MWP: Nets have NBA's best trash talker and it's not KG!

Gary A. Vasquez-US PRESSWIRE

Steve Serby in the Post interviews Metta World Peace about the upcoming season, his tortured past and the city game, including its big stage iteration: the Nets - Knicks rivalry.

MWP, who dismissed Paul Pierce's comments this summer by claiming he doesn't even know "who's on their roster," takes the high road this time.

Q: What do you think about the Brooklyn Nets talking about taking over this town?

A: They should be able to talk and say exactly what they want to say.

Q: Do you think this still is a Knicks town?

A: That’s up to the fans. My job is to just to go out there and play.

But the 33-year-old small forward does talk about Pierce and in surprising ways.  He says Pierce leads the league in a certain category.

Q: Who’s the best trash talker in the NBA?

A: Paul Pierce is the only one left.

Q: Is he good?

A: He’s the best.

Q: What about Kevin Garnett?

A: Paul Pierce is the best.

MWP says he loves playing against Pierce, describing their matchups this way, "It was wars. It was competitive. I love Paul. I love playing against Paul. He’s just so tough, he’s just so tough."
