Hall of Famer Paul Pierce told The Athletic’s Michelle Beadle he didn’t poop his pants during Game 1 of the 2008 NBA Finals, after insinuating he did in 2019.
The situation in question occurred during the third quarter of Game 1 against the Los Angeles Lakers, when Pierce tripped over teammate’s Kendrick Perkins feet after defending a Kobe Bryant jump shot.
But after only 1:45 of game action, Pierce reentered the game with a knee wrap and earned a raucous reception from the TD Garden crowd.
Paul Pierce just finally admitted the famous wheechair incident was because he had to go poop pic.
Sorry to bust y’all haters bubble but the only 💩💩💩💩Ing I did June 5 2008 was on the Lakers #factz #haterzgonnahate #😂😂😂

The poop-or-no-poop argument continued, despite Pierce’s denial.
