Pierce: Nets' Identity Will Be Toughness

With words from LeBron James about the exit of Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce from the Boston Celtics still ringing in their ears Pierce delivered a shoulder block to James on a breakaway in the first quarter of Thursday's game between the Brooklyn Nets and Miami Heat. Garnett also landed a soft blow on James' head. "That's going to be our identity" Pierce said...

Kevin Garnett fires back at LeBron James

We all know how intense Kevin Garnett can be. LeBron James went on record to essentially call Garnett and teammate Paul Pierce hypocrites for the way they treated Ray Allen after leaving the Boston Celtics to join the Miami Heat last season last season. Garnett and Pierce, along with Doc Rivers and other Celtics’ players were quick to pass judgement on their former teammate (Allen...

LeBron on Pacers/Bulls: “There’s Tension, but There’s No Rivalries”

Are there any true rivalries left in the NBA? The closets I can think of was the Celtics-Heat but with the departure of Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce to Brooklyn, one would assume that matchup will be a lot less tense. LeBron himself spoke on rivalries and specifically the Bulls and Pacers. LeBron on Indiana/Chicago […]

Kevin Garnett Fires Back At LeBron James

After defeating Miami 86-62 in a preseason matchup on Thursday night, Kevin Garnett fired back at LeBron James for the comments he made about KG and Paul Pierce leaving the Celtics. According to the NY Times: James stirred things a bit Wednesday, saying he found it interesting that Garnett and Pierce, who were critical of Allen’s decision to leave Boston, had now moved on from...

Report: MarShon Brooks ‘Wanted Out’ of Brooklyn Before Nets Traded Him to Celtics

Paul Pierce came close to tears. Kevin Garnett fought the deal to the end. But at least one player involved in the blockbuster traded between the Celtics and Nets could not have been happier to get a new address. In the early versions of the rumored traded on draft night, Nets big man Reggie Evans was reportedly headed to Boston. Evans, who is a fan favorite in Brooklyn, probably...

KG "fascinated" with amount of talent on Nets roster

Since being traded to the Nets during the offseason, Kevin Garnett hasn't exactly had the most glowing things to say about coming to Brooklyn. It's no secret that Garnett did not want to leave Boston and only did so because he was leaving with Paul Pierce as the Celtics began their rebuild after the "Big Three Part 2" era. Garnett was an amazing Celtic and will...

LeBron James calls out Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett, Doc Rivers

Thursday night at the Barclays Center a special pregame ceremony will be conducted prior to tip-off to retire the jersey of Brooklyn Nets head coach Jason Kidd. There is, however, another storyline that has captured the attention of many. The Miami Heat are coming to town, and will square off with the new-look Nets for the first time in the preseason. It will be the first time the...


Toughness is an underrated quality in the NBA these days. To be contenders, teams need a good offense along with a strong defense, but they also need that one quality that eludes a lot of teams, and that is toughness. I've always felt that one of the reasons that the 2011 team faltered after Danny traded Perk was because, even though they still had KG, they lost much of their...

LeBron says KG & Paul Pierce Criticized Ray Allen for Doing the Same thing They Just Did

Remember when Ray Allen left a lot of money on the table to bolt from Boston and take his talents to South Beach? Allen was destroyed by his former teammates, particularly Kevin Garnett. KG even admitted deleting Allen’s number. And remember this when they first played? The interesting thing now is the fact that Pierce […]

Comments from the Other Side - Nets 10/15

Well, the first game against Paul Pierce as a Net is in the books.  It was hard to watch him play on the other side, so I'm sure it was hard for him to play against his former team as well.  Nets fans were fairly civil towards the Celtics and their former players on the Celtics.  They still hate Courtney Lee, however.  I agree with them on one thing, though, that delay of...


Garnett believes LeBron has gotten in between ‘Celtics business’ with him and Allen and needs to mind his own. It appears the Celtics-Heat rivalry has commuted to Brooklyn. After LEBRON JAMES commented on what he believes was the hypocrisy of PAUL PIERCE and KEVIN GARNETT in their treatment of RAY ALLEN in the aftermath of Allen leaving Boston (feeling Allen was owed an apology...

Nets Get Decisive Win Over Heat, But Bigger Story Lies in Intensified Rivalry

The Brooklyn Nets defeated the Miami Heat at home Thursday night – a runaway 86-62 contest – in a teaser sneak peek preseason affair where the starters didn’t play a whole lot, and there wasn’t that typical regular season feeling. Jason Kidd got his jersey retired in a pre-game ceremony, but there was plenty other things to talk about and ponder leading up to the game, and...
