Kevin Garnett: “Not every city is like this”

John - Red's Army (@RedsArmy_John) April 17, 2013 Celtics News 3 Comments on Kevin Garnett: “Not every city is like this”

In a recent sit down interview with Greg Dickerson, Kevin Garnett discussed “the chant” from Game 6.  Part of what he said is in the headline.  Here’s more:

“It’s like someone told me at the gas station, ‘I’m a Celtic too.  This is my team, I was raised with this team,’ that’s pretty much what it is.  People feel like they are Celtics.  When you hurt, they hurt.  When you scream, you’re screaming for them.  When you’re applauding, and rooting, and going, they feel like they are empowering you.  I get it, I get it… it took me a minute, but I get it.”

After recent events, this comment made weeks ago is even more poignant.

The regular season ends tonight.  The Celtics will play 81 games instead of 82… the first time that will have ever happened in the NBA.  Then the focus turns to the New York Knicks.  And it’s a New York Knicks team dealing with the devastating, sudden retirement of one of its players.


Seriously, though.  Enjoy the retirement, Sheed.  If I ever see you, I’ll get us a round of Bud Lights.

    if only we had acquired him sooner. KG was born to be a Celtic

  • The Knicks got off too easy…Sheed only screwed them out of $1.3M, as opposed to the $12M that A-hole stole from the Celts!

    Looks like it will remain a mystery who put out the cigarette on top of Wallace`s head, leaving behind a white patch.
