Paul Pierce John Wall Doesn't Hate Bradley Beal ... Feud Reports Are B.S.

10/8/2016 12:35 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

There's no inner war between Washington Wizards teammates Bradley Beal and John Wall -- so says NBA superstar Paul Pierce, who says reports of a feud between the two are straight-up wrong. 

Wall has said in the past that "we have a tendency to dislike each other on the court" -- but said their issues are resolvable as long as they come together and talk things out. 

But Pierce -- who played for the Wizards during the '14/'15 season -- says straight-up, "They definitely get along. I was there."

Anything to the contrary, according to Pierce -- "False reports."

By the way, Pierce was leaving new L.A. hot spot, Catch -- and it's clear he's a V.I.P. because during the clip, the owner, Mark Birnbaum, promised to put his picture on the wall in the restaurant. 

Nice!

Agent Zero was out in L.A. last night ... when we asked if he would ever consider visiting his x-NBA teammate in prison, where he'll be spend the next 23 years for killing a woman in 2011.

FYI -- the two made headlines together back in 2009 ... when they pulled guns on each other in the Washington Wizards locker room.

But Arenas tells TMZ Sports he's erased Javaris from his memory -- saying there's no chance he'll visit the guy because ... "Why would I need to be reminded of prison for? I've seen 'Locked Up,' it's not a nice place."

We also asked Arenas about his fireworks arrest in 2013 -- and if he still plans to light up the sky on July 4th, 2015 ... despite the fact he's on probation.

Check out his answer ... clearly, Arenas doesn't care that he's still on probation and skating on thin ice.
