Paul Pierce and LeBron James' beef started with spitting and escalated to family drama

17-Yan, 2021

Do you ever find yourself in a situation where you thought you’d put all the past relationship drama behind you, but for whatever reason you find the other person still clinging onto the history you had together? And does this drama come out publicly whenever you turn on the TV? No? Well, LeBron James does.
Despite having not suited up in the NBA for over three years now, in his new role as an ESPN analyst, Paul Pierce finds a way to trash LeBron James at any given opportunity. Envy leads you to say some absurd things - whether it’s saying that LeBron isn’t a top five player in NBA history, how it was him alone who made LeBron go to the Miami Heat in free agency, or just the thought that if the two were the same age he would have stopped LeBron from earning his NBA titles.
While Paul Pierce continues to hate, LeBron just keeps his head down and hoops. This is a situation that goes way beyond Pierce trolling on TV. It spans multiple teams, family members, and even a preseason spitting incident. This beef really has some history to it.

    • pierce is the only one who thinks is better or above lebron...he is the only one who believes is is the only rival lebron have / had ... pierce believe there was a beef with him and lebron where in fact ... lebron doesn't really give an ass rat about him ... pierce is a one time mvp and champion who is washed up and really could and would never make it into top 50 greats of all time ... he is just opening his mouth to stay relevant ... people forgot him already ... nobody buys his jerseys ... heck 10 years from now nobody will probably even wear his jersey ... so pierce ya hear me boy !!! wake up ... you are way below the king ... know your place ... you had a short burst of goodness in you at some point in your stupid career ... your a one time wonder pooping boy a champion and an MVP ... and that is about it ... sorry to say this but the TURTH HURTS boy !!! accept that you are washed up star that could never reach the king ...

Paul now and days gives bron credit calls him the best in the league but when’s he’s playing why would we expect that? I wish more star players would go at each other and make games interesting, just leave it on the court though!

  • The You-tubers Sneek dissing PP is showing he worships the king. Saying PP is no Zeek is a reach. In my opinion PP is a top 25 player of all time that rode it out wit Boston the big 3 deserved to come together with KG being loyal to Minnesota like PP was to Celtic. Add Ray who was traded 2 times (Not by choice ) He was best player on team both times. Bron going to MIA was cool. But he proved to be a ring chaser the min he left & went back contradicting why he left in 1st place! After killing Cavs cap and trading all its assets and draft picks depleting there franchise he goes to LA misses playoffs then trades there entire Franchise except 2nd rd pick Kuz 😂 for a top 5 player then wins a ring. I say, my fellow country men & women... This is your King???🤔💯😂😂

  • Paul Pierce is right, LeBron isn't a Top 5 player of all time. He is just marketed like that by the NBA. I have Durant, Kahwi, Antetokounmpo ahead of LeBron right now. I can't put LeBron in the discussion with Jordan, Magic, Kareem, Wilt, Duncan , Kobe , Bird , Dr J , Russell . I have a hard time putting James above guys like Vince Carter , Shawn Kemp, Scottie Pippen or Larry Johnson in their prime.

  • pierce is an amazing player back in the day, in his prime he was really one tough cookie...but he is nothing compared to every aspect pierce aint nothing compared to lebron and that the truth...period... pierce without rondo, ray and kg vs. lebron + his original cavs team mates = pierce boston will eat dust...that is a no brainer...james can sweep pierce boston easily without kg, rondo and ray allen ... lebron did what he needed to do in that situation with his mom on the sidelines...we all know that lebron love her mom so much...still, pierce is probably a hall of famer but is not even close to any conversation of greats or goats...lebron, kobe, bill russell, kareem, wilt, jordan, bird, magic, shaq ... nope i can't just see pierce cracking up the list...a one time mvp i think and a bonified legit all star and a superstar at some point in his career...but again...his not even close toe to toe with lebron and lebrons accomplishment... lebron in his younger days is just a raw beast with athleticism but current lebron is a more fined and tuned player that he can discard his athleticism because and doesn't need to rely on his brute strength anymore as he uses his basketball IQ better now, instead of making himself stand out he now makes his team mates better with his passing and play making ability and has learned how to hurt opposing teams from the outside compared in his younger days where he heavily rely on just his strength, speed and undeveloped basketball IQ... lebron is like wine that he gets better as he gets older while pierce just faded and never made an impact after his prime days...

  • In 2007 when the Cavs go to the Finals it's "Lebron carried his trash team to the Finals." But when they can't win the title it's "Cleveland's front office can't get it done for Lebron. So of course he would he leave for Miami." Ridiculous. Bronexuals give Lebron all the credit and none of the criticism. When Bron loses it's always someone else's fault. When Bron wins he gets all the credit. Lame AF. Btw the goat doesn't shoot 34% in a playoff series or get owned in the Finals by a role player. Jason Terry plz stand up 🤣

Pierce's game winner over Al Harrington after calling his shot was one of the most amazing playoff moments of that era.
