Paul Pierce: “LeBron James will not be the best in NBA history if he gets eliminated”

The defeat of Los angeles lakers before Portland Trail Blazers by 93-100 in the first game of the quarterfinal series of the Western Conference of the NBA, criticism of the performance of LeBron James and his teammates, questioning their place in the history of the sport.

At least that is how another legend of the game considers it, such as the former forward of Boston Celtics, Paul Pierce, who from his position as a commentator for the chain ESPN, he assured that if the lagoons are out of the race at this stage of the contest, it would be a very big blow for the career of the Rey.

“If the Lakers don’t win, much less lose in the first round, you can’t put LeBron James in the debate for being the Greatest of all time”Pierce stated.

It did not stay there, because the 10 times All-Star, champion and MVP of the 2008 finals, added in this regard, in the debate that arose in the program First Take, than “If (the Lakers) don’t win this year, it’ll be a huge blow to LeBron’s legacy, because he will no longer be one of the top five of all time.

It should be remembered, in case anyone has forgotten, that in James’ 16-year career, he has won three NBA titles, two with Miami Heat and another with Cleveland Cavaliers, he has been the League’s Most Valuable Player four times and 16 times an All-Star Game nomination. A legend wherever you look at it.
