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 a decentralized ERC-20 growth token built on the secure Ethereum network. We launched eMax with a vision to bridge the gap between the emergence of community tokens and the well-known core coins of crypto, creating a unique token that provides recurring and automatic financial rewards to its holders with a path for use. long-term practice in everyday life. “
Pierce didn’t get bogged down in explaining the crypto jargon above, he claims he has already done very well with this new cryptocurrency that didn’t exist until May 14th.
His tweet continued, “I made more money with this crypto last month than I did with all of you in a year. The truth will set you free 🤪🤪 my own boss http://EthereumMax.org check it out for yourself. “
Some Twitter users, however, took a very opposite view of the new cryptocurrency and looked down upon her and Pierce for being involved in what they called a scam. One of them said, “Brother, how is that possible when I bought for $ 500 on May 16th the first day now, it is worth $ 20, its a scam if you are serious about my brother? “, and someone else said,” All those steps to buy it lol it’s an outright scam. Paul Pierce really hits 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 shilling a coin with some 2 trillion tokens in circulation. But you did your due diligence, so you already knew that. Hang up already. “
After 19 seasons on 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 2017-18. 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 as 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 part ways with 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, who is the vice president of adult entertainment website CamSoda, offered Pierce a new job to be their “first 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. Inside the NBA, be damned.
Parker was not only offering $ 250,000, but 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 unclear if Pierce has reached out to discuss the terms, but it looks like between his new cryptocurrency business and CamSoda, some interesting turns await him in the future.
