Paul Pierce will not answer your Knicks questions

Ever since being traded to the Nets this past summer, Paul Pierce has made it a point to fan the flames of any rivalry that may exist between Brooklyn and the New York Knicks.

With the Nets being the superior team at the moment, currently riding a little win streak that has them holding down the fifth spot in the Eastern Conference standings, Pierce had no desire to give any shine to the Knicks, who have been dominating headlines this week with the reports of them signing Phil Jackson to a prominent front office position.

If you expected a different response, maybe one that included a well-thought-out statement on what Jackson might bring to the floundering franchise, then you haven’t been paying attention.

Pierce has taken his role with the Nets very seriously from day one, even going so far as to commit a playoff-style foul against LeBron James during the preseason simply to send a message.

He’s not going to change now, and I’m sure if you ask his teammates, they’ll tell you that Pierce’s mental state seems to be in just the right place.

    Just shows you that no matter what happens, the Nets will never overtake the Knicks popularity-wise in New York. The Nets are playing so much better and still the Knicks get the headlines and the attention

    Pierce just seems like the douchiest guy, but only when he talks
