Words of Wisdom: Is Paul Pierce Smarter Than The Average Knicks Fan? Heaven Forbid!!

“It’s what you’d expect. They’ve definitely got talent, but you can’t just throw a team together and say ‘go win’ and expect it with no practice time, middle of the season.” — Paul Pierce after winning blood feud against Knicks

“They’re much better. On paper. Eventually they will be on the floor. They’ve got two of the top 10 players . . . in the league on the same team. That makes you a better basketball team.
