Paul Pierce can’t stop yapping about the Knicks


Via ESPN New York:

Paul Pierce‘s comments have the whole city talking.

In case you missed it, Pierce, one of the Nets’ newest star imports, recently told ESPN New York 98.7 FM, “I think it’s time for the Nets to start running this city.”

On Wednesday, die-hard Knicks fan Spike Lee fired back.

“Other teams are making a lot of noise with their big, major announcements with every move, like the Nets,” Lee told during an event honoring Carmelo Anthony for his contributions to the New York City community. “The Knicks have been very quiet assembling their team, which I love. I love the fact that people are picking the Knicks fifth or lower in the East. It’s great; let people think that. Paul Pierce is talking crazy.”

I know why Paul Pierce has ramped up the preseason trash talking. He’s trying to psych himself up for a season in Brooklyn.

Sure, his team has championship aspirations but his heart is still in Boston.

I find it hilarious that league officials had to tell Jim Dolan and Mikhail Prokhorov to play nice.

If I was sitting in the commissioner’s chair, I would have sent the following memo:

Dear owners,

It’s rather embarrassing that two franchises that haven’t won squat in 40 years are dominating media headlines.

Please refrain from trash talking until one of your pitiful franchises wins something other than a division title.

And how delusional is Spike Lee? He’s happy with Andrea Bargnani and Ron Artest?

    I’d totally encourage the trash talk. It’s good for the league when teams actually hate each other.

    The Knicks offseason has been a joke. If Bass + Green can still handle Melo I wouldn’t be surprised if we beat them more than they beat us this season.

  • LA Flake

    The league getting involved in this is just embarassing. Par for the course for David Stern I guess.

    I love trash talk. That is what basketball is all about; talk trash and back it up. I do however think it should only be between members of the organization whether it be player, owner, coach, GM (Danny and Pat)…My point, get out Spike!

    Bargani and Artest will take the Knicks to the top, baby! Not! Knicks are trash. A depleted and battered Celtics team took the Knicks 6 games. Turnaround was getting badly bounced by the Pacers.

    It`s definitely a challenge to get excited over this “epic rivalry”. The Knicks last won a banner in `73, the Nets last won a banner {ABA} in `76.

    In other words, Elvis has NOT missed any NY basketball victory parades!!!

    I love the rivalry between the Knicks and Nets, and Paul Pierce’s recent trash talk. but Spike Lee has a problem. He’s so obsessed with the knicks that he practically thinks he’s an nba player himself. Last week he was talking about his lack of a relationship with Kevin Garnett, as if Garnett could give two @@#$’s about him. Spike Lee should stick to making movies, especially since he hasn’t made anything noteworthy in years.
