HoopsHype Jay Pharoah rumors


June 6, 2012 Updates

Jay Pharoah, for one, thinks Pierce is "an actress" and "a diva," two titles that athletes don't typically like being labeled with. The comedian made his views on Pierce clear before Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Finals during an apppearance on ESPN's First Take. Pharoah, a cast member on NBC's Saturday Night Live, is known largely for his impressions. His recent spot-on impression of ESPN's Stephen A. Smith is what has gotten sports fans' attention lately. However, it's Pharoah's criticism that got Pierce's attention after the Celtics defeated the Heat in Miami to take a 3-2 series lead. NESN.com
