Paul Pierce is doubling down.
The former Boston Celtics star boldly claimed after the Golden State Warriors took a 2-0 series lead in the NBA Finals that Kevin Durant is the best basketball player in the world, and he didn’t hesitate to mention it again after Durant helped the Dubs beat the Cleveland Cavaliers 118-113 in Wednesday’s Game 3.

And he said more of the same on ESPN’s postgame coverage.
The Truth (and Dwight Howard) are siding with Durant over LeBron James.
