The TRUTH Speaks: Banners In Brooklyn And Knicks Hatred

Updated: August 9, 2013

New Brooklyn Nets small forward Paul Pierce was promoting and event for Sprint yesterday and took questions while at the event and had a few good things of note.

[quote_box]“I think that’s what they’re trying to build, but in order to do that you gotta have the players, you gotta have great management, you have to have great owners and that’s what I see in place in Brooklyn,” Pierce said.[/quote_box]


While he made his media rounds yesterday Pierce also made an appearance on ESPN Radio 98.7 with Michael Kay and spoke about how his “hatred” for the New York Knicks will now grow and intensify with the move to Brooklyn.

[blockquote]“I think the hate has grown a little. Everybody knows how much I disliked the Knicks when I was with the Celtics, but I think it’s grown to another level,” Pierce said Thursday on ESPN NewYork 98.7 FM.

“I think it’s time for the Nets to start running this city.”


“The only thing that separates the two teams is a bridge,” he said. “And both of them are in the same division and both of them are ESPN Radioconsidered contenders. You can’t help but say this is probably going to be the best rivalry in sports next year.”


“What team in the NBA can say they can put a starting five out there with all the guys have been All-Stars?” Pierce said.


“That’s tough. It’s definitely the most talented team, but come the end of the year — June, July — when I’m out there on the beach, I want to say this is the best team I’ve ever played on, and the only way we can do that is to win a championship.”[/blockquote]

This makes me smile from ear to ear to hear this man talk about how he really feels about the Knicks.

I want to hear every Nets player feel the same way and bring that passion to the court this year and make a serious run for a championship.
