    ''Even Tayshaun Prince. I don't think he plays great defense. He has two of the best shot blockers in the game [Ben Wallace and Rasheed Wallace]. If a guy blows by you, then the shot blockers block the shot and you call that great defense."

    Pierce takes some offense to lack of recognition

    Good set up

    I wonder how many Pierce shots Tay will block this Tuesday...

    I dunno, but I'm hoping at least one bounces off of Pierce's face. :evil:

    has a point

    He is wrong in his assessment of Tay, but he does have a point about a feedback effect with shotblockers. It is nice when Ben and Sheed have your back. Tay probably wouldn't be as recognized as a great defender if he were on a team like the Celtics.

    One thing I know though, is that Tay would not call someone else in the NBA a poor defender to prop up his ego.

    Trying for a trade

    It sounds to me if Pierce is just starting to audition for a trade. He realizes he's on a sinking ship without a life boat or paddle. He starts spouting off, Boston tires of it, and he gets dealt. Hopefully, they can work out a deal with Toronto or Atlanta. Or the Knicks. Starbury for Pierce.

    I think Paul Pierce needs to watch some video tape of the last 3 seasons. He needs to focus on these match ups Tayshaun's defense on TMac, Kobe and Reggie Miller and then take his foot out of his mouth.:doh:

    When the teams meet, Pierce also may be pulling Tay's foot out of his (expletive) after Tay kicks it for him. :nod:

    If I were a coach I'd be pissed if one of my players starts spouting off about other players or teams in the media.

    You see it so often in sports where a guy will start trash talking, the other team uses it as extra motivation, and more often than not, the guy that did the talking has a poor game.

    The best example I can think of was Chad Johnson of the Bengals sending Pepto Bismol to the other teams' DB's because he was going to make them sick. Johnson ended up having a horrible game.

    Just shut up and play. Don't celebrate excessively when you're up, don't be a whinner when you're down and NEVER give the other team any extra motivation by running your mouth in the media.

    Popvich's Spurs are a great example of a team that gives its opponents loads of respect and doesn't say stupid crap. I have total respect for those guys.

    Typical Pierce

    Very talented player, but like his old running mate in Boston, 'Toine, more interested in individual accolades than his team's success.

    He has more complimentary things to say in today's Boston Herald ... but check out the little comment at the end:

    Much better, but I still hope Prince embarasses him. :nod:
