    In Response to Re: Mitch Richmond : Same as last year, when you got exposed as a Paul Pierce hater you tried to make up for it by trying to be nice to the other posters here.  If you truly believed rame made a great post there would have been no need for you to tell him to include Oscar, Shaq, and Hakeem on the 1st tier list.

    Nice try. Unfortunately that's just you being desperate and trying to make stuff up. Let's settle this once and for all, show proof that I said I wanted to trade Ray Allen for Mike Miller. If you can do that you will never hear from me again on this board.

     Wonder what the fans think, who has more votes for the all star game, Ray or priece.  Even though you probably voted for him 500,000 times. HAHAHA

     You better start voting for your other boy Mikey, he needs all the help you can give him.  Was there something you wanted to ask me!!

    Nah, you're just jealous because Pierce was an All-Star last year and Ray wasn't.

    Danny Granger also didn't make the All-Star team last year. But you would trade him for Ray in a minute, right?

     If we could trade Ray for Granger, i would do it in a minute. Granger is a very good player. We just missed out on him in the Draft, the Pacers took him just in front of us, and we were left with Gerald Green. I have to admit at the time i liked it.

     Mitch Richmond and Paul Pierce.  Both players have 1 NBA title, Both have scored over 20,000 points. Both career scoring ave. about 22 per game, but which of these players, has won all star MVP, was rookie of the year, and was all NBA second team 3 times?  Comparing Pierce to Mitch Richmond, is not a put down guys!!

    If you watched them play AND( a big and ) knew anything about basketball, you would never ever argue that
     Mitch Richmond was anywhere near as good as Paul Pierce. Actually ,Mitch`s game was more similar to Ray`s. That being said,if you watched them play you would never, ever (again assuming you knew something about the game)think that M.R. was anywhere near as good as Ray Allen.
    Certain posters remind me of two prepubescent girls argueing about whether JohorPaulL was the cuter beatle.I`m going to assume that they don`t have the same hormonal defense as said girls. If this post unites them in attacking me and gives every body a break from the boreing Paul v.RAY BS, I`ll feelthat I`ve accomplished my mission. Fat chance.

    "The main difference is that Pierce has maintained his high level of play while Richmond went downhill his last 5 or 6 years."

    Wrong - though you're not too far off -  that's the second main difference. The main is that in a sport where championships define your legacy more than any other professional sport, Pierce was the centerpriece and MVP of an NBA Finals team, and outplayed Kobe Bryant, who will go down as a top ten NBA player on most lists. 

    Comparing a wandering minstrel like Richmond to Pierce is indeed an insult and reflects a misunderstanding of how basketball legacies are built - in the finals. Otherwise Wilt Chamberlain would be thought of as the superior player to Bill Russell, whereas most see it otherwise. 

    Richmond though was a very good player. Comparing Pierce to Bird is a bit of a stretch and no serious student of the game would do this. Where it happens is that some have said Pierce is a more complete offensive player than Bird, and you can make that argument, though I wouldn't. But that's not the same as saying Pierce is in Bird's class. He shared Bird's passion for the Celtics but otherwise we all know Bird is at another level. No insult to Paul to say that.

     Actually that is what i said in my post, I said comparing Pierce to Bird, would be like comparing Mitch Richmond to Jordan.

    Reality check; Michael Jordan said Mitch Richmond was the 2nd best shooting guard in the league after himself, and this was while they were still playing against each other. Mitch played alone on horrible Sacramento teams and is easily a hall of fame player.  Anyone saying he isn't that good, or that Pierce isn't "only" a Mitch Richmond type player is either too young to remember him or a fool.  He was a baller...

    That's a good picture of Rocky Marciano. I watched a good documentary about his life on t.v about 6 monts ago. Off the basketball subject, but Rocky is worthy of the brief switch of topics.

    All Celtic fans agree that Pierce is not on the same level with Larry Bird.

    Just one question, who do you think is the better player, Mitch Richmond or Paul Pierce?

    I am sure Pierce would not be insulted to be compared to Mitch Richmond and I am sure Pierce has more respect than to consider him a wandering minstrel.

    Richmond was considered one of the top two or three at his position for about 10 years then lost it fast.  He averaged over 21 points a game for the first 10 years of his career.  Guess how many guys have done that.  7.  That's right only SEVEN guys have averaged 21 points or more their first 10 years. His career scoring average is 21 points a game.  He was on 2 olympic teams.  He was an all star 6 times and was all NBA 5 times and was Rookie of the year.

     Pierce has had a better career.  But Richmond isn't a joke.  He got a ship in a supporting role which is more than can be said for Stockton and Barkley among many others. If people think anyone would be insulted to be compared to him than they don't know a whole lot about hoops.
