    PAUL PIERCE ENDS A HEROIC RUN AT THE WORLD SERIES OF POKER

    http://probasketballtalk.nbcsports.com/2011/07/12/paul-pierce-knocked-out-of-world-series-of-poker/related

    SUMMARY:
    After surviving the first day of the World Series of Poker on Sunday, Pierce was eliminated from the main event early Tuesday morning. The Celtics’ captain spent over 17 hours at the table during two days of action and survived longer than about half of the field of over 2,000 players. He lost after going all in on a pair of 2s.

    MAXWELL'S TAKE:
    thinks pp will be worse of than antoine if he gets too much deeper into this. 

    i dont think so. i think pierce is doing this for the adrenaline and the mental competition. he can do this well into his post-basketball career as long as he's smart and disciplined on when to fold them and whom to play with. fits perfectly with his personality and temperament.

    I was very impressed by Paul even trying to compete with some of the best poker players in the world.  Although, I am not surprised that he was eliminated and didn't make it further.  Maybe this is something that he will continue to pursue when he retires.

    Why would you call Paul's 2 days at the WSOP Heroic?
    What a terribly incorrect usage of the word Heroic.

    heroic in the same way jordan going to play baseball was heroic. sometimes we are heroic just by risking failure and trying to triumph against odds. most of those 2000 entrants were world-class players from all over the world who compete year round. i dont believe the odds were in paul's favor to get pass the first day nor to last for 17 hours.. also liked how he went out, by going all in.. in a different way, this is up there with getting off the wheel chair and hitting 2 threes, coming back even better after multiple stabbings, going mano a man against bron for 41 in game 7 and closing out the fakers in 2008 for the MVP... the truth is ALWAYS all in!

    I am always concerned when I read of an athlete gambling.  It is a disease, like all the others.  Extreme caution should be given, and the Celtics should possibly intervene now.  I am optimistic this won't  be a problem, but many athletes have addictive personalities, and it just raises my inner red flag when I read of such things.

    Pierce is a gamer and he's fearless. I think he'll make a good GM one day.

    A millionaire athlete playing poker in Vegas during his extended vacation is heroic?  Planting your big azz for 17 hours over two days in an air-conditioned casino with occasional drinks doesn't make you a hero.  This has got to be the dumbest thread of them all.

    thats more like it.. he would be better than MJ. i'm going on record.. PIERCE will ULTIMATELY make a better GM than MJ! to me, its better when a guy is open and out there doing stuff than when hiding as an amateur. he's hanging with professionals and advisors. sure his accountants and advisors are watching his loot. cant imagine a kobe or bron doing this for they are so afraid of never failing at anything. PP just do what he do. is what he is. no fakin, no prancin.. keeps it real.. that is the TRUTH, the ehole TRUTH and nothing but the TRUTH!

    What a stupid assessment.  Take advantage of what?  Have you been to the Philippines moron?  It's a hot muggy developing country.  Kobe doesn't have to go there and sweat.  He could've easily chosen to squat in a cozy casino and order drinks.

    And just how much money does PP need?  He already makes $14 million for 8 months of work.

    Just more stupidity from ignorant fans.

    Save your sanctimonious drivel for the gullible.  PP is no more "the Truth" than the Grand Wizard of the KKK "the Tolerant".

    Kobe is being paid to go to the Philippines. Why else would he go to the Philippines? For the "hot" and the "muggy"?Laughing

    MANILA, Philippines – NBA superstar Kobe Bryant of LA Lakers arrived in the country yesterday for his 5-city Nike tour. The Philippines is his first destination.

    Kobe Bryant doesn't do anything for free. He even paid for sex in Colorado a few years back.Embarassed

    Not that it matters to an ignorant person like yourself but Kobe has offered time and money for these charities, among others:

    Come to think of it, I think playing poker in a comfy Las Vegas Casino is much more noble, yes?

    Hate to say it, but you're lying. You could have at least checked it out. 

    The Philippines has a tropical maritime climate and is usually hot and humid. There are three seasons: tag-init or tag-araw, the hot dry season or summer from March to May; tag-ulan, the rainy season from June to November; and tag-lamig, the cool dry season from December to February.

    Thanks for the expert advice Weatherman.  Have you ever been there in the summertime?  I know some Philiphinos.  I've been to Korea, Taiwan, Vietnam, and the Philippines.  But why would you believe me?  I'm just a Lakers fan.

    Pay attention.  A poster said kobe doesn't do anything unless he gets paid and I offered him a list of charities he supports, and most of them are not Nike events.  Comprende?

    I don't believe you not because you're a Laker fan, I don't believe you because what you said is not accurate. It's not summertime in the Philippines at this time of the year. 

    And they are called Filipinos, not Philiphinos. 

    I already gave you a link and you didn't even bother to check it out, again!

    Fellows - I guess if we don't want to be labeled sanctimonious, moron, idiot or dimwit, we'd best lay off the immortal koME Bean Bryant.  He who can do NO wrong in the eyes of lakers fan.  Wonderful father, husband of the year,  altruistic human being, and all-around great teammate, he rivals only Magic Johnson in his humnaitarian efforts.  How DARE we, on a Celtics board, diss the awesome-ness that is His Kobe-ness!  What are we thinking.  We are all nitwits, dimwits, half-wits, vipers, snipers, morons, haters and mentally-challenged people.  I INSIST we lay off koME Bean Bryant - c'mon, men!!

    Kobe is already in Seoul.

    NBA star Kobe Bryant arrived in Seoul on Thursday as part of an Asian tour organized by his sponsor Nike to promote basketball here. 

    The LA Lakers guard arrived in Gimpo Airport on his private jet around 11 a.m. Thursday.

    I think even nitwits will have to agree that Kobe Bryant went to the Philippines on business, not pleasure. It makes sense, if Kobe loved the Philippines so much he would have stayed for a couple of days. But less than 24 hours later Kobe is already in Seoul.
