Why Stephen A. Smith Disagrees With Jalen Rose Calling Paul Pierce 'Petty'

But after Rose roasted Pierce on live TV, Thomas liked a video on Instagram of the video, as did his wife, too.

The NBA's latest weird conflict heated up when Pierce told ESPN.com's Jackie MacMullan and Chris Forsberg that he asked Celtics president Danny Ainge to keep February 11's game against the Cleveland Cavaliers focused on his ceremony.

The Celtics had planned to honor Thomas' three years in Boston with a video tribute on Feb 11.

On Wednesday, ESPN's Jalen Rose called his colleague, Paul Pierce, petty for not wanting to share his jersey retirement night with an Isaiah Thomas tribute video in Boston. Next, I've got to say a word for you.

"All types, including celebrating Isaiah Thomas could be one of them".

Pierce previously told ESPN he thought Thomas had his shot to be honored earlier this month but blew it.

Pierce admitted to acting in a petty matter, per Dime on Uproxx, but only to set up a forced joke about Kobe Bryant scoring 81 points on Rose's Toronto Raptors in 2006.

Earlier in the day, before Thomas' tweet, Pierce explained why he objected to plans to honor Thomas on February 11. Whether you are playing or not, you should have had your tribute then.

"Can I tell you something about your birthday?" He pretty much dictated everything.' They let it happen because they felt sorry how (the trade to Cleveland) went down.
