Paul Pierce uses two smartphones at dunk contest, does not help his old man reputation

Paul Pierce is one of the oldest players in the NBA, and he has a reputation for being a little behind the times.

During Saturday night’s dunk contest, the 39-year-old former Celtics forward (now with the Los Angeles Clippers) was pictured court-side simultaneously using two smartphones.  Given the well-documented history of his questionable grasp of how social media works, Old Man Pierce again became a meme.

Maybe he was trying to tweet more takes about the Dunk Contest?

Or maybe he’s still trying to figure out how to post photos.

Or perhaps it was a sign Pierce is interested in working in a front office after he retires this year?

Hopefully, we get another Players’ Tribune article explaining his reasoning.
