Trash talk is common in the NBA and Donovan Mitchell made some remarks about the fouls James Harden was receiving. Paul Pierce knows you have to earn respect from your peers and he thinks Mitchell should take a seat.
“He’s a rookie, and Donovan Mitchell you will have your day one day.”
“You have got to take your lumps young fella.”
Pierce was the king of trash talk, but as a rookie, it could be hard to garner respect from your elders.
