About a year ago at this time, the Celtics were preparing to open their season with a mysterious version of Kevin Garnett. They signed Rasheed Wallace to back him up and fill in as a spot-starter here and there. One of the biggest problems however, was when Glen Davis went all MMA on his buddy and broke his thumb. No doubt that didn't help in bringing KG along slowly and creating an avalanche of big man problems.
This time around though, he's looked fantastic in the pre-season games and is ready to play a big role off the bench. Perhaps his greater skill is that of an entertainer. During last night's open practice for season ticket holders, Big Baby delivered quite the amusing introductions of the players, coaching staff and trainers. Watch the video below, it's well worth the time:
