Paul Pierce: “I don’t think Kobe is the best player. I’m the best player.”

Paul Peirce is drawing his own line… and Kobe and the Lakers will put him in hoops-6-feet-under come next season. Here is the conceited confident quote…

Marca.com: I don’t think Kobe is the best player. I’m the best player. There’s a line that separates having confidence and being conceited. I don’t cross that line but I have a lot of confidence in myself.

    LOL.

    What.. like 20 games vs. 82 games? Okay.. maybe Finals best player sure. That’s about it.

    Pierce wasn’t even considered to be the next Jordan, Kobe was.. but he doesn’t want to be compared to him.

    And wow, Pierce has 2 freakin all-stars on his team, so how can he say that he’s the best when he has a crazy supporting team?

    you give Kobe Garnett and then see who dominates the nba finals. without garnett pierce doesnt shine like that. garnett takes so much pressure off pierce. gasol and odom dont take that kind of presure away. enuff said.

  • Michael_23

    Wtf? I thought these 2 were good buddies? Looks like another player like Shaq jealous of Kobe. Kobe has better things to do right now. Win gold for himself and USA. Pierce is just some lazy foo just not doing anything.

    He didn’t join team USA because there’s no spot for him. Melo, Lebron, even Prince are people USA considers the best SFs the team can have. Pierce was in an unsuccessful USA team in 02 that I think lost a game a two.

    Celts are not gonna win anymore titles. I can guarantee you that. Their role players are either gonna retire or lose their interests in the game because they won it already.

  • Lakers Fan 4 Life

    This HAS to be taken out of context. First of all, Pierce and Kobe are friends outside of the NBA. Second, Pierce can’t be stupid enough to make this comment. Third, he knows that he’s not even the best player on the Celtics (i.e. Garnett is their leader, Pierce was only top dog of the finals).

    That said, if this isn’t taken out of context, the NBA needs to drug test Pierce because he is smoking some high class Mary Jane.

    Pierce never deserved finals MVP. They compared him to Carmelo during an interview and they asked what the difference between him and Carmelo is and he said “I don’t have a DUI”….f&ck this foo…we will piisss on the Celtics necks come next season

    Amazing that he wasn’t saying this when he went 24-58 last year. What a joke. It’s a shame this jackass is from LA.

  • JV

    That is a total joke, paul pierce is way to slow to even match up against kobe, not to mention shooting with a hand in the face! Paul Pierce hasn’t done shit without the team he has now and he is even in the eastern conference. He had Al Jefferson in the middle for a year and couldn’t do anything. This man is a joke and he is playing off this new found fame because of Kevin Garnet. If anyone was to be mentioned in the same sentence it would be KG WAY BEFORE THAT LOSER PAUL PIERCE. How many 81 point games does that wanna-be have? YEAH I THOUGHT SO!!!!!!!!

    Take a seat Paul Pierce, next he will say he will say he was the best Celtic to ever play the game!

    dear mr. pierce…win a couple more championships…show up to the finals a couple more times…win MVP…score 81pts in one game…grow some damn facial hair…then maybe u can say something…till then SHUT THE FU*K UP!!!

  • kakai

    kobe is the best player and i personally believe hes gonna go down bigger than jordan in the history books…. but you cant blame pierce for saying that… he wasnt dissin kobe he was simply praising himself

  • Diehardfan

    So if he is the best player why did it take two other All-Stars to finally win a title? The same can be said about the other two losers. If they are so great why didn’t the Sonics or the Wolves ever made it to the finals? Like I have said before, never has such a huge group of losers became winners. So Pierce, Garnett and Allen were losers before and they had to come together to win a title. There is no way that neither one of them could of lead this Lakers team to the Finals the way that Kobe did.

  • Edward

    Don’t get too excited guys, this is probably taken out of context. Don’t go assuming things. I don’t like Peirce at all, but ti doesn’t seem like him to say this. I think what he’s saying is he doesn’t limit himself to what he can do, he just keeps on getting better and has confidence in himself. BTW Kobe did have help when he got his rings, and we lost when we had the most help… the Malone and Payton year. So don’t bring that into the discussion. BUT if pierce was being serious… he is really really stupid. Lebron is easily better than him too.

  • e-bucher

    if that’s the case…where has he been the last 10 years before last season…as the only star in the team…he wasn’t able to lead his team to the playoffs in the weak east…so much hype he is trying to build up…put your money where your mouth is…we’ll see you next season…

  • rjpnoi408

    Peirce suck. He’s was’nt even MVP candidate. I think he said that cause beat kobe in one final game…But hey Peiceshit, you were playing against injured kobe that time. Just wait til next season. You’ll get your lesson and regret you said that stupid crap of yours……

    Paul Piece you ain’t shit, you are so ain’t better than Kobe
    I don’t even want to compare him to you.Just because you won
    that championship don’t got to start acting all that you know why because you are not going to any more championships.Can you score 81 points a game or higher, I
    don’t think so.Can win an actual MYP not the Finals one, I
    don,t think so,can win any more championships, I don’t think
    so.Paul you are just a fatass lazy bum sitting in a wheelchair.So you are nothing compared to Kobe.You got that.

  • LakersFirst

    Hmmm…until Pierce starts getting MVP chants in other NBA cities (ya know on the home court of other teams), he should be quiet.

    I think the Boston Suckdic fans remember chanting MVP, MVP, MVP for Kobe in Boston.

  • xtro

    that fool only won the nba finals cuz he got kg and ray-ray. as faras i am concerned, james posey won the finals for that team. ’nuff aid!

