Paul Pierce’s reaction to J.R. Smith: “Who?”

Which seems more staged right now, the Knicks/Nets rivalry or the show “Amish Mafia?”

I can’t tell, but I can turn off the Amish Mafia show (and have). However, as an NBA news blog I have a level of obligation to bring you this.

Remember J.R. Smith fired some shots across the bow of the Knicks and Paul Pierce and the Knicks, plus he said the Knicks were title contenders. What is Pierce’s reaction?

The two teams do not even play until December. I’m really over the silly back-and-forth, maybe it plays better in New York but from a distance it plays out like Amish Mafia. The only way this thing gets real is if they meet in the playoffs. (And i really want them to meet in the first round of the playoffs.)

The only sensible person in this whole thing has been Bernard King.
