Draymond tells Pierce to 'shut up' over LeBron comments originally appeared on NBC Sports Bayarea
Draymond Green never has been the world’s biggest Paul Pierce fan.
Back when the former Boston Celtics star was a player, Draymond famously put him in his place with some brutal trash talk during a game at Oracle Arena.

So when Pierce, now an NBA analyst on ESPN, talked about himself not being “scared of LeBron” James as he believes today’s generation of players are is, Green made sure to set the record straight.

Pierce and his Boston Celtics team, the original Big 3 with Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen, won one NBA championship during the five years the trio were together in Boston.
Although James and Green have been rivals on the court, the two now share an agency and have become much closer off the court.
Now that Draymond has become a television staple during this year's NBA playoff coverage, Pierce’s bizarre takes won’t go unnoticed.
