Former NBA player Ryan Hollins said recently that Paul Pierce and his Celtics teammates LeBron James considered “soft”. “That was our championship with which we could leave, until then LeBron was considered soft. We thought he wasn’t going to show up in the fourth quarter, we thought he wasn’t the right guy, and when the going gets tough he can’t go out and play, ”Hollins said to Brandon ‘Scoop B’ Robinson Scoop B radio podcast.
Sports analyst Skip Bayless, who has said several times that Michael Jordan is the GOAT, responded to the quote with a tweet. He pointed out that unlike LeBron, the Chicago Bulls legend was never accused of being soft. According to Bayless, James is therefore excluded from the debate about who is the greatest player of all time.
“I see a different story about how Paul Pierce and the Celts viewed LeBron as” soft “in his first round in Cleveland and his first season in Miami. It was soft. Has any rival ever accused MJ of being soft? NO! RIDICULOUS! That is why LeBron is excluded from the GOAT debate, ”tweeted Bayless.
James is looking for his fourth NBA title with a third other team this season. He averages 25.7 points, 7.9 rebounds and 10.6 assists per game for the Lakers.
