Paul Pierce, Jalen Rose and Chauncey Billups started the New Year on NBA Countdown by giving us their top-10 players for 2019. The consensus No. 1 player was LeBron James to the surprise of no one, but as the lists progressed, the three former NBA stars had some interesting differences.
The Truth’s top five consisted of LeBron, followed by Kevin Durant, Stephen Curry, James Harden and Giannis Antetokounmpo, but he disagrees with Jalen and Chauncey because of their placement of Harden, last season’s MVP.
“There’s no way James Harden is in the middle of one of the greatest runs and is number what on [Chauncey’s] list? Number six? Come on,” Pierce said.
