“I thought he did a great job,” Garnett said of Sullinger’s first start during the Celtics [team stats]’ win in Washington last Saturday. “He’s a no-nonsense guy. Not that I’m shooting down the other guys, but he’s a young fella, he comes in and does what you tell him. He’s a great rebounder. His IQ is incredible.
“He reminds me a lot of Perk, man. Not the defender Perk was, but his IQ moving the ball and being unselfish is the same.”
Sullinger learned this much — when Kevin Garnett speaks, the wisest thing to do is agree.
“It means a lot,” Sullinger said of the comparison. “First of all, it comes from Kevin. When Kevin gives anybody praise, he really likes you, I guess. It’s a blessing.
“But at the same time I have to keep working.”

Jared Sullinger starts again for the Celtics as they face the Wiards for the second straight game. Doc Rivers was asked before the game why Sullinger was starting again, which he met with a simple answer. “We’re playing the same team!” Rivers joked. “I do like Jared in the lineup. I just think he just [...]
In Kevin Garnett's post-practice interview today, he addressed the Celtics' consistency issues from the first few games of the season.
From WEEI's Ben Rohrbach:
The Boston Celtics hosted their first open practice of the regular
season in Waltham on Tuesday, and Kevin Garnett sent a clear message to
his new teammates: Buy into the Celtics system of practicing how...

Obviously a pretty big compliment by the Big Ticket. KG has been searching for a partner in crime down low since Perkins was traded. Shaq couldn't get back on the court due to his foot. J.O. needed to be wrapped...
We’ve seen what happens to the Celtics when Kevin Garnett isn’t in the line up. We know it. But if you don’t, Cedric Maxwell summed it up quite nicely on CSNNE:
“I think the thing about KG, KG is the engine,” Maxwell said. “You can have the keys — Rondo has the keys to everything — but KG is the engine and when the engine is going the car is going the right way...
Kevin Garnett has given us much enjoyment with his post game interviews. We have heard rants about how he can shoot threes and how he's not old. We've heard analogies about making tortillas and casseroles. Whatever he comes up with, it's always fun. But, when even KG calls an interview weird, you know it's going to be fun. Here is a transcript from Green Street...
WALTHAM, Mass. — After more than 45,000 minutes played and some 24,000 points scored, Kevin Garnett has gotten the hang of this professional basketball thing.
But as the surefire future Hall of Famer embarks on his 18th NBA season, he is the subject of constant monitoring, probably even more so than he was as a teenager in 1995. Back then, after all, nobody knew what to expect...

I'm still trying to figure out how Boston Celtics guard Paul Pierce was able to thread this pass to Kevin Garnett against the Washington Wizards.
Maybe, he has eyes in the back of his head:
In a game devoid of cohesive and consistent offense, the Celtics trail 42-37 at the half. Kevin Garnett has seven points and 10 boards while Rajon Rondo has eight points and five assists. Rondo, who is halfway to his 28th straight double-digit assist game, has been as creative as ever tonight with several dazzling behind-the-back [...]

Doc has a lot of toys to play with, but which should he use and when?
The Boston Celtics are off to a lackluster 1-2 start. Coming into the season, there was much hype surrounding the Green Team following their headline acquisitions (and one headline departure), but fans and the team, for that matter, are learning that it will take some hard work.
Doc Rivers has been down this road...
