NBA Star Wants Son to Play Baseball

Paul Pierce is a ten-time NBA All-Star and should be a slam dunk (get it!) Hall of Famer when his time comes.

Vine: Paul Pierce and Joakim Noah scuffle in pre-season opener

This is Paul Pierce's 17th pre-season, so you'd think he would be just going through the motions, waiting for the real games to start.Well you'd think wrong. Tonight Pierce got into it in the first quarter of his first pre-season game with the Wizards, tangling with Joakim Noah (of course it was Noah). Love Pierce putting the fists up at the very end. C'mon Paul,...

Paul Pierce revealed why he chose to sign with Washington Wizards

I remember being all surprised when Paul Pierce signed with the Washington Wizards. Most people probably thought he would re-sign with the Brooklyn Nets or maybe he would return to Boston. Instead, he signed with a rising East power and it actually made all the sense in the world. We just never thought about it. Pierce revealed why he went with the Wizards. Via David Aldridge of...

Paul Pierce Rocks New Wizards Jersey, Looks Sort Of Strange (Photo)

Ladies and gentlemen, we present Washington Wizards forward Paul Pierce. That might sound a little weird to fans who became used to rooting for Pierce as a member of the Boston Celtics for 15 seasons, but it’s a reality — a reality that was hammered home with the first look at Pierce wearing a Wizards uniform.
