One of several new ventures entered into by the champion Celtic since leaving his job as a broadcaster with ESPN earlier this year, Pierce’s cannabis products are to be as reliable as the Inglewood native was at the end of games, according to the man himself. “I know we’re going to bring something you can depend on, something you can go to, something that’s clutch,” he said at the promotional appearance Sunday courtesy of local station WHDH.
“Similar to my play,” he added with a wry smile. That’s what my product is going to be.”
With Pierce helping to lead the charge against the stigma of cannabis use in the city he rose to fame as an NBA player, we can see the former Celtic establishing a new reputation of excellence in another context where his job is represented by a very different sort of green.
