Paul Pierce recently named his All-Time Top 5 players. His list became a topic of many discussions because The Truth left LeBron James out, citing the fact that the Los Angeles Lakers superstar did not build a dynasty.

Sports analyst Shannon Sharpe disagreed with such rationale. He further said Pierce himself went ring chasing after LeBron dropped 45 points and 15 rebounds on him in the playoffs.

“Does Paul Pierce realize we wouldn’t even be mentioning him had Danny Ainge not pulled off the trade for KG & Ray Allen? Paul Pierce has never been the same since LeBron dropped 45 and 15 on him.”

Remember Game 6 of the 2012 Eastern Conference Final between the Heat and Celtics when James dropped 45 points.
