Lamar Jackson After Fans Side-Eye His Locker Room Return to Beat Browns: ‘I Didn’t Pull a Paul Pierce’ (Video)

*Lamar Jackson took a shot at Paul Pierce during his postgame presser Monday night after missing most of the fourth quarter of the wild Ravens-Browns game due to what he said was “cramps.”

But with a few minutes left in the game, he made a dramatic return from the locker room, entered the game on a fourth down and immediately threw a touchdown pass to put the Ravens ahead. Later, after the Browns tied the game, he drove the Ravens down the field in the final minute to set up the game winning 55-yard FG by Justin Tucker.

After the game, Jackson spoke about his injury and said he “didn’t pull a Paul Pierce,” (see video above) referencing this time that Pierce had to be carried off the court in Game 1 of the 2008 NBA finals, only to make a “miraculous” comeback to lead the Celtics to a victory over the Lakers.

Memes began flying online after the game, with folks putting Jackson’s head on Pierce’s wheelchaired body.
