Paul Pierce’s Twitter account became a big topic after a big win. The Paul Pierce Twitter page was bound to be viewed a lot since Pierce helped lead the Celtics to another big victory. All of a sudden, the Celtics now look like decided favorites to go back to the finals and perhaps to win their most unlikely championship yet. But first, they actually have to finish off the Magic and not let them off the hook. Yet for a while, most thought the latest Paul Pierce Twitter message indicated far too much confidence in that goal.
Not long after the Celtics’ 95-92 win, the star’s Twitter page said “Anybody got a BROOM?” That has suddenly become a common question, since the Celtics took two in Orlando and now have all the momentum going into Games 3 and 4 in Boston. Followers can start to ask if a sweep is possible – but its another thing to have a Celtics’ star hint at it.
Yet the Paul Pierce Twitter taunts were later found to be frauds since many did not believe he actually Tweeted this. His digital branding agency, Athlete Interactive, later confirmed that his account had been hacked. Pierce’s last real post was on May 13, after the Celtics eliminated the Cavaliers as he merely said the Celtics were ‘halfway home.’
Given that careful boast, most figured that the Paul Pierce Twitter posts last night weren’t legitimate since it didn’t sound like something he’d say. But whoever did post that question represents the kind of overconfidence Boston, and Pierce, can’t afford to have right now.
All looks good right now for the Celtics, as they can indeed sweep the Magic at home. But Orlando looked dominant going into this series, and things quickly turned the wrong way for them. In addition, the city of Boston just saw the Bruins give up a 3-0 lead to the Flyers, so most fans should be wary about jumping the gun.
No matter what, Paul Pierce’s Twitter probably won’t have any boasts or early proclamations, especially after last night. Orlando and coach Stan Van Gundy hardly need any bulletin board material to get them back on their feet. Yet given the way the Celtics’ stars have risen up in the playoffs, and given the Magic’s recent mental mistakes, it may take more than a fake Tweet to fire Orlando back up.
For now, the Paul Pierce Twitter account remains update free since May 13. But the Celtics have a few days off before coming back to Boston on Saturday, so Pierce could have some free time on his hands.
