Found March 05, 2013 on Celtics Life:
ESPN Boston "[The referee] said, ‘I had one shoulder done and I was out six months and I still feel bad.’ I said, ‘That’s why you’re an official,’" Rivers recalled with a laugh. "I did see three bad calls after that, I said, ‘My gosh, I was just joking.'" Both Rivers and Kevin Garnett admitted that Bradley is likely not 100 perent this season. "Avery is everything to our defense," said Garnett. "I think he’s the anchor, if you will. He’s the true inspiration of what it is. He’s up on the ball, like 90-95 percent of the time. If you look at any other guard in the league, no one is playing defense like he is. He’s just tenacious man. I call him the silent leader and it’s by example." Forsberg's whole piece is worth a read. There's more from KG and Doc in there, plus some stats to back-up talk that Bradley is one of the very best defenders in the league. Stats like this: radley is second in the league while allowing a mere 0.678 poin

Avery Bradley might not be 100%

As tough as this might be to comprehend considering what he’s able to do out there, both Kevin Garnett and Doc Rivers said today that they don’t think Avery Bradley is 100% this season: “Although he isn’t really loud, he’s very vibrant,” added Garnett. “I don’t think he’s 100 percent [healthy], which is scary. I think he’s still working through some things with...

Pics: LaLa Anthony Behind the Scenes Swimsuit Photoshoot

LaLa has come out and denied the rumor that Kevin Garnett told her husband Carmelo Anthony she tasted like Honey Nut Cheerios, but since she wasn’t at the game and neither Carmelo nor KG have denied we still contend that it is true. While it is very disrespectful to say that about another man’s wife, one must admit that LaLa is a very attractive lady, worthy of the title of...
