Former Boston Celtics All-Star Paul Pierce said during ESPN’s NBA Countdown on Tuesday that LeBron James is not among his top-five NBA players of all time:
Mike Miller, who won back-to-back championships with James on the Miami Heat in 2012 and ’13, mocked Pierce for his reasoning Thursday:
“When I go back, and I talk about these players and the top-five players who not only built up organizations or helped continue organizations’ tradition, a la [the late] Kobe [Bryant], I go back and I ask myself, ‘What has LeBron did to build up any organization from the ground up?'” Pierce said.
