It appears as if we have another Fartgate to deal with.

You may recall last season there was a notorious farter on the San Francisco Giants bench and judging by what happened during Wednesday’s Brooklyn Nets game, we may have found another.

In the below GIF, you can see Shaun Livingston, Joe Johnson and Paul Pierce all covering their noses (though Johnson isn’t very good at it) as something funky is crossing through the air.

Who done it? We don’t really have an answer, though Paul Pierce certainly seemed to get some enjoyment out of the stench.

I’m certainly not going to be the one laughing if a wicked stench comes rolling my way, so right there Pierce is already placing himself in contention to be the fart bandit.

Judging by the reactions of Johnson and Livingston, they don’t appear to be overly amused, so I think it’s safe to rule them out.

It’s also not likely the fart dust would be able to travel the distance of four players, so one would have to assume it’s within the same region that all three are sitting in.

I think we’ve found our culprit, eh Paul Pierce?
