The Brooklyn Nets held a press conference at the Barclays Center Thursday afternoon to introduce three players acquired in a trade with the Boston Celtics, Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce, and Jason Terry, and it didn’t take long for them to declare their true intentions in Brooklyn.

“We’re championship driven,” Pierce proclaimed. “We’ve made a lot of money in our careers. won a lot of awards. At this point right now, we’re all about winning a championship. We want to be one of those teams that can compete for the championship.”

I’ll have a lot more from the press conference later on (including plenty of photos and video). For now check out the article by the Brooklyn Eagle’s own John Torenli on what KG, Pierce, and Terry say is the key to champion success — sacrifice.
