Paul Pierce is an NBA legend, NBA Champion, and now NBA analyst for TNT. He knows the game of basketball. But whether or not "The Truth" was speaking the truth on Friday night is about as arguable as the policies that govern our nation.
When comparing his career next to that of Dwyane Wade, he made the bold claim that his own career was, in fact, better.
There is no arguing the greatness of Paul's NBA career. A 10x All-Star, 4x All-NBA, 2008 Finals MVP, and career averages of 19.7 points with 5 rebounds and 3 assists is certainly a resume that speaks for itself.
But in looking at Wade's numbers, there is a noticeable spike. He's a 13x All-Star, 3x NBA Champ, 8x All-NBA, and posted career averages of 22, 4 rebounds, and 5 assists.
He was key in restoring glory to the Heat in 2006, and then again in 2012 and 13 when he voluntarily took a back seat to LeBron James.
Former NBA player Jared Dudley noticed the difference as well and was quite harsh in his response to Pierce.
Cocaine is helleva drug! 😂😂 Both has great careers but Dwade is 3rd best SG of all-time
Yeah, sorry Paul, this is one argument you couldn't win. As Wade closes out the final stretch of his storied career, there is no getting around the fact of just how great he is.