  • killo15

    wow what a cocky piece of sh1t. he can never be as good let alone better than kobe. he has one f’uckin championship, which he won with two allstars that have only one championship. kobe has f’uckin 3, an mvp, will get a gold medal, scoring titles…i dont need to say anymore. i hope someone breaks his kneecaps with a baseball bat.

  • Brynumdomsolfish

    I thought Josh Howard was the only idiot to say straight up that he smokes during the off season. Now pierce with this comment has made it clearer than josh howard that he’s on something. What’s wrong with these morons?!

  • Thomas

    REALLY? Last time l looked it was the addition if KG and Ray Allen that got them (the Celtics) a title, not Paul Pierce. Also, despite the fact that he thinks that he’s the best, Kobe will kick his a$$ in the regular season. And if the Lakers me the Celtics in the Finals, it’s over…He thinks that he’s the best because he won the MVP of the Finals but that only means that he is the best player on the Championship team. ,not the best player un the league. That title belongs to Kobe Bryant…Shut up and go away

    is this dudeserious…this dude finally got a ring he had to go get two allstars to get it now he think he better then kobe……kobe droped what 42 or 46 on em in boston last year and had the crowd screamin mvp on his court.what is he talkin bout.I cant wait till the play next season

  • daboss1848

    An NBA player has no business on the floor if they think that the guy they play against is better than them – that goes in any profession.

    Barkley was a perfect example of this – he always said he was the best even when confronted with MJ and Magic. His response was that if he thought they were better what was the point in even suiting up to play against them?

  • mr.laker19

    I am offended, totaly. How dare him challenge the best player to ever touch basketball, its rediculous! Im ready to fight! We have to play those funky leprechauns again next year in the finals. He really needs to you tube Kobe or something because if he doesnt know by now he is on crack. Even Lebron who I consider the second best player right now always gives his respect to Kobe, even Shaq’s cock eyed azz gives it up to Kobe. Pierce… DIE!!!!!!

  • jattlakers

    WOW!!!!!! First of all, He pierce is being conceited for saying that. Where was he in the playoffs before they got ray allen and KG? He can’t take any team to the finals without a help of a few allstars. And about kobe…two things come to mind 3 rings and 81. All he need was one other allstar to win a championship…make that 3 championships. Im sorry but hands down kobe is definitely the best player of his era.

  • Jonathan

    fuck paul pierce anyone could win a championshit with KG and Allen on their team. kobe already has 3 titles and how many does pierce have????? thats why they sucked the 06-07 year without KG and Allen

  • Jonathan

    paul pierce is wack anyone could win a champion with KG and Allen on their team. kobe already has 3 titles and how many does pierce have????? only 1 thats why they sucked the 06-07 season without KG and Allen. and kobe’sgunna gave his fourth ring once bynum comes back

    doesn’t have kobe’s athleticism even though kb’s slowing down a little..doesn’t have his txtbook jump shot..he might have some killer instinct but it doesn’t come close to matching kb’s.

    I JUST WHAT TO SAY, I HOPE THIS IS AN EYE OPENER FOR KOBE AND THE LAKER ORGANIZATION AS WELL…EVERY GOOD PLAYER ENVY KOBE…EVERY TEAM ENVY THE LAKERS…THE LAKERS AND KOBE SHOULD BE DOING EVERYTHING TO CEMENT THEIR CLAIM AS THE GREATEST PLAYER AND THE GREATEST TEAM IN THE NBA TODAY…WE NEED CHAMPIONSHIPS!!!…NO ELSE WILL SHUT UP THE CRITICS…PAUL CAN OUT OF THE CLOSET BECAUSE HE WON ONE, MANY OTHER PLAYER FEEL THE SAME WAY. THERE ARE A LOT OF KOBE HATERS, AS WELL AS LAKER HATERS.I HOPE THIS MESSAGE FROM PAUL GETS TO KOBE, DR BUSS, PHIL AND THE LAKER ORGANIZATION TO SERVE NOTICE THAT THE LAKER NATION IS THE ONE TEAM, THAT ALL TEAMS IN THE NBA LOVE TO HATE…THUS THE LAKERS SHOULD BE DOING EVERYTHING TO GET BACK TO WINNING MULTIPLE CHAMPIONSHIPS.

    So you were cheering for a Laker on your Boston homecourt! HA, I knew it, you’re a fairweathed Boston Suckdic fan that probably talked sh*t about the Suckdics when they were title-less for the past 20 years. How pathetic.

    Now I know you’re not a real Boston Suckdic fan because not even Red Auderbach (that crazy old man) would cheer a Laker during a Boston/Laker game, much less cheer for a Laker on the Boston Suckdic home court. You’re a pathetic fan.

    Sh*t for brains, if a player does not want to be wearing the Laker forum blue and gold, then I don’t want him on the team. F*ck yea I’ll boo him if he doesn’t want to be on the Lakers, the greatest and most recognized basketball franchise in the world. Unlike you Boston f*ggot, I support the TEAM, not individual players. I’m not a fair-weathered Boston Suckdic fan, where they abandoned their team and don’t support them during losing seasons.

    Just go back to doing what all Boston fans do and suck each other off. You’re on this site because there are no active Boston Suckdic forums because your fans are all fairweathered and only support a team when they win (you, me and everyone else here knows it). Boston fans are the biggest f*ggot fans in all of sports, thats why when one dared to wear a Boston jersey at a Laker event, he got his a** beat.

  • http://getgasol.com getgasol

    This is about the stupidest thing I’ve ever heard.

    1. Kobe Bryant is the best all-around player in basketball. I say this not as a Laker fan, but an educated follower of basket ball. And most basketball fans are all in agreement that Kobe Bryant is currently the game’s best player.

