ESPN fired NBA analyst and Boston Celtics legend Paul Pierce for attending a maskless party on his day off over the Easter weekend.

The Instagram live video shows the 43-year-old married father-of-three drinking at a party with exotic dancers.

The video shows Pierce getting a back rub from one busty dancer while another scantily clad woman was seen twerking on the floor behind him.

The room was full of ball players being entertained by the women.

"Oh my god," said a friend who watched Pierce's live-stream of the party. Pierce urged one absent dancer to fall through.

"Monica, you should be here. You could make some money, girl. Stop playing," he said.

None of the partygoers wore face masks. One vlogger suggested that the corporate media -- "Wanting to control athletes" -- will "demonize" Pierce for declining to comply with the political agenda.

The news that ESPN terminated Pierce's employment was first reported by Front Office Sports on Monday. Reps for Pierce declined to comment on Pierce's departure.

Pierce led the Celtics to an NBA title in 2008. He was named NBA MVP that season.

He joined ESPN full-time in 2018 after retiring from the NBA in 2017. Pierce was a regular on ESPN's sports programs, "NBA Countdown" and Rachel Nichols' show "The Jump."

On Monday night, he posted a video of himself laughing on Twitter with the message: "Big things coming soon stay tuned make sure u smile. #Truthshallsetufree."

Doc Rivers Son Defends Him On Twitter

The sports world is buzzing today about the dismantling of the NBA's Boston Celtics. The team's stars Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce were traded to the Brooklyn Nets, while their coach Doc Rivers is heading to the Los Angeles Clippers.

ESPN's Bill Simmons took Rivers' departure unusually hard during a mini meltdown on ESPN's live coverage of the NBA draft.

"I would like to call him a idiot but I'm too classy for that, said Rivers, responding to Simmons' comment that Rivers "quit" on the Celtics.

The last time I checked, this was still a free country where a coach has the freedom to accept a $21 million contract to take his talents to another team.
