Paul Pierce may no longer be an NBA player, but he still knows how to brutalize Brandon Jennings when the moment’s right. Pierce went after Jennings Friday on ESPN after a harmless Jennings tweet was used as the alley in the proverbial alley-oop.

The whole thing started when Jennings tweeted that he would be playing pickup basketball in New York on Friday.

Harmless enough, right? Jennings later tweeted out a live Instagram video link to watch it, so we know this is actually a thing that happened. But then ESPN’s The Jump mentioned the tweet on Friday, and, well, it must have been said only to tee up Paul Pierce because he was very ready to throw some shade his way.
