Paul Pierce and LeBron James' beef started with spitting and escalated to family drama

Do you ever find yourself in a situation where you thought you’d put all the past relationship drama behind you, but for whatever reason you find the other person still clinging onto the history you had together? And does this drama come out publicly whenever you turn on the TV? No? Well, LeBron James does.
Despite having not suited up in the NBA for over three years now, in his new role as an ESPN analyst, Paul Pierce finds a way to trash LeBron James at any given opportunity. Envy leads you to say some absurd things - whether it’s saying that LeBron isn’t a top five player in NBA history, how it was him alone who made LeBron go to the Miami Heat in free agency, or just the thought that if the two were the same age he would have stopped LeBron from earning his NBA titles.
While Paul Pierce continues to hate, LeBron just keeps his head down and hoops. This is a situation that goes way beyond Pierce trolling on TV. It spans multiple teams, family members, and even a preseason spitting incident. This beef really has some history to it.

    • @Pinoy Dog Father Tv I mean they both had to get on super teams to beat each other. Pierce definitely played absurdly well against lebron for a 4 or 5 year stretch. And he’s right about Celtics being the reason bron went to Miami. Pierce was a big moment player. Wasn’t the most talented but was ridiculously clutch in big moments and big games. It just sucks that this rivalry had so much to do with super teams.

  • Wow! As a kid who grew up in Boston rooting for the Boston Celtics I am didn’t think that the feud was this Bad between Paul Pierce and LeBron James. I always loved watching those to go out it and someone thought LeBron was the one getting a Pierce. Now walking back out today and I’m much older now I am in deep shock if not ashamed to support someone who was so petty in so egotistical because one player had The capability to become more than what he could’ve been. Today I am a huge LeBron James fan and can’t believe that LeBron took all that heat and still kept trucking. I actually feel bad now for LeBron now knowing that he had to put up with all that garbage from Paul Pierce. Paul Pierce is the truth but he certainly doesn’t speak the truth.

  • 0:40 - Pierce and Antoine Walker helped build the foundation of the Celtics from back in the day, while LeBron really didn't help *build* a foundation for the Cavs. He split from them, won in Miami, then when Cavs had some picks ran back to Cleveland and had them trade those picks to get guys he wanted and won a chip. He then left again when things predictably broke down (no team foundation of young players and injuries hurt the team) and Cavs have been in Hell ever since. I think that's what he meant and it's certainly not a debatable thing; LeBron doesn't go to a team to build young stars and grow, he goes the instantly chip. It's why when the Lakers had Ingram/Kuzma/Ball/etc a few years ago people knew most of those guys where being dealt. It's why people knew Andrew Wiggins wouldn't be long for Cleveland when LeBron signed back with them.

Paul now and days gives bron credit calls him the best in the league but when’s he’s playing why would we expect that? I wish more star players would go at each other and make games interesting, just leave it on the court though!

  • The You-tubers Sneek dissing PP is showing he worships the king. Saying PP is no Zeek is a reach. In my opinion PP is a top 25 player of all time that rode it out wit Boston the big 3 deserved to come together with KG being loyal to Minnesota like PP was to Celtic. Add Ray who was traded 2 times (Not by choice ) He was best player on team both times. Bron going to MIA was cool. But he proved to be a ring chaser the min he left & went back contradicting why he left in 1st place! After killing Cavs cap and trading all its assets and draft picks depleting there franchise he goes to LA misses playoffs then trades there entire Franchise except 2nd rd pick Kuz 😂 for a top 5 player then wins a ring. I say, my fellow country men & women... This is your King???🤔💯😂😂
