown analyst. However, Pierce featured exotic dancers in an Instagram Live post on Friday night, which has attracted a lot of attention on social media since its release.
Pierce did not comment directly on this report, but he appeared to respond to his ESPN departure report on Twitter on Monday night, noting: “A major event is coming, stay tuned, please make sure you smile, #Truthshallsetufree”
