Paul Pierce, the Boston Celtics legend, revealed that the reason why he was carried out in a wheelchair in the NBA Finals back in 2008 was that he “had to go to the bathroom”. But only a few short hours later, he retracted his story. So what really happened?
Paul Pierce Pooping Confession and Retraction
It has been 11 years since the event in game 1 of the 2008 NBA Finals and thousands of fans still wonder what really happened to Paul Pierce, so that he had to be taken out of the court in a wheelchair. Pierce was rushed to the locker room after falling down awkwardly, making everyone wonder what could be so serious, only to return a few minutes later. He went on to play the entire series and he successfully led the Celtics to their new title and won himself the MVP of the NBA Finals award.
Recently, he’s been working as an NBA analyst with ESPN and his postseason predictions have been way off the mark. Back in round 2, when the Celtics took the victory in game 1 against the Bucks, he boldly predicted that the Celtics would win the series easily.

Last Wednesday night he spoiled his credibility even more with a very strange course of events. As we earlier revealed, he mentioned his most infamous incident – the Wheelchairgate, which after 11 years is also known as the Poopgate.
Celtics played in the NBA Finals back in 2008, and what happened to Paul Pierce in Game 1 of the series was pretty bizarre. He went down after taking a shot and seemed to be in agonizing pain. He had to be taken off the court by his teammates and placed in a wheelchair when entering the tunnel. Strangely enough, just a few minutes later he returned, showing no signs of an injury whatsoever, and even took the game in his hands, leading his team to victory.
Theories started to come up that he actually pooped his pants and had to do something about it without the incident being caught by the cameras. Pierce himself said that he felt something strange and, fearing an ACL tear, he didn’t want to take any chances. And that made perfect sense. Further analysis of the moment in question was made, and there was no sign that suggested the poop theory was correct. It was then accepted that is was nothing more than a joke.
But during Game 3 of this season’s NBA Finals series Pierce said something shocking. Michelle Beadle from ESPN reminded Pierce that June 5 marked an anniversary of Poopgate, he stunned everyone by confirming it.
Pierce used the words “something went down” when explaining what happened on that date 11 years ago, which was a bit vague, but it seemed like he confirmed wheelchairgate. He did say he went to the bathroom but didn’t mention if that was the only reason for the whole incident. Put two and two together. Connect the dots.
It was a strange admission from Pierce. He was being pressed for details, he offered it voluntarily. Finally, the great NBA mystery is solved!
That eureka moment lasted just for a few hours though as Pierce changed course, went on twitter and tweeted that the Poop Theory was false.
Now, which Paul should we believe? The Paul who willingly and without coercion gave a story that referenced him pooping his shorts, or the one who backtracked and denied the story a just few hours later? It is a bit dicey as both versions check out. A lot of people have revealed truths that are embarrassing, regretted it, and immediately backtrack to save face. There is also the chance that Pierce was just messing around by crossed-fingeredly affirming the Poop Theory, and actually truthful when he denied poopgate.
As it is now, it does not really matter what actually went down (or not). Whenever a person hears Paul Pierce crapped his pants and was carried off the court by teammates, put in a wheelchair to hide it during an NBA Finals game, they do not need facts. There will always be a part of them, deep within their soul, that will believe. It makes it interesting.
Moreover, when Pierce stared straight into a camera on Wednesday night and told millions of audience that he indeed pooped his pants during an NBA Finals game and requested that he be taken off the court and put in the wheelchair to conceal it, nobody needs the truth, because Paul Pierce is no longer the Truth. He’s the guy who pooped his pants during the NBA Finals and asked to be taken off the court and put in a wheelchair to hide it.
NO ONE IS MORE HURT THAN PAUL PIERCE IN HAVING TO GO BACK TO ORCALE ARENA AFTER SAYING GAME 4 WAS THE LAST GAME TO BE PLAYED THERE….THE MAN IS A JINX‼️‼️‼️😂😂😂 pic.twitter.com/NTzu8X9489
