Paul Pierce wants back in the public radar 3 months after being fired from his ESPN gig, and Magnus Carlsen is all in for the idea.
Through the course of his life, The Truth would probably have learnt that fame is a fickle friend. Celebrity isn’t actually as celebrity does anymore. If a celebrity does certain stuff in the public eye, it’s probably going to affect other parts of their lives.
That’s exactly what happened to Pierce as he live-streamed a house poker game on Instagram. His employers at ESPN took note of the marijuana and strippers caught on tape and decided to fire him.
Pierce has used this intervening time to invest some money into the burgeoning cryptocurrency market. He claims to have made more money through his investments than from his contract with ESPN.
But it seems that a sportsperson like him can’t stay too far away from the action. He probably misses being on national TV more than he thought when he initially got fired.
Magnus Carlsen backs Paul Pierce to start his podcast with Kevin Garnett
The Celtics legend is as tight as anyone could be with The Big Ticket. This is a duo that’s played 7 professional seasons on the same team after coming up together through high school.
Now that Kevin Garnett’s Area 21 is off air from TNT, he also has more time away from national television. It’s a completely plausible and logical idea for them to tag team for an NSFW, unfiltered podcast. Pierce knew this when he floated this idea to NBA fans.
The Truth and The Ticket podcast unfiltered should we do it what y’all think 🤔

Magnus Carlsen was one of those who were surprisingly up for this idea.

We took the liberty of going through his past Twitter posts, and it was a pleasant surprise to find out that the greatest chess player of the 21st century is an ardent fan of the Boston Celtics.