    2. Even if Kobe Bryant wasn’t #1, it wouldn’t be Paul Pierce. It would be Lebron or a handful of others.

    3. Paul Pierce is not basketball’s best player. Nor is he #2, 3, 4, or 5. He is MAYBE top 10, but even that is debatable.

    Paul, get off your high horse. The only reason you won a championship is because you got hooked up with KG and Ray Allen. Before them, your stupid ass couldn’t even make the playoffs in the EAST, which Kobe could do every year on any team if he was in the east.

    Not opinions. FACTS.

  • kobe4ever

    man…what’s up with the racial comments? I mean yeah mexican workers do work that many of us just would not do but have you seen that movie the “mexican”? basically it shows how American society is depended on illegal mexican immigrants to do the less dignified work in our country. pretty much showed that without mexican people, who would take out our trash? or clean our bathrooms? or better yet, work our McDonald’s? Mexican’s are hardworking people, just because of the kind of work they do doesn’t mean you should attack them for it. They work hard and make a living, plus when I was dorming it at UCSD the housekeeping maid Juanita used to hook us up with free stuff and was real cool to all of the students. anyways mexicans are cool, even illegal mexicans but i do wish they’d get insurance, i’m tired of handling cases at work that deals with uninsured mexican illegals.

  • Catherine Hernandez

    Kobe Bryant is a phenominal,professional athlete just as Paul Pierce is. I watched BOTH athletes play on the court with everything they have..along with their team mates.Paul Pierce didn’t win the championship single handed.The awesome Lakers made the Celtics WORK for that championship where as Kobe was just PLAYING the game and doing what he was born to do.
    Pierce should be humble to have such an adversary as Kobe Bryant who is by far a better player not only on the court but in his character.Kobe Bryant is to basketball what Tiger Woods is to golf…an OUTSTANDING professional athlete. Oh yeah,who was voted MVP…KOBE BRYANT.So be nice Paul Pierce..cuz there’s always next time.
    Peace

  • Xscann3r

    First of all , Paul Pierce is way too slow for Kobe and he cant even jump..waaaaa,,, but unfortunately these 2 muthafackers are no match for the speed of CP3 and the leadership of LeBron. So why you celtics and lakers go fuck yourselves for next year the two teams that will be on the finals is the Hornets and CAvs..ayyttt!!!

  • cindy

    What Pierce stated is conceited and shows arrogance. He shouldn’t have called out Kobe Bryant that way. I wonder if he has enough confidence to join the WWF? He would be really good that…hmmm. He only got the MVP because his city felt sorry for his sorry ass. Kobe, better start getting pointers from Hogan so that you can kick Pierce where he deserves it. :D

  • halley

    wow, that’s one heck of a statement. i see that have lit a huge bonfire among lakers fans, or should i say kobe fans. well, he was mvp during the playoffs but that’s about it. he wasn’t that good during the regular season, garnett was. i just hope he hadn’t said anything as stupid as this one. has kobe reacted?

    Pierce’s comment was taken out of context first off and second Kobe only won his championships with the support of other all stars on his team and when the laker’s had an all-star lineup they still weren’t able to win a championship for all the laker fans don’t be soar losers Pierce and Kobe are best friends. Pierce was just messing around but enough with Kobe being the best player in the NBA. True he is a solid all around player but no matter how good you are there will always be someone else better coming along. Ohh yeah the Celts just didn’t beat the laker’s they crushed them. If Kobe was that good maybe he could have done a better job chipping a few extra points when they got blow out by 50 points in the final game. Celts have another 3-4 years of Dominating the NBA so suck it up LA Kobe will be retiring before Celts are no longer dominate after all Boston is the Town of Champions YANKEEES SUCK!!!!

  • fan4life

  • frankie

    pierce… maybe not the best. but at least he doesn’t act like a cry baby and give up when his team is losing. kobe can’t be compared to jordan either, cuz jordan would play his heart out even if they were losing the championship by 50 or however many points; kobe gives up too early when stuff doesn’t go his way, and people say he’s the best player?

  • cp3

    pierce does not have the talent that kobe has this is true, but to compare kobe to mike is ridiculous the dude is a great individual player but he dont have half the leadership mike had, not even half that pierce has when it comes down to it pierce works better with a team kobe needs to learn to motivate his team rather than act like a whiney little bitch and just yell whenever hes mad, you give kobe garnett and allen and he wont work half as good with em as pierce

  • fluek

    piecre NOR kobe is best in NBA. Well, Kobe is best at raping women and using his power to get the best lawyer in town. They aren’t even on the best team in the NBA. Boston–more titles than any other team, and most consecutive titles, only eight (8) in a row!

    all of you Lakers fans on here getting worked up about this are seriously pathetic!

    Reality check: Paul Pierce just got done SCHOOLING Kobe… let me repeat… SCHOOLING KOBE! he embarrassed Kobe from start to finish in that series, and incidentally, also outplayed Lebron…

    Reality check: the best player in the world is NOT the guy the media keeps telling you is the best… it’s the guy that can prove it on the court!

    PERIOD!

    Until proven otherwise, Pierce IS the best player on the planet… and all of you arguing with this statement are simply not qualified to be involved in a basketball discussion in any respect…

    was Kobe playing in theh Lakers-Celtics series…

    so who is a better basketball player?

