Paul Pierce Says Carmelo Anthony Is Toughest Cover In Players’ Tribune Post

Carmelo Anthony, Paul Pierce

Kobe Bryant is perhaps the best individual scorer basketball has ever seen. No player in league history boasts the combination of size, athleticism, scoring ability, and playmaking talent of LeBron James. And Vince Carter and Tracy McGrady are the best reasonable facsimiles of Bryant and James that have appeared over the past two decades. But no member of that esteemed quartet is the star who Paul Pierce deems his toughest defensive assignment. In a new post for The Players’ Tribune, the Washington Wizards forward and Boston Celtics legend says no player is harder to guard than Carmelo Anthony. Read More »

Paul Pierce On John Wall: “He’s Our Leader”

John Wall, Paul Pierce

At this point his career, the most influential aspects of Paul Pierce’s game are intangible. The 37 year-old can still make big shots, canny passes, and capably check elite opposing wings for stretches, but his days as superstar are long gone. John Wall is the Washington Wizards’ franchise player, and Pierce even insists that the 24 year-old is something more, too: his team’s leader. Read More »
