“Honestly, he’s an irritant. He (ticks) guys off in practice,” Rivers said. “He just irritates people. The funny thing is he’s the nicest guy. He doesn’t mean to, but that’s just what he does.”
[...] When asked if he can tell when he’s getting under an opponent’s skin, Hollins smiled and said, “a little bit.” But he said it’s not his main objective.
“I’m not really worried about how they feel,” Hollins said. “I’m worried about our team’s success and what we do. I’m a guy that plays hard and if I can disrupt a guy’s shot or get a guy off of what he’s doing, I’m doing my job.”

BOSTON-After dousing the Hawks thoughts of forcing a Game 7 on their home court, Kevin Garnett responded to another situation at his post-game media conference.
If you will recall Hawks owner Michael Gearon Jr. said that Garnett is “dirtiest guy in the league.

Boston had to use the fourth quarter to overcome losing game one, giving up home court advantage. Lucky for the Celtics, Rajon Rondo had a triple double while Kevin Garnett had 29 points and 11 rebounds.
Philadelphia controlled the first...
