Paul Pierce didn’t seem that thrilled to be going to the Nets, but he is warming up to the idea especially when it comes to playing the Knicks. Pierce has never liked the New York Knicks which probably comes with the territory when you’ve spent your entire career with the Boston Celtics.

Per ESPN:

“I think the hate [for the Knicks] has grown a little. Everybody knows how much I disliked the Knicks when I was with the Celtics, but I think it’s grown to another level,” Pierce said on Thursday. “I think it’s time for the Nets to start running this city.”

Pierce later told reporters at a Sprint H-O-R-S-E event in Manhattan: “The only thing that separates the two teams is a bridge. And both of them are in the same division and both of them are considered contenders. You can’t help but say this is probably gonna be the best rivalry in sports next year.” The Nets and Knicks will meet four times in 2013-14. The first game of their regular-season series will be Dec. 5 at Barclays Center.
