#Celticstalk : When asked if he would in any way waive his no-trade clause. "No," KG said. "If it's up to me, I'll live and die green." — A. Sherrod Blakely (@SherrodbCSN) February 16, 2013When reminded that it was his call to make on being traded, Garnett said, "OK then. What we talking about?" #Celticstalk — A. Sherrod Blakely (@SherrodbCSN) February 16, 2013 No shocking news here. It's been said more than once that Kevin Garnett would only accept a trade to another team if Paul Pierce was traded first. So in order for Danny Ainge to pull off a difficult trade of KG to the Clippers, he'd also have to orchestrate a difficult Pierce trade. As long as Pierce is still a Celtic, KG is going nowhere. This is actually pretty similar to the circumstances that brought KG to Boston. At first he said he wouldn't accept a trade to Boston, but after the Celtics traded for Ray Allen he changed his mind. In this case he's saying he won't ...

More KG at All Star Weekend

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'...

KG, Melo make fun of Craig Sager together

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...

Kevin Garnett To Craig Sager: “You Look Like A Christmas Ornament”

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

Why Aren’t Carmelo Anthony and Kevin Garnett Still Feuding?

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...

Celtics and Clippers discussing Kevin Garnett for Eric Bledsoe and DeAndre Jordan trade

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...

Danny Ainge explains Jeff Green's on-off switch

Ainge's weekly appearance on "the Big Show" has given us a lot of valuable information about the Celtics difficult week ahead, but one gem that might get lost in all the "what's going to happen next?" talk is his view on Jeff Green's efficiency. Green's performance has confused us often especially early in the season when he'd play great one...

Video: Celtics fan Usain Bolt shares his admiration for Kevin Garnett

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.

Boston Celtics Face Most Important Trade Deadline in Franchise History

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...

Celtics on verge of signing a guard to 10-day contract?

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...

They bleed green, they won´t trade our Celtics heart
