Video: Paul Pierce says he was LeBron James' greatest rival

Well the panel agreed with The Truth, so there's that. LeBron never had a rival like Bird had Magic. The NBA wanted so badly the LeBron vs Kobe finals match-up, but that never materialized. LeBron made the Finals in 2007, but then didn't the next three years where Kobe's Lakers were in it. Starting with 2011, LeBron has made the Finals every season (which is rather remarkable. Got to give him that), but Kobe's Lakers went downhill starting then. LeBron faced Tim Duncan's Spurs 3 times in the Finals and has now faced off vs. Steph Curry's Warriors 4 times, but maybe due to different positions, neither are really looked at as rivals.
