Since joining the Nets, Paul Pierce has enjoyed revving up the rivalry between Brooklyn and New York. “It’s time for the Brooklyn Nets to start running this city,” Pierce said before going telling Complex Magazine that he hates the Knicks “with a passion.” Raymond Felton answered Pierce’s “junk” talk, says Knicks are “still New York’s team,” even if Brooklyn ends season with a better record…
According to Stefan Bondy of the NY Daily News:
Knicks point guard Raymond Felton spit back in an interview with Slam Magazine.
“Especially with Paul Pierce talking all this junk, each and every week, saying something on some show, some radio show or whatever, it’s just boosting the rivalry, without a doubt,” Felton said. “Like I say to people all the time, I don’t care what Brooklyn do, I don’t care if they have a better record than we do this year, we still got ‘New York’ on our chest. We’re still New York’s team, regardless of what Brooklyn do. It just is what it is.”
