Last night former Celtics forward Paul Pierce drew the ire of NBA Twitter after he proclaimed that he was a better player than Dwyane Wade during a segment on ESPN’s NBA pre-game show .

Michelle Beadle
: Who is the better player you or Dwyane Wade?

Paul Pierce: That’s easy, that’s me. If you give me Shaq, if you give LeBron. If you give me these guys early in my career. You give me these guys at 24-25 and I would be sitting here with five or six championships easy.

Wade found the whole thing amusing and fired back on Twitter with a few funny tweets of his own.

Even D-Wade’s son Zaire mocked Pierce on Instagram.

Wade;s wife, Gabrielle Union, wasn’t too thrilled about Pierce trying to compare himself to Wade just to make himself look better on TV.

Players debating their place in history has always been a tradition among great players, so I don’t see this debate between Pierce and EWade as a big deal.
