NBA Finals: Would getting swept damage LeBron's legacy?
Thursday June 8th, 2017

After Game 2 of the NBA Finals, Paul Pierce said Kevin Durant is the best player in the world. Then, Durant hit the game-winning 3-pointer in the Warriors frantic Game 3 comeback and Pierce doubled down on his statement.

And now the LeBron James crowd is pissed. That's good for us, though, because it led to a lot of amusing tweets.

Thanks goodness for that last tweet. It's good to see that someone gets what this is all about.
