ESPN is part of Walt Disney, it is then important for them to keep a family-friendly type of image to the public, and to make sure all their affiliations play the game too…
On the other hand, we cannot deny that Pierce had a great 19-year NBA career. He last played with the Los Angeles Clippers, but signed a 1 day and ceremonial contract with the Celtics so he could retire as part of this team.
For a very long time, the Truth was the face of the Celtics franchise and has been rewarded by winning the 2008 championship against their long-time rival, the Los Angeles Lakers. During this era, Pierce played alongside Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen and took over the league.
