During the Heat vs Nets preseason game Paul Pierce sent LeBron James a message that should hold some weight for months to come. Unless you’ve been under a rock somewhere, the Miami Heat and Boston Celtics hated each other.   That hatred has been transferred to the Brooklyn Nets after acquiring Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett from the Celtics. Throw in the back and forth between both teams stars over the past few days, and you were bound to have some sparks fly during the teams next possible matchup. Those sparks flew a little bit when James got a rebound for the Heat and started barreling towards the rim like a locomotive. Rather than let LeBron deliver the blow, or even score, Pierce hit LeBron with a hard foul that Rick Mahorn would be proud of. I expect these two teams to matchup at least 11 times thi...

If LeBron James wants to rope himself into the back-and-forth (or, for that matter, the silent treatment) that has accompanied the breakup of the Celtics’ Big Three, that’s just fine — Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce will take shots at him as well.

NBA Players say Jordan & Kobe over LeBron for a Last Second Shot

Perception, is an extremely powerful thing. There are some people who say it comes very close to reality in terms of importance, but one thing I will say is what people think is true is generally what they choose to believe. Even if it may not necessarily be the case. That’s kind of how I feel about the anonymous player poll done by ESPN The Magazine, in which they asked current...
