After news broke of Paul Pierce’s breakup with ESPN, he became the topic of conversation on social media, as fans wondered what might come next for the former Celtics star.

Immediately following his firing, “the Truth” broke his silence on Twitter in a rather bizarre video, where he’s seen laughing for a few seconds alongside the caption “#smile.”

Pierce tells the audience to “stay tuned” for big things ahead, but doesn’t go into much detail about what that might mean. Is he headed towards another sports broadcasting gig? Is he starting up a project of his own?

In the comments, though, fans were much more interested in debating the manner of his firing…

So, that’s that. And while pierce’s journey with ESPN has ended, it’s unlikely we’ve heard the last from him in the media world. He’ll be back in some capacity, and it’ll be on his terms this time.
