Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big storyline. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump.
As KG spends All-Star weekend as the only Celtic in Houston, you can’t help but wonder what kind of “discussions” go on in the East’s locker room. But despite having many run-ins with the likes of Noah and ‘Melo, it’s clear that Garnett still has the respect of his peers:
Mark Murphy- KG’s Ornery Style Wins Respect If Not Friends
They come from all parts of the country, even the world, and as young big men good enough to play in the NBA, they’ve shared a truly strange experience. Almost to a man, they have been cussed out, elbowed and glared at by their idol, Kevin Garnett. Chicago’s Joakim Noah, once called a “nobody” by Garnett, learned some irritating lessons from his childhood hero about how to dish back ornery behavior.
Last Wednesday both players had a good 3 feet on either side as they crossed the lane during a
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
Kevin Garnett mentioned that he was bringing his family to All Star Weekend with him and he was going to enjoy it because it was going to be his last. That set off a feeding frenzy of the media speculating that he was planning to retire at the end of this season. He sets the record straight about those comments in this interview. I sure wish Rondo was there with him. They'...
Kevin Garnett gives the best interviews, especially as the years go by. Well mix Garnett and the bold dresser that us Craig Sager and you have a righteous television experience. Sager is known for his loud wardrobe choices and Garnett for his loudness; mix ‘em together and what do you have? A Christmas ornament.The post Kevin Garnett to Craig Sager: “You look like a Christmas...
Kevin Garnett plans to retire as a member of the Celtics.
There is so much to look forward to during the NBA's All-Star break. The dunk contest, three-point shootout, the celebrities in the arena, the best-of-the-best NBA player's on one court and of course, what incredibly outlandish suit TNT's Craig Sager will wear.
For years Sager has worn some crazy looking suits which run the gambit of fashion mistakes. From mismatched...
Kevin Garnett has said it again and again — he will not waive his no-trade clause. Still, despite the Big Ticket’s best efforts, the Celtics continue to be linked in trade rumor after trade rumor involving their big man.
KG has reiterated his allegiance to the Celtics time and time again, but general manager Danny Ainge might be wishing that Garnett wouldn’t.
After all, Boston...
Just five weeks ago, Carmelo Anthony hated Kevin Garnett. We all know the story; Anthony and Garnett were going at it in a tightly contested game back on Jan. 8. It got chippy and the two started jawing and before long, Garnett went below the belt like he normally does and allegedly said that Anthony’s wife “tastes like Honey Nut Cheerios.”
Now I’m not married but if...
STAYING IN BEANTOWN
Kevin Garnett has been mentioned in trade conversations, but the veteran All-Star forward says he will not waive his no-trade clause.
Kevin Garnett didn’t exactly make the dramatic All-Star game exit many Celtics fans had been hoping for when he cryptically leaked last week that this would be his last appearance in the event. He did take the floor as the starting center for the Eastern Conference, however, fulfilling his due diligence in the lineup and saluting the fans.
The big man does, after all, have a surging...
Sweet Jesus, it's 1 am on a Friday night, yet the rumors keep rolling in. But this time is a little different. This time it's Woj (esteemed Yahoo NBA insider Adrian Wojnarowski). The proposed deal: Kevin Garnett for Clippers PG Eric Bledsoe and C DeAndre Jordan.
Here's an excerpt from Woj's article (co-written with Marc Spears) (link).
The Boston Celtics and Los...
I love how they keep on wanting Bolt to give props to other teams and players, but it's all about Kevin Garnett and the Celtics for the world's fastest man.
Big thanks to Celtics Lifer Tia Compenser for the video tip.
"Leave me alone Blake!"
Marc Stein of ESPN has a column up that touches on many of the trade rumors and rumblings around the league. A few quotes from it really jump out at me regarding the "Kevin Garnett lives in Malibu and is friends with Chauncey Billups so maybe he could be traded to the Clippers for DeAndre Jordan and Eric Bledsoe" story that won'...
The Herald’s Mark Murphy offers this update on the Celtics need for a guard:
The Celtics are reportedly on the verge of signing a guard to a 10-day contract — a hedge in case a more desirable player is available in another two weeks — though management was still sifting through possibilities.
Shelvin Mack, the Maine Red Claws point guard, remained with his team on its road...
With the NBA trade deadline knocking on the doorstep, the Boston Celtics have a ton of decisions to weigh in, which could essentially make this the toughest deadline in Celtics history.
Currently, the Celtics sit in utter silence after storming rumors consisting of Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce this past week, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t talking trading places with players...
