I posted earlier on Lebron's remarks, and as I read it over again. James sounds even dumber. Paul Pierce's response sums it up? Paul's remark of "I left Boston"? Is how he should have responded. Danny was the trigger man in the Nets deal. Paul Pierce, and KG didn't force Danny into that, and they didn't demand it. I'll give James this. KG did waive his no trade clause, but Danny wasn't giving into keeping Paul or Kevin, so Kevin went on his own terms, because Danny was adamant on dealing one of them, so why not leave with Pierce?
Lebron see's KG and Pierce as a threat still, despite the uniform change. This should be fun this season. If you didn't watch the clip above, please do. Pierce checks James in preseason action, love it..
"Tell LeBron to worry about Miami. It has nothing to do with Celtic business," Garnett said in response to James, who previously expressed thoughts that KG and Nets small forward Paul Pierce should apologize for criticizing Heat sharpshooter Ray Allen for leaving the Boston Celtics before they departed for Brooklyn.
"I left Boston?" Pierce said when asked of James' comments, clearly noting he had been dealt by the Celtics and didn't leave as a free agent.
Garnett and Pierce were both critical of Allen after he elected to sign with the Heat last offseason. KG said he lost Allen's phone number, and Pierce said he hadn't forgiven him.
"I think the first thing I thought was, 'Wow, Ray got killed for leaving Boston, and now these guys are leaving Boston,'" James said. "I think it's OK; I didn't mind it. But there were a couple guys who basically [expletive] on Ray for leaving, and now they're leaving.
"That's the nature of our business, man. I don't know what Boston was going through at the end of the day. I know Ray had to make the best decision for him and his family and his career. Doc [Rivers, former Celtics coach], KG and Paul did that as well. You can't criticize someone who does something that's best for their family."
James, of course, left the Cleveland Cavaliers to sign with the Heat in 2010. His "decision" remains infamous to this day.
"I can relate to that -- you think so? I'm the No. 1 relater," James said. "I've been through it all. I know all about it."
