Paul Pierce mocks LeBron James on Twitter

Boston forward Paul Pierce makes fun of Miami's LeBron James's "Decision" on Twitter after the Celtics beat the Heat on Thursday night. Posted by Ben Golliver

Nothing tastes sweeter than a big win in a rivalry game, and the Boston Celtics are surely exuberant after dominating the Miami Heat in their own house on Thursday night in front of a national television audience. Pierce finished with 25 points on the night, and turned to Twitter for some post-game trash talking after the game. "It's been a pleasure to bring my talents to South Beach, now on to Memphis," Pierce tweeted.  The tweet is a clear reference to "The Decision," a televised special in which Miami forward LeBron James announced to the world that he would be leaving the Cavaliers to join the Heat using the phrase, "I'm taking my talents to South Beach." paul-pierce-twitter James' arrival in Miami was supposed to establish a Heat dynasty, one capable of overcoming Boston's aging Big Three of Pierce, Ray Allen and Kevin Garnett. It hasn't worked out that way so far, as the Celtics are up in the season series 2-0, thanks to fantastic play from point guard Rajon Rondo and some unorganized, inefficient and inconsistent offense for Miami. Pierce has every right to throw this jab, as James opened himself up completely to criticism and jokes by making his free agency decision in such a public manner. And because Pierce has won an NBA title, whereas James has not. Call this one of the spoils of being a victor.  For James, silence is the best response. It's time for James to join his Heat teammates in licking their collective wounds and to start figuring out how to stack up some Ws, given their 5-4 record on the season is well below their own lofty expectations. As Pierce mentioned, the Celtics conclude their current four-game road trip against the Grizzlies on Saturday night in Memphis.

The best part was Udonis Haslem's "Paul who?" when he heard what Pierce said. That's rich coming from Whodonis "Millsap ate me alive and renamed my kids" Haslem. Pierce is the guy with more rings than LeBron. Paul who? Yeah, right. Then he ranted about Pierce being a studio gangster. You know, because Haslem is clearly a gangster or something. Check the scoreboard, son. Paul "2 - 0" Pierce. That's who.

Boston did do something. They beat the SELF proclaimed dynasty. Captain2, you really need to take hooked on phonics.  Your spelling and abbreviation is for shame.

"It's been a pleasure to bring my talents to South Beach, now on to Memphis."

That's just hilarious.

I love this.  Paul Pierce is the man.  I was just wondering how many more losses until Pat Riley swoops in and becomes the coach?  I don't think starting 5-4 is a huge deal, considering the season is 82 games.  Nonetheless, you know Riles is just waiting for a time that he can take control and try to add another championship to his coaching career.  It really felt like a screw-job when he fired Stan Van Gundy a few years ago, I can't help but feel Spoelstra is next.

Do us all a favor, pack up your pc, keyboard, mouse and any internet devices, put them in a box and donate it to goodwill.  Please never post again - you are a waste of space on these boards.

Wow.....just think, the way Haslem is outplaying Bosh (and Bosh having "talks" with Queen Lebronica about his "role" on this ":team"), the Heat could've said all those millions wasted on Bosh and got something that would actually help them win a few games....like a center.

Yeah Captain2, it sucks in Boston.  They make you finish 3rd grade around here, learn to spell and create coherent sentences.  But seriously, the Tweet was pretty funny.  Although don't think it won't come back to bite the C's in the azz one game.  I wish they'd just win games and be quiet, like the Pats.  Don't draw so much attention to yourselves.  Look what it's doing to the heat.
