Jocks and Stiletto Jill:
Honey Nut Cheerios took on a whole new meaning this year after an on court altercation between Knicks Carmelo Anthony and Celtics Kevin Garnett continued into the locker room and halls of Madison Square Garden. Melo said he and KG spoke on the phone a short time after and squashed the beef but the question lingered, are they really “cool.”
Apparently so, the two are teammates this weekend for the NBA All-Star game and in a show of solidarity at the practice session Saturday morning joined together to get on Craig Sager and his robin’s egg blue ensemble for the day.
During the morning media session, KG also said that he wouldn’t waive his no trade clause for any team stating, “I bleed green.” There are rumors of a proposed trade of KG to the Clippers for Eric Bledsoe and DeAndre Jordan. He’s not the only Celtic in the trade rumor mill, the Lakers and Celtics are alleged to be in discussion for a swap of Dwight Howard for the injured Rajon Rondo. February 21st is the NBA’s trading deadline.

BEST OF MAXIM
Much was made of the supposed “beef” between Kevin Garnett and Carmelo Anthony earlier this season. After a physical, emotional game, Melo supposedly waited outside of the Boston locker room to have a word with KG. Then the rumors started flying about what was actually said on the court between the two. Now, the two have apparently talked and resolved whatever issues there might...
Just five weeks ago, Carmelo Anthony hated Kevin Garnett. We all know the story; Anthony and Garnett were going at it in a tightly contested game back on Jan. 8. It got chippy and the two started jawing and before long, Garnett went below the belt like he normally does and allegedly said that Anthony’s wife “tastes like Honey Nut Cheerios.”
Now I’m not married but if...
Kevin Garnett mentioned that he was bringing his family to All Star Weekend with him and he was going to enjoy it because it was going to be his last. That set off a feeding frenzy of the media speculating that he was planning to retire at the end of this season. He sets the record straight about those comments in this interview. I sure wish Rondo was there with him. They'...
Apparently ganging up on Craig Sager with Carmelo Anthony Saturday at All-Star practice wasn’t enough. In a sideline interview with Sager during the All-Star game Sunday, KG clowned the TNT reporter’s attire (photos) again:
“Stop wearing stuff like this when you’re doing real interviews. Straight up. You look like a Christmas ornament.” – Kevin Garnett to Craig Sager
Kevin Garnett plans to retire as a member of the Celtics.
STAYING IN BEANTOWN
Kevin Garnett has been mentioned in trade conversations, but the veteran All-Star forward says he will not waive his no-trade clause.
Sweet Jesus, it's 1 am on a Friday night, yet the rumors keep rolling in. But this time is a little different. This time it's Woj (esteemed Yahoo NBA insider Adrian Wojnarowski). The proposed deal: Kevin Garnett for Clippers PG Eric Bledsoe and C DeAndre Jordan.
Here's an excerpt from Woj's article (co-written with Marc Spears) (link).
The Boston Celtics and Los...
I love how they keep on wanting Bolt to give props to other teams and players, but it's all about Kevin Garnett and the Celtics for the world's fastest man.
Big thanks to Celtics Lifer Tia Compenser for the video tip.
The Boston Celtics and Los Angeles Clippers are still discussing a trade of Kevin Garnett and Eric Bledsoe, according to Yahoo Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski. But this deal would also include shot-swatting center DeAndre Jordan instead of Caron Butler.
Sources tell Woj that the Celtics and Clippers have been in "regular contact about the possibility." The big hurdle...
The Herald’s Mark Murphy offers this update on the Celtics need for a guard:
The Celtics are reportedly on the verge of signing a guard to a 10-day contract — a hedge in case a more desirable player is available in another two weeks — though management was still sifting through possibilities.
Shelvin Mack, the Maine Red Claws point guard, remained with his team on its road...
With the NBA trade deadline knocking on the doorstep, the Boston Celtics have a ton of decisions to weigh in, which could essentially make this the toughest deadline in Celtics history.
Currently, the Celtics sit in utter silence after storming rumors consisting of Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce this past week, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t talking trading places with players...
