In addition to breaking the report of Rajon Rondo’s torn ACL injury to the audience, Doris Burke also played the bearer of bad news with Paul Pierce after the Celtics’ 100-98 victory over the Miami Heat.
After such a thrilling win, you can see Pierce’s mood switch from joy to despair over the loss of friend for the rest of the season.
Should Doris have been the one to tell Pierce about the bad news?
This is truly sad to see as the young man was having an amazing season and is one of the most dynamic point guards in the game today. With an injury such as this he will be sidelined for about 8-10 months.