    A: Pierce

    seriously gotta wonder how people are struggling with this debate… Kobe is an extremely talented basketball player and a great competitor… but he is also extremely over-hyped by the media… he still has a LONG way to go to ever get into the realm of truly great NBA players… LONG way…

    If he is so good why is he not on the USA BAsketball Team.. He is a sloppy player that gets lucky drawing weak fouls on a weak team that had a good season. I guess after being on a crappy team for 10 years you got to talk smack since thats all you got.I think Ray Allen should of got the Finals MVP because he was constant and Pierce was all acting with his fake knee injury and weak weak fouls. The lakers should of let him shoot as I am sure he would of missed most of them.

  • Scott

    Paul Pierce is starting to get that attitude that “Bawston” fans have gotten lately.

    Anybody want to bet once the Pats suck again, that they wont even draw 20,000 to a game, that once the Celtics suck again, that their fans will be chanting “MVP” to another teams player, that once the Red Sox suck again, that nobody will give a damn about Fenway Park, and it will get knocked down for some new park.

    You want examples?!? Look at the Boston Bruins, nobody gives a damn about them as they have sucked. Give them a few laps with Lord Stanley, and you will hear everyone in Boston “care” about the team with a “fever passion”. Boston can burn down for all I care.

    Really, to be honest, I hate the Lakers, but with the attitude that Boston has gotten lately, I can easily put that aside for anyone (including the Lakers, Yankees, and a few other teams I hate), and hope for a pure asskicking of these “Chowdaheads”

    It’s funny that everyone seems so upset about this. Pierce and Kobe are actually good friends. Pierce probably said it to get Kobe going. I bet Kobe isn’t as upset about this comment as all these Laker fans who have nothing better to do than rag on this year’s world champions. Not to mention, Pierce absolutely has every right to walk around with some confidence. He played for what was the worst team for nine years. He stuck around with a dying team (whether he wanted to or not) and the C’s were able to go from worst to best in only one season. Pierce has been waiting a long time for this and I am sure Kobe understands. Besides, Kobe isn’t exactly the most humble player in the league. Who cares if Pierce thinks he is the best, so does every other all star in the league.

    After reading about what Paul Pierce said in the article, I have realized something about him… His a complete idiot and a dreamer too.

    I can’t believe that he had the guts to say to the world that he’s the best ball player in the world today. (I would have agreed if he said he’s the best Ass Clown. heheh.)

    Yes, he’s the league’s MVP for 2008 but I don’t think he deserves it. He could have not done it without KG or even Ray Ray.

    No offense with this two guys I’ve mentioned… You’re still nothing to Kobe. And I really don’t give a damn if you’re offensed with what I’ve said.

    Just because you win a championship doesn’t mean you get to talk crap. You just can’t let your attitude get better than your talent.

    Um….. Wow! You Laker fans really get vulger hugh?

    I don’t know who’s a “better” player? Kobes’ awesome and Peirce has flown under the radar for his whole career! If you ask any great player “who’s the best”? I’d hope he’d say himself! That’s what makes these guys great players! Kobe thinks he’s the best, no doubt about it! He just doesn’t say so cause he’s a phony balogne!

    Peirce has definitely earned the right to say whatever the hell he wants! He lead the C’s, playing shut down, FINALS MVP defense (on Kobe by the way) all the way to the title on a blown out knee! The guy is definitely in the “same breath” as Kobe! Sh it he might be right, anyone who thinks otherwise is a homer with blinders on! Fact is, the Lakers are a SOFT team and if they don’t make some changes? They won’t even make it to the finals in 2008! 17 Titles Laker fans and that number’s going up!

    Paul Pierce is right on target. The NBA makes Kobe “best player”. No doubt Kobe is a great player, but not the best. Besides, what’s wrong with someone verbalizing what he really feels? Pierce is not built up by fancy plays and swagger, just solid all around hard work. I’ll take him over Kobe any day. He’s the CHAMP.

  • Boston

    I gotta tell you the lakers did play hard and I don’t even like them. Everyone talks about Kobe when it comes to the lakers,when we talk about the celtics we talk about pierce,allen,garnett kind of funny how we talk about more then one player on the celtics team.We fought hard and won by more then 30 points lol.We played great as a team and came out on top. You talk about how pierce sucks but who won in the end? The celtics and they one as a TEAM. We need to stop comparing our players today to those of the past and let great players be just that!!!BOSTON BABY ALL THE WAY!!!!!!!!

    put more fire in the fuel????

    and Kobe is more razzle-dazzle, but he couldn’t do shit against Paul’s defense. I agree that this is dumb for Paul to be running his mouth, but he’s probably right. Kobe couldn’t stop him, and he stopped Kobe. End of story.

  • 17x’s

    Haha Laker fans! These Kobe/Laker fans are just upset because the Celtics are back ON TOP and they can’t run their mouths without us bringing things back into perspective! “The Truth” will set you free!!! 17 times! Is that some kind of record? haha :)

    Peirce = FINALS MVP / NBA CHAMPION

  • solidlakers

    Pierce u might want to watch the link above..Even ur freackin’ coach think that Kobe is the best player in the league. Come to think of it if you’re the best player, then why you’re not even in the dream team for the 2008 Beijing Olympics..Geez!!

  • Licker Nation

    Mann, ya’ll some cry babies yo. He was the MVP for the finals, he has the right to say IT. think about it. He KICKED Kobe’s A$$. Kobe can make him shut up by doing something worth while next season. until then. shut up Licker Nation

  • eshortyz

    Paul pierce brags that he is best player in the nba, what is he some kind of joke> i mean he may be nba season mvp but who won season MVP, KOBee i say this once n i say for the truth, KOBe is best player out there, paul u have nothing to take to be best player in the game.. paul u never stay constient, u always up and down which u have good game and bad game.. if u are the best player in the game then why is heck that u aren”t on the USA basketball team and KOBe IS??? excatlyyy.. u know for a fact that Kobe will beat u one on one no lie… So, quit bragging because u and ur team are overrated..

