Found March 31, 2012 on Celtics Life:
That was fun.  I love it when KG gets so fired up.  He's so much fun to watch.  Wolves fans have mixed feelings about the Big Ticket: fond memories, feelings of betrayal, love, hate,admiration.  You name it and there is a fan feeling it.  I think the comment that cracked me up the most was "Hey look it's that guy we traded for Al Jefferson".  Of all the hate for KG, Rondo, and Pierce on boards, this is the first one I've found with real Sasha Pavlovic hate.  Guess having him on your team for a year will do that.  Lots of fun comments today.  Any favorites?  I suspect KG is not going to be received well by the crowd. I loved him when he was here but I have grown very tired of his attitude. KG was over for me when he played for the first time against us and he pounding his fist on the Celtics sign. Disrespectful SOB I hope there is a stream with the Wolves commentators because I almost punch my computer screen listening to the reverse garbage disposal that is...

Rajon Rondo's Command of Celtics Offense Reaching Expert Level

All Rajon Rondo has done lately is be perfect. Rondo did have a few blights on his resume in Friday's win over the Timberwolves. He committed two turnovers and hit only three of his 11 shots, if we're splitting hairs, but those flaws hardly registered during a 17-assist performance in which he commanded the Celtics offense as well as he has all season. Rondo extended his...

KG has no love for the Wolves

Even without a title, Kevin Garnett had his best years in Minnesota, but when asked about the past, he couldn't find anything nice to say about his former squad. 

Taking Stock: Celtics - Jazz

After every game, we'll take stock of how each individual performance affects the player's overall value. Starters Rajon Rondo:  Ho Hum, another double-digit assist night.  And as a bonus, 9 of his assists led to makes at the rim.  Very often, Rajon is assisting on long jumpers.  It's nice to see a more uptempo game where guys are getting dunks.  It's...

Recap: KG sticks it to Wolves, one more time

The Celtics started strong and finished even stronger in tonight's 100-79 victory over the Wolves. Kevin Garnett was phenomenal: 24 points, 12-18 FG, 10 rebounds, 4 assists and 1 block. He dropped 10 points in the 4th quarter. The Wolves tried to make a run midway thru the 4th, but Garnett slammed the door. After re-entering the game (Stiemsma fouled out) at the 5:26 mark,...

Doc Rivers Could Have Sensitive Issue on His Hands If He Elects to Rest Celtics Veterans Down the Stretch

BOSTON -- One of these days, Kevin Garnett may have to sit out a game. Garnett won't like it -- he has played in 47 out of a possible 50 games this season, after all, and has appeared in more than 90 percent of his team's games in 12 separate seasons -- but eventually Celtics coach Doc Rivers is going to have to break the bad news to his veteran non-center. If it becomes...

Celtics Live Blog: Kevin Garnett, C's Open Grueling Stretch of Schedule By Hosting Miami Heat
