It's been six years since Wally Szczerbiak took the court alongside Kevin Garnett for the Minnesota Timberwolves, but apparently bad feelings have died a slow death between the two NBA players.
Toward the end of the Boston Celtics' 115-111 loss to the Heat on Wednesday, which put them behind 2-0 in the Eastern Conference finals, Szczerbiak tweeted: "KG is another one who lacks the clutchgene always has." (The message has since been deleted.) This was after Garnett missed five of his final six field goal attempts and turned the ball over with 1:16 remaining in overtime, but still, it was harsh.
After all, Garnett finished the game with 18 points and eight rebounds. He did shoot just 33.3 percent from the field, but at 36, Garnett was largely responsible for leading the Celtics so deep in the playoffs this season after many thought the team too old to contend.
Szczerbiak, on the other hand, is a year younger than Garnett and hasn't played in the NBA since 200...