  • Filipina

    PAUL PIERCE needs to go some where with that comment. You won “ONE” championship, you are barely known and in the spot light now, KOBE has been in the spotlight and labeled one of the best for years and will be forever known that way, you will be known as the cocky, and overly confident person of the NBA!!! trying makin it to more playoffs before you talk out ya neck!. GET IT TOGETHER!!!!!

  • someuserguy

    bitch please..

    nba 2k8 doesn’t even rank you as a top 15 player
    i doubt you’ve started in any allstar game
    you’ve never been 1st team defensive
    you’ve never been first team
    you werent invited to olympics
    you’ve got ONE RING..jesus. might as well say ray allen is second best player since he practically did all the scoring first 3 games
    you’ve got no records…
    you’ve never been top 3 scorer, top 10 assist, top 10 rebounds
    you’re a midlevel freethrow shooter
    you’re slow
    you’ve got an UGLY jumpshot/free throw

    you won ONE CHAMPIONSHIP with the help of the defensive player of the year & former mvp + the best pure shooter in the game today..

    you’re squat. even dwayne wade is at least 5 times better than you, and hes not even the starter in olympics

  • Mark

    Paul Pierce isn’t even the best player on the Celtics, let alone in the world. The nonsense began when analyst starting comparing him with Larry Bird, calling Pierce the greatest offense player in Celtic history. How insulting that was for Bird. Kobe is far and away the best player in the world and the second best player in the history of the game, rapidly ascending on Michael Jordan with a very good possibility of surpassing him by the end of his career. The contentions by Pierce as to his own ranking, if calculated, are somewhat genuis however. They throw him into a discussion where he otherwise has no rightful place. At best, he’s in the bottom half of the top ten players right now, at best….

  • I Hate Kobe…Go C’s

    Wow…Someone acting like an idiot just like Kobe. Even though he matched Kobes performance In the playoffs. While having been (Overweight & Hurt with shot Legs).??..hahahah..Imagine If he didn’t have all that going on to. Kobe may be the best player In the League but he will never win another champioship In L.A. He has always been the Biggest B…. In the league..How does It feel to have someone make a No Class statement about the biggest Class less player In the League. What goes around comes around Kobe..

    By the way Kobe tell me how my A Tastes…..Go Celtics……..

    First off, I find it quite hilarious that this blogger cannot even spell Paul PIErce right in the blog’s URL. Good going, chief.

    Secondly, truth hurts, eh? Paul led his team to a championship, while Kobe sulked, whined, and cursed out his own team. Shaq’s rappin, while atrocious, was factually correct. He will never win another title again, unless the two somehow magically reunite on the same team somewhere. Kobe ain’t nothin without Big Daddy.

  • apewilder

    Bold claims for a person who rode the back of KG to win. Where was the best player last year before the big trades?

  • Yuri Balder

    Why dont you take your “paper champion” Boston Celtic team along with your ugly face, and just go away! The only reason your champions is because we didn’t have Bynum. Next year we will put you in your place and your so called “Im the best player remark”, and teach you a major lesson in humility!

  • airness

    lol….u got to be kidding me. how can a 1 season define reality? Without k.g or ray allen we would not even be hearing these words. Boston record would be 30-52.

  • ManilaCeltic

    Laker Nation..say whatever you want. The fact of the matter is, Celtics are the 2008 NBA Champs. Paul Pierce is the reigning Finals MVP. Talk about Kobe being the best next year (that’s if the Lakers win the championship). Also you keep on talking about Bynum like he’s the 2nd coming of Shaq. C’mon !! Vujacic,Vladrad,Lamar..yeah. win with this group and i’ll give you my leg. make that my 2 legs.

  • DS

    Wow.

  • http://msn Shawn

    Yea… a fine line between conceited and confidence… Thank god calling yourself the best player in the world is only being confident, I guess we should all be scarred if Paul decides to get cocky! lol I don’t believe I have EVER heard Kobe call himself the best player in the league! Much less, the world. And if I remember rite, without KG, and Ray Ray. The celtics with “the best player in the world” were dead last a year ago. Now your all that huh? Right this absolutly laughable!

  • Max

    Well, Pierce never raped anyone…..

    That Paul pierce is a F@#%ing S%$#… They will not win or probabaly will not go to playoffs without the support of Kevin Garnett And Ray Allen… That’s only his first championship!

  • emil alido

    im not a Kobe Bryant fan but cmmom lets be realistic when it comes to talent; no contest that Kobe is better than Paul Pierce.

    But let me re-phrase what he said ” I don’t think Kobe is the best player. I’m the best ACTOR”

    Exactly..”BEST ACTOR” belongs only to Paul Pierce, & whoah! he still have the guts to say that huh…CELTICS will not win another Champ if Garnett & Allen was not there..

    Unlike the Lakers, Kobe proves that he’s the leader of the team.

    AMEN!

  • Inkster

    This guy, Paul Peirce should have stayed in that wheelchair so that I could show him who the best player is. The three amigos are going to submit to Kobe, Lamar, and Bynum/ Gasol next season now that the NBA is lagit. It’s going to be a MASACRE!

  • Jay

    “Men lie, women lie, but numbers don’t”! With that said Paul Pierce is not the best player in the world, and neither is Kobe Bryant! Lebron James is the best player in the world! He shoots a better percentage, better rebounder, & passer. He is all-around more efficient. Yes Kobe can shoot better from the outside than Lebron, but the object of the game is to put the ball in the basket & Lebron does it with less shot attempts.

