Beyond The Buzzer:
From one athletic freak out of Chicago’s South Side to another, Kevin Garnett had high praise for Anthony Davis.
“That kid is long,” the aging Celtics superstar said of the Hornets rookie. “He makes me look like a midget, man. I was nothing like him. He’s a freak of nature. This kid’s going to be really good. He’s going to be really good.”

Joakim Noah and Kevin Garnett have a history against each other, and Noah had a funny response when asked about KG's trash talk.
BOSTON — On the surface, Anthony Davis seems to have a lot in common with a young Kevin Garnett. The lithe rookie for the New Orleans Hornets is just as freakishly athletic at 6-foot-10 as Garnett was as a 19-year-old for the Minnesota Timberwolves in 1995. Just like a young Garnett, Davis’ potential is clear despite a mostly up-and-down rookie campaign.
Playing against Davis...
Noah and Kevin Garnett, whom Noah once called “a dirty player,” battled throughout, drawing double technicals at one point.
“He’s a helluva competitor,” Noah said. “He’s always on some bull(crap), just trying to throw elbows, cheap shots, trying to get you off your game. He has been doing this a long time. But it’s all right.
“When we lose, I feel like he crosses...
After the game last night Joakim Noah (son of French professional tennis player Yannick Noah) was asked about playing defense against Kevin Garnett. Here's what Noah had to say:
(I was) just playing defense. Just playing sound defense, just contesting his shots. He's a helluva competitor. He's always on some bulls---. Always on some bulls---. Just trying to throw elbows...
Speaking on TNT NBA Tip-off, Charles Barkley and Shaquille O’Neal said Garnett, who received 553,222 votes, the least among the 10 starters, didn’t deserve the honor this year.
“I love Kevin Garnett, but he’s not having an All-Star year,” Barkley said. “It’s not fair to Tyson Chandler. He should be starting in the All-Star Game.”
“Tyson Chandler should be starting...

This evening could also be a big night for Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce. Garnett (24,809) needs just 7 points to pass...

A Garden technician holds a sensitive mic at Sunday's game to eavesdrop on what Carmelo Anthony and is opponents say. James Dolan ordered two of them to be used at each game to avoid more "he said, he said" situations like the one that arose between Anthony and Kevin Garnett.
There has been a lot said about KG's trash talking since something he said to Carmelo...
The Celtics have lost. This one really sucked. We had a lead with a few seconds left in both the fourth and in OT, yet we couldn't catch a break. Rondo played amazing: putting in 30 points, 2 rebounds, and 7 assists. Unfortunately, he fouled out mid-way through overtime. This one stings and I just want to move on, but I won't.
Tonight's underrated stat of the night...
New York Knicks owner James Dolan is one crazy guy. After Carmelo Anthony and Kevin Garnett got in their heated on court argument, Anthony waited for Garnett at the team bus trying to straiten things out. Apparently Garnett said his wife La La “tastes like Honey Nut Cheerios.” The verbal fight resulted in technical fouls against each player, and a suspension for Carmelo for...
Congratulations to Rajon Rondo and Kevin Garnett for being voted in by the fans as starters. Between KG and Melo in the frontcourt and Dwyane Wade and Rondo in the back court, this may be one...
Tweet After the Honey Nut Cheerios incident between Carmelo Anthony and Kevin Garnett earned Anthony a one-game suspension, Knicks owner James Dolan wasn’t going to take any more chances. That’s why, according to a report, on Friday and Sunday when the Knicks matched up with the Chicago Bulls and New Orleans Hornets, Dolan had in-house [...]
