Earlier this week, Pierce said that James wasn't a top five player ever in NBA history which, uh, alright. I guess? I'm not sure how one doesn't consider eight straight trips to the NBA Finals and three championships including one against a 73-9 team a top 5 resume, but whatever.

At this point, you kind of just have to tip your cap to his willingness to stick to the bit. He's leaning into it.
