Pierce Mocks LeBron’s “The Decision” on Twitter

Just a few months ago, LeBron James stated on his nationally televised, one-hour special that he “was taking his talents to South Beach.” Last night, after beating the Miami Heat for the second time already this season, Celtics’ captain Paul Pierce posted on the following tweet on his Twitter account:

“It’s been a pleasure to bring my talents to south beach now onto Memphis.”

It’s a little bit of mockery from The Truth while adding in the C’s upcoming game against the Grizzlies on Saturday.

The Celtics are known for having one of the league’s biggest trash talkers in Kevin Garnett, but Pierce as well is not unfamiliar with the territory. He clearly found LeBron’s television special this summer ridiculous and felt the need to put him in his place after the Celtics gained an early 2-0 season series lead on Miami. Not to say that James had a bad game with 35 points, 10 rebounds, and 9 assists, so his talent in South Beach was still evident. James has yet to react to the tweet, but will most likely save it for when the two teams meet again in Boston on February 13th.

Boston fans and the rest of the Miami Heat haters probably found the tweet hilarious, while the Heat themselves did not think too highly of it. Their team clearly has issues finding chemistry amongst the league’s new Big Three, and last night it showed with James having to take over. Whether or not the Celtics will be able to make it a 3-0 series lead in February is still not known. The two teams will be in different places from where they currently are, but still expect some kind of reaction to Pierce’s tweet from James. Pierce and the rest of the Celtics will have to make sure they don’t swallow Pierce’s words (or rather tweets) when next these two teams meet.
