Different perspectives on KG’s performance

Different perspectives on KG’s performance

I love how people can look at the same thing and see something different. Perspective #1:  HE'S BACK! KG dropped 11 points in the first quarter.  He only missed two shots.  He was quarterbacking that D and he rebounding.  Oh yeah… he's back, baby.  This was the kind of KG performance that will make it [...]

That was our “competition” in the Atlantic

That was our “competition” in the Atlantic

If the Raptors are going to carry themselves this season like they're a playoff contender, they're gonna have to come stronger than they did tonight.  They were soft on D (The C's scored 33 first quarter points, 101 for the game, and shot 50%) and they were sloppy on offense (21 turnovers/19 assists).  That ain't [...]

How One Trainer Got KG Back In Shape

How One Trainer Got KG Back In Shape

Slam Online has a great read about Joe Abunassar and how he got Kevin Garnett in shape after the knee surgery: According to Abunassar, his body had shown the effects of the time spent away from the court since the Boston Celtics shut him down in March. His spindly frame had put on some weight. [...]

My Night at Celtics Practice

My Night at Celtics Practice

The Celtics held an open practice for season ticket holders last night at Tsongas Arena in Lowell. Even though I'm not a season ticket holder, I was able to attend (thanks to Steve C.). After getting autographs from Bob Cousy, Tommy Heinsohn, Cedric Maxwell and some lovely Celtics dancers (we had VIP passes), I settled [...]

Do We Really Need Much More From KG?

Do We Really Need Much More From KG?

  KG's line from last night's game: 16 points, 6 rebounds, 2 blocks in 22 minutes. This production is enough to help us win a title (Had he been able to give us half that in the playoffs last year, we would have blown past Orlando). Yes, the numbers will increase with the minutes, but [...]

Return of My Favorite Play

Return of My Favorite Play

Here's a highlight from the first quarter: Kevin Garnett with the spin, catch and dunk off the feed from Rajon Rondo. Damn, it's nice to see these two completing this play again. Yes, that's my kid squealing in the background. The Celtics rolled over Toronto 106-90. Garnett finished with 16 points (8-13 FG), 6 rebounds [...]

“I’d run through a brick wall if [Doc] wants me to”

“I’d run through a brick wall if [Doc] wants me to”

Peter May has a feature piece on KG up on Yahoo! today.  The whole thing focuses on KG's recovery and the challenges he faces because of it.  It's a good piece… but this quote about him and Doc is really striking. “Every time I step on the court, every time I pick up a basketball, [...]
