Sorry if I'm late or if this has already been posted, just thought you guys should hear this lol...

Finals MVP Paul Pierce, who recently spent three days at a ball camp in Madrid, is making, ahem, news about what he said to a Spanish reporter. The money translation, via RedsArmy: "Q: Is Kobe really the best player in the world? Pierce: I don't think Kobe is the best player. I'm the best player. There's a line that separates having confidence and being conceited. I don't cross that line but I have a lot of confidence in myself." Surprisingly, Spurs fans seem more upset by this than actual Lakers fans. (Update: OK, Lakers Nation is pretty upset, too.)

Well, if he said so in Madrid, I wouldn't discount the chance that it was totally taken out of context (like a cut and paste of sentences)... Remember that I know our sports media, which is usually way worse than the american one. Anything to sell papers.


If it wasn't edited, it'd be interesting to know the context in which he said so. It just seems too preposterous to believe it.

Our media will edit, anything. I mean, c'mon. We just had a Celtics vs Lakers Finals match up. Kobe was MVP of the season but he sure wasn't playing like one against the Celtics. Pierce played spectacular. Pierce feels like he's on top of the world. So when he's interviewed, the media takes parts of his interview and edits it into something bogus that he never truly said. For all we know he probably added some joking smile in at the end.

If this wasn't edited, I'd be shocked. That's how bad our media is.

Kobe
Le Bron
KG
Tim Duncan
Nowitzki
D.wade
G.arena (before injury)
C.paul
Boozer
Amare(possibility)
Dwight Howard(possibility)

Right now, to start a team from scratch or to get a player that sets the team up for winning now and the future, the young guys on that list would be better options but talking about talent, Pierce beats most of them and has been a superstar for years.

Pierce, to me, beats everyone on that list "right now" except
Kobe
Le Bron
KG
Tim Duncan
Nowitzki
D.wade
G.arena (before injury)
and it can be debated with Dirk and Duncan, not to me but most on here
