It started back Paul Pierce was in Boston and the Celtics were contenders, he and LeBron James had some epic battles, which developed into a rivalry and spilled over into other games. Even the preseason.
Pierce takes this seriously. Very seriously.
My first thought: Pierce can recognize LeBron’s? Did not expect that.
Last season DeAndre Jordan and J.J. Redick wore the Nike Zoom Soldier 8, which is considered LeBron’s secondary shoe (it’s not part of his signature shoe line, but he rolled in previous incarnations at times). I imagine Pierce isn’t going to try to call that one out, and if he does I imagine Jordan’s response will be something I could not publish on this family-friendly site.
