On ESPN's show 'NBA Countdown' Paul Pierce had another rant about the current players in the league today. Pierce said today's players are scared of LeBron James more than the previous generation in which Pierce belonged. His statement brought a lot of attention even though Pierce is known for saying some pretty ridiculous things on TV.

"Players today are scared of LeBron. If they see LeBron standing in front of them, fear shakes in them. I know this. My era is out the league, we weren't afraid of LeBron. But these guys today, he strikes fear into these guys."

It didn't take long for other players to get involved in this debate, and it seemed Draymond Green, who previously had a beef with Pierce, took this personally. Green said Pierce is still scared of LeBron, who outplayed Pierce both in the regular season and the playoffs on multiple occasions.

Pierce's rant didn't see much approval from the fans either, who immediately took to the internet to troll Pierce in every imaginable way.

It will be interesting to see if Pierce responds to Green's comments simply because they have a history of not liking each other at all. It all started several years ago, and every now and then, they take shots at each other.
