Paul Pierce reportedly fired by ESPN after video with exotic dancers

Former NBA superstar Paul Pierce has reportedly been fired by ESPN after broadcasting himself surrounded with exotic dancers.

Pierce went live on Instagram last Friday, April 2 in an apparent gathering with friends as he smoked and drank while women in skimpy clothes danced and twerked in the background.

Days after, news broke out that ESPN fired the former NBA champion.

Since his retirement from the NBA in 2017, the 43-year-old had worked for ESPN as an analyst and contributor.

Pierce appeared in ESPN programs like NBA Countdown and The Jump.

Despite his sacking, Pierce seemed to take the unfortunate news in stride.

"Just want to thank all my supporters and haters. Check it out, bigger and better things coming baby," Pierce said in an Instagram video.

"Fall twice, you get up three times. Just always remember to smile baby."

Drafted 10th overall in 1998, the 6-foot-7 forward played in the NBA for 19 seasons, seeing action for the Boston Celtics, Brooklyn Nets, Washington Wizards, and Los Angeles Clippers.

Pierce won an NBA championship with the Celtics in 2008 and earned an All-Star selection for 10 times in his career.

He was named as a finalist for induction to the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame this year. – Rappler.com

Delfin Dioquino dreamt of being a PBA player, but he did not have the skills to make it. So he pursued the next best thing to being an athlete – to write about them. He took up journalism at the University of Santo Tomas and joined Rappler as soon as he graduated in 2017.
