Paul Pierce is having a busy offseason. Two weeks ago, the longtime Boston Celtic great was traded to the Brooklyn Nets as part of a blockbuster draft day trade including teammate Kevin Garnett. On top of that, the man known as "The Truth" competed in a $10,000 Pot-Limit Omaha event at the 2013 World Series of Poker in Las Vegas. Pierce was one of 386 participants in the event, which included the likes of poker stars Phil Hellmuth and Daniel Negreanu. The $10K PLO event is the 61st and final event prior to the WSOP Main Event, the most coveted event in poker.
