Unlike the Dos Equis man, Wally Szczerbiak’s words do not carry weight that would break a less interesting man’s jaw. However, his sentiments on Kevin Garnett do hold a certain amount of significance simply because the two were teammates in Minnesota for the better part of seven seasons. Although they were together for what seemed like an eternity in NBA years, maybe the two weren’t the best of buds. During the latter stages of tonight’s Celtic loss, Szczerbiak tweeted the following…

Well damn.

For the record, Garnett misfired on five of his last six field goal attempts and also recorded a turnover with just over a minute left in overtime. He did connect on six key free throws as he scored 10 fourth-quarter points, though.

Despite the late giveaway and a variety of missed shots I didn’t feel that Garnett was particularly unclutch today, making Szczerbiak’s tweet a rather surprising one. Even if he was just doing his analyst job (it seems that he works for CBS Sports these days)… I don’t know… I guess I just feel like dudes tend to go easier on former teammates.

Also for the record, a Youtube search of “Wally Szczerbiak game winner” fails to deliver any results. A search of “Kevin Garnett game winner” brings about a few clutch buckets on the first page alone. I’m not sayin’ The Big Ticket is the my number-one choice to take the last shot, but what I am sayin’ is that I’ll take the dude over Wally Szczerbiak—now, or 10 years ago.
