With the trade from Boston to Brooklyn, Paul Pierce is now that much closer to his biggest rival the New York Knicks. It is no secret that Pierce had a dislike for the Knicks.
Recently Pierce said it’s time for Brooklyn to run New York.
“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 Thursday.
“The only thing that separates the two teams is a bridge. And both of them are in the same division and both of them are considered contenders. You can’t help but say this is probably gonna be the best rivalry in sports next year.”
Now all we can do is wait until these two team square off. The Bragging rights will go to the team that wins the games. Right now you have to like the Nets roster compared to the Knicks.
