Speaking in an interview with Heavy’s Brandon “Scoop B” Robinson, Chalmers shed a little light on the longstanding animus between Pierce and his former teammate LeBron James, who battled one another for supremacy of the NBA’s Eastern Conference for much of the latter half of Pierce’s career in the league. “I think it’s something personal,” offered Chalmers about his fellow Kansas alumnus. “I just feel like Paul Pierce never got the respect that he deserved when it comes to him being that type of caliber player he is,” he added.
“When you think about the top small forwards, you don’t name Paul Pierce,” he explained. “You name T-Mac, Scottie Pippen, James Worthy… you name guys like that. And I just feel like when they named ‘Bron he’s like he’s did things and I should be up there, too, I did just as much as these guys did; I got the ring, I got the numbers… why is my name NOT up there? So I think that it’s a little personal matchup between him and ‘Bron. I don’t think it’s really any dislike; I just think that’s how he feels.”
