Someone voted for Paul Pierce in the Polish presidential election

Monday May 11th, 2015

Paul Pierce is having a heck of a run in the NBA playoffs this season, backing up the epic amount of trash he has been talking since the postseason began.

It appears all that scoring and talking has earned him a fan overseas, as a Polish Wizards fan wrote the veteran's name in on his ballot for the Polish presidential election.

Pierce's Polish teammate, Marcin Gortat, caught wind of the write-in vote and retweeted a picture of the ballot.

Unfortunately, the rest of Poland was not quite as taken with the man they call "The Truth," and Pierce will not be heading to Warsaw to take control of the country's executive branch anytime soon.
