Pierce on Kimmel Live!

Celtics captain and 2008 NBA Finals MVP Paul Pierce will appear on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Wednesday night.

One week after teammates Ray Allen and Kevin Garnett appeared on The Late Show with David Letterman, Pierce will continue the late-night circuit by visiting on a night Kimmel also welcomes “The Love Guru” star Mike Myers and musical guest, The All for Nots.

Before the NBA Finals began, Kimmel joked that he would eat Paul Pierce’s headband if the Celtics topped the Lakers. Check out the YouTube video at the bottom of this entry to see Kimmel follow through on his words.

Jimmy Kimmel Live! airs at 12:05 a.m. EDT on WCVB-TV, Channel 5 (which technically means early Thursday morning for Pierce’s episode).
