Rumor: Paul Pierce Punched LeBron James After Game Four

Categories: Sports

File this under "questionable rumors." There's a story spreading on social media that Paul Pierce punched LeBron James in the jaw after the game Monday night, and that ten men (!) had to stop LeBron from killing Pierce. I mean, internet rumor so hard, internet. World Star!

This really is funnier than the time people wanted to believe Blake Griffin slapped a shirtless Justin Bieber in a Starbucks. Seriously, though, we wish that Bieber story were true.

It appears the LeBron rumor began on Media Take Out. The story is as follows:

May 13, 2014: It was going DOWWWWWN last night in Brooklyn after the Miami Heat-Brooklyn game. According to one of our HOMIES THAT PLAYS ON THE BROOKLYN NETS . . . LeBron James and Paul Pierce got into it in the players tunnel after the game. Our source tells us that Paul started talking SLICK . . . and LEBRON said the wrong thing.

Then . . . BLOOP . . . Paul Pierce allegedly (not trying to get anyone fined) PUNCHED LEBRON RIGHT IN HIS JAW. Let us repeat that . .. BRON GOT SNUCK IN THE FACE!!!

According to our insider ALL HELL BROKE LOOSE when LeBron got touched . . . and Bron had to be restrained by up to 10 MEN. We're told LeBron looked like a crazed man!!

Anyways here is the BEST PART . . . somebody got it on cell phone footage. We're in the process of BIDDING FOR THE FOOTAGE right now . . . but TMZ got way deeper pockets than we do. Either way, expect to see it either HERE or THERE before the day is up. If any of y'all wanna give us a couple of dollars . . . . maybe we can BEAT THEM OUT this time. Sheesh, can we get at least ONE of these tapes. #TheirPocketsIsDEEPTho#

OK, first of all, you would think if that many people had to hold LeBron back, you would have heard about it happening by now. You know, because the Miami Heat and its surroundings are sort of paid attention to 24/7.

Second, LeBron James did a postgame presser and looked calm as could be -- no sign whatsoever he was just in a "scrum" in the tunnel. He actually looks tired, which tends to happen sometimes when you score 49 points in 43 minutes.

Is there any chance in the world this happened? Just the other day, LeBron, in response to some of the smack Paul Pierce was talking to the media following the Heat's game-three loss in Brooklyn, said, "I let my game do the talking". He did just that in game four, so to think he felt the need to seek out Pierce and tell him about it in the tunnel afterward is pretty far-fetched.

Everyone have a good laugh? Good. Now let's enjoy the Heat clinching its fourth consecutive Eastern Conference finals tonight. Nothing to see here. Well, unless the cell-phone footage of this is actually real; then there's something else to see, I guess.

Would you like to know more about Bigfoot and the mafia? If so read my family biography "Surviving Bigfoot and the Dixie Mafia." My true book was written from journals, diaries, and interviews. It is sold out in paperback, however you can read it free online from six stores.

Yeah but the series is not tied and thats what legendary players do they elevate there games when most needed, case in point the other night ! FYI Wade had Shaq one of the best centers in the history of the NBA , so he didn't win it alone! So what does this mean ? Nets start there summer vacation today !

Peter Traini players leave teams all the time to win a ring. I respect him more for chasing a ring instead of a huge payoff w/ a team that has no chance just for the sake of being paid big bucks. Furthermore, no one has ever won it alone. I bet if he wouldve signed w/ your team you would have little to say

As the king whatever as the main piece on a team you make others shine n bring out their strength. LeBron failed in Cleveland because he wasn't strong mentally. Wade made others around him shine hence why he won first. LeBron has been smarter with his game since in miami but man if he didn't explode last game. It's sad they need him to have that type of game to even Stay in the game. Dumb execution by nets in the end or series would be tied

Yeah, okay. That is the funniest thing I heard. I just woke up and I needed that laugh to start my day. I am a Celtic fan, but I am a LeBron fan. People need to lay off of him. LeBron has more class than most of these NBA players. Paul Pierce punching Lebron, lol...
