Paul Pierce...WTF

    So Paul Pierce is now an employee at ABC/ESPN and an analyst, whatever that means for most of them on that channel now, but he is at Cavs vs. Celtics Game 7....as?, well not really sure. He sits front row and trash talks LBJ.

    Pierce talks trash

    Then, after LBJ and Cavs win, he goes on SportsCenter to analyze the game, like nothing happened? WTF. Not sure what ESPN thinks the advantage of this is? Or maybe they think no one notices? But that to me just lacks credibility. It's up there with bringing in people that were there like Wilbon at the Cubs game.

    Since when has credibility mattered over there?

    Yeah I get that but WTF. I have never seen an analyst talk sh** to someone playing a game and come on ESPN like it's no big deal. For instance never seen Jalen Rose go to a Pacers game being a former Pacer and get in LBJ's ear and then come on the air like nothing happened.
  5. Charles Barkley's run down of Draymond Green isn't much of a stretch.

    I imagine ESPN thinks it more credible, more authentic, more real.

    Forgot the accurate one...more bullshit.

    Next ESPN will mic up an analyst to talk shit to the opposing star. SVP interviews him after, "Did you think you'd have more success throwing LBJ off his game to help the Celtics win tonight, Paul?" Listen here, SVP...

    I know he's been there a while, I just meant like currently when I said is now. Meaning next step in career...why it shocked me he can go sit front row and talk shit to LeBron in a Game 7 or any game really.

    Nothing new here as long as TV has been foisting ex-jocks on viewers.
