Paul Pierce is a regular on ESPN, making appearances on “The Jump” and their NBA half-time show. While his stint on the network has been met with mixed reviews so far, it appears as if we’ve seen the last of him on the big screen — at least, for now.
According to reports, the Celtics legend has been fired from ESPN, following his most recent Instagram Live scandal.

For those that aren’t yet aware, Pierce was flamed for his activity on an Instagram Live segment, in which he was seen partying with half-naked women on camera.
After backlash was thrown his way, and calls for his job grew louder, the network decided to officially part ways with the former NBA baller.
As for what’s next for Pierce, that much still remains uncertain. For now, he’s probably going to be out there drinking, dancing, and living his “best life” amid newfound freedom.
