Felton: Nets ‘Will Never Take Over’ New York

Raymond Felton fired back at Paul Pierce’s comments that the Brooklyn Nets are poised to supplant the Knicks in the standings and in the city of New York.

“They will never take over the city. Because we’ve got ‘New York’ on our chest,” Felton said Sunday. “They’ve got ‘Brooklyn’ on their chest, and we’ve got ‘New York.’ They’ll never take over the city.

“[Pierce] saying that is just him talking. At the end of the day, it’s all about rivalries. We understand that — he knows that, I know that. He’s just trying to fuel it.”

Pierce has said his hatred for the Knicks has grown since leaving the Boston Celtics and coming to the Nets.
