NBA Hall of Famer, Paul Pierce, had a rough Friday night. His Los Angeles home was hit by robbers, TMZ Sports reports. They made off with over $100,000 in cash and some pretty swanky watches.

Pierce wasn’t even home when it happened. The cops told TMZ that the burglars managed to swipe a safe too. Talk about bold.

Right now, the police are on the hunt, pouring over video footage from Pierce’s security cams. So far, no one’s been caught.

“Paul Pierce’s L.A. Home Burglarized, Watches, $100K In Cash Stolen | Click to read more” — TMZ tweeted this on March 19, 2024.

Officers are digging deep, hoping to find that one clue that’ll crack the case wide open, according to TMZ. It’s like something out of a detective show, isn’t it?

Interestingly, Pierce isn’t the first celeb in LA to be targeted. Yasiel Puig, Rihanna, Bella Thorne, Post Malone, Drake, Quentin Tarantino… the list goes on. Seems like the City of Angels has a bit of a dark side.

The LAPD’s even issued a warning about “burglary tourists.” Apparently, folks are flying in from South America just to rob the rich and famous. The Los Angeles Times has the scoop on that.

LAPD Chief Dominic Choi was pretty upfront about it. He said there’s a noticeable uptick in these organized burglaries, with groups coming from outside the country to target high-end homes.

Now, this isn’t the first time Pierce has been a victim. Back in September 2000, he was stabbed 11 times and had to undergo lung surgery. And yet, he’s had an incredible career.

Pierce, known as “The Truth,” played 19 seasons in the NBA. He’s a 10-time All-Star and was pivotal in the Celtics’ 2008 NBA Finals win over the Lakers. He even snagged the Finals MVP title.

“Paul Pierce returns tomorrow on Undisputed.” — Skip Bayless tweeted this on March 19, 2024.

After retiring, Pierce joined ESPN as a studio analyst. He was on “The Jump” and “NBA Countdown,” even guest-analyzing during the NBA Finals.

But in 2021, ESPN fired him after a controversial Instagram Live video. It featured Pierce at a poker game with women in bikinis, drinking, and smoking. Definitely not ESPN’s cup of tea.

Now, Pierce is with FS1’s “Undisputed,” alongside Skip Bayless and others. He’s also co-hosting a podcast with Kevin Garnett, his former Celtics teammate. Life after controversy, it seems, goes on.
