Paul Pierce and his headband are in town for Games 3 and 4 of the second round of the NBA Playoffs. And what does an aging star do in the City of Brotherly Love on his off night?

Plays $10-$10 no-limit Texas Hold 'Em at the Parx Casino, of course.

The glamorous life of an aging (and soon to be eliminated?) NBA player.

Fist pound to Dan Gross for the find

    His poker game must be good if he can bluff his hands the way he bluffs injuries on the hardwood

    Paul Pierce is too much of a whiny player for me.

    Are they even sure it’s Pierce?
    I don’t think it really looks like him, plus they weren’t even in Philadelphia yet, it’s not him.
    All black guys wear hoods like this guy, this does not look like him at all.

    @Arthur, the picture up top is from a WSOP event he played. Read the caption underneath it says it wasn’t from when he was spotted at PARX.

    He was at Parx again last night and a dealer told me he does not tip when he wins a pot. So wrong!
