Former NBA All-Star Paul Pierce found himself in hot water after a wild Instagram Live video was posted on Friday night. And now, it’s cost him his job with ESPN.
The network has officially parted ways with Pierce as of Monday evening:
Pierce filmed himself on Instagram Live on Friday night partying with exotic dancers while smoking, drinking and playing cards.
Pierce, who was recently named a finalist for the 2021 NBA Hall of Fame class, has been a regular on “NBA Countdown,” “The Jump” and other ESPN coverage since his retirement from the NBA in 2017.
