Paul Pierce says LeBron isn’t a Top 5 player

Paul Pierce isn’t letting his trash-talking game go during the lockdowns – throwing shade at LeBron James.

The ESPN analyst’s comments came on NBA Countdown: ‘LeBron is not among the top 5 in NBA history.’

Pierce’s reason? LeBron didn’t help build teams like other greats – mentioning Bill Russell, Magic, Kobe, Jordan, Kareem and Bird.

LeBron, on the other hand, had to hop teams to win championships.

Do you agree with Pierce? Does the fact that James has been able to take different teams to the top elevate him? Where does LeBron sit among the names Pierce mentions?
