Boston Mayor Thomas Menino has gotten a lot of laughs in this city over the last decade. Since Boston sports teams have been winning titles and making deep postseason runs, Menino is often asked his opinion and to give some predictions. Most recently, he mixed up Kevin Garnett's "KG" nickname and called him, "KJ." In the same interview, he said "Hondo" while referring to Rajon Rondo.

Garnett, Celtics defined by more than age

On March 31, Minnesota wanted so much. Too much. No matter that Kevin Garnett had taken the Target Center court three times already as a Celtic. No matter that he'd been gone for five years; that he should have been more a memory than a source of such crippling insecurity. He was still Kevin Garnett, after all, but these were different desires, different hopes for the man who...

Boston Mayor Thomas Menino Mistakenly Refers to Kevin Garnett, Rajon Rondo as 'KJ' and 'Hondo' (Video)

The Boston Celtics look to have turned back the clock and found a much younger, more spry group of players in the year's postseason run.

Reliving KG's craziest moments

Earlier this year, Complex.com published video clips of Kevin Garnett's 15 Craziest Moments. With KG dominating the 2012 NBA playoffs in ways only he can, I figure it's a good time to relive the insanity.

Kevin Garnett Proving Intensity, Team Attitude As Hard to Copy As Physical Attributes

The 2003 draft profile for Chris Bosh, a freshman out of Georgia Tech, oozed with comparisons to Kevin Garnett. The unnatural athleticism and guard-worthy skills in their long, wiry frames made the two so similar, Bosh readily admitted to patterning aspects of his game after the then-eight-year veteran. Nine years later, Bosh has put together a nice career for himself. He was taken...

Forget the Heat, Celtics are the Real Story

Take a trip back to February 22nd. The Boston Celtics had a record of 15-17, were almost out of the playoff picture, and were on a five game losing streak.

Video: Lebron Steps Up in Game 6

This is what MVP’s do. When their team needs them and it’s win or go home, they rise up to the occasion, put their team on their back and get the W. Last night, Lebron James epitomized what it means to be an MVP. 45 points, 15 rebounds, 5 assists and 1 win. The last stat is the only number that really matters for the Miami Heat as they get the critical game 6 victory, 98-79,...

Celtics fans chant ‘Let’s go Celtics!’ at the end of blowout Game 6 loss (Video)

In the span of about 10 minutes on Thursday night, Celtics fans showed how they can be some of the classiest and most classless fans in America.
