ESPN NBA analyst Paul Pierce is known for being one of the more hot-takey analysts on the network.
Usually, these hot takes have to do with basketball. Pierce is getting crushed for what a non-basketball related comment tonight, though.
Pierce said Stephen Curry “joking” the moon landing didn’t happen was a dumber comment than Kyrie Irving believing the Earth is flat.
ESPN host Michelle Beadle then asked Pierce if he actually believed the Earth was flat.
“No comment,” Pierce responded.
On NBA Countdown, Michelle Beadle asked Paul Pierce if the Earth is flat. Pierce responded with "no comment." … 😐 #NBATwitter

Pierce’s nickname, for those unaware, is “The Truth.”
That should probably be taken away if he seriously believes the Earth is flat.
