KG: “The Wings are Coming”

KG: “The Wings are Coming”

The Globe's Frank Dell'Apa has this nugget from today's practice: "He took a lob and dunked it — it was an amazing dunk," Celtics coach Doc Rivers said of Garnett. "Everybody said, 'we haven't seen that.' " Garnett went the distance in an hour-and-a-half practice, during which "we worked them hard," Rivers said. Garnett has [...]

Just remember, the problem is with KG’s shin

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. I think this process he’s gone through is the process all players go through at times. The maturity process [...]

Doc won’t limit starters’ minutes

Doc won’t limit starters’ minutes

Doc Rivers is an NBA coach… a former coach of the year and an NBA champion. I'm a slob who sometimes drinks alone, could stand to lose a few pounds, and uses terms like "we" and "us" when referring to his favorite pro teams. So I get why Doc Rivers doesn't want to listen to [...]

Doc’s starting this crap early

Doc’s starting this crap early

Camp is not even a full week old and Doc Rivers is already forgetting to limit KG's minutes. "Today was a day I probably should have taken him out more." That would explain the video we just saw of KG moving around stiffly.  Doc said he was starting and stopping the guys a lot and [...]

KG: “I thought Doc was trying to kill me”

KG: “I thought Doc was trying to kill me”

So tweet the C's KG practiced for the first 75 percent of today's session according to Doc. Maybe we can all stop holding our breath a little when it comes to KG.  We're starting to get the bigger picture and it's not that scary.  After practice, KG said he felt OK. "It went well today. [...]

“He’s normal again”

“He’s normal again”

Someone opened the floodgates on the KG news.  Jess Camerato caught up with some of the Celtics after their charity golf tournament… and they're pretty encouraged by what they see out of KG. “He’s happy, he’s talking more, which I didn’t think was possible,” Rivers said following the USI Shamrock Classic at the Nashawtuc Country [...]
