Paul Pierce‘s run with ESPN is officially over — the network is parting ways with the ex-NBA superstar just days after Pierce posted a racy twerk session with some scantily clad women on Instagram.
Unclear if the video is the reason for Pierce’s departure … but it drew a lot of attention over the weekend.
Also worth noting — the timing of the move is interesting … especially since the NBA season is all but over.
Pierce spent the past 3.5 years with the network … appearing on “NBA Countdown” and “The Jump.”
The ex-Celtics forward seemingly addressed the split on Twitter just minutes ago … saying, “Big Things coming soon stay tuned make sure u smile #Truthshallsetufree”
PP also shared a 4-second video with the message … showing himself laughing and smiling.
Pierce played 19 seasons in the NBA before joining ESPN … he was a 10-time All-Star and won a title alongside Ray Allen and Kevin Garnett in 2008. He was named NBA Finals MVP.
