Who knew KG still (or ever) had this kind of handle?
As the Celtics were starting their dramatic 4th quarter rally against the Bulls last night, Kevin Garnett delivered what for me was his most entertaining and impressive highlight of the season. Garnett decided he was going to be the point guard.
He held the ball near half court, directed traffic, and called out a play; just as we've seen Rajon Rondo do for years. Garnett then dribbled to his right, and handed the ball off to set a screen.
When nothing developed he got the ball back at the three point line. What happened next completely took me by surprise, and caused me to jump up screaming from my seat at the Garden. KG dribbled through his legs, spun, took a jab step to clear some space, and drained a fall away jumper from the top of the key; right in Joakim Noah's face. It was a move reminiscent of Jordan, Kobe, or a even a young Paul Pierce. Definitely not something you'd ever expect to see from a 36 year old 7-foot...
