Stephen Jackson on Paul Pierce’s Trash Talk

As Jackson made it perfectly clear to the assembled press following the game last night, he wasn’t particularly thrilled with Pierce’s chirping: “Following Wednesday night’s blowout 104-80 win by the Celtics, Jackson took issue with trash-talking by the Celtics and Pierce in particular. ‘It turned disrespectful when certain things were said,’ Jackson said. ‘You can be emotional in the game and you talk to your teammates and do all that but when you get personal and direct certain things to people as far as their manhood, that’s when the problems come up. And I guarantee you that if I wasn’t in this gym, that wouldn’t have been said to me.’ Pierce and Jackson got into a verbal battle and were each called for technical fouls with 7:31 remaining in the third quarter as Jackson was preparing to shoot free throws.”

    I cannot stand Paul Pierce and it’s for reasons like this. Where was his trash talking a few years ago when “SuperStar” Paul carried his team to an amazing 24-58 record and finished last in a weak division?

  • http://Slamonline.com Mvp23100

    Jacksons a real street dude pierce better calm his sloppy ass down him and kg talk a whole lot but will never really fight

  • Marty McFly

    NBA where trash talk happens

  • nyc ball

    MVP23100 Please man…real street dude uh? What’s he gonna do shoot him. Stop playing yourself b. How many fights you see in the NBA where real dukin goes down. Plus how many you see where players meet outside somewhere and duke it out based on something that happened on the court. Snap out your fantasy.

  • riggs

    yeah cause stephen jackson is the epitome of anti-trash talking, give me a effin break.

  • http://www.slamonline.com/ niQ

    Good call MooButter.

  • http://Www.lkz.ch Darksaber

    Truth better not go clubbing in the same area as WHOOO!!! in the near future. You know, cause of the guns going off in parking lots etc.

  • ab_40

    moo if and when you can back it up you can talk trash. that’s the rule when you lose you just don’t talk shit because that’s weak. just don’t involve family. that will get you F’d up. the celts needed that new jersey loss. I hope they’ve finaly woken up

  • http://slamonline.com YKnot

    It’s all part of Ubutu. Pierce, KG, and Rondo all have major attitude. That’s why adding Sheed was a no brainer.

  • NJ4Life

    Jax is gonna stab Truth in the face if he’s not careful.

  • http://www.slamonline.com Eboy

    Paul either had a moment of “I’m an idiot bravado” or lost his fuc*ing mind, ’cause if Whooo lost his mind for a minute like he did in Detroit and wanted to beat the pudge off of PP, who was Paul going to look for help from? KG? Yeah, right (see Anthony Peeler) Sheed? Soft as butter. Perk? Maybe, but he couldn’t catch Stephen in a rope a dope type way. The Celts most gangsta player right now is Lil Nate, so there you go. The Truth should glue his trap closed.

  • neaorin

    You know your best player is a jerk when the best thing people can come up with to defend him is “yeah well, the other guy is a trash talking mofo too!”

  • Needsahcut

    So are we saying its a bad thing that he only talks trash when his championship winnning team is up by 20 at home?

  • Elias

    I hate Paul Pierce. He’s a f**king fa**ot, a sellout(LOL) Celtic from LA. Jax should beat him up. Didn’t Paul Pierce say something like he’s a better shooter than Ray Allen when he won the 3point contest and I’ve heard that he has said that he’s the best player in the NBA. If that’s true he REALLY REALLY needs to shut up.

  • http://slamonline.com CB 34

    Paul is an idiot. Stephen should have knocked his a$$ out. Perk and jax would have been a good fight. Glen and jax would have been good too.

  • T-Money

    The Celtics are a bunch of frontrunners. Perks, Rondo, Allen, KG, Sheed, Pierce. All of them. You don’t hear a thing from them when they’re down 10 or if someone pushes back.

  • letsmotor

    t-money: maybe we don’t hear a thing from them because we’re not on the court. at least i’m not. are you? what makes you the expert?

    also, pretty sure ray never talks trash. ever.

  • letsmotor

    also, jax complaining about trash talk is almost like artest complaining about physical play. give me a break. paul had 27, jax had 8. i like jax, and if paul’s trash talk really went too far like he says it did, i can understand him being annoyed, but if he’s annoyed, he’s gotta take it to paul on the court, not whine to the media.

  • rainman10

    Ya Stephen Jackson is so tuff. Awesome. He lost the game.

  • http://www.slamonline.com MooButter

    You’re right letsmotor. Ray’s all class.


  • riggs

    loving all the celtics hate, funny how it comes out now and not their championship year. hilarious.

  • letsmotor

    MooButter: I’m not saying Ray’s perfect. I mean, playing a physical game and competing intensely at a very high level, almost everyone’s gonna get frustrated once in a while and shove or throw an elbow (not so sure that Ray was actually aiming for the groin, though). i mean, no question that ray was wrong there and he deserved the suspension he got, but he is absolutely one of the league’s classiest players.

  • Sparker

    isn’t this the guy who had to pull a piece to defend himself against a one-armed midget?

  • Sparty’s Law

    This is why I don’t like Pierce or the attitude of that entire celtics team. We’ll see how much talking he does from the golf course after they get knocked out of the playoffs.

  • roman

    C’s win one game and now he’s talkin trash.

  • Lloyd

    Paul Pierce is soft. Everyone enjoyed that first season with the big three when they took a crap team and went to the championships and took it all the way. That gets tired really easily.

    KG is old as hell now and he’s all talk and cheap shots. Pierce can’t talk crap and back it up. He can only talk when they’re pummeling an opponent. Ray’s the only classy dude on the team. Seems like the rest of the team just needs to grow up.

