JR Smith Calls Paul Pierce a ‘Bitter Person’

JR Smith wasn’t pleased about Paul Pierce’s recent comment that the Nets are going “to start running this city.” In response, the Knicks guard called Pierce a bitter person and said, “He doesn’t really know what New York is all about.” Via ESPNNewYork.com: “Paul Pierce has sparked a war of words between the Brooklyn Nets and the New York Knicks. Earlier this month, Pierce said that he believed that the Nets would eventually own New York. ‘I just look at him as a bitter person just getting out of Boston. He doesn’t really know what New York is all about. He’s been playing in Boston his whole career,’ Smith told ESPN New York on Saturday. Smith, speaking without anger in his voice, added: ‘He just knows, just know that his words have consequences and he’s going to have to pay for them.’”

    Pierce won me in the 2008 championship run.
    JR got shot.
    that’s it.

    Exactly what is JR Smith going to do besides hope that more than half of his shots go in? Not one Knick has anything to say to Paul Pierce who’s a Finals MVP and NBA Champion.

    Celtic fan here. JR does not impress me, but I think PP comments are silly too, though.

    Idr the last time the Knicks even won a championship they supposedly are the team under the bright lights but can’t win a ring, I hate pierce but respect him cause hes a former champ
