Paul Pierce trolls Raptors after sweeping them in first round

Monday April 27th, 2015

You think Paul Pierce was happy the Wizards swept the Raptors in the first round of the playoffs?

Washington earned its first four-game sweep in franchise history with a 125–94 win on Sunday night and Pierce celebrated by posting a few memes on social media.

First, he usurped the iron throne from the HBO hit Game of Thrones, proclaiming himself King in the North.

Then, Pierce took aim at Toronto's No. 1 fan (and notorious bandwagoner) Drake.

Pierce made his distaste for Toronto clear right from the outset. 

"We haven't done particularly well against Toronto, but I don't feel they have the 'It' that makes you worried,'' Pierce told ESPN's Jackie MacMullan before the series started. "There isn't a team I look at in the Eastern Conference that makes me say, 'They are intimidating, we don't have a chance.'"

After the Wizards jumped out to a 2-0 series lead, Pierce said wanted to close the series out at home. "I don't want to go through customs no more," he proclaimed.
