The NBA season opens in four weeks with the Boston Celtics and Miami Heat on TNT. And when the Celtics land in Miami, don't expect the guys to call up old buddy Ray Allen for some post-game drinks at LIV... especially Kevin Garnett. Because according to KG, "I don't have Ray's number anymore." The Celtics and the Heat have quickly turned into bitter rivals, primarily since the Celtics pose one of the few significant threats to Miami's dominance in the East. An old and broken team still managed to push the Heat to seven games in the Eastern Conference Finals. After the Celtics had to watch Miami's championship celebration, they had to watch Miami gloat again after poaching the NBA's all-time 3-point leader. Kevin Garnett lobbied Ray Allen hard to stay in Boston, and Ray still passed on a return. Later, it was revealed that Ray was not too fond of picking up KG's post-game slack, which is just one of the many reasons Ray seems happy to be i...

Ray Allen is still damaged goods

Ray Allen said ankle issue likely will be ongoing throughout the season, something he will have to manage. He said he never wanted to let on publicly how serious it was last season in Boston. Ira Winderman (via PBT) Well, well, well… “ongoing throughout the season,” huh? That doesn’t sound very good for the Miami Heat, does it? Makes you kind of glad Ray didn’t accept Boston’s...

Ray Allen Says Kevin Garnett Getting Rid of Phone Number, Not Talking to Him Anymore Is 'A Shame'

Kevin Garnett probably remembers every kid who didn't share his cookies with him in grade school. As the Celtics reconvened Friday for the run-up to the new NBA season, Garnett was frank about how he felt about former teammate Ray Allen, who signed with the rival Miami Heat this offseason. Garnett said he hasn't talked to Allen since trying to convince him to stay in Boston...

Kevin Garnett's trying to mentor Fab Melo

Boston Herald: And no sooner had practice broke — the heavy stuff won’t be applied until tomorrow — than a bespectacled Garnett had Fab Melo over in one corner of the floor, attempting to teach the rookie the proper way to post up against an arm-barring defender. Melo, his eyes glued to Garnett’s every move, has obviously passed the first test. KG wants to teach him. ...

LeBron and Ray Allen Hit Half-Court Shots at Heat Practice


Although the sharpshooter is ‘a good person to talk to on the phone,’ Kevin Garnett tossed Ray Allen’s digits

Miami Heat shooting guard Ray Allen said after practice today that he still considers former teammate Kevin Garnett to be a friend despite the Boston Celtics power forward’s claim to the contrary. The 6-foot-11, 253 pound Garnett, a 14-time All-Star … Continue reading →

KG taking Celtics rookie big men under his wing

Sounds like Kevin Garnett is acting as the big man coach to Celtics rookies Fab Melo and Jared Sullinger. That was indeed the case on Sunday when Garnett spent some post-practice time with Boston's young bigs. And to their credit, they were more than eager to soak it all in. "For him to step out at the end of practice, knowing he's probably tired and just speaking...

Rajon Rondo Declines to Say Ray Allen's Name, Refers to Former Celtics Teammate as 'Number 20'

WALTHAM, Mass. -- Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and the rest of the Celtics insist that they harbor no ill will toward Ray Allen for signing with the rival Miami Heat this summer. Rajon Rondo might say the same, if he could bring himself to even say Allen's name.

How Sweet It Is - Camp Begins

After waiting what seemed like an eternity we finally have real Celtics news to talk about and real video to watch of the team we have anticipated all summer. KG was quotable as always "Well we have continuity," said Garnett. "Obviously, you've got to keep it continuous and stay consistent with it. But, for the most part, we're hanging out, we're being...

Dwyane Wade says KG doesn't need to be talking to his team

Dwyane Wade (via ESPN): "(Garnett) doesn't need to be talking to our team anyway, so it's all good. Mind your own business Mr. Pink Pants. Somehow Wade has become the bigger dick in Miami over LeBron. With his Rondo injuring, Dirk coughing, outfits, and overall doucheness, I can't stand him. Related: Ray Allen responds to Kevin Garnett's "I don'...

Video: KG on his close relationship with Rondo

Kevin Garnett sat down with CSNNE to discuss his close relationship with Rajon Rondo. KG says he's there for Rondo at any hour of the night to give him advice and that they are both stubborn guys (shocker). It's always a good thing when a team's two best players have a tight relationship.
