Pierce: It’s the Nets’ Time in New York
J.R. Smith may think the New York Knicks are the marquee team in town, but Brooklyn Nets newcomer Paul Pierce has other ideas.
“I think the hate (for the Knicks) 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 on ESPN NewYork 98.7 FM’s “The Michael Kay Show” Thursday. “I think it’s time for the Nets to start running this city.”
