One of the more intense inter-player rivalries of the last several decades was between former Miami Heat champion Dwyane Wade and Hall of Fame Boston Celtics small forward Paul Pierce, with the two stars going at it on the court throughout the lengths of their professional careers no matter the team they were with.

And that rivalry spilled into their retirement, with some acrimony over who had the better career overall leaking into the narratives surrounding their respective recent retirements. But when it comes to NBA nicknames, Wade is willing to concede that Pierce has one of the best — his personal first choice, actually, when asked about that topic in a recent question-and-answer session he conducted in a video for Wired.

Watch the clip embedded below to hear all the former Heat guard had to say about NBA nicknames, The Truth, and more.
