Paul Pierce made the argument for why he doesn’t think LeBron is a top 5 greatest NBA player of all time during Tuesday’s episode of NBA Countdown.
The former Celtics player explained that he started thinking about what LeBron has done to build up teams in the past, stating, “What has LeBron did to build up any organization from the ground? I’m talking about these players, top-5 players. Bill Russell built the organization of Boston, Kareem, Magic, Jordan, Tim Duncan, Kobe, Bird. These guys are all-time top 10 players who helped build their organization or continued the tradition.”
