Paul Pierce Tells ESPN ‘I Don’t Need You’ After Claiming He Hit Big With New Cryptocurrency, Fans Aren’t Convinced
Paul Pierce doesn’t mind after being recently fired by ESPN.
The NBA veteran took to Twitter on Wednesday to promote a new business, saying, “@espn I don’t need you. I have @ethereum_max.
According to its website, “EthereumMax ($ eMax) is an ERC-20 decentralized growth token built on the secure Ethereum network. We launched eMax with the vision of bridging the gap between the emergence of community tokens and the well-known fundamental coins of crypto, creating a unique token that offers recurring and automatic financial rewards to its holders with a path for use. long-term practice in everyday life. “
Pierce did not get bogged down in explaining the crypto jargon above, he claims that he has already had great success with this new cryptocurrency that did not exist until May 14.
His tweet continued, “I made more money with this crypto in the last month than with all of you in a year. The TRUTH will set you free my own boss http://EthereumMax.org verify you- even.
Some Twitter users, however, took a very opposite view of the new cryptocurrency and looked down on her and Pierce for being involved in what they called a scam. One of them said, “Brother, how is that possible when I bought $ 500 on May 16th the first day, now it’s worth $ 20, it’s a scam with you seriously talking about my brother” , and someone else said, “All those steps to buy it lol it’s a straightforward scam. Paul Pierce is really hitting rock bottom.
Another wrote: “Paul The Lie Pierce, I hate to tell you this, but eMax is serious shitcoin. There could be serious implications for the one-coin shilling with some 2,000 billion tokens in circulation. But you did your due diligence, so you already knew that. Just hang it up already.
After 19 seasons in the field shooting hoops for teams like Celtics, Nets, Wizards, Clippers, Pierce moved on to a new role as a sports analyst for ESPN’s “NBA Countdown” and “The Jump” circa 2017 -2018. However, ESPN decided to cut ties with Pierce last month after posting a video of himself on Instagram Live having a little too much fun.
The April 3 video shows Pierce playing poker with his friends and smoking while several exotic dancers dance in the background. The next day, fans took to Twitter to joke about the situation and even predicted that ESPN was going to separate from the 43-year-old. Two days later, it was confirmed that Pierce had been released from the sports network.
But as the saying goes, when one door closes another opens. Daryn Parker, vice president of adult entertainment website CamSoda, offered Pierce a new job to be their “first-ever NBA analyst” less than a week after his dismissal. The letter to Pierce read, “As an NBA analyst, you would be obligated to stream yourself live on our platform every night of the week and discuss events around the NBA. Damn inside the NBA.
Not only was Parker offering $ 250,000, the role would also come with some special perks he couldn’t get at ESPN – exotic dancers. “Here at CamSoda, we stand up for exotic dancers, cam girls and sex workers,” Parker’s letter continued. “We would be more than happy to accommodate your fondness for women and you would be free to stream with them as they twerk in the background and more.”
It’s not clear if Pierce has reached out to discuss the terms, but it looks like between his new cryptocurrency business and CamSoda there are some interesting turning points in store for him in the future.
