There are certain things you just don’t do. And laughing in KG’s face is one of them.
Maybe LeBron feels like he can get away with it. The Celtics obviously need KG, so he can’t do anything there that could get him tossed or suspended. The referees were obviously quick with the technical fouls last night, so who knows how much of a reaction KG could have gotten away with. Hell, the tech whistles were so quick, I’m almost surprised LeBron didn’t get one there.
Still, KG got punked there. And while I don’t know KG, I’m pretty sure he doesn’t appreciate getting punked.. as this photo may indicate
KG’s response, when asked if LeBron was showboating. “A little bit”.. followed by
““A little bit. Little bit. It’s all good. They’re home, they’re comfortable. And when you’re comfortable, you do things like that. We’ve got to make sure we take them out of their comfort zone and fight a little harder.”
I don’t know. Calm KG scares me more than pissed off KG. And when Rondo adds “you know, they have to hit the deck, too”… I’m guessing the Celtics are going to come out with a little more energy in Game 2.
