Celtics owner Wyc Grousbeck appeared on CNBC this morning to talk business and basketball. His most interesting comment was about Kevin Garnett:
Announcer guy: There’s got to be a lot of stories about Garnett, his passion and his emotion. What’s your favorite Garnett story?
Wyc: The funny thing about KG is that there’s really no story because there’s a 24/7, a continuous loop. You couldn’t even break it up into stories. You’ll be on the team plane at 3 or 4 in the morning and you’ll hear this noise, nonstop talking and it’s KG, from the moment you take off to the moment you land. Whatever hour of the day, he’s talking to rookies, he’s telling stories, he’s just nonstop. Tere’s some sort of nuclear reactor inside him that never quits.
Nuclear reactor sums up KG’s personality, doesn’t it?
I hope you have better luck than I had with the video player. I was stuck in buffering purgatory after the three minute mark. Then again, it probably saved me from watching any more awkward basketball commentary from business geeks.
