Lee also knows there will be some unpleasantries when Pierce steps on the court with his new Nets teammate, Kevin Garnett.
During a spring game in 2011 at Madison Square Garden, Garnett, then on the Celtics, had some words for Lee that he’ll always remember. In fact, Lee said they were worse than what longtime nemesis Reggie Miller once said to him during a game while they were trash talking from the film director’s courtside seat.
“Garnett needs to calm the [expletive] down,” Lee told ESPNNewYork.com in Oct. 2011. “There’s no reason he should be cursing at me the way he did the last game. So you can put that in the article. It was disrespectful and I would never do nothing like that to him.”
Lee said he and Garnett still don’t talk to this day.
“Him? We don’t speak,” he said. “We’re cordial when we see each other, but I’m not calling him up. I don’t have his number to call him up, and he ain’t calling me up either.
Spike fires back at PP, and drops a little science about KG? Love this talk. Am I the only one who believes that KG is not liked by anyone associated with the NBA? He has a history of being the greatest trash talker in the NBA since Larry Bird. He says inappropriate, vulgar things to people and players during games, and then blames it on the HEAT of the battle.
There is no doubt that KG is a hall of fame player, who, in his prime was the most focused player on the court, but as of today, KG has little left in his tank as he rides out his contract. The only problem is that he is riding out that contract as a member of the Brooklyn Nets, a team that is New York’s direct despised rival.
I expect this season series to be a battle for both teams since the days the Knicks battled the Bulls and the Heat. It could get ugly ladies and gentleman, it could get ugly.
