â†µA few sports blogs ran with it, with one intrepid fellow even suggesting -- without merit -- Pierce had been stoned. (We're definitely getting more responsible, yeah?) The biggest yuks come from questions about why Pierce would ditch his ride after being exonerated of drunken guilt. 72% of TMZ's brilliant audience thinks "something fishy" has gone down in Pierce's release.
â†µI don't get it. If Pierce was a little drunk, why are we cutting him up for hailing a cab? If he just, I don't know, didn't want to get pulled over again for Driving While Young, Black and Rich ... can you blame him?
â†µThe TMZ-ization of the sports blogdome is not something we should strive for, people. The NBA has enough image problems without the invention of fake ones for cheap giggles.â†µ
