Pierce jokes around on Kimmel

Paul Pierce engaged in some fun during his appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! Wednesday evening.

The Celtics captain had a nurse cart him out in a wheelchair for his interview on the late-night program. Clutching the NBA Finals MVP trophy, Pierce sprang to his feet and threw his hands in the air as he reached the interview dais where Kimmel, a professed Laker fan, smiled from behind his desk.

Pierce kept the trophy on Kimmel’s desk during an interview filled with friendly banter. Check out the video above for a clip from the show, or read this article from today’s Globe.

To watch the entire interview, hop over to ABC’s website, click on Jimmy Kimmel Live! and find the June 25 episode (which also featured “The Love Guru” star Mike Myers).
