Found November 04, 2013 on Celtics Life:
With the Brooklyn Nets off to an up and down 1-2 start to the early NBA season, ex Celtic Kevin Garnett is already questioning his role in Brooklyn. Here is what KG had to say:  "I've got to get better with what I'm doing, making my minutes more productive," Garnett said. "I'm just being a little more passive, trying to be the glue, if you will. I need to be a little more aggressive at times." The Nets have an early home win against the Miami Heat, but the win is sandwiched between disappointing losses to the Cleveland Cavaliers and Orlando Magic. Garnett is yet to score in double figures as a member of the Nets. KG is averaging 7.3 PPG and 7.3 RPG in 24.8 MPG. Brooklyn will look to get back on track Tuesday at home against the Utah Jazz. The Nets first game against the Celtics will be December 10th at the Barclays Center and first game in Boston is on January 26th. Source: Fan Nation Follow Julian @BleedGreenBlogs

Paul Pierce is 36. Victor Oladipo is 21. Who knew the old man was capable of crossing-over a young stud? The dunk in the face of Jason Maxiell isn’t bad either. The Truth is still a baaaad man. (h/t Ball is Life)