  • Lakers Fan 08-3000

    Paul Pierce,look at your self where u are right now in Madrid getting stoned and look our MVP player the best player in whole world is in China getting his GOLD for us and for U shit talker and our country.who are you anyway without KG & Ray nobody.because all these years you couldn’t do shit on your own.but KOBE made it to the finals and he will do it again and again when ANDREW comes back next season oooopppps did you pea in your pants.that is exactly what i thought.

  • nikki

    I don’t know if he is the best player or not but i can tell you who isn’t kobe isn’t. he hasn’t done much since shaq left but he just had to have him gone to be the the “star” now the “star” can’t come through and then he just blames it on his team. and all of this comparing him to michael jordan thats just crazy he’s not even close.

  • You bunch of cry babies

    You Laker fans are the biggest bunch of illiterate, non english speaking, cry babies I have ever seen. Who the hell cares what Pierce says? He could say Kobe is a transvestite for all I care, I am still going to have to go to work tomorrow, they could bang each other like you freaks out there do to each other and I would still have to go to work tomorrow. What these morons say about each other shouldn’t get you douche bags in such an uproar. The Celtics are clearly the better “TEAM” as history proves (9-14 in championship appearances since moving to LA, pathetic) BTW, hope everything is ok after that little quake you guys had yesterday. Those things are so much fun !

  • Paul

    Kobe is not very good, I’d say Pierce is right. The Lakers better figure out how to win without Shaq or the refs if they want to talk back. Pierce is a Champion, Kobe is an also ran if there hadn’t been Refgate and SHaqgate helping him.

    Let’s see Pierce just torched Kobe and the Lakers in the finals, won the title, and took home Finals MVP. Why wouldn’t he think that he is the best player. He certainly was in the finals!!! I’ll take a great team player like Paul Pierce over a selfish gunner like Kobe everyday of the week.

Of course it doesn’t so stop your whining and have a nice championship-less off-season…

I LOVE LA!!

  • Mo from MIA

    I have been reading some of the posts by the Lakers fans and all of you nuts are crazy. In my opinion, Kobe is the best player in the league but the Lakers still won’t be worth a damn next season either. What in your opinion made the Lakers so great this year? They beat up on a Nuggets team who couldn’t play as a team. They won a series against the Jazz who are a up and coming team. And they beat an old, slow Spurs team to get to the Finals. But once they met a real team in the Finals, you saw the real Lakers; a one man show with a mediocre supporting cast. And I must say that they got their butts handed to them each game. L.A. needed to jump to a big lead in the first quarter to even be close by the fourth quarter. When they didn’t get that big lead, they were blown out in those games. One fan made a comment that Paul Pierce could not win before KG and Ray-Ray got there. Isn’t that the same as Kobe not being able to win without Shaq? In other words, it takes more than one superstar to have a legitimate chance at the title. Is Shaq or another superstar coming to L.A. next year? If not, don’t count on the Lakers being in the Finals because Kobe can’t do it alone. You Laker fans just need something to cheer for huh?

  • Ed Enochs

  • Gresham

    I used to have a lot of respect for Paul Pierce but he cannot compare himself to Kobe. Lets be real before this year he wasn’t even on the radar. If anybody is the best player on that team..its Garnett. Until he got there, the Celtics were the joke of the eastern conference. And making comments like that shows a lack of class.

Y’all forgive like snitchin is a fad nowadays…and before ANYONE responds to this, consider that doing so is basically saying, yeah I’m ok with the homie ratting on me to the cops. We’re still cool…Fuckin bitches…where’s your principles??? Kobe said to hell with LA, the fans, the team and now look at you. How QUICKLY you forgot and jumped ALL OVER his nuts, just to see him give up in the final game just like he did when the Lakeshow lost to the Suns a few years back after being up 3-1. Again, where’s your principles. How dare you let this guy rep LA

    You guys know he was joking right? Him and Kobe are friends off the court. Last summer they played against each other 1 on 1 more than a few times.

  • Red wears Green

    Pierce dominated Kobe and the Fakers in the Finals. How many titles has Kobe led his team to? Zero. Without Shaq, Kobe ain’t got nada. Kobe tried to run Phil and Shaq out of LA, and even demanded a trade less than a year ago. Phil only came back since he dreams of Jeanie, remember Phil’s book about how selfish Kobe is and always will be? Shaq was the MVP, regular season and Finals, drawing the double and triple teams allowing Kobe to run free. You can slot in any number of SG who could have won with the Diesel, proven by D-Wade; Kobe, not so much the one to lead. Like Jeter, Kobe is a great player, but one who won titles as the young kid following a team loaded with vets/HOF’ers; neither ever has or will lead his team to a title. Please stop comparing Kobe and Lebron to MJ (Magic or Michael); those guys led to multiple titles. Jordan led to 6, which would have been 8 had he not had MLB dreams. Kobe can be embodied in his 81 point game, which was awesome, but proved he is not a team player; teammates were standing alone under the hoop unguarded while Kobe took fadeaway 3′s and jumpers while double and triple teamed; Odom at one point had his hands on his hips wide open while Kobe jacked up a jumper. Phil later said that no, he did not call all those plays for Kobe, he just did what he wanted to. Let’s also not get into the whole Colorado incident. Basically you have a star who cheats on his wife, had criminal charges, tried to run MVP Shaq and Phil out of town, and who demanded a trade. But hey, it’s the LA Fakers baby. Let’s go Fakers! BTW your LA Fakers have only won 9 NBA titles, the other 5 were from the original MN Lakers.

    Boston Celtics 17 titles
    LA Fakers 9
    Minn Lakers 5

    Everyone knows there are no lakes in LA anyhow, ummm, don’t you?