    Stephen Jackson is a hypocrite.

  • Tee

    People forget that Jack will actually fight. Ask them Detroit fans. They know about it. Also, Jack pulled the gun at the club because mahfukkas were trying to run him over with their car.

  • LA Huey

    Love how so many complain about how they miss the way the game was in 80s and early 90s and then complain about players who talk trash…that being said, considering their respective experiences at night clubs, Pierce may want to tread carefully with SJax.

  • Rob

    He’s a pierce of sh*t. I wish Steph would punch his retarded mouse face next time, you know? put him on a wheelchair is not that hard.

  • fizzrocket

    It’s pathetic how anytime someone trash-talks nowadays, they’re immediately labeled as Satan. Then add in the fact that it’s Paul Pierce and the hate factor goes up x1000. Y’all should’ve watched ball in the 90′s.

  • http://www.hibachi20.blogspot.com BETCATS

    Im going to be honest here; everybody on our team including Stephen is so frustrated right now that an explosion could happen. We are losing and guys are reaching the boiling point, and if Pierce doesnt want to take another wheelchair ride (like he did in the ’08 finals) but this time actually need it i suggest he shuts up and just plays the darn game. Its not like they didnt blow us out or anything…

  • http://www.hibachi20.blogspot.com BETCATS

    And im not threatening Paul or saying its guarnteed anything will happen to him. This is just one of those cases where “its a recession, dont stand in line for your unemployment check wearing a rolex”.

  • Heals

    Funny how the Bobcats were running their mouths after beating the C’s last year. Gotta love that good ol’ C’s hate, it’s nice and thick in here today. BETCATS, wow that’s rich…

  • Josh

    I think Paul should have a little street cred. Remember dude was stabbed in the face a few years back he was stabbed in the face before the season and still played all 82 games. I do cringe watching his weird but effective herky jerky game though.

  • http://slamonline.com John D

    Some of you guys are so remedial.

  • Shem

    The entire Celtics team have that “trashhh talk” to them. Paul Pierce is a flat out B!TCH. Jackson’s right, he’d kick Paully’s ass if it wasn’t on the court. In the cats’ game KG blocked Ratliff and he was yelling and smacking his chest and Ratliff went up to him and said.. ” what are you doing?” He gave him the your an idiot look and turned around.

  • Toni Kukoc

    PP is a punk azz bich, and only gettign worse with age and each win he gets cause of Rondo/KG/RayRay

  • RunningBrave

    Aww.. Poor little Stephen Jackson got his feelings hurt.

  • Teddy-the-Bear

    I want to see the Bobcats vs. the Celtics in the playoffs… Unless the Hawks get to Boston first! Fun fun fun. People need to be talking more trash to each other. F*ck a technical!

  • http://www.twitter.com/JoshElam JE

    I’ve never seen so much Paul Pierce hate. I thought people generally liked him.

  • NYC Ball’s Mom

    Paul Pierce [my nuts] is a girl. Did anyone catch him saying that he’s one of the greatest 3-point shooters of all time after his little all-star win? Jackson ain’t no street dude? Everyone forget what happened at The Palace? If that ain’t some gangsta sh!t I don’t know what is. Paul Pierce for Dildo-of-the-Year.

  • http://Www.lkz.ch Darksaber

    JE: wrong. Check the Slamonline top 50 of ’08. Truth be getting that HATERADE in buckets!

  • Teddy-the-Bear

    F*ck a technical!

  • http://fdjsklf.com Jukai

    Hahaha, great quote BETCATS

  • Mo

    All of you people are idiots and obviously have no type of game. Talking sh!t is part of the game. I love Pierce and Stephen Jackson, and they both talk smack. Everyone in the NBA does. There are lines you don’t cross but as far as telling someone they can’t guard you and then proving it is part of the game. I can tell just from y’alls basketball IQ, I would drop about forty and 15 while I am talking smack to you the whole time. Holla

  • http://www.gmail.com rushmelo

    30-7-4 for life!!!M.V.P

  • Kadavour

    if you’re on ur turf, you can bust ass and talk sh!t. if not, you KNOW you can’t do both in the same game. If you’re going to bust ass, be humble. If you’re going to talk sh!t, take an L. simple. Pierce was at home, he’s allowed.

  • NaNA

    Man the celtics are so garbage! they ain’t going to make it out the first round. they don’t want to accept the fact that their washed up! ain’t nobody scared of the celtics. Paul Pierce is so wack with his sloppy @ss. Ray Allen couldn’t guard my grandmother in her coffin and KG is truely a has been. Rajon Rondo only looks good because of his team mates! put him in New Jersey and lets see if he makes the ALL Star team…NOT!!!! Doc is still living in a fantasy adding Old washed up Rasheed Wallace and old @ss Michael Finley! f**k Boston wack washed up dreamers!!! Laker Love all day, can’t stop won’t stop baby!!! California Love………….

  • celtics

    so many boston and pierce hater out there … but the fact of the matter is this, is that Pierce was one of the league best player and he’s a lot more better than jackson, and boston was one of the best franchise history …

    @1st post – Pierce lead boston to ECF …. what did bobcats accomplished? … by Jordan owning the bobcats? … that’s terrible, bobcats s*cks ….

  • http://ilovethenba@aol.com John

    Hey, you guys that is pretty stupid. You got to thank about Pierce is one of the best players i the NBA, you should know that if you do something to him he is going to do something back.then a another thang Pierce can carry the Celtics. What can Stephen jackson do.
