Paul Pierce seemingly takes shot at Kevin Durant
Kevin Durant knew fans were going to blast him for taking the easy way out when he signed with the Golden State Warriors, but how do his fellow players feel about it? Some are probably happy for Durant while others share Paul Pierce’s opinion.
Shortly after Durant announced his decision, Pierce sent this not-so-subtle tweet:
If u can't beat um join um
— Paul Pierce (@paulpierce34) July 4, 2016
If anyone has earned the right to make a comment like that, it’s Pierce. The veteran small forward stuck it out for years with some truly horrible Boston Celtics teams before he was rewarded with Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen as teammates in 2007. Pierce took advantage of the opportunity, bringing a championship to Boston that season.
Perhaps Pierce saw this old tweet that Durant sent and felt inclined to throw some shade his way. Pierce wasn’t the first to criticize Durant and he certainly won’t be the last.
