Paul Pierce. I love this man as a basketball player, and so should every Celtics fan. If you haven't heard, he is retiring at the end of this season. Draymond Green certainly has. The Clippers visited the Warriors recently, and Draymond had some choice words for Pierce.
He said (and I quote): "You can't get no farewell tour, they don't love you like that. You thought you was Kobe?" Obviously referring to Kobe's farewell tour last season, ending in a nationally televised exhibition game and getting the cover of NBA 2K17 (if you got the legend edition, which I didn't). Pierce later retaliated with the above tweet. It admittedly isn't the best roast, but it's impressive for Pierce given that he barely knows how Twitter works.
Shortly after this was posted, Twitter user @FlyLikeBryant took offense to this saying, "game 7 ya thought y'all gone win but kobe 10 points in the 4th quarter."
User @hig_flyer backed him up, saying, "fr the Celtics blew a 3-2 lead in the finals."
@lookatmyglo reaffirmed this statement, saying "you blew a 3-2 lead to the lakers my guy." Reminder, this post was NOT INTENDED FOR THE LAKERS. @LakersPatriot, the self-proclaimed "Patriot of Lakers Nation" tweeted a gif of Kobe hitting a 3 in the 2010 Finals.
User @KobeTruthNlight, forever infamous to me for saying Kobe is better than Lebron based on All Star Game Steals, tweeted two pictures of Pierce being carried off the court and riding a wheelchair in the tunnel of the Boston Garden following an MCL injury in Game 1 of the 2008 Finals. This just proves that Lakers fans on twitter are incredibly easy to trigger, and that's the Truth.
