Paul Pierce after playing in wild video goes viral NBA Paul Pierce investigation, a source confirmed to The Post.
The decision came after Pierce posted an indecent Instagram video on Friday showing him posing with what looked like marijuana and with women dressed as potential robbers.
According to sources, ESPN was upset that Pierce chose to release his own video.
If he was photographed doing the same activity and someone else highlighted it, he would probably have continued his work.
Pierce is expected to be elected to the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame this year.
ESPN, which declined to comment, does not have an immediate plan to replace Pierce because it has so many scouts it can turn to.
