Paul Pierce Issues Statement On Gesture Controversy

I don’t want to take the focus away from the playoffs. In sports, emotions run high. After playing for 10 years in Boston, I think Celtics fans know that I am a passionate player.

I 100% do not in any way promote gang violence or anything close to it. I am sorry if it was misinterpreted that way at Saturday’s game.

In fact, through my Truth foundation I am committed to giving back to youth groups and making sure young people have the opportunities to succeed in life.

I am extremely proud of the work I have done through the foundation to provide positive influences and safe havens for inner city kids.
