Did Paul Pierce intentionally drop Jalen Rose’s trophy?

Paul Pierce

The cast of ESPN’s “NBA Countdown” has a segment throughout the season where they place friendly wagers on things that might happen during games, and Jalen Rose was crowned the “Friendly Wagers” champion for the 2018-19 season. However, he may have to deal with a bit of delay with receiving his trophy.

On Saturday night, Paul Pierce dropped Rose’s hardware on the floor while presenting it to him. The trophy broke, and it looked like Pierce may have intentionally fumbled it.

Pierce apologized and said he felt terrible, but you could hear Rose jokingly saying he did it on purpose. The emojis the Boston Celtics legend included in his tweet about it were also suspect.

Hey, we know Pierce is a competitive guy who hates the idea of someone else being better than him at something, so perhaps he just couldn’t bring himself to hand over that trophy.
