Wizards star Paul Pierce gives tongue-lashing to Nets


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/14/2015) Future Hall of Fame forward Paul Pierce spoke candidly Tuesday about his disastrous season with the Nets a year ago, calling it "horrible." He verbally trashed Brooklyn point guard Deron Williams in the process.

"It was just the guys' attitudes there," Pierce told ESPN. "It wasn't like we were surrounded by a bunch of young guys. They were vets who didn't want to play and didn't want to practice. I was looking around saying, 'what's this?' Kevin (Garnett) and I had to pick them up every day in practice.

"If me and Kevin weren't there, that team would have folded up. That team would have packed it in. We kept them going each and every day.

"Before I got there, I looked at Deron as an MVP candidate. But I felt once we got there, that's not what he wanted to be. He just didn't want that. ... I think a lot of the pressure got to him sometimes. This was his first time in the national spotlight. The media in Utah is not the same as the media in New York."

Pierce added that he is "much happier" with the Wizards, who are heading to the playoffs. Meanwhile, Williams and the Nets have lost their last two games and are on the brink of elimination.
