Found May 31, 2012 on Fox Sports:
Wally Szczerbiak played six-plus seasons with Kevin Garnett from 1999-2006 with the Minnesota Timberwolves, so it's safe to assume he got to know Garnett and his game pretty well. Szczerbiak's career has since ended, and he has moved on to do analyst work for CBS Sports, which means that it is now his job to give opinions on the game. So with Garnett's Celtics in the Eastern Conference finals, Szczerbiak saw a chance to chime in on Wednesday night during Game 2 of Boston's series with the Miami Heat -- an eventual 115-111 overtime win by Miami. What he had to say, though, surprised some. The former sharpshooter questioned how clutch Garnett really was, by tweeting the following: "KG is another one who lacks the #clutchgenealways has!" read the first tweet about Garnett. That was followed by another tweet that read "KG never takes big shot for #Celtics now he's fourth in line behind [Paul] Pierce, [Ray] Allen and [Rajon] Rondo to take clutch sho...

Kevin Garnett extra-motivated because he might retire following this season, according to report

We’ve all noticed Kevin Garnett’s increased production, which has been consistent and relentless since the All-Star break as the final year in his contract winds down. If you believe Garnett has increased his focus or intensity because this is a contract year, I have a time machine I’d love to sell you. He has more than 291 million reasons not to chase his next contract,...

Report: Retirement a possibility for KG

A report says 36-year-old forward Kevin Garnett could consider retiring after the season when his contract with the Celtics expires.


K.G. praises the Boston fans by cursing

Kevin Garnett was juiced after the Celtics' win over the Heat on Friday night. "The jungle was rocking tonight," Garnett said, thanking the TD Garden fans for matching his intensity in the playoff game. Garnett gave an inspiring performance that included 24 points, 11 rebounds and even some knuckle push-ups. See what he and Ray Allen had to say after the game on NESN Daily.

Szczerbiak rips Kevin Garnett

Wally Szczerbiak ripped his former teammate Kevin Garnett over Twitter during Game 2 between the Celtics and Heat for his play. 

Kevin Garnett Is Out Of His Mind And I Love It

Saw this video surface on Twitter this afternoon.   Even if you don’t like Kevin Garnett, you have to respect his passion for the game.    

Can Boston Celtics recover from devastating Game 2 loss?

Forget for a second that the Boston Celtics will be playing their 16 playoff game in 32 days on Friday night. Push aside the fact that Kevin Garnett, 36 years old and with more than 50,000 NBA minutes under his belt, has never played longer in a Celtics uniform than the 45 minutes he posted in Game 2. Overlook the possibility for mental fatigue that comes with flying from Miami...

Kevin Garnett could consider signing with Lakers

Kevin Garnett is currently the fourth-highest salary earner in the NBA, but he’ll be a free agent after the season and likely to sign for far less than the $21.2 million he’s making. There have been reports that the Nets will be interested in signing him, and it’s possible he and the Lakers could come to an agreement. During an interview with Mark Willard on 710 ESPN Radio...

The KG/Rondo dynamic: clash and recover

In many ways, Kevin Garnett and Rajon Rondo are the same person, they just express themselves a little differently.  Think of them as cars with the same engine, but different bodies.  The thing about their personalities, though, is that they're always right... at least in their own minds.  And they're not going to believe they're wrong until someone they respect...

Your Morning Dump... Where the jungle was f---ing rocking

  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. "The next game, game 4 is going to be even more. You gotta anticipate them making adjustments.  We're gonna make some adjustments.  But the tenacity, the desperation has to be there.  We...

Tweet of the Night

This tweet was sent to us from Josh Hobson because I think Wally deleted this tweet for all the crap he got for it.  I went back and checked my timeline of my retweets and couldn't find it!  Smart PR move on his part because let's face it, who is Wally Szczerbiak to say anything to a man of Kevin Garnett's caliber whether the statement was true or not.  Just a battle...

Vote: What Grade Would You Give NBA Officials This Postseason?

Game 1 between the Celtics and the Heat had basketball fans and analysts around the country talking. But they weren't talking about Miami's 93-79 win. They were talking about the five technical fouls the Celtics were assessed, many of which seemed questionable. In the second quarter, Kevin Garnett was given a delay of game technical for tipping the ball toward the sideline...

Davis Family Anxiously Awaiting Lottery Results

Anthony Davis says he mirrors his game after Kevin Garnett on offense and Serge Ibaka on defense.

Celtics Still Have A Pulse, Win Game 3

That ole Celtic magic remains. After falling 2-0 to the mighty Miami Heat in their NBA Eastern Conference Finals series the Celtics roared back with a 101-91 win over the Heat in Game 3. This time Rajon Rondo didn’t have to do it all. Oh Rondo contributed big time scoring 21 points with 10 assists and six rebounds but Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett pick it up. Garnett...

Foolproof plans to ensure a Celtics victory

The Celtics need to win tonight. Falling behind 2-0 to the Heat could be a death sentence. Better defensive rebounding and foul shooting would be nice, a consistent 48 minutes from Rajon Rondo, and someone other than Kevin Garnett as a scoring option would go a long way to giving the C’s a realistic chance to win game two. If none of that works, then it’s time to get in the...

A valiant, stinging loss

It was by far their most devastating loss of the season, yet the Boston Celtics were every bit the champions they had been in winning the 2008 title. They were pesky and courageous and they desperately attempted to defy defeat. They were outmatched and on the road and down to one player with enough gas and skill to make a difference, and yes, they were a little inconsistent, yet...
