Paul Pierce Sports Teams Visiting POTUS? … Stupid Tradition.

Paul Pierce is glad Villanova is refusing to visit Trump‘s White House to celebrate their NCAA basketball title … saying the tradition is dumb and overrated. 

Nova’s coach Jay Wright, announced Thursday the team would not visit 1600 Pennsylvania this year — as NCAA winning teams have traditionally done for years. 

In fact, Villanova visited Obama‘s White House after winning the title 2016 — but Wright explained, “Two years ago it was the experience of a lifetime for all of us. It’s just a different time.”

Fast forward to Thursday night outside Mastro’s Steakhouse in Bev Hills — where we asked Pierce (who visited George W. Bush‘s White House with the Celtics in ’08) if Nova was making a mistake. 

“I think that’s overrated,” Pierce explained … “Why you gotta visit the White House? You got your trophy, you won your championship.”

Paul tells us it’s a digital time — so a simple congratulatory tweet should more than do the job.

Then, he started questioning why the tradition even started in the first place — strongly implying the tradition is just dumb and unnecessary. 

“I don’t know why we go to the White House,” Pierce said … “Why did people even start going there?” 

BTW … when Pierce went to the White House a decade ago — he called it “truly an honor” and even brought gifts for No. 43.
