NBA Lockout Report: Paul Pierce, The High Stakes Poker Player

By AJ / 07.11.11

As Andrew Bynum tries his hand at becoming Mike Tyson XL, Paul Pierce is keeping himself busy during the NBA lockout by playing cards. A participant in the 2011 World Series of Poker held in Vegas, Pierce is reportedly cleaning up, more than doubling his earnings in a single session of play.

Pierce has been an avid poker player for a while now, to the point where the 2008 NBA Finals MVP credits it for boosting his on-court game: “It helps me on the basketball court, to be more patient and to be more of a thinking player and to be smarter out there,” says Pierce. However, other WSOP competitors should be aware that Pierce could easily fake an injury if he’s dealt a bad hand.
