By J.E. Skeets

Finals MVP Paul Pierce, who recently spent three days at a ball camp in Madrid, is making, ahem, news about what he said to a Spanish reporter. The money translation, via RedsArmy: "Q: Is Kobe really the best player in the world? Pierce: I don't think Kobe is the best player. I'm the best player. There's a line that separates having confidence and being conceited. I don't cross that line but I have a lot of confidence in myself." Surprisingly, Spurs fans seem more upset by this than actual Lakers fans. (Update: OK, Lakers Nation is pretty upset, too.)

Pierce was the best player in that Lakers/Celtics series. He's still on a high from that, I think. It will wear off soon.

Paul Pierce isn't even as good as Chris Paul, actually it's not even close.

Hate to bag on a KU guy, but no, you're not, Pierce. It's Kobe, and it's not even a contest.

I'm happy with D-Wade (as long as he's really healthy).

I can only imagine what Kobe or LeBron would have done with Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen on their teams this year.

Exactly!

I guess the ring comes with a bag of weed now too?

I take it that Robert Parrish is still close to the organization?

Although I think Pierce was a bit high (or at least sarcastic)....I call BS on this.

Pierce has, in the few playoff appearances he's had...rose to the occasion and had MVP-type performances.

KG has disappeared in several different playoff series throughout his career.

There are so many good young guys out there. It matters more how they mesh with the team. Sure PP is good, but he ain't the best.
