Quote of the Day: Apparently Kevin Garnett is radioactive

“The funny thing about KG is that there’s really no story, because there’s a 24/7 continuous loop. You couldn’t even break it up into stories. You’ll be on the team plane at three or four in the morning, you’ll hear this noise nonstop — it’s someone talking at the top of his voice — and it’s KG. From the moment you take off to the moment you land, whatever hour of the day, he’s talking to rookies, he’s telling stories. He’s just nonstop. there’s some sort of nuclear reactor inside him that never quits.”

—Celtics owner and CEO Wyc Grousbeck, who appeared on CNBC’s Squawk Box and talked the business of basketball, and of course the Celtics. WEEI has he transcript (hat tip to CelticsBlog).

So, basically Kevin Garnett is like Iron Man, just without the sweet suit.

    So annoying. 4am and talking at the top of his voice on an airplane? Glad I’m not a Celtics rookie.

      Couldn’t be any less entertaining than watching Kobe and Nash keep D12 from planking on the plane.

    The green and white suit is still pretty sweet!

    KG is cool. I bet a lot of guys who are reserved toward him, would warm up to him if they ever encountered him, AWAY from a basketball court, because we all know how passionate (to put it nicely) Garnett gets when you play against the man.

    Loud mouthed punk. Can’t wait to see Bynum abuse his ass on the court this season in the Atlantic Division.

      You’ll be waiting longer than you think.

        What? The SECOND game instead of the first? Bynum will abuse Garnett’s narrow ass.
