Pierce was able to play all 82 games during the 2000-01 season despite a life-threatening incident that occurred a month before the season. The Truth was trying to break up a fight between members of Benzino's Made Men crew at Boston's Buzz Club. Bad move. Pierce ended up with 11 stab wounds to the back, face, and neck for his trouble, and had to undergo lung surgery. But according to Benzino, "it's all love" between the two now.
