Earlier today, a Chinese report stated that Paul Pierce and Michael Beasley had undergone an asthma attack while playing in a cigarette smoke-filled Chinese stadium. That report was incorrect, says Pierce.
“Me and Mike had a great trip to china,” Pierce tweeted, “and since when did I ever have asthma?”
Fair enough. The Truth has spoken. But his confession reopened one mystery:
If Pierce did not have an asthma attack, how did he only score three points in the consolation game of the Chinese Intercontinental Basketball Tournament?
The world may never know.
