Paul Pierce Tebows after dropping 36 points on the Hawks, reminds us that Tebowing is awful (VIDEO)

Ball Don't Lie

Earlier on Tuesday, Dan Devine smartly pointed out that Boston Celtics legend Paul Pierce was "going have to play at his absolute highest level for the Boston Celtics to avoid a two-game hole," in Tuesday night's Celtics/Atlanta Hawks Game 2, and that "Pierce has to be elite just to make Boston's offense run on time." Well, 36 points and 14 rebounds later, it appears as if Dan was on to something. Pierce was a killer throughout in Boston's Game 2 win, and he decided to celebrate the Boston victory and his own hot touch by … Tebowing?

Seriously, Paul? This is still a thing, to you? This was ever a thing?

We appreciate Pierce's fantastic performance, because the Celtics needed every pull-up bit of it with Rajon Rondo out and Ray Allen out with an ankle injury, but there were so many other cooler things Pierce could have done towards the end of his team's win than, ugh, Tebowing. A list of some of those far, far cooler things follow after the jump.

Things Paul Pierce Could Have Done That Would Have Been Cooler Than Tebowing

*A Borat impression, while in a Guy Fawkes mask.

*Changing your name, apparently ironically.

*Assuming Lamar Odom could put you over the top.

*Tolerating Zooey Deschanel.

*Thinking that signing up for Sulia was a good idea.

*Initiating a months-long work stoppage that costs thousands of families necessary income just to secure continued profits for your 30-strong constituency, or putting off making significant ground during the negotiations, allegedly, to extend paychecks for yourself and your family members.

*Utilizing Jeremy Lin puns.

*Settin' up a flash mob.

*Playing with a Tomagotchi.

*Participating in "Untitled Danny Masterson Project."

*Pinochle.

*Occupying things.

*Breckin Meyering.

*Rally squirreling.

*Dougie'ing. I guess. Not sure. We still never figured out what that was.

*Assuming the identity of an attractive female message board dweller in order to dupe poor saps named either "Matt" or "Lynn Hoppes" into giving you money.

*BELIEVING THAT KARYN MEANT ANYTHING SHE EVER SAID BUT IT'S OK, BECAUSE WE'RE MOVING ON KARYN.

*Assuming that a Paul Lieberstein-led revival with the talents of James Spader at the front of the ship would help everyone forget Steve Carrell had moved on.

*Chanting "M-V-P" when your team's best player is at the free-throw line.

*Not planking. It's still better than planking. Everything always will be.
