Paul Pierce Not Surprised By LeBron’s Red Sox Ownership: ‘Fitting For Him To Continue To Own Boston’

CBS Local


Article Summary:

BOSTON – Paul Pierce and LeBron James had a nice little rivalry going for a while, though LeBron certainly got the better of The Truth in the latter stages of Pierce’s career.

“It doesn’t surprise me because LeBron has continued to own Boston since my playing days,” Pierce joked during a Zoom interview with WBZ-TV’s Steve Burton. “How fitting for him to continue to own Boston. We can’t wait for him to retire.”

While he wasn’t the biggest fan of James during his playing days, and occasionally makes a rash comment or 12 about LeBron’s legacy in his second career as an NBA analyst, Pierce said it’s great that James is paving the way for other athletes – especially Black athletes – to enter into the world of team ownership. “I’d like to see more Black owners in the business, especially since a lot of the Black athletes have done so much to increase profitability and personal growth for a lot of these owners. Why not give them a chance to be part of these ownership groups?”

It’s something Pierce would like to get involved in sometime in the near future.
