Terrell H. is a Celtics fan from Minneapolis, Minnesota. He’s been a fan of the Celtics since around 2007 when his hero, Kevin Garnett, was traded there. As a boy, seeing KG play at the Target Center was what first got him interested in hoops. He immediately “connected” with Garnett, and was amazed at his intensity:
I have been a Celtic Fan since the Summer of 2007, the KG trade made me a fan, Minnesota Timberwolves had me fed up at that point, they made bad decisions every year, but I’m glad they did the trade because it felt like destiny. I noticed all the things they the Celtics are about and have done matched a lot of things in my life, I noticed that. People can talk about how KG brought me to the Celtics, but I will Talk about how I plan on staying a Celtic fan for the rest of my life. It feels like it was my destiny to be a Celtics fan because this organization embodies what it means to be the best, even when the team was doing sub par in the 90′s- early 00′s the fans always ...

Joakim Noah and Kevin Garnett have a history against each other, and Noah had a funny response when asked about KG's trash talk.
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...
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...
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...
On Friday night, after the Bulls beat the Celtics 100-99 in overtime, Joakim Noah said he didn’t want to talk too much, and especially not about Kevin Garnett, with whom Noah tangled again on Friday night and about whom Noah has had some pointed words in the past.
So on Friday, Noah did not go as far as to say that Garnett was a dirty player, as he has alleged before. Instead,...
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.”

The Celtics host the New Orleans Hornets tonight, normally a fairly insignificant game on the schedule. But today it includes the story line of C’s head coach Doc Rivers facing off against his son, Austin, who was the Hornets first round draft pick last June.
This evening could also be a big night for Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce. Garnett (24,809) needs just 7 points to pass...
Bulls fans sure do hate KG and Rondo. I think it comes from having their own center and PG out played by them so many times. It was great that even the Bulls fans realize that they were given that game by the refs. That was a horrible call on the jumpball. Pierce was clearly fouled. No call. Rondo also signaled for a time out in Marc Davis' face and wasn't given...
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...
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...

The loss versus New Orleans broke the Celtics 5 game winning steak, so Doc Rivers...