  • LA LA LAND

    2 Things

    Lighten up people. When you win the championship, you can say ridiculous things like this. I know Lakers fans have short memories but do you remember the idiotic crap that 7 foot moron who played center for the Lakers would say?

    Q:Who are your top five favorite players in the NBA today?

    Pierce: Kevin Garnett, Ray Allen, Rajon Rondo, Kendrick Perkins and Paul Pierce

    When you win the championship, you’re the best players. Period.

    2nd thing: Do people speak and write english on this site. Unbelievable. I’ve been to places in South America where people made more sense.

    One more thing: Kobe is a great player, no doubt. Also a rapist with a terrible attitude that is like a cancer on that team. Good luck winning a championship with him.

  • 24 all the way

    I love that the Celtics fans and people that don’t like the Lakers come to THE LAKERS NATION website to defend Paul Pierce’s idiotic remarks. Yeah both players are cocky…yeah Pierce may have won with the Celtics in the Finals…but HOW long has it been since the Celtics won a championship? A FEW DECADES?!

    LOOK AT THE NUMBERS, NOT OPINIONS PEOPLE – they all spell out KOBE.

    Who cares if Laker fans get all crazy on this website? And who gives a flying f*** if Laker fans come off as illiterate? This isn’t SCHOOL where people are being graded for their posts! BOTTOM LINE: LOS ANGELES LAKER FANS ARE COMMITTED TO THEIR TEAM AND BACK THEIR TEAM UP 110%. This is the LAKERS NATION website, not the Celtics, not any other team’s website.

  • WolvesFan

    Pierce has nothing on Kobe. He is a drama queen who fakes injuries to glamourize himself as being great. In my opinion, KG got that ring for the team. He really should be MVP, as he is the most consistent (though ray ray started to light sht up near the end) and is the heart of the celtic beast. The closest that Kobe can be compared to is Jordan. No one else. Though honestly, Kobe is nowhere where Jordan was nor will ever will be. Sorry laker fans but that’s just the truth.

    Paul Pierce isn’t the best in the world but neither is Kobe. Kobe won three championships with an all-star team now he carries the team alot like LeBron. Get with the program and fauck the Lakers.

    What do you want paul to say? Every player should feel that they are the best. Didn’t he just outplay Lebron and Kobe and win MVP of the finals. He could have been MVP of the season as well. It’s not out of the question that he is one of the best players in the world. Kobe can’t play Defense either, and he is a horrible teammate and a rapist. Go celts!

    yall niggas is crazy as fuck. stop hating already. i know for a fact that pierce is just being funny. who takes a spanish interview serious anyways? things get lost in translation and they probably wanted to start shit. whatever though yall westcoast dickriders are dumb and ignorant as fuck, go continue to kill eachother. we got the chip and yall got blown out. bynum is overrated. kobe got denied, sasha go shook by jesus shuttleworth. gasol and odom are both on a KG poster. AHAHHHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHHAHH. kick rocks

  • Patrick

    Paul Peirce is definitely not as good as kobe. Think about Pual Peirce without kevin garnet and ray alan. the celtics were the worst team in the NBA. When kobe didnt have pau gasol he still made the playoffs.

    paul peirce is just a lazy FAT CHUNK

  • We da champs biotches

    OK all you whiny Kobe Kock ridaz, Paul was nothing before Garnett and Allen? Are you kidding me? Who could win a Championship with Antoine Walker as the 2nd best player gunning three pointers all day? Kobe is so great, right? THAN WHY HE HASNT WON SHIT WITHOUT SHAQ! Lebron James shoulda got MVP over him this year, his numbers were killin kobe’s all around, and pierce dueled toe to toe with him in the ECF game 7 41-45 points. Kobe, the supposed MVP this season, and pierce dueled in the finals averaged like 3ppg less than him in the finals, this all while sharing the ball with two other superstars ,so dont be so quick to throw his claims under the bus. (something crybaby kobe could never do). Being the “best player” entails more than just chucking up shots to try and score somewhere around 80 points in a game. You have to be willing to sacrifice your personal numbers for the good of the team. You have to be a LEADER! Not demand a trade every off-season and drive the best Big man in the history of the game, and the only reason you ever got a whiff at a title in shaquille o’neal out of town. So while Kobe’s scoring is admittedly on the prolific level, I wouldnt play a pickup game with that ballhog cuz hes not a team player. And once again to all the haterz saying he won nothing without KG and Ray, remember Jordan didnt do shit without pippen and a strong supporting cast, no one can win alone, not Jordan, not crybaby ballhog Kobe, and no, not even the BEST PLAYER IN THE WORLD PAUL PIERCE! Truth for president

    To the Moron Paul Pierce cock lover above me. Paul Pierce didnt have a team and sucked hard for what? a decade? Kobe didn’t have a team and made it to the playoffs in a harder conference regularly without Shaq.

