Paul Pierce spent one season playing for the Brooklyn Nets after a long career in Boston.

Expectations were high, as the team also consisted of former all-stars like Kevin Garnett, Deron Williams & Joe Johnson.

Pierce spoke to Ryan Hollins & Brendan Haywood about what went wrong in his short time with the Nets.

(Via The Opinionated 7-Footers):

“I thought we’d be a lot better. I thought Deron Williams was ready to be an MVP type of player,” said Pierce.

“He was the one that had to take us to that next step because by that point, me & Ticket, we were like the help. We were the leaders, but needed the young guys.”
