ESPN's Paul Pierce Went Live With Strippers, Now Rachel Nichols is Trending

If you've checked Twitter, you may have noticed ESPN's Paul Pierce is trending after he went live on Instagram with exotic dancers.

On Saturday, Twitter's trending page shows Pierce is "trending with" with ESPN's Rachel Nichols after a user asked during the live stream, "Where Rachel Nichols at?"

During the live stream that showed Pierce surrounded by exotic dancers, it also appears that some of his friends were with him to play poker — this could explain why poker chips were being thrown at the dancers in the video.

Individuals pointed out that Pierce is married with children, to the best of everyone's knowledge.

Someone replied to that tweet: "People can do their own thing outside of work but probably not smart to go IG live with strippers twerking their ass when your with ESPN."

Other people took to social media to show support for Pierce but said maybe he shouldn't have been live streaming it.

Other fans are just making light of the situation:

Pierce has been an ESPN NBA analyst for the network’s NBA coverage on NBA Countdown and The Jump since retiring from the NBA in 2017.

He previously played for the Celtics, Nets, Wizards and Clippers.
