Although they were playing without the point guard, Rajon Rondo, the Boston Celtics tied their playoff series against the Atlanta Hawks at 1-1, thanks in large part to a huge game by Paul Pierce, who finished with 36 points and 14 rebounds. Pierce got the Celtics rolling by scoring his team's first nine points of the game; and while Pierce's statistical dominance deserves all of the praise it is getting, when he busted out the Tim Tebow pose at midcourt, Pierce's in-game dominance took a back seat.
As you can see in the lead image, there's no mistaking Pierce's pose. There is, of course, video of Pierce Tebowing, just in case the image isn't enough for you:
As is the case with anything sports related, especially the NBA, Twitter has been on fire with reaction, with many following the theme of "Tebow is so last year." Others, who are apparently still mad at Pierce for beating the Lakers in 2008, took the opportunity to remind us they are unwilling to let the past go, right Jim Rome?
Paul Pierce was Tebowing? Oh. I thought he was waiting for his wheelchair pick up.
Haters still wanna hate, apparently.
Celtics best the Hawks but the headline is about Paul Pierce tebowing. They won't get off dudes nuts smh.
You can blame Pierce for that.
It's nice that Paul Pierce pay tribute by "Tebowing" during the game. A guy who makes bounce passes, respected a guy who makes bounce passes
Is that a burn?
Paul Pierce "Tebowed" during playoff game tonight, now plans to take Mark Sanchez's job in September.
Poor Sanchize. It's all over for him the moment he throws his first interception, at least he will be in the eyes of Jets fans.
Paul Pierce "Tebowed" during a game. So what? I can't wait until Metta World Ron Artest Peace comes back and "Amare's" someone.
Does everything have to become a meme? As for Pierce, he's just tired.
