Paul Pierce’s 1-word response to hater claiming he’s not NBA Top 75
As Jack Nicholson memorably said in A Few Good Men: You can’t handle the truth! That’s probably what Paul Pierce is thinking right now after he was named to the NBA’s Top 75 Greatest Players.
Pierce was absolutely a beast during his prime years with the Boston Celtics, leading them to the title in 2008 and winning the Finals MVP in the process. While his career slowly went downhill after that, largely due to his age, The Truth will forever be one of the league’s elite players.
One NBA fan, however, doesn’t totally agree. He made a NSFW post on Twitter, saying Pierce doesn’t belong in the top 75 list. This prompted the Celtics icon to reply using three letters.

At this point, Pierce, who also played for the Brooklyn Nets, Washington Wizards, and Los Angeles Clippers, is just enjoying his life. While he’s gotten a lot of haters in recent years because of his ridiculous takes during his short-lived stint with ESPN as a TV analyst, Pierce is just laughing at all the negativity thrown at him.
Just to recall, the talented forward was a 10-time All-Star, one-time All-NBA Second Team member, three-time All-NBA Third Team member, All-Rookie First Team member, and three-point shootout champion. He also holds a bunch of records for the Celtics. Plus, he will forever be one of the most clutch guys in NBA history.
So while Paul Pierce may get flak for being included in the NBA’s 75th anniversary team, he may have another memorable quote for the haters: That’s why they brought me here!
