Lebron Says Paul Pierce Is His Biggest Rival
 

 

As much as we like to push a storyline for the sake of a great showdown, LeBron James is of the belief that Paul Pierce—not Kobe Bryant—has been the biggest rival of his career.

How is it possible that after years of hype, Nike puppet commercials and the constant preseason predictions of LeBron and Kobe somehow meeting in the NBA Finals that LeBron drops this bombshell on us?

Well, mostly because it's absolutely true.

In his 10 years in the NBA, LeBron has played 34 regular-season games against Pierce and the Boston Celtics, compared to just 20 against Kobe's Los Angeles Lakers.

On top of that, James and Pierce have met in the playoffs four times, playing a five- and a six-game series, and two seven-game series against each other.

That's 25 playoff games going head-to-head, all coming since 2008.

You can point to key moments in LeBron's career that came against the Celtics, while his games against Kobe's Lakers have been relatively exciting, just not nearly as important to his career as a whole.

In fact, very few games between the two stick out as actual "showdowns," unless you're counting the Christmas Day games that were only showdowns because of the unbridled hype involved.

When you tick down the list of important Celtics-Heat and Celtics-Cavs games over the last decade, they're in another league than any Lakers-LeBron matchup that may have come in that same time frame.

We had the double-overtime game way back in 2006 when the Cavs came out on top behind LeBron's 43, and despite Pierce's 50.

Or better yet, Pierce out-dueling LeBron in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals back in 2008, each player scoring over 40 points.

And of course, Game 6 from last year's Eastern Conference Finals when LeBron's 45 willed the Heat to a Game 7.

Kobe-LeBron was always a pipe dream, but Pierce-LeBron is something that's really happened. Plus, there might just be an additional showdown or two left between the two.



Do you agree? Who do you consider his rival? image

they were regular season rivals. especially after people were talking about wade as the best player in the league after he won a 'ship. if lebron doesn't join the heat and goes to another team or stays in cleveland maybe bron and wade might have met in the playoffs a couple of times by now or atleast by some point in their careers. hence why i said "could've and should've". but i guess reading is not your thing

pierce was never on bron's level as a player to be considered a rival. this had the potential of a true rivalry:

Then joined the superstar in his prime the following year

Because he couldn't defeat Paul Pierce

When Kobe already defeated Paul Pierce in the Finals

Lebron actually turned into godmode like he is now last year in Game 6 on the road in Boston facing elimination. Since then he's been on a warpath and by far the best player in the league.. possibly that stretch from then to now might be the greatest stretch by a player ever.. statistically speaking

Players don't have to be on the same level as far as style of play just to be rivals. If two players/teams are constantly colliding on the same path to a championships, I consider that a rivalry.
