NEW YORK -- Paul Pierce thinks New York City eventually will be a Brooklyn Nets town.

New York Knicks point guard Raymond Felton disagrees -- strongly.

"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."
