After withstanding a Twitter beatdown from Paul Pierce last week, Warriors forward Draymond Green has fired back with vengeance.

The latest chapter in the Pierce-Green feud happened Tuesday, when Green took a shot at Pierce’s career with the Celtics on his podcast.

“People tend to forget he was struggling to to get to the playoffs … Then all of a sudden Ray Allen and KG showed up. Let’s not forget that,” he said. “Just because you were scoring points don’t mean you were carrying the team. If you couldn’t get anywhere and you couldn’t do nothing, where were you carrying them to? … Pierce had had an amazing career. He was a beast. But how far was he carrying those teams? If you weren’t carrying them that far, I guess we’re in the same boat.”

During the Warriors-Clippers contest last Thursday, Green told Pierce, who’s in his final season, he’s not deserving of a farewell tour. That prompted Pierce to remind Green about the Warriors’ collapse against the Cavaliers in the NBA Finals last season.

While Green has a point about Pierce needing Kevin Garnett and Allen to reach the promised land, that’s hardly a negative commentary on the Truth. It takes more than one star to achieve success. Just ask Thunder point guard Russell Westbrook, who’s averaging a triple-double this season and will be lucky to win a first-round series.

The Clippers and Warriors don’t face each other again this season, so if Pierce and Green are going to continue their beef, it will likely have to wait until the playoffs.
