KG knows what happened.
We know what happened too. We know because we all have eyes.
But we don't know why.
cue the smug: "cuz he's old" comments
But we don't know if its age, or injury or Pau Gasol just being damn good (there, I said it… now let us never speak of it again).
I do know everyone is talking about it. And I do know that no one, despite their confident tone, has the answer except for ol' #5 over there. Maybe Doc. But mostly KG. And he knows he needs to be better.
“I’m better than I was tonight,’’ Garnett said afterward in the glum
visitors locker room. “I played like horse[expletive].’’
Yes you did KG. There's really no other way to say it except to remove the brackets. You played like horse shit.
But that's ok. Sometimes guys play like horse shit. Good players even.
But I'm not going to sit here and pretend to know what's happening inside his head… or his knees. We can go ahead and speculate. But KG knows he needs to be better. And I assume he will be.
The KG story line will get played out in… oh… 5 minutes ago. But it's a story line so we're gonna talk about it.
But don't dive too deep into it. Save your mental energy for other things.
Because KG knows.
