Richardson: ‘Paul’s a great NBA player’

Just a week ago, Quentin Richardson made his feelings toward Paul Pierce very clear.

‘€œI don’€™t like them and they know it,’€ he said of Pierce and Kevin Garnett following their Game 1 altercation.

But on Tuesday, Richardson shared a different opinion after the Heat’€™s elimination in Game 5.

‘€œPaul’€™s a great NBA player,’€ he told WEEI.com. ‘€œThat’€™s the only opinion that really matters, his NBA game. He’€™s a good NBA player.’€

Even though Richardson referred to Pierce as ‘€œan actress’€ in Game 1, he said he never knocked his talent. That’€™s something that, in spite of their differences on the court, Richardson cannot deny.

‘€œI’€™ve always respected his game, never not,’€ he said. ‘€œI mean, he’€™s an All-Star, he’€™s a Finals MVP, he has his accolades, and he well deserves them. I take my hat off to him as a basketball player. Nothing will change that.’€
