WALTHAM, Mass. -- Mickael Pietrus hails from the island of Guadeloupe. Kevin Garnett is originally from South Carolina. Yet according to Pietrus, for now Garnett might as well shout, "Ich bin ein Berliner!" The former (and possibly future) Celtics teammates made a friendly wager on the presumptive finalists for the UEFA Euro Cup, Pietrus disclosed Wednesday at the Celtics practice facility. Pietrus took Spain, while Garnett claimed Germany. Pietrus would not say what is riding on the bet. He also said he has tried to respect his teammate's relative privacy while the rest of the world wonders whether Garnett, a...

They are only 48 hours apart, but July 1, not June 28, is the real D-Day for the Celtics. We face the possibility that two of the linchpins of the past five years, Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen, will not be back. Hard as it might be to envision a Celtics team without either one, Ainge said recently that he can’t afford to be remotely sentimental in dealing with either player...
WALTHAM, Mass. -- Mickael Pietrus watched LeBron James and the Miami Heat cruise to victory in five games over the Oklahoma City Thunder in the NBA Finals, but the free agent swingman never stopped to wonder, "What if?" What if the ball had bounced Boston's way just a couple more times, and Pietrus and the Celtics had outlasted the Heat in seven games in the Eastern...
WALTHAM, Mass. -- Kevin Garnett typically looms large at the Celtics' practice facility. A 6-foot-11 future Hall of Famer cannot help but dominate the room, but on Wednesday, Garnett managed to take over the proceedings even though he was nowhere to be found. Garnett, an unrestricted free agent, has yet to make his intentions publicly known as the opening of the free agency period...
Kevin Garnett has been in contact with Danny Ainge since the Celtics were eliminated in the Eastern Conference finals.
For any team in any sport, the draft is the primary period where the public truly sees an organization’s brain-trust come together in one room to set the direction for the unit.

Danny Ainge spoke to the media the day before the NBA draft on a variety of topics about the Celtics' future. Also, fan favorite Mickael Pietrus speaks to Molly McGrath about his offseason surgery and summer (video after the jump).
Ryan Hollins played 5 1/2 seasons in the NBA and never found a big man he clicked with quite like Kevin Garnett. Hollins showed almost immediate improvement when he landed in Boston on March 23, meshing with Garnett and forming an occasionally impenetrable defensive duo in the post. The 17-year veteran even went to unusual lengths to mentor Hollins, 27, a gesture the younger player...
The Celtics are really in need of a center. Currently the Celtics don’t really have a true center on their roster. During the Celtics playoff run Kevin Garnett mostly played center but he is really a true power forward. Garnett’s future with the Celtics is uncertain.
The Celtics could also really use an athletic wing player or a shooting guard if Ray...
The New Orleans Hornets got a big break when they won the lotter and got the only franchise player in this year’s NBA draft.It’s hard to image that just a couple years ago in high school Davis was a guard, now he has grown into a power forward. His game reminds people of Kevin Garnett or Tim Duncan not bad. Davis has great length and size, and he just needs to...
Doc Rivers spoke about Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen during an appearance this morning at the Positive Coaching Alliance panel at Fenway Park. CSNNE’s Carolyn Manno tweeted out some quotes:
Rivers: “I don’t know if Kevin is coming back but let’s just say yes. Positive thinking.”
When asked about KG’s future with Celtics he seemed more optimistic than pessimistic to me...
There is a chance that Josh Smith and Kevin Garnett could be Celtics teammates come next season
What made the Boston Celtics great in 2012 is that when they entered the post-season they knew exactly what they were as a basketball team. They were a primarily jump-shooting team that played their asses off on the defensive side of the court and were at their best when Rajon Rondo was...
Last night, a fake Stephen A Smith Twitter account (@stephenasmift, not @stephenasmith) posted that Kevin Garnett would be announcing his retirement today at 1 PM on ESPN:
Sad day for the NBA, as the great Kevin Garnett has decided to retire. Press conference scheduled for 1 pm EST tomorrow on ESPN.
— Stephen A Smith (@stephenasmifh) June 27, 2012
The tweet was believed...
1.Anthony Davis Kentucky Fr. 6’10” – It’s hard to image that just a couple years ago in high school Davis was a guard, now he has grown into a power forward. His game reminds people of Kevin Garnett. Davis has great length and size, and he just needs to add some muscle. Davis is an outstanding athlete with great quickness and leaping ability. Offensively he has...
