Video: Paul Pierce Accidentally Punching Ref

For those of you that missed it last night, here’s the footage of Pierce celebrating a little too hard…

Now all day i’ve been hearing from angry Lakers fans that Pierce should of got t’d up for this, Really? Its not like the dude cocked back and 2 pieced the ref or anything…well he did but its clear that it wasn’t intentional.  The awkward consoling effort after the impact was a testament to that.

What had me dying was Paul pierce tried to console the ref and try to play it off by laughing at it a little  but the ref was definitely not laughing… he had that look on his face like “You  know your career is about to be over right?”

But honestly with the way the refs have been  blowing calls in this series for both teams I’m  glad somebody stole off on one of them (accidentally)..I’m just glad it wasn’t Rasheed Wallace because lord knows he would probably be going in front of a Grand Jury for that

  • Lakers fans look for anything they can get. Kobe gets the most ridiculous calls throughout the series. Sheed clearly blocks his shot twice and gets called for 2 cheap fouls. It clearly was not intentional on Pierce's part. The Lakers just need to shut up and play and stop making excuses… (Black Sports Executives Connect)

  • Personally, this is why you play the game and not celebrate like it's not the first time you've ever scored a basket in the NBA or clearly hit the game winning shot.

  • Guys!
    WE were treated to great playoffs, and an ugly but closely fought game 7 by the two greatest franchises in NBA history. Paul Pierce would have been treated terribly by the refs if anyone, including league higher ups had thought this was intentional. The worst part about the NBA is that the season is too long, leaving us with watered down performances
    resulting in ups and downs, AND the refs stink. If all Lakers and Celtics were allowed a secret vote to be published, they would agree. Who suffers? The players' uneven performances and those that make no money from all this: You and me – fans.
