Paul Pierce shares a private plane and fresh fruit with Al Pacino

Just about any dorm, apartment, and eventually basement and (*shudders*) man cave of any professional athlete of the last 20 years has featured a ‘Scarface’ poster. It’s a little weird: Brian DePalma’s 1983 remake of the 1932 classic seemed a little too bloated and long-winded for its own sake upon release, but in the years following the Al Pacino-led vehicle has taken on...
