Paul Pierce on Wednesday confessed to a long-standing conspiracy theory about a notorious moment in NBA Finals history: the wheelchair game.
In Game 1 of the 2008 Finals, Pierce, then with the Boston Celtics, drove to the basket against the Los Angeles Lakers. He took a hit and fell to the ground and stayed down.
Pierce appeared injured, was carried off the court, then taken to the locker room in a wheelchair.
After a brief moment in the locker room, Pierce ran back out onto the court on his own and helped lead the Celtics to a 98-88 win.
Fans were surprised. How could a player who seemed to have suffered a game, heck series ending injury recover that quickly?
Paul Pierce, who goes by the nickname “The Truth” decided to finally be truthful about the 2008 incidence.
“I have a confession to make,” Pierce said on ESPN on Wednesday before Game 2 of the 2019 NBA Finals. “I just had to go to the bathroom.”
