Paul Pierce is a TV analyst now, but before the 4th quarter of the Celtics Game 7 home loss to the Cavs he had his Boston fan hat on. A video surfacing online today shows Pierce getting up from his baseline seat and leaning in to give LeBron an earful. James didn’t respond to the yapping, but did proceed to crush the Celtics.

It’s not clear if Pierce was talking trash or just saying hi, but given the contentious history between the two and other video of an animated Pierce talking the talk throughout the game it looks like a case of keeping it real gone wrong. Everyone already knows how this one turned out.
