Hall of Fame Boston Celtics champion forward Paul Pierce has been in and out of the NBA media sphere with his career choices — and the things triggering changes in them — getting quite a bit of press over the last few months.
After his decision to share video footage of himself gambling with exotic dancers in early April of this year, Pierce and his employer at the time — sports media entertainment giant ESPN of Bristol, Connecticut — decided to mutually part ways. Speculation abounded as to the motive of the former Celtics star’s decisions surrounding the exit from ESPN, even including the possibility he’d been hoping to be let go to embark on a new career related to legal cannabis ventures.
Without a definitive statement from the 2008 NBA Champion, fans and the media alike were left with their speculation, and now it seems the plot may be growing thicker.
Pierce tweeted on Wednesday afternoon about his departure from ESPN, stating that he didn't need them and was now making more money via a cryptocurrency known as Ethereum Max. "I made more money with this crypto in the past month then [sic] I did with y’all in a year," tweeted Pierce. "TRUTH shall set u Free," he added before encouraging the public to check out the cryptocurrency for themselves, using the same language he had in a series of cryptic (no pun intended) tweets he penned shortly after his decampment from ESPN. https://twitter.com/TheCelticsWire/status/1393929234419159042?s=20
Ethereum Max's website describes itself as "a decentralized ERC-20 growth token built on the secure Ethereum network" designed to "bridge the gap between the emergence of community tokens and the well-known foundational coins of crypto". This supposedly creates a "unique token that provides reoccurring and automatic financial rewards to its holders with a pathway for practical long-term use in everyday life." While we can't say for certain without word from the man himself whether this is the future of The Truth post-ESPN, we've reached out to his representation for more information.
