Paul Pierce takes another dig at the Nets

Paul Pierce is in rapid fire mode lately. First, he said that Deron Williams and Joe Johnson weren't locker room leaders in Brooklyn. Then, he spent an entire series trolling the Raptors as his Wizards pulled off a four-game sweep in the first round.

The other is in Las Vegas. Usually, the Nets will head to Florida for the first week of July, steering clear of Sin City during the hottest time of the year. This year, that all changes. The Nets will...

It's insurmountably difficult to pick out 10 impactful rookies from the 2014-15 season. Somehow though, we do it every year.
