Yeah, Pierce outplayed Kobe, but its funny to me when people act like Paul Pierce was the only reason that the Celtics won, and look to some dumb fu*k ESPN analysts to try and think that they were underdogs and that the Lakers SHOULD have won.
But the Celtics TEAM beat the Lakers TEAM. Paul Pierce didn't beat the Lakers. sh*t, Ray Allen had a good series, so did Posey and KG (for the most part).
So people should just stop acting like Paul Pierce single-handedly beat the team and now he's suddenly one of the top 5 or 10 players in the NBA.

Plus, it's more difficult to score on the Celtics defense and 5 different defenders on you per game than it is to score on the Lakers defense with 2-3 defenders. Not to mention that the Celtics had a whole scheme to stop Kobe, while the Lakers had to focus their attention on KG, Allen and Pierce.

Being the best player on the best team doesn't mean you're the best player.

People are so quick to forget that Ray Allen and KG are on the team.

Paul Pierce outplayed Kobe in the Finals, so as far as the playoffs go, Pierce seemed to be the more composed better player, but as far as the regular season and history goes, Kobe is the best in the league.

Paul Pierce is just telling people how he see's it thru his eyes. Most ballers have a tough time saying there opponents are the best. So I can't knock pierce for his comments. Ofcourse he will say he's the best all day. Just like I'm sure kobe calls himself the best too.

Posey was on Odom more than he was on Kobe. Did YOU even watch the series? Nobody is saying he shut him down one on one.

I cant believe yall are making a big deal out of the NBA Finals MVP saying he's the best after he beat Kobe and lakers in the finals. Yall n*ggaz acting like everybody should just bow down to King Kobe, and admit he's the best n*gga every opportunity you get. fu*k outta here with that. These n*ggaz are professionals, and if you the MVP of the finals and you feel like you the best SO fu*kING BE IT.
You might not be right but fu*k it, you won, so you deserve to say that. At least during the off season.
negative. i said 1 on 1 posey was on him more u stupid fu*k. how dumb are u kids? if u actually think PAUL PIERCE! is better than KOBE BRYANT, you should have been k!lled at birth. period.

All valid points I can't disagree with what you said. People will always give more credit to the mvp of the finals than the rest of the team though, anyone who watched the celtics all year long knows it was about defense from the beginning and then offense. They were a great TEAM because of their defense its just that Pierce shined cuz he scored some big buckets on top of the knee situation.

if you were paul n you just outplayed the arguably best player in the league at the highest stage in professional bball, and you are a great player to begin with...you cant really blame how he feels about himself despite him being right or wrong...sh*t i would think i was better as well...

Can you be realistic for a minute please? Kobe vs. Pierce/Garnett/Allen

Keep it 100...

There were 2 groups of people who thought that... Group 1, Laker fans, of course we're gonna hope our team demolishes the other team...

Group 2, is viewers/"experts" who don't really watch/know our team like that... Didn't realize that we weren't that tough to begin with...

When the season was coming to a close, I didn't even think the Lakers would MAKE the Finals... I was kinda in shock that we actually made it there... And it happened to be against the best team in the league, not a team that got there due to some crazy circumstances in their favor (last years Cavs) but the team that deserved to be there...

They were better, they were the best team all year, best defensive team... whoever doubted that, doesn't know basketball...

What fu*ks me up, is SOME Celtic fans/Kobe Haters, will discredit the Celtics TEAM, to try and make Kobe look bad, like he lost to last years Boston Celtics or something...

That's because the Celtics played like absolute sh*t during the playoffs and the Lakers pretty much dominated whoever they played.
Maybe they thought Ray Allen was gonna continue with his 4ppg and KG was gonna continue to disappear in clutch time.
Could that be possible?

i think this could be possible as well:

they only played like sh*t against the Hawks..the cavs n pistons were just tough defensive teams..however ray allen did play like sh*t through the postseason except for the finals...

i think the lakers just always had formidable matchups like the nuggets (who cant play d), jazz (very good but inconsistent on the road), and an injured ginobil..aging spurs team...so i think people were a lil blinded by those wins n didnt look at the real picture of how good the lakers were but many picked them to murder the celtics...but fu*k everybody has their opinions

Fam, it took 3 All Stars from 3 teams to come together to win 1 ring. Pierce is a great ball player but:

If it was a one game series, maybe you'd have a point.
