Paul Pierce says he was a better wing shooter than Klay Thompson | NBA Countdown

  • Published on Feb 14, 2019
  • Chauncey Billups of NBA Countdown breaks down game film to compare Klay Thompson of the Golden State Warriors to Richard "Rip" Hamilton of the Detroit Pistons, then Paul Pierce and Michelle Beadle join in to discuss whether Klay is the best wing shooter in the NBA, with Pierce also saying Stephen Curry will beat out Ray Allen for the best wing shooter of all time. Then they debut a new segment called Truth Serum (4:33), in which Pierce claims he was a better wing shooter than Thompson.

    Steph, to me is a wing shooter. He doesn't opperate like a PG in that offense.

    The Truth is correct. Klay just shoots with no risks. He knows his team is so stacked it won't matter if he misses. Paul was shooting for the win all the time. Clutch and deadly!

    DAMN, I thought this was click bait at its finest for sure. But Pierce has developed that nursing home mentality since retirement. No offense to old folks or those with debilitating circumstances.

    He lk got a point:
    Paul Pierce was a bucket in the clutch
    KLAY is not clutch and NOTICE: he only plays well in quarters 1-3 in a game 6 or against ass teams like the bulls or the 2015 kings
    KLAY overrated like fuck

    Somebody need to tell Paul Pierce that he's not allowed to say who he better than. If you really great, others will say who you're better than for you. But Paul, you're not as great as you think you are which is why no one is agreeing with you. Furthermore, ESPN didn't hire you to make it about you. The only reason you're on the show is because you have some fans but that number is swiftly declining because of the things you're saying.

    Yuup. I agree with Paul Pierce he was better in his prime than Klay. He was on garbage Celtics teams after garbage Celtics teams. Like before Ray Allen and KG I think Antoine Walker was the best player Paul had with him the whole time he was in Boston. He single handedly made Boston relevant for years. Like Kenny Anderson, Erick Strickland, Tony Battie, Eric Williams, Patapenko, a young Joe Johnson were his role players Nd Boston would still end up 49-33 and make the playoffs put Shaq on Boston instead of LA. It probably would of been Paul Pierce that got the attention Kobe got. Instead of Kobe. Cause he could really do it all. Shoot, drive, he was a better passer than Kobe. Not trying to hate on Klay, but comparing Peirce to Klay is a little disrespectful to Pierce cause Klay has never had to carry a team like Pierce. So until i see him do that. I say Paul Pierce is the better player, by a wide margin in my opinion
