Paul Pierce knows one thing, that he can literally shut kobe down in a series , and he did on defense, sh*t even Ray Allen played good defense on Kobe, that series destroyed KOBE's legendary status, I mean Jordan never faultered in the FINALS, Kobe got owned by Paul Pierce multiple times in that series, and Kobe could not get by Paul Pierce. TRU STORY.

paul pierce with two other hall of famers and then kobe with one borderline all star in gasol and a decent player with odom, hell the celtics had better won that sh*t!! i got more respect for kobe getting his less experienced squad to the finals then pierce with more experienced vets like posey, pj brown, allen, cassell, garnett!! hell the celtics were supposed to win aint nothing special about that,
if pierce really did say that then he feeling himself a little too much
Yup, and with a caveman coach like Doc Rivers, and oh yea these guys never played with eachother before this season yet they won how many games?????? And were they even favored to win in the FINALS????? or against the PISTONS????? Nope...... You better Give Allen , Garnett, and Pierce a little more credit , they got it done because they knew they could get it done, NOBODY else thought they could, if they were suppossed to win that sh*t , then nobody would say otherwise, but that wasnt the case, these 3 guys excluding Garnett a little bit were underrated from the beginning of their careers, everyone would say ALLEN cant carry a team, that he never did, that he wasnt a leader, which is totall bullsh*t, im glad Pierce and Allen got their rings, they unlike KOBE the primodonna f*g**t that he is, deserved every bit of notireity for their performances in the playoffs

was u not looking at the finals ?

and did u not see paul guard kobe than at the other end kobe guard paul ?

isnt kobe 1 of the best defenders in the league ?
I was looking at the finals...I saw kobe only guard pierce in the 4th quarter because they didnt want him picking up cheap fouls. Stop acting like Kobe guarded pierce all game.

WoW....I like Paul Pierce and respect Boston's championship but he's not as good as Kobe. He had a great season and playoff run this year but where has he been since Twan left?

He had the worst record in basketball without Ray, James, and Kevin, now he gets them, wins a title, and is the best thing since bubble gum?

Where I'm from, we call these guys "FRONT RUNNERS".

Kobe went to war against KG PP and Ray Ray plus a whole bunch of other hungry veterans.

Kobe's team was good but they were just clearly out played Kobe couldn't beat a team especially like boston byhimself

Yep. That being said, how does Paul Pierce being better than Kobe factor into the equation?

He couldn't have meant it that way. He was probably just tired of hearing Kobe's name or something.

The Truth been an all-star and force every since he came into the league...Was even bringin 'em to the playoffs when they had that bum-ass Antoine Walker...Now he took a big hot sh*t on Kobe Bryant in the Finals to get his ring...So I see nothing wrong with his confidence...I mean he did shut down the alleged "best" player in the NBA...

Kobe fans get emotional...even after the fact this dude not only went toe-to-toe with the REAL "best" player in the league (LeBron) but then OWNED the Lakers to get his ring...sour a.ss Laker fans with your "best team on paper bullsh*t"

is he really wrong?

do i think he's a better overall player? nah, but there ain't that much seperation between them like some of the fanboys are trying to make it out to be, and to be honest, his team won...and they ain't win just because they were stacked, pierce was d'ing kobe up

not only that, on the other end, even with kobe supposedly being this "Jordan" level defender on the perimiter, they had to keep throwing other players at paul, because he was doing kobe in on the offensive end as well, i don't see ANY problem with him seeing himself as better than kobe bryant

that n1gga is a great defender, he took the ball to the butter without fear unlike kobe....god he irks the sh1t out of me thinking he's reggie miller or something, somewhere a long the line the lakers got their balls removed and got afraid of contact, kobe would be so much more effective going to the hole, getting to the line than launching 3's and expecting bums to knock down good shots when he distributes

IMO, the jordan comparisons, should be just about done here

teammmates aside, paul was hitting that n1gga up, in one on one situations offensively and defensively...the only reason why he's not "the best" to yall, is because david stern hasn't marketed him as such, the proof is in the pudding my n1gg

paul, an all star player, i believe he's the celtics all time leading scorer....SHOWED UP, he has every right to put his name above kobes if he should so please, you guys gotta stop acting so surprised that not everybody is as mesmerized by jordan-lite as you are

all the power to him if he thinks he's the best...i mean all the games that REALLY mattered (including elimination games) he stepped up BIG time for the celtics when nobody else did....if you think your the best prove it...n he did a considerable job this year to make it arguable he's elite...

I think nobody could argue who is the better leader?... Pierce > Kobe
However, on a full season to season to season...Kobe > Pierce

team was .500 without Bynum or Gasol, just like the previous years. 45 wins wasn't getting 'em into the playoffs


edit-

It's why the whole "make teammates better sh*t" is bs. Kobe shot alot 'cause a his team sucked. Better teammates= better team = less need to gun

Time out. Lets not act they were matched up the entire series and going play for play. And please don't forget when Kobe switched off on him and locked his a.ss down in game 3. In fact the only time Kobe guarded Pierce is when he had already got hot. Kobe couldn't guard Rondo, Ray, Posey, House, and Pierce at the same time although he tried.

He has a right to put his name in the same sentence as Kobe but above is a little bit of a stretch. I like Pierce too and feel that he is underrated by many but he has never been the caliber player that Kobe is.

He wasn't even the best player on that team. It was KG's defense and tenacity that got them there. That team followed Garnet's lead. Pierce was just the poster boy because he had been there the longest.

Kobe proves it day in and day out. He just wasn't enough for the create a team.
