A couple of quotes after last night’s game have slipped under the radar. Both are awesome explanations about why the Celtics looked so good against Brooklyn last night… and both are so perfectly indicative of the person who uttered them. I could not tell you who said them, and there’s no doubt in my mind you could figure out who they came from.
But I’ll tell you anyway. First up, Kevin Garnett.
“Philly, that was embarrassing. We don’t play basketball like that. That was embarrassing to us. We have a culture in here that we adopt. When you put this jersey on, it comes with responsibilities, whether it’s preseason or (expletive) around, chillin’, one-on-one, 21, whatever it is. It comes with responsibility. We don’t take that lightly around here. We felt like in Philly we took a step back. We feel like we got back on that horse and got better.”
Typical KG. Intense… vulgar… proud… inspirational. Makes you want to put a uniform on yourself and go bark at some tiny European point guard.
Next up, Rajon Rondo, talking about the Barclays Center:
“It’s got low-lighting like a theater or opera, so we’ve got to put on a show every time.”
So purely Rondo. Cocky… you’re not sure if he’s screwing with you because part of you thinks that might actually be part of his motivation.
There you go. Two quotes, great in their own way. I can’t pick out which one is better… but I don’t really care.
