"You know what's crazy man..? This training camp has some of the same energy as '07'"-Kevin Garnett
That was The Big Ticket speaking on this year's Celtics training camp during last night's premiere of "Unscripted".
Unscripted is a new show from NBAtv that follows NBA squads behind the scenes. Last night's inaugural edition, which I really enjoyed, focused on the Boston Celtics and Miami Heat. It chronicled each team's summer; including Boston's heartbreaking loss in the Finals, and the 3-ring circus that Miami has become since the signing of Lebron James. (and that other guy)
The real reason I posted this clip though is for the scene that takes place at 4:40. The narrator speaks about the Game 7 loss to the Lakers, and then Allen, Pierce and Garnett go into just what that loss really meant-and how much of a motivator it has become.
Look closely at the Big 3 during that moment-you can see it in their eyes. They are all still very hungry. That one shot of the three of them together, and the look in their eyes speaks volumes. They know that the door is still open. Ever so slightly maybe, but open none the less. Doc, the Big 3, and the new allies that have joined them this offseason know that together, they can win another title. And tomorrow night, the journey begins…
