I have a rule about writing an obituary on someone getting destroyed into oblivion, getting sonned by a superhuman feat, getting dunked on with no regard for human life, or any other form of egregious embarrassment.

To that degree, I was working my usual 9 o’clock shift on The Unsportsmanlike Conduct Show, and I missed when Paul Pierce got YULEEEEEEEE’d on by Andre Iguodala in Game Six of the Eastern Conference Semifinals. The texts started coming in, tweets began to cascade down my mentions, and I knew that whatever happened wasn’t good for Paul Pierce.

I’ll share the video for your viewing pleasure, as we move to Game Seven on Friday night. Can the Sixers win? Leave a comment and let us know what you think while you peruse your pertinent reading material for Thursday.
