Paul Pierce Tweet Sparks 'Studio Gangster' Response From Udonis Haslem

By now, you've likely seen Paul Pierce's tweet following Thursday night's win over Miami -- "It's been a pleasure to bring my talents to south beach now on to Memphis" -- and while that is certainly awesome and one of the better athlete tweets ever, some on the Heat were (expectedly) not too pleased. Including Udonis Haslem, who fired back on Friday.

"Paul who? Man, ain't nobody paying them dudes no attention, man. You know what studio gangster is? Look up that, look up the definition of studio gangster. I'm here to play basketball. First of all, I don't tweet. So I wouldn't know what he tweeted if you guys didn't tell me."

For our less-than-hip readers, a "studio gangster" is "somebody who raps about ganglife style in hiphop" and can also refer to "being a wannabe gangster."

Hopefully Haslem sees the irony in calling the Celtics "studio gangsters," when the Heat, a team expected to compete for the best NBA record ever, is now just 5-4 and currently a five seed in the Eastern Conference.

But hey, they're "the best 5-4 team in the league." So, there's that.
