Kevin Garnett ripped the media from some of their lousy analysis, but he was actually thankful for it. Find out why that was the case.
Scorers get the glory, but a lockdown defender is crucial to any team with championship aspirations. With points at a premium this season, the true defensive specialists have emerged from the fold. It is not easy to muster the energy to shut down the other team's best player three times in four nights -- or even three times in three nights, on occasion. But a chosen few have...
Kevin Garnett has a lot of great things to say about Avery Bradley, you can tell he's proud of how he has developed and emerged as, really, one of the most important members of this Celtics team. Plus, he hints he needs to be "rewarded". Agree?

Veteran power forward Kevin Garnett has beenabsolutely dominant for the Boston Celtics since moving to center almost a month ago.The Boston Celtics have been steamrolling their opponents for the better part of the last month or so – and maybe it should come as no surprise – seeing as how future Hall of Fame forward Kevin Garnett has raised the level of his play following...
The Boston Globe’s Gary Washburn is reporting that according to Doc Rivers, Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett “probably” won’t play tonight. With Rondo, Allen, and Pietrus already not making the trip to Atlanta, this represents a philosophical decision by the Celtics that rest is more important than home court advantage in the first round. [...]
Since tonight’s game in Atlanta could very well decide who receives home court advantage in the first round, it’s safe to say Doc Rivers has officially entered “I’m really banking on the fact that we can beat Atlanta or Orlando on the road” mode. Either that or he’s banking on Avery Bradley scoring 45 points, Sean Williams and Greg Stiemsma combining for 17 blocked...

With Ray Allen, Rajon Rondo and Mickael Pietrus already not traveling to Atlanta, Doc Rivers has also decided to hold out Paul Pierce AND Kevin Garnett so they can get some rest.
So.... this will be a hoot, won't it? Here's my guess at the starting line up

As the Celtics continue to make their push towards banner 18, a long lasting debate has been rekindled with the newfound hope that this current Celtics team can muster up enough to win...
(Fast forward to 2:25 for the good stuff)Kevin Garnett repeatedly bowed when the TD Garden’s PA announcer called Bill Russell’s name and beckoned the shot-block king forward to accept his honor as part of the 1961-62 championship team’s 50th anniversary celebration. I might have bowed too, but I was busy trying to hold my iPhone steady so I could record the moment. Believe...

In what might shock most people outside of Boston, especially after the Celtics went into the All-Star Break with a 15-17 record, the C’s clinched the Atlantic Division title tonight with a 102-98 win over the Orlando Magic. Going into the 2011/12 NBA season, it was generally accepted that the Carmelo Anthony-led New York Knicks would cruise to the division crown over a pretty...
Very few people considered Avery Bradley a candidate to break out and help inspire a second-half Boston Celtics surge, but Kevin Garnett saw the potential a lot earlier than most. As soon as Garnett began playing pickup games with Bradley, he noticed the way the youngster played defense, the fast-twitch muscles that moved more quickly than most everyone else’s, the work ethic...
