Lamar on his second-half cramps: 'I ain't pull no Paul Pierce'


Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson confirmed postgame that he was forced to leave the game with cramps, not for anything else. 

"I was cramping," Jackson told media. "I ain't pull no Paul Pierce." 

Pierce infamously was forced to leave Game 1 of the 2008 NBA Finals between the Celtics and Lakers in some discomfort, as his teammates carried him into a wheelchair in the team tunnel. He since confessed before shortly retracting said confession that the incident was indeed for him having to go to the bathroom. It became one of the all-time great sports memes.  

Jackson, on the other hand, confirmed that everyone's initial thoughts were misguided.
