Paul Pierce says "no hard feelings" about Nets departure

Paul Pierce spoke to reporters about his departure --and Jason Kidd's-- before the Knicks-Wizards game Tuesday and said he understood the Nets decision not to bring him back was "business" but that he was shocked by Kidd's decision to leave. Pierce did not directly state that the Nets had given up on their championship aspirations, but by describing the Nets rationale of dumping him as "business," he implied it.  Nets officials have called the move a basketball decision, saying Pierce was no longer needed upfront with the return of Brook Lopez and Kevin Garnett to good health ... and that...

Pierce: Kidd's exit 'like a domino from there'

NEW YORK –- Paul Pierce is surprised and disappointed that the trio of Jason Kidd, Kevin Garnett and himself lasted just one season together in Brooklyn. In his first trip back to New York after the Nets opted not to re-sign him in free agency, Pierce said Kidd’s split with Brooklyn started what felt like a chain reaction and shift in direction for the franchise. Just a year ago, the Nets were talking championship with Kidd, Pierce and Garnett aboard.

Pierce talks about departure from Brooklyn

NEW YORK — Just a year ago, thanks to three new faces, the Nets were one of the most-talked-about teams in the world of basketball. Together, coach Jason Kidd and veterans Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett were supposed to lead …

Three isn't a magic number: On the Wizards' struggles from downtown

The Wizards' offense has been among the lowest scoring in the preseason thanks mostly to awful three-point shooting. Is there any hope things get turned around before the team's shooters get healthy? The Wizards' reputation for offensive prowess exceeded the team's actual performance last year. Pulled down by a poor bench and an over-reliance on mid range shots, the Wizards finished the season 16th in the NBA in offensive rating. Significant improvement was expected given projected improvements from their young players, a deeper bench and the addition of the versatile Paul Pierce. But those...

Without Paul Pierce, Nets counting on Mirza Teletovic

Nobody can do more to erase the memory of Paul Pierce in a Brooklyn uniform than Mirza Teletovic. Whether or not GM Billy King will ever admit it publicly, dealing three first-round draft picks for Pierce and Kevin Garnett in 2013 was a failure.

Wizards vs. Hornets final score: 3 things we learned after Washington's 96-86 loss

The Washington Wizards fell apart in the fourth quarter of their 96-86 loss to the Charlotte Hornets, but at least Paul Pierce appears to be OK. A putrid second half doomed the Washington Wizards as they lost at home to the Charlotte Hornets, 96-86 Washington came out like gangbusters, shooting 54 percent in the first half and jumping out to a 14 point lead, but largely fell apart after Paul Pierce left the game with a knee injury. Even though Pierce would return in the third quarter before leaving for good, the Wizards never re-established their groove and couldn't buy a bucket during the...

Wiz Insider: Paul Pierce provides another Wizards injury scare in loss to Hornets

At this point, it seems the Washington Wizards cannot survive a preseason game without an injury scare. Last Friday, starting shooting guard Bradley Beal broke his wrist. On Wednesday, Beal’s replacement, Glen Rice Jr., sprained his ankle. And tonight, starting small forward Paul Pierce’s right knee collided with a Charlotte Hornets defender, and Pierce limped off the floor with 5.4 seconds in the first half. Read full article >>

Paul Pierce eventually leaves Hornets game after knee injury scare

It didn't look serious, but you never know. Can the Wizards get through one game without an injury scare? I guess not. This time, it's Paul Pierce who went down with what appeared to be a leg or knee injury in the closing seconds of the first half against the Hornets. Michael Kidd-Gilchrist ran into his knee trying to defend a pick and roll and Pierce stayed down for a while before limping to the locker room on his own power with the team's training staff trailing him. Pierce stayed in the game for a period in the third quarter, but later left for good. I don't think this is serious, but...
