  2. Joe 88 Says:

    Going by the track record, who would you have in the playoffs

    PP or Lebrick?

    Forget the regular season, cause that’s what ESPN is made for, think about the outcome, wade definently did something special in the finals, but it was against the MAVS, and even in doing so, after his injury, he hasn’t been the same player. Lebron? LOL, this nigga is more worried about the off-season then the playoffs, next………… Durant isnt experienced enough, Kobe? Well, last time they met up in the finals, peirce dominated that ass (n) not only did the celtics win, but peirce defense on kobe was a huge factor. PP vs Melo?

    Melo > Life
    Melo > Air
    Melo > water

    I was merely agrreeing with ya, but my bias opiinon obv is PP is amazing.

    As in want on my team always, atttitude is fine, hes got this shit in order, and plays each game. May not score a ton, but hes working around the court.

    Great player. if we were talking about playoffs, yes hes better then some of those. i meant overall before the next season starts kinda thing. in Boston, we feel most of he country underrates him now since hes got KG, RA, rondo

    KEv, yeah I know that comment made me queesy as I was writing it.

    Durant has 1 year in the playoffs…how the fuck are you comparing?

    Dumb asses…might as well compare John Wall to Paul Pierce..

    ^SMH. Like it’s not out of ordianry to hear Durant > PP. Point is, of course durant ceiling is higher than peirce, but when comparing players you gotta factor in every aspect. He been to the playoffs so he qualifies in this conversation, smh.

    You didn’t hear niggas saying lebron was better than kobe his playoffs apperance right? So why do we put durant over peirce?

    SMH

  12. NESTLE SNIPES Says:

    batty wash > batty boi ?

  13. DC (District of Chase) Says:

    Magic and Cavs are never serious… Them niggas be takin fake photoshoots and have pop-lock contest before every game… Them niggas play too much instead being serious about the game..

    ^You sound like that white boy that was on espn the other day. They’re star players are jokesters, class-clowns, comedians… if thats what they do, then thats what they do, that shit doesn’t affect the outcome of the game… smh

  14. sealsaa Says:

    Again, unlike Wade and Lebron, Pierce doesn’t have to carry a whole team on his back. He’s got Garnett, Rondo, and Allen to lean on(really, BOTH Allens). Besides, Pierce isn’t always THE clutch player for the Celts. It varies from game to game between the big 4.

  15. JDS just looks at her, looks at her... Says:

    smh @ eatin’ ass… go get a cheeseburger, nigga

  16. kevfrescura de talco Says:

    smh @ eatin’ ass… go get a cheeseburger, nigga

    ^^^^
    lol, well at least when they lose they can’t point that out..

  18. Dewill Says:

    Niggas on the sideline doin 10 min long handshakes and shit… They should do that shit when they lose too…

  19. NESTLE SNIPES Says:

    I kinda agree on Cavs and Magic taking shit too lightly and playing around too much.

    This nigga Dwight Howard is making movies, doing a whole lot of commercials, and conducting interviews with himself.

    I mean these niggas play around too much. Dwight hasnt won shit.

    Dwight is like the Black Peyton Manning, with the commercials.

  20. hl Says:

    Peirce been one of my favorite players. And he’s hella clutch. He already had the crazy numbers now he’s trying to collect those rings. HOF’er

  21. Paul E Says:

    Kobe 4 rings > Paul Pierce 1 ring

    LA ALL DAY!!
