Paul Pierce Is The Ultimate Troll

The cold hard Truth!

Paul Pierce is an NBA legend. A veteran of the highest order. A superb player on the court, and phenomenal teammate. But after the Washington Wizards surprising 4-0 sweep of the terribly under-performing Toronto Raptors, we learned that not only is Pierce a staple of what it means to be a player in the NBA, but that he’s also a grade-A, highly certified, 100% troll.

Kamal Hylton – Recapping Fantastic First Season with NBA Nation Australia 

By: Kamal Hylton (@KamalHylton)

With the regular season quickly coming to a close, I thought this would be a good time to recap what was a fantastic first season of coverage for NBA Nation Australia.

I can’t thank the guys enough for bringing me on board, the big boss man Nick Caro, fellow writer Nick How teaching me Aussie phrases and lingo to use during interviews, Pumpa and Boof from the Hoops Podcast allowing me to share my experience on the show and all the other guys for helping spread the word.

Most of all, I thank the rest of the Aussie hoops community and fans of the site for genuinely appreciating the coverage. Knowing that you’re loving the work that we’re doing over here means a lot and isn’t taken for granted, I can tell you first hand that having support like this isn’t the case over here in North America. Through sharing   this season with you guys a part of me feels Australian, my next step is to actually make the flight over there.

During one of the most tumultuous seasons in Lakers history, there has been little to cheer about for fans of the much fabled franchise. 

One of the few joys still afforded to the fans however, is a well rested and rejuvenated Kobe Bryant who, while shooting a career low…. is as aggressive and determined as ever. That was on full display yesterday as Bryant carved out his 20th career triple double, while also becoming the only member of the 30k+ points club to eclipse 6,000 assists. Not bad for a 36 year old right?