  • Bird 33

    My two cents…I’m a Celtics fan, have been for over 20 years now. Paul Pierce is wrong. It’s good to have confidence, but he’s bordering on arrogance. He’s got two players next to him that are better than he is, one of them who redefined what it is to be a power forward in Kevin Garnett.
    Personally, I can’t stand Kobe Bryant. I think he’s arrogant and selfish, (going back to the whole thing with Shaq having to leave a Laker team that could still be churning out titles if Kobe could stand someone else scoring some points and getting some spotlight other than himself).
    I also think Kobe Bryant is over rated, and always has been. He is no Michael Jordan, never has been. Michael Jordan is the greatest player to ever play the game, and probably always will be. There are simply no comparisons. Larry Bird has always been my man, but as much as I loved the guy, you got to be honest, Jordan was, and always will be the best.
    But is Paul Pierce better than Kobe? Well in these last playoffs, yes. Over all, no probably not. Kobe has the more complete game, and can score more frequently than Paul. Kobe can also get his shot off quicker, and can score in bunches, where Paul has a harder time accomplishing that.
    And during the regular seasons Kobe’s Lakers were better than Paul’s Celtics without the help that the two teams would ultimately receive to put them in the finals last year.
    Paul’s great, Kobe’s better, both are headed to the Hall of Fame. Comparison’s are by nature fleeting, as they’ll never play 1 on 1, but I guess it’s fun to speculate. :)

    I may be a fan of the Celtics, but I don’t agree with Pierce’s statement, but I don’t think that such a big deal should be made about it. Celebritites in general have made dumb statements, done dumb things, and all that but they can’t take it back.

    Besides, we all now that Kobe could own Pierce. The Celtics just had a better roster (in my opinion). Maybe next time they meet in the finals then the outcome might be different. Who know. Until the name face-off.

  • Melvin Bell

    I don’t think Kobe is the best player in the world. He is a great player one of the best but I don’t think he’s the best. Paul Pierce is just as good, but because of a loosing team no one wants to say that. All you have to do is look at his stats and look at Kobe’s. I don’t give a rats ass who says what, when Kobe had a good cast around he won, while Paul has the same he won. I take nothing from Kobe but he is not the best player in the world.

    Actually Paul made it to the Eastern Conference Finals 1 year, 2nd round the next, and a first round 7th game after that With Antoine Walker while Kobe got his ass kicked with L O/ Caron Butler in the first round. Until He got Pau Gasol and baby shaq bynum he was nothing too

    1) When the Lakers got knocked out in the playoffs in the first round that year, Kobe had LO and Kwame, not Caron Butler. Shows how stupid you are.

    2) The East didn’t have that much competition than and now. Last season all it was the Celtics and Pistons, the 3rd place Magic would’ve barely made the playoffs in the West. Again, shows how stupid you are.

  • BostonGeneral

    Lets be serious Kobe(Shaq) won championships against sixers and nets weak teams. When Kobe had to play a real team like the pistons he got his back blown out, and he had shaq, payton, and malone. The celtics slapped around the piston before they piston(get it) the lakers. Maybe you forgot let me remind you fakers. 24 point comeback, 39 point demolishion lol, rotf. Beat LA. Oh yeah we did.

  • LA Lakers all the way

    Uhmmmm…… what finals were you clowns watching? yall are quick to say he only played good because the lakers had to defend kg and ray. oh, you mean the two passive all stars who wont go to the rack to save their lives? ray allen who was scoring like 6 points a game? kg who was shooting 25 foot jumpers all series? dont be mad cuz paul showed hes a better player than kobe, he proved it. kobe cant check paul but paul damn sure checked kobes ass! what was jellybeans field goal percentage? 37% or some shit like that? and stop comparin that nigga to mj. kobe is nowhere near what jordan was, hes just an imitator. nigga aint even better than paul pierce, and pierce proved it he didnt just talk shit. ask doc rivers, kg and ray allen who the fuckin man is. dumb ass kobe bryant dickriders just cant admit when that hoe nigga gets exposed.

  • http://ignoranceinc.blogspot.com Real

    Pierce – Has heart, never bailed on his team, plays defense, unselfish, won a championship as the leader and best player on his team.
    Kobe – extremely selfish, defense is over rated (pierce showed that), blames his team for everything that goes wrong, blames the coach, cries too much, rapes women, shoots too damn much and isnt that accurate (38% in the finals)

    Result? Pierce is better than kobe, accept it. kobe should have zero rings, they all came from playing with the most dominant big man in 50 years. ask d wade how he won. pierce took the team on his shoulders when kg and ray acted like all they knew how to do was shoot long brick jumpshots. and you think bynum is going to make things different? puleeeeze! Pierce all day.

    Magic won finals MVP one year the Lakers lost to the Bulls. Pierce is better than Kobe,…….when he needs to be. Kobe stood between he and the championship and so elevated his game to eliminate Kobe. Kobe’s game is incredible, only not against Pierce in the finals, and that is when you are judged as a man.

    The phrase is “when it’s all SAID and done” not “SET and done”, you uneducated primitive. Crawl back into your cave in the desert and eat another silver dollar cornmeal pancake you obvious genetic feedback blip. Woe is he who’s genes are obsolete. May you many groveling offspring excel in the service industries. Just kidding, please don’t let my words trigger your cowardly “strength in numbers” proclivity for violent outbursts. No seriously, you’d make a great servant.

    Thanks for your welcome! This website is better. It was made here in L.A. by we who have moved to L.A. because the media market it centered here. It’s centered here because the film industry was established here. The film industry was established here because of the temperate/arid climate. The temperate/arid climate made it possible to shoot films outdoor more days out of the year than in say Miami or Chicago. Heck YOU’RE lineage isn’t even from here unless your aboriginal. How about that, your sticking up for a place that you’re not even from. I’m guessing here but are you in the service industry? I guess next time you can welcome me to the restaurant(just a guess,fast food?) or auto parts store you work at. Just think, one day maybe, when you get your G.E.D. you might actually to be assistant weekend manager. Your 14 delinquent offspring, wife and her mustache will be so proud.

    • All about 18

      You are a dumbass PP carried his team to the playoffs 4 times before KG and Allen. One of those times making it to finals, and made one of the biggest 4th quarter comebacks in nba history( That’s a legit fact). Kobe just needs to stick with what he’s good at raping and getting away with it.
