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

BEEF HISTORY NEEDS YOUR HELP ok maybe that’s dramatic but not far off. It’s nominated for a Webby Award and if you have a minute to vote, we’d appreciate you endlessly:
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.

  • Not a LBJ fan on the court, bullyball and a supersoft-no-defense- nba has let the man run wild. However...James should never punch down, let Pierce keep talking while Lebron becomes a billionaire.

  • In your joakim noah-LBJ beef episode you said Joakim was the best pest/foil LBJ ever faced. But I see now from your excellent story telling that Paul and LBJ had a bit extra to their rivalry. I must know The Truth. On and off the court who is the greatest foil to try and oppose the chosen one?

  • Pierce is trash lmao. You don't get props for "stopping" a generational talent (surrounded by bums) & keeping James from winning a title early on. He did what he was supposed to do with 3 other HOF worthy starters on his squad. Dudes a real clown & finds any which way to make anything about him.

  • Bro you leave out the part where Lebron got so crushed by losing to the Celtics he bolted to another team. He didn’t “overcome” the Celtics. He bounced to a new team and stacked the deck.

  • Pierce's words only make LBJ's victory tastes sweeter, and his own feeling worse. Paul, just shut up, because keeping talking about LBJ will only enhance that feeling.

  • See what the organization of Boston Celtic did to Isiah Thomas a few years ago, it is very narrow minded to emphasize on what a player did to the organization. We should look at a bigger picture, what a player brought to the entire basketball game, the NBA, and to all fans globally.

  • 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.
