Paul Pierce was in attendance when Derek Jeter said goodbye at Fenway Park this weekend. However, the Washington Wizards forward turned up wearing a Boston Celtics jacket.
To put things into context, Pierce played for the Celtics for fifteen seasons and was idolised by the fans. He left the franchise in acrimonious circumstances last summer for the Brooklyn Nets, who decided not to re-sign him and now plays for the Wizards.
It’s a bit like Frank Lampard walking around in a Chelsea top, despite being a Manchester City player.
One thing is for sure however, Pierce, a.k.a. The Truth, does what he wants.
