When the Boston Celtics traded for Jordan Crawford yesterday I joked about how I didn't want Kevin Garnett to end up with a murder rap on his record after he went off on Jordan Crawford for not playing any defense (his reputation). Turns out the two almost came to blows not too far back. I actually remember this story, but it had slipped my mind. Thanks to CSNNE'S Jessica Camerato we have the full synopsis. Crawford is no stranger to Kevin Garnett's intensity. According to Yahoo! Sports, things got heated between the two players in a pickup game during the lockout. The Washington Post expanded, "Crawford started yapping because his team was winning handily. Garnett got upset and two players shoved each other before (Paul) Pierce held back Crawford. When Pierce let go, Crawford squared up with Garnett, then turned and walked away. Garnett tapped Crawford in the back of the head and Crawford went back at Garnett before cooler heads prevailed."

Comments from the Other Side - Jordan Crawford Edition

I'm convinced that the best way to evaluate a player is to see what the fans of the team he last played for say about him. So, I went to the Wizards fans to see what they had to say about their departing guard.   For the most part, they were angrier about what they didn't get back than losing Crawford.   Steez gon light it up in Boston y'all When the Crawford for...

Report: Kevin Garnett Told by Chris Paul That He Could Make Trade to Clippers Happen, But Garnett Said No

Everyone listen close now: This man bleeds green! While Kevin Garnett was emphatic in the days leading up to the NBA trade deadline that he did not want to play for anyone but Boston, that didn’t keep other teams from trying to make a move for him. That included the Clippers, who were among the prime trade partners, with Eric Bledsoe and DeAndre Jordan reportedly on the block in...

KG to Sit vs Suns - C's Set to Sign White

Kevin Garnett will sit tonight vs the Phoenix Suns and Jeff Green will get the start in his place. Small ball doesn't begin to describe what we will see tonight. More like "Mini Ball." There is help on the way, however. The Celtics are set to sign DJ White, who could be in uniform as soon as Sunday. White, who is a 6'9" forward, played in China this past...

Chris Paul Tried to Get Kevin Garnett to Waive His No-Trade Clause, KG Declined

Apparently, Chris Paul is in charge of the Clippers front office (he would probably be better than some of the people they have had in the past). According the Bleacher Report, CP3 tried to get KG to waive his no-trade clause so he could be dealt to LA, but KG wasn’t having it. Mark Murphy of the Boston Herald found that Chris Paul spoke to KG prior to the deadline and made...

A Thin Line Between Loyalty and Success

Comcast SportsNet New England’s Jessica Camerato put it bluntly: Whether it’s about KG, Rondo or Fab, no trade rumor should come as surprise. Basketball is a business. Execs have to explore any/all options. It’s something Boston Celtics fans should keep in mind as we close within 24 hours of Thursday’s 3 p.m. ET trade deadline. Over this past week, Danny Ainge has been one...

Jeff Green explodes for 31 points, seven boards and five blocks
