Kevin Garnett says he would die for the Celtics if he had to

Listen to the interview at WEEIKevin Garnett’s comments from the interview above, presented with no commentary:“Man, I would die out here if I had to, real talk.

Tim Duncan hates Kevin Garnett. Hates him.

Our friends at Project Spurs were kind enough to alert us to a new Tim Duncan interview with Sports Illustrated's Chris Ballard.

This information comes from very reliable sources, who talk about how KG has made a career of trying to...

Garnett’s Remarkable Resurgence

LL Cool J once said, “Don’t call it a come-back. I been here for years, rocking my peers and putting suckas in fear.” The same could be said for Kevin Garnett who has had a resurgence in this year’s playoffs.

Your Morning Dump... Where KG reminded everyone of Ubuntu

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here... highlighting the big storyline. Because there's nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump. "After [Game 2] I came in and just said, ‘We’re not going to beat anybody -- JV teams or high school teams -- if we were not going to play together," Kevin Garnett said. "We’ve worked...

No Horsing Around: Paul Pierce is on Bronco Garnett

   DATELINE: HUMOR! Paul Pierce said it:  “We’re gonna ride Kevin Garnett all the way.” Hi-yo, Silver, away!

KG says let the players decide the game

The Boston Celtics head into game 3 with the Philadelphia 76ers tonight tied at one game apiece in their 7-game series. They have only themselves to blame after scoring just 11 points in the 3rd quarter of Game 2, but they have to be a little bitter about not getting one last chance to finish off a crazy comeback. Down three with 10 seconds to go, Kevin Garnett was whistled for...

Your Morning Dump... Where Doc wasn't fond of the foul call

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here... highlighting the big storyline. Because there's nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump. No one can argue that Garnett did, in fact, clear out Andre Iguodala with his arm in an attempt to get Paul Piercefor a potential game-tying 3-pointer. The issue is whether there’s a difference between...

Doc Rivers Explains Celtics' Late Foul, Confesses C's Wanted to Foul Earlier

BOSTON -- The Celtics actually committed two key fouls at the end of Game 2. Kevin Garnett's controversial illegal screen drew most of the attention, but a decision by the Celtics a few seconds earlier may have had just as big an impact on the outcome of Boston's 82-81 loss to the Philadelphia 76ers. In a game in which almost nothing seemed to go according to plan, the Sixers...

Celtics take out anger on 76ers in Game 3

Many times after basketball games conclude, we prescribe emotions to a team or player just because of the results. When the Los Angeles Lakers came back to defeat the Boston Celtics in Game 7 two seasons ago, we described Kobe Bryant as indomitable because he rebounded a heap of misses and the Lakers prevailed. Partially, our description was true. Bryant surely wanted that game...

Sixers 82, Celtics 81: The series heads to Philadelphia knotted at 1-1

When Lavoy Allen’s prayer with 0.9 seconds on the shot clock improbably banked through the rim and the refs shortly thereafter declined to call a travel after Evan Turner took approximately 19 steps, I figured this might be Philadelphia’s night.Yes, the Celtics responded with a couple threes and made a number of other important plays down the stretch, including Rajon Rondo’s...
