Paul Pierce compares Kevin Durant joining Warriors to a kid becoming friends with his bullies to avoid getting beat up. https://t.co/00U8c5sTW0

During a Tuesday afternoon segment on ESPN's The Jump, retired NBA veteran Paul Pierce took a shot at Kevin Durant's decision to join the Golden State Warriors in free agency last summer.

"I'm just not built like that," the Truth said. "I'm not a guy who goes into the neighborhood, gets beat up by the bully's gang and then now I want to join your gang."

Rachel Nichols, Amin Elhassan and Scottie Pippen laughed at the analogy.

Pierce was likely referring to the Warriors' elimination of Durant's Oklahoma City Thunder in last year's Western Conference Finals. OKC was up 3-1 before Golden State stormed back and advanced to the NBA Finals.
