Hooped Up: Atlanta Hawks:
This is why Kevin Garnett is worth the price of admission and why I’d want him in a fox hole with you in any battle. Sure, KG doesn’t have to taunt Andrea Bargnani during a simple preseason game, but he’ll do it anyway cause he’s just that dude who loves to win. I can dig it.

When Kevin Garnett is down on all fours and barking like a dog, you know he's playing for keeps. Even in the past when he's wearing a suit on the sidelines yelling at an opposing inbounder, you know he's giving everything he can emotionally for his team when you see him mean mugging all who oppose him. Some may view this behavior as strange, peculiar, or weird, but...
If anyone was watching the Celtics-Raptors preseason game closely on Sunday (and who wasn't?), they noticed Celtics forward Kevin Garnett and Raptors center Andrea Bargnani get into bit of a yapping match. It was no surprise Garnett, a noted trash talker, was involved, but Bargnani has never been known for his jabber. As Bargnani stood at the perimeter, Garnett clapped his hands...
The preseason is notoriously known for players slacking off and acting as if it is an all-star game, however with the shortened season some players are already in the playoff state of mind. One of those folks would be the ever emotional Kevin Garnett as evidenced below when the Celtics beat the Raptors 76-75 this weekend. If I were Andrea Bargnani I would have been intimidated...
It often works the other way around. When a player joins the tradition-laden Boston Celtics, it elicits giddiness.
But not for Glen Davis. He was happy to be leaving the Celtics.
"I was really excited," Davis said of hearing the news earlier this month that a sign-and-trade had been worked out for him to head to Orlando. "It's a great opportunity."
ESPN Boston’s Chris Forsberg is reporting that the Celtics rookie Power Forward and first round selection JaJuan Johnson has seemingly earned the trust of future Hall of Famer Kevin Garnett. The quote from Forsberg: * JJ earns KG’s trust: It may seem minor, but JaJuan Johnson appears to have already earned the trust of Kevin Garnett and that’s huge [...]
Say what you will about Kevin Garnett, he's already in mid-season taunting form:(Courtesy of The Basketball Jones)
Our morning look around the NBA with stories worth reading and notes that are not their own post here at PBT. Kevin Garnett went all Kevin Garnett and taunted a Raptor during a meaningless preseason game. Does this even shock us anymore? Jason Terry had to leave Mavericks practice early Monday and ended up at…
Doc Rivers plans to utilize Kevin Garnett in 5-minute increments.
There’s nothing wrong with being the backup for one of the greatest power forwards of all time. There aren’t many who would say that Glen “Big Baby” Davis didn’t contribute as much as he could during his four years as a Boston Celtic, but he says he can do more. Chris Tomasson writes that Davis is ready to move out of Kevin Garnett’s shadow and step up as a starter now...
There is no place Tyson Chandler would rather be on Christmas than at Madison Square Garden trying to make life miserable for Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce. But there is a part of him will miss being in Dallas as they hand out championship rings.
