Paul Pierce says he's the best player in the world - Ball Don't Lie - NBA - Yahoo! Sports
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.)
