Contrary to what his recent play would suggest, Kevin Garnett is no spring chicken. At 36 years old, I believe he’s played more minutes than any active player not named Kobe Bryant (and Kobe’s only got him by about a thousand—both players have put in better than 50,000 over the course of their careers). Still, if given free range to gather himself and only a late-arriving James Jones to conquer at the rim, he’s capable of throwing down Timberwolf style. While this one probably won’t make his career highlight reel, take note of the impressive amount of power…
Poor James Jones. He thought he was checking in to shoot a couple of leisurely three-point shots… next thing he knew he was getting mashed on by the angriest man in basketball.
On a serious note, that was some god-awful transition defense from the Heat. They had five guys back to pick up four players and still found a way to leave Boston’s biggest finisher completely unattended. To be perfectly honest, this basket never should’ve been scored.
