Paul Pierce Posts Mysterious Tweet Amid Number Retirement Controversy


Paul Pierce apparently is a man of many feelings right now.

And he just tweeted out three of them.

The Boston Celtics legend has grabbed headlines since expressing discontent with the Celtics planning to play a tribute video for Isaiah Thomas the same day as his jersey retirement ceremony on Feb. 11. But since Thomas has requested to not have said video played, it has led to some criticism of Pierce’s handling of the situation, as well.

Most recently, Pierce’s colleague on ESPN’s “NBA Countdown,” Jalen Rose, who called him “petty” on Wednesday over wanting the night to be all by himself. Pierce later responded during the show, but it doesn’t sound like he was finished, because he sent this tweet out Wednesday night.

Pierce also tweeted this out earlier in the day:

All this could mean any number of things, but only Pierce knows for sure.
