“I want to see if I can bring them back”

Just remember, the problem is with KG’s shin

The Celtics return to action tonight in their first preseason game of the year.  And EVERYONE is going to be watching Kevin Garnett out there.  Just remember when you're watching… if he's limping, it's because he's got shin splints and some mysterious calf problem now. “He’s been good, (but yesterday) I thought they bothered him [...]

“I think Rajon Rondo will be a lifetime Celtic”

“I think Rajon Rondo will be a lifetime Celtic”

Doc Rivers was on WEEI earlier this morning…and the thing that seems to be resonating with people is what he said about Rajon Rondo. I think Rajon Rondo will be a lifetime Celtic. I really do.
