    ESPN, Who's Better: Pierce or Anthony? And the Answer is......

    ESPN poses: Who's Better: Pierce or Anthony?
    http://espn.go.com/blog/boston/celtics/post/_/id/4681951/insider-whos-better-pierce-or-anthony


    This game tonight: Celts vs. Knicks basically answered the question in the 4th quarter.  When the game was on the line, Pierce took it to another level, got into Anthony's head and basically clowned him.

    Winner= Paul Pierce.

    Sorry Anthony fans, but that's the Truth.

    Pierce ate his lunch. Defensively, Paul ate Anthony up. Also, there is no comparison on who can take over a game.

    No comments about how Pierce left Melo wide open at the 3-point line?

    Who's better is a tough question.

    Pierce easily the better player defensively. On offense, thats a tough one.

    One thing Pierce has demonstrated is hes clutch and takes over a game when the Celtics need him. Melo has had his moments too but not on the big stage where Pierce has taken his reputation to a higher level.

    Finals MVP too.. means alot.

    Pierce gets my vote

    Melo had a great first quarter.  Pierce had a great 4th quarter.  I know they both count the same really but...

    Well, last night they DIDN'T count the same.  Kevin McHale had a quote I loved earlier this year, when talking about his days as a Celtic.  He said "You don't have to play a perfect game for 48 minutes, but you sure as heck have to play a perfect game for the last 48 seconds."  So true.  And then it's more mental than physical; you have to be mentally tough.

    Pierce is really amazing how often he takes over late in the game.

    I cant say Id pick anyone else in the NBA to take a final shot over him.

    The question is who would you rather have in a big game.  Pierce or Anthony? I mean really even a Laker fan could answer this one.

    Pierce slight and i mean SLIGHT edge on Anthony in final shots/end of game type situations

    Anthony gets my vote for who will more likely or easily drop a 35 on you... even in same # of touches/shots.. it comes easier to the taller/younger player right now

    Paul plays better defense

    Paul gets more assists and steals

    Paul has more guts, class and savvy

    Paul is more likely to pull out a clutch 17 point 12 board 6 assist 3 steal 1 block 7-7 from the line 2-3 from 3 game when the team needs its captain and glue guy to be a jack of all trades lock down defender while Ray and/or KG have the big 24-27 point outburst

    anthony NEVER does that

    Paul is the clear winner... not for much longer as he is 33... but DEF RIGHT NOW

    I never understood why Pierce never gets the publicity from the Networks. He is a closer bar none. He is one of the best finishers in the game. Shaq called him the Truth for a reason. In the long history of the Celtics he is in the top two finishers in franchise hystory.

    it's simple really. anthony is now what pierce was a few years back. the growth in his maturity since the big 3 came together has been phenomenal. it obviously clicked then that this was his shot at glory, his best opportunity to etch his name in the history books, and he seized the chance with both hands.

    anthony now has been gifted similar calibre teammates, at a much earlier stage in his career. will he now realise that scoring isn't everything, that defense, passing and rebounding are equally important? we shall see...

    Ever  since  Jordan  came  into  the  league, fans  and  pundits  have  over-emphasized  offensive  statistics.  Pierce  doesn't  take  nearly  as  many  shots  as  Anthony.  If  Pierce  played  on  a  sub  .500  team  and  was  the  go  to  guy, he  could  easily  average  25  points  a  night.  Anthony  is  a  great  athletic  talent.  However, he's  not  a  winner  b/c  he  doesn't  play  defense  and  isn't  a  team  player  like  PP.  It's  not  surprising  that  the  Nuggets  have  done  well  since  the  trade  and  the  Knicks  have  struggled  since  getting  Anthony.  I'd  take  Pierce  over  Anthony  without  hesitation.

    This thread's theme does not ask a fair question. The NY Knicks with their scrubs minus Amare and you want to give the nod to Paula? Reverse the teams and Anthony would be just as effective if not more so than Pierce.

    Amare and Anthony need serious help throughout their current roster. Most of their other Knick players wouldn't even make it in the "D" league.

    One could also make a strong argument that if Anthony replaced Pierce, the Celtics would not be as good of a team because Anthony would not be willing to take less shots, play better D, move without the ball...and many of the other things Pierce does that doesn't show up in the stats.

    In fact, I believe Pierce is to unselfish now and needs to do a little bit more ball hoggin.

    On the other hand, the Garderner Snake, which I call the Ultimate Ball Hogger, the only NBA basketball player that has taken ball hogging to a level as have never been seen before, which would draw a "Please pass the ball for goodness sakes" response from even MJ himself, has to be the most selfish, self-absorb basketball player in human history ever since humans started basketballing.
