Paul Pierce on 2016 Finals: ‘Golden State Choked’

by November 02, 2016

Paul Pierce has never been known to pull punches and has lived up to his nickname as The Truth in both interviews and on the court. Pierce will be on Bill SimmonsAny Given Wednesday HBO show tonight and in the teaser for his spot, Pierce is asked if the Warriors choked away the NBA Finals.

After deliberating for a second, Pierce speaks his mind:

Golden State choked. Like, seriously, I mean 3-1? You’re not supposed to lose. Three-to-one, you should never lose. Golden State choked.

Asked then if he had ever blown a 3-1 lead, Pierce responded:

That would never happen.

Pierce has been critical of the Warriors as of late. Last month, he called out Kevin Durant for joining the Warriors, which caused Draymond Green respond to critics of KD’s move.
