In the past, pierce played for Celtic, LeBron played in the East, especially after the transfer from Cavaliers to heat in 2010, the two became tit for tat opponents. But on the whole, LeBron won more than he lost, leading the heat to beat Celtic twice in the playoffs.
LeBron has always been able to inspire my best, because you know what youre dealing with is the best opponent and you have to do everything. If you cant, youll be humiliated. Said Pierce.
He said that his opponents are very afraid of LeBron. Now I see him playing, I feel that others are very afraid of him. He makes everyone tremble, just like facing God. Im thinking about whats going on. I didnt feel that way back then. I wanted to challenge. I will defend LeBron and face the challenge
Although Pierce is not afraid, LeBron is also his bitter hand. Celtic won the title in 2008, had the strength to rule in the East, but because LeBron joined the heat changed the territory of the moment. Especially in the 2012 Eastern Conference finals, Celtic led 3-2, and the sixth game was their home court. But LeBron led the team to two cities and beat the green army.
