On the upcoming episode of fubo Sports Network’s “No Chill with Gilbert Arenas”, Paul Pierce talked about James Harden and his future with the 76ers.
The former NBA champion remembered playing for Doc Rivers, who is currently the head coach of the Sixers, and talked about how he could get along with Harden.
“He respects Doc. I don’t think he respects Steve Nash,” Pierce said. “And then his time in Houston just got old. When you play for a team so long and it just y’all don’t make it, it’s just like … but I just thought he gonna respect Doc and Doc is gonna do everything in his power to try to make them to work.
“But my thing is when I look at that, Embiid right now is the best big in the game but I’m like … if I had the chance to play with the talent that Harden plays with, I’d probably be walking out of here with 5 championships.”
Arenas for his part thinks that Harden will have trouble adjusting his game after so many years of playing the same brand of basketball.
In addition, Gilbert sits down with Paul Pierce to discuss why he almost left Boston for Dallas, why he had to get out of LA to be able to focus on his game and how truly competitive Kobe Bryant was on and off the court.
The former Celtics player talks about these topics and much more in depth throughout the episode airing this Sunday, March 13th at 7pm ET/PT.
