Fans are pointing to new video that shows Pierce may be to blame for the Celtics demise.
LeBron James is always going to be LeBron James. He doesn't need trash talk in order to take a game over.
That being said, one fan pointed out that Paul Pierce may have heckled James, leading to the Game 7 comeback and an Eastern Conference Championship for the Cavaliers. The video is quickly going viral as some Celtics fans are looking for a reason or someone to blame.
