T-Mobile Recap: Outquicked, outworked

How often did Hubie Brown say "outquicked and outworked" in the 4th quarter? 13 times? I wasn't counting, but he said it every time the Spurs beat the Celtics to a loose ball or grabbed an offensive rebound. And that was a lot. Manu Ginobili (28 points, 7 assists) and Richard Jefferson (16 points, 11 [...]

His starting 5:  Nash, Kobe, LeBron, Duncan and Shaq.  Hard to argue with that for an All Decade team. KG is a reserve… Though Garnett was the 2004 league MVP with Minnesota, [...]

Garnett averaged over 20 points, 10 rebounds, and [...]

No one has been better than KG

Ball Don't Lie has been ranking the best at each position for the past decade.  And when it comes to power forwards… none had a better run than Kevin Garnett. Despite the hype, the yelling, the commercials, the fawning on-air tributes from Bill Russell, and (a second time, just to be sure) all the yelling. [...]
