Pierce’s claim was met with much derision online.
NBA player Jared Dudley laughed and suggested Pierce was on drugs.

Pierce is a Hall of Fame player who probably deserves more respect than he receives. However, you can always pick your stats to make the argument you want. There are other stats that make Pierce’s argument much better.
Pts: Pierce 26,397 (15 NBA history), Wade 23,065 (30)
Reb: Pierce 7,527 (81) Wade 4,913 (?)
Ast: Pierce 4,708 (73) Wade 5,680 (42)
TS%: Pierce .5679 (95) Wade .5542 (176)
ORtg: Pierce 108.78 (235) Wade 108.94 (235)
DRtg: Pierce 102.72 (109) Wade 104.45 (191)— John Karalis (@RedsArmy_John)
In the end, Pierce is just showing again that he’s jealous he didn’t get the farewell tour Wade received. We’ve learned.
