Paul Pierce Gets Mocked By NBA Fans After Saying LeBron James Doesn’t Deserve To Be In GOAT Conversation If Lakers Don’t Win NBA Championship


Former Boston Celtics forward Paul Pierce really doesn’t think much of LeBron James.

Earlier this year Pierce went on a rant in which he said that he doesn’t believe that LeBron is a top 5 player of all-time.

“Bill Russell built up the organization in Boston. He should get way more credit than we give him, and a lot of times he gets left out of the conversation,” Pierce said. “So in saying that, Kareem, Magic , Jordan, Tim Duncan, Kobe, Bird. These guys are all-time top 10 players who either helped build up their organization or continued the tradition.”

Pierce hasn’t seen LeBron do the same.

“He went and put together a team in Miami, and in some ways, he came back to Cleveland to put that team togeter, and then he went to the Lakers, where a tradition has already been made,” Pierce said. “And we don’t know, you know, that’s still to be continued. So in saying that, that’s my argument.”

After the Lakers lost to the Blazers in game 1 of their playoff series on Tuesday night, Pierce doubled down on his LeBron take during an appearance on First Take.

According to Pierce, if the Lakers don’t win a championship this year LeBron should never be mentioned in the GOAT conversation ever again.

NBA fans immediately mocked Paul Pierce after his latest LeBron hot take.
