Kendrick Perkins Recalls Incident When Paul Pierce Spit at LeBron James

"The Last Dance" only cemented that.

ESPN's The Last Dance documentary may have refueled the debate over whom between LeBron James and Michael Jordan deserves to be acclaimed the greatest National Basketball Association player in history, but Paul Pierce believes the former shouldn't even be considered among the top five players ever. "When we talk about these great players, they're all top-flight players in the top five or top 10".

"I go back and I ask myself, 'What has LeBron done to build up any organization from the ground floor?'" Pierce said.

"He went and put together a team in Miami, and in some ways, he came back to Cleveland to put that team together, and then he went to the Lakers, where a tradition is already made, and we don't know, that's to be continued", he added.

Walmart to wind down
That's Walmart's third-party e-commerce marketplace that takes a page from Amazon, including advertising programs . The Jet acquisition was "critical to jumpstarting the progress" Walmart has made in the last few years, he said.

Pierce's argument drew confused looks from his fellow analysts on the panel, Jay Williams and Jalen Rose. The two players engaged in some pretty heated battles when Pierce's Celtics met James' Cavs and Heat teams in the playoffs. After a clutch shot by All-Star point guard Kyrie Irving and Love's defense on the perimeter on MVP Stephen Curry of the Warriors, the Cavs came away with the Larry O'Brien, mounting a comeback after going down 3-1 in the seven-game series. Pierce and James almost got into a fight afterwards.

"Ever since that moment", Perkins said. We waited until the finale, but now it's time: Let's debate Jordan against LeBron James. They don't speak to each other.

While Chicago Bulls Hall of Fame shooting Michael Jordan has "The Shot" (both against Cleveland and later Utah in the 1998 Finals), LeBron James will forever have "The Block" attached to his name and legacy, ultimately delivering the long-ago promised championship to Cleveland.
