Doc says KG is not hurt

Chuck - Red's Army June 4, 2010 Uncategorized 13 Comments on Doc says KG is not hurt

Via Chris Forsberg's Twitter:

Doc on KG: "I just thought he struggled. He had one of those nights. We
all have them. We're just not used to seeing him have them unless
there's something wrong. But he's fine, I can guarantee you that."

Doc on PJax 47-0: "Well, you know, it's like I told our guys, because I
assumed that this would come up. I don't know the record. I said also
the last time we were in The Finals no team had ever come down from 24
in the second half. At some point, it happened. "

Pau Gasol stated the obvious about KG who had no comment about Pau's comment:

Then he said this: “On Kevin’s part, he’s also lost some
explosiveness. He’s more of a jump shooter now.” Gasol went on to say
how Garnett is still a “terrific player, a terrific competitor, and he’s
going to bring everything he’s got. You can count on that.”

Only the first part of the quote was relayed to Garnett who
responded, “I have no comment for his comments.”

Pressed further, Garnett said, “I’m not getting caught up in what
Pau’s talking about. I’m not going to play these games. I’m going to
stick to my guns, continue to make the proper adjustments and move on.
I’m not into this bull [expletive] that’s going on, you know what I
mean? That’s it.”

Give the media credit (or blame), they are trying to stir the pot.

On WEEI, Danny Ainge speculated about Doc's future with the Celtics:

“I think Doc will come back,” Ainge said in an interview on Boston
sports radio station WEEI on Friday afternoon. Rivers, who has one year
remaining on his contract, has acknowledged the rumors but insists he
will not make any decisions about next season until this season is

Should Rivers leave, the hunt for his replacement would include
current assistant Tom Thibodeau, Ainge said.

“[If Rivers leaves] then we’ll put the search out and put Tom at the
head of the class,” Ainge said. “[He is] somebody that we would
consider and interview but we would also look at all the viable
candidates and take our time if [Rivers walked away]. But I don’t
anticipate that happening.”

ESPN Boston – Ainge: I think Doc will come back

Thibs is a front-runner for the head coaching jobs in Chicago and New Orleans.

    Good thing is that hurt or not KG will eat him alive in game too driven by the will to tell the whole world to fuck off

    “So make this about revenge if you’d like, Lakers. The second you do, this thing will start to fall apart. The second you start to make this about anything other than executing the game plan and beating the opponent in front of you, you lose.”

    “For example, Rajon Rondo was asked about the Gasol’s comments, again without context, and he just grinned. “Every man is entitled to this opinion,” Rondo said. “You know, Kevin is fine. It’s just one game. We’ll see in Game 2.”
    Asked how this would affect Garnett, Rondo said, “I just can’t wait. I didn’t know [Gasol] said that, but I’ll be excited to see how it goes in Game 2.”
    I think Game 2 should be quite interesting 🙂

    i guarantee you kg will not score more than about 18 points and grab more than 14 rebounds in a game this series. old kg could have gone for 30 and 20 any night in the playoffs, this kg is timid as sh*t and struggles to grab more than 5 boards a game. his input into these games (besides his excellent help and pick and roll defense) isnt that much more than big baby’s. and thats saying something.
    after doubting kg this entire season i still found myself saying “he’ll come out in the playoffs”. totally hasnt happened. a couple of 15 point games against smaller (and notably bad) defenders means nothing. our other 4 guys need to step up MAJORLY or we will have problems winning a game this series.

  • Typical press to take it out of context to get a reaction. This is his entire comment:
    “So I could say that I’m a more mature player and more effective now than I was before I was athletic, lanky. I had more explosiveness than I have now, but I was weaker, also, and I wasn’t accustomed to the physicality of the league and the amount of games that are played. But little by little I’ve gotten better, and I’ve grown to be the player that I am today.
    And also on Kevin’s part he’s also lost some explosiveness. […] Time passes and we all suffer it one way or another, but he’s still a terrific player, a terrific competitor, and he’s going to bring everything he’s got. You can count on that.”


    Well thibs ain’t going to the Hornets….;_ylt=Aj8b7Fgjw3fiBbBk0f698M.8vLYF?slug=ys-williamshornets060410
    Wonder why they pulled the offer??


    By a couple of 15 pt games are u referring to his 18 ppg for the Cavs series?
    Did that mean nothing? I thought it mighta helped the team a bit but I bow to your superior knowledge….
    By the way – no player in modern times goes off for 30-20 any night they want, otherwise don’t u think they’d do it? Every night to help their team??


    If there was ever a time for a McHale-Rambis type moment, Game 2 would be it.

    Gasol can f*ck himself. KG is bringing it, the whole squad is bringing it for game 2.

  • His performance against cleveland was the best he played all year, and he hasnt played that way sense….cleveland simply made it too easy for him, they played him like he was done

  • Eh, Gasol said nothing that wasnt 100% accurate…his comments were more accuraste then most people who get paid to talk

  • Nora

    They may have been accurate but I would make sure not to say anything that might make an opponant pissed off. ‘Don’t wake the sleeping dog’ or whatever the saying is. I think Gasol did that.

  • another great posr. thank you.
