The Truth doesn’t seem to be hurting Paul Pierce.
The Celtics great is using the same social media platforms that got him fired by ESPN to express to fans that he is doing just fine after the network decided to let him go after a raunchy Instagram post.
“Yo, just want to thank all my supporters and thank my haters and everything,” Pierce posted in an Instagram video. “Check it out, bigger and better things coming, baby. Don’t worry about it. You fall twice, you get up three times. Just always remember to smile, baby.”
Pierce posted a video on Friday night of him getting massaged by half-naked women at a poker table. According to The Post’s Andrew Marchand, ESPN’s decision was largely based on Pierce opting to post the videos himself.
The 10-time All-Star and soon-to-be Hall of Famer had been with ESPN since the start of the 2017-18 season and was one of the lead analysts on “NBA Countdown and “The Jump” — two of ESPN’s premiere NBA shows.
Pierce also assured fans he was doing fine on Twitter.
“I can’t lose even when I lose I’m winning,” Pierce wrote.
