Horford to Pierce: Where’s My Money?

According to Al Horford, Paul Pierce owes him $10K because he successfully wagered that the Hawks would win a game against Boston in their heated Playoff series last season. Somewhere, Pete Rose is rolling over in his grave: “It’s hard to forget the heated exchange between Paul Pierce and Al Horford in Game 3 of the 2008 NBA Playoffs against the Atlanta Hawks. The series went seven intense games — three more than Paul Pierce gave the Hawks, according to Horford. As Horford and teammate Marvin Williams chatted it up today on ‘Mayhem in the AM,’ the morning sports show on Atlanta’s 790 The Zone, that incident came up in the conversation. Horford said that during the series, he and Pierce were at the free throw line and the Celtics veteran bet Horford, then a rookie, that the Hawks wouldn’t win a game. The wager, Horford said, was for $10,000. Horford said he hasn’t talked to Pierce since, ‘But I know he owes me money.”‘

    the truth apparently doesn’t pay up; Horford would probably blow the stacks on some skrippers anyway…

    Horford’s statement is both random and funny. I hope he is playing around by saying that b/c how many times have we been in a game and throw out a dare/bet that neither party really pays attention too? I’m going to call a few old players and ask for my money they owe me b/c they said that they bet I wouldn’t “place random event here”.. lol. I call that character assasination. hahaha.

    How bad is your team when you’re betting you can win “one” game of a 7-game series?

  • rainman10

    He wasn’t betting they would win one game. The Truth just told him they wouldn’t win one, and bet him money.

  • Yesse
