Soon-to-be inducted Hall of Famer Paul Pierce is planning a podcast with Kevin Garnett

By Justin Quinn

If idle hands are the devil’s playground, post-NBA retirement Paul Pierce is mounting quite the defense despite how a certain incident leading to his exit from ESPN might have you believe.

Unapologetic as ever about that and everything else he has been up to since leaving the sport where he spent 19 seasons playing in a recent, candid interview with Sports Illustrated’s Chris Mannix, The Truth shed some light on yet another potential venture. And it isn’t like he’s been a recluse desperately in need of something to keep him busy either — even discounting homegrown broadcasts of exotic dancers, gambling, and sensimilla.

Speaking of the seedless, smokable pastime, Pierce has of course been keeping plenty busy with his new brand of cannabis products sporting the nickname bestowed on him by former teammate Shaquille O’Neal.
