Pierce Is DrivingBoston Celtics swingman Paul Pierce has been selected as the cover athlete for Microsoft Game Studios upcoming NBA Inside Drive 2003 according to a press release posted today. In a surprising twist, not one human being was quoted in regards to the announcement. Apparently all Microsoft representatives and Pierce himself were all plenty busy to offer their thoughts on Paul Pierces latest role as videogame coverboy. Pierce replaces Toronto swingman Vince Carter as the face and personality of NBA Inside Drive, which should at least mean P Double will be getting a higher overall rating than good old Vinsanity in this years game. NBA Inside Drive 2003 will land on the Xbox later this fall to coincide with the start of the NBAs regular season. Once again, if youre just joining us, Paul Pierce is the cover athlete for NBA Inside Drive 2003.
