Shaquille O’Neal laughed when he talked about former teammate Paul Pierce on live television. Pierce has been one of the most famous in the NBA community since last Friday when he appeared on Instagram Live with multiple strippers.
That situation quickly escalated and The Truth was fired from ESPN a few days after its video saw the light. Now everyone is wondering what’s next for the Boston Celtics icon or making memes about him.
Well, O’Neal is one of those who still can’t believe Pierce threw it all away for a number of onlookers, and he couldn’t hide his laugh when he talked about Paul and brought up something unrelated to the controversy had to do, the Pierce was playing in.
“Ok, then we’ll all focus on Paul Pierce … Paul Pierce,” Shaq said while he and the rest of the Inside the NBA crew tried not to laugh.

O’Neal shared with Pierce in 2011, a season he admitted to chasing a ring. It’s unclear if Shaq saw the 2008 NBA champion doing these things when they were teammates, but now everyone has seen what a Friday night looks like for The Truth, now that he’s an analyst.
