Default Re: When its all said and done Paul Pierce...

Paul Pierce is the man and one of my fav players all time. Yes there is a separation from him compared to Kobe/LeBron. However, i think it also shows how good he has been in his ability to competed over the years with the 2 elite wings of his era. The main difference between Pierce and Bron/Kobe imo is he was never the explosive type of scorer but was consistent. You knew every night in his prime he was gonna give you 23-26/6/4. just to show what type of consistency he had i remember a few years prior to the big 3 where he never was the only player to not score under 15 points that season.

Ballsy statement and I applaud your gumption.

Alas, it is not to be and I say that as a fan of his since his Kansas days with Raef Lafrentz.

I'm proud to say that he's a Top 20 scorer all-time who wore a Celtics uni the whole way through

Well said!

Paul Pierce is greater than Kobe.
But Lebron is better than him.

He's made the ASG 10 times and won a ring. Will be in the Hall of Fame. It's been an awesome career regardless.

Love his game. High IQ and still capable of having huge games, but he doesn't have the resume of Kobe and Lebron and was never on their level of impact.

Still love watching him hit those pull up threes.

No doubt he's a hall of famer.

Exactly. Player rankings are kind of silly anyway, but the differences we are talking about are marginal at this level. You could probably reorder all of the players between 60 and 30 in any combination and still have a pretty reliable all-time list.
