Who else? Well, Paul Pierce seems to think Paul Pierce is a top-15 player. Or at least he or his social media manager thought enough of Norof’s argument—wouldn’t you if you were named or employed by Paul Pierce?—that it appeared on the wall of Pierce’s Facebook page.
As of this morning more than 1,000 people had “liked” the post and 75 had commented, almost all of them agreeing with the premise. The rest just want the NBA to get back on the floor, something we can all agree upon.
Pierce’s endorsement boosted the traffic on the piece significantly. Athletes on social media can do that. Are you keeping that in mind as you get the word out about the pieces you’ve written?
