Former Celtics star Paul Pierce dresses up as Rick James for Halloween, crashes a couch
Paul Pierce doesn’t care about your couch.
The former Boston Celtics star and current Los Angeles Clipper recently dressed up as Rick James for Halloween. And if that awesome costume wasn’t enough, he pulled a page out of the Chappelle’s Show and decided to fuck up the couch belonging to his neighbor, Anthony Tiffith, CEO of Top Dawg Entertainment.
Why? Because Tiffith could buy another one, probably.
“This is what happens when your next door neighbor Is Rick James aka @paulpierce and he come over to ask if ur shoulder ok,” Tiffith writes on Instagram, “then out of nowhere he start screaming fuck your couch, I’m Rick James bitch 😂😂😂😂😂😂 I had to throw this nigga out lmao.. kids plz say no to drugs… #dopecostume my nigga.”
The couch diss, of course, is from the legendary Chappelle’s Show episode where Charlie Murphy recalls his True Hollywood Story encounters with Rick James back in the ’80s. As the legend goes, James, played by Chappelle, drags his muddy-ass platform boots across Eddie Murphy’s brand new suede couch.
Fuck yo’ couch? We probably didn’t need to tell you that.
Here’s a better look at Pierce’s get-up. Give it to him, baby. [h/t SOSH]
