It’s reported that Pierce was served at his residence in Woodland Hills, California on November 4 and has refused to surrender the vehicle despite demands from Chase. The lawsuit is seeking an order to have the former player hand the car over immediately.

Pierce has found himself in some other financial messes as of late. He agreed to a settlement with the SEC that should see him pay $1.4 million after unlawfully promoting crypto securities while withholding the amount he received to be part of the promotion.

Another lawsuit from last year outlines a poker debt of $180,000 plus interest.

This all comes in the wake of Pierce’s firing from ESPN over a video that he posted of himself having a good time with adult entertainers in 2021.

The 46-year-old amassed millions over the course of a 19-year NBA career during which he helped the Celtics win a championship. He is considered to be one of the greatest Boston players of the modern era.
