I’ve discussed the benefits of Yoga here before. Not only does it keep you in shape but also assists in your mental well being. Several athletes have incorporated yoga into their overall fitness routine. Boston Celtics All-Star Kevin Garnett is one of them. Check out the video of Garnett sharing his experience on how yoga has helped him stay flexible and center his energy.  You also get to watch him hit a few poses.   One of THE best things about LA living is Yoga on the beach! But no matter where you live, I’m an advocate of incorporating it into your lifestyle.

Video: Kevin Garnett tells Craig Sager “You look like a Christmas Ornament”

Kevin Garnett clowning on TNT sideline reporter Craig Sager must be the newest running joke between the two of them. In the past year, Kevin Garnett asked Craig Sager if he has “ever been in a barfight?” and numerous times over the years he has told Craig Sager to either stop wearing or “burn” the suits that have made Craig Sager who he is over the years. So when Craig Sager...

Kevin Garnett’s Loyalty to Celtics Could Hinder Team’s Future As NBA Trade Deadline Looms (Podcast)

Kevin Garnett has said it again and again — he will not waive his no-trade clause. Still, despite the Big Ticket’s best efforts, the Celtics continue to be linked in trade rumor after trade rumor involving their big man. KG has reiterated his allegiance to the Celtics time and time again, but general manager Danny Ainge might be wishing that Garnett wouldn’t. After all, Boston...

Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce Turning Back the Clock to Keep Celtics Contending Without Rajon Rondo

Kevin Garnett didn’t exactly make the dramatic All-Star game exit many Celtics fans had been hoping for when he cryptically leaked last week that this would be his last appearance in the event. He did take the floor as the starting center for the Eastern Conference, however, fulfilling his due diligence in the lineup and saluting the fans. The big man does, after all, have a surging...

Report: Clippers end talks for KG (wink, wink)

Clippers pushing again for deal with Celtics

Have avoided reporting every hiccup because much is slim sourced. But hearing of a new push within the Clippers to do something w/Celts. — Steve Bulpett (@SteveBHoop) February 21, 2013 To clarify: Some people w/in Clips want to do the Celt deal.

ESPN's Marc Stein: "KG isn't waiving that no-trade clause. For anyone or any team."

"Leave me alone Blake!" Marc Stein of ESPN has a column up that touches on many of the trade rumors and rumblings around the league.  A few quotes from it really jump out at me regarding the "Kevin Garnett lives in Malibu and is friends with Chauncey Billups so maybe he could be traded to the Clippers for DeAndre Jordan and Eric Bledsoe" story that won'...

Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett Will Not Look Back Fondly on Final Game as Celtics If Dealt at Trade Deadline

This was a tough way to go out. If the Celtics somehow trade away Paul Pierce or Kevin Garnett prior to Thursday’s trade deadline, their final game in green will not be a fond memory. The Celtics’ underwhelming effort in Los Angeles on Wednesday was indicative of all their troubles without a lead guard like Rajon Rondo or a willing garbage man like Jared Sullinger. The 113-99...

Chris Paul Tried to Get Kevin Garnett to Waive His No-Trade Clause, KG Declined

Apparently, Chris Paul is in charge of the Clippers front office (he would probably be better than some of the people they have had in the past).

Mark Murphy of the Boston Herald found that Chris Paul spoke to KG prior to the deadline and made...

Celtics-Nuggets Live: Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce Slated to Suit Up for Boston in Denver, For Now

8 a.m. ET: The Celtics ruin everything. A little over a week ago, the Nuggets were just rolling along, winners of nine straight and looking like one of the most formidable teams in the Western Conference. Since dropping a triple-overtime game in Boston, though, the Nuggets have seen their losing streak grow to three games and lurch into the post-All-Star break schedule just hoping...

Celtics looking for second wind

The Celtics marched into Laker-land with dead feet and tired minds. You could see from the get go that the momentum they had built prior to the all-star break was drying up faster than Kevin Garnett's resolve. We could argue and beat a dead horse about the lack of point guard play, but no one hardly speaks about the elephant in the room.  The very real need for a rugged big...
