Kevin Garnett

  1. Garnett confirms he only accepted trade because Pierce was moved too

    Sep 5, 2013, 2:47 PM EDT

    Newly acquired Brooklyn Net's NBA player Kevin Garnett listens during a news conference introducing him in Brooklyn

    We pretty much knew this already — Kevin Garnett has said that he wanted to retire a Celtic, and they were about to go through a rebuilding process he didn’t want to be a part of, but Paul Pierce convinced him that going to Brooklyn to make one more run at it was a good…

  2. Brooklyn Nets taking training camp to Duke campus

    Duke University Rape Investigation Continues

    Well, Durham is much greener` than Brooklyn this time of year. No team may have more eyes on them this preseason than the Brooklyn Nets, who went out this summer with a “luxury tax be damned” attitude and added Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce, Jason Terry and Andrei Kirilenko to a roster that already had 49…

  3. Stan Van Gundy talks how rules helped change center position

    Aug 27, 2013, 3:06 PM EDT

    Orlando's Stan Van Gundy shouts during an NBA playoff basketball game in Indianapolis

    It’s something Shaquille O’Neal talks about and Dwight Howard seems to buy into more than he should — the idea that a good center should have his back to the basket in the low block and dominate from there. But the NBA doesn’t work that way way anymore because of zone defenses. When Shaq came…

  4. Kobe Bryant receives most votes from rookies asked to name their favorite player in the league

    Each year when the NBA’s freshly drafted rookies gather for the offseason photo-shoot during the summer, NBA.com surveys the group to get their thoughts on the league’s current players, as well as predictions for the future of this year’s incoming class. While several topics were covered, one of the more interesting questions posed to the…

  5. Jason Kidd wants Deron Williams to average double-digit assists next season

    Aug 25, 2013, 9:30 PM EDT

    Former NBA basketball player Kidd poses for photographers with Brooklyn Nets player Williams at a news conference in Brooklyn

    In his first year as an NBA head coach, it isn’t surprising that Jason Kidd will want to have an impact on the point guard position of the team he’ll now be running while wearing a suit on the sidelines. Kidd, one of the game’s historically great point guards in his playing days, has set…

  6. MarShon Brooks working on attacking off dribble, finishing

    Aug 23, 2013, 5:08 PM EDT

    Brooklyn Nets v Chicago Bulls - Game Three

    For his first couple seasons in the NBA, MarShon Brooks has been a potentially dynamic scoring guard who doesn’t score quite as well as you would hope. He didn’t finish all that well at the rim (a mediocre 62 percent in the restricted area) and he shot 32 percent from the midrange and 27 percent…

  7. DeAndre Jordan remains key to Clippers season

    "Call Of Duty:Ghosts" Multiplayer Global Reveal

    In a twist of fate, Doc Rivers is going to need a lot from DeAndre Jordan. Remember the Clippers were willing to ship out Jordan this summer to get Kevin Garnett and Doc Rivers — a deal that David Stern killed (you can’t trade players for coaches) but told you exactly what the Clippers think…

  8. Raymond Felton fans flames of Knicks vs. Nets “rivalry”

    Aug 19, 2013, 1:35 PM EDT

    Raymond Felton

    For my money, true rivalries are born in the playoffs — you need to play games with something genuine on the line before you have some true animosity between fan bases. For example, while it’s gotten more interesting lately, I don’t think there is a great Lakers/Clippers rivalry in Los Angeles yet. Lakers/Celtics, Lakers/Spurs, those…

    Brooklyn Nets guard Williams reacts after Chicago Bulls were fouled late in fourth quarter of Game 7 of their NBA Eastern Conference Quarterfinals basketball playoff series in New York

    The Brooklyn Nets have a lot of bonding to do — and fast. They have a veteran team that can win big if a lot of things go right for them — one of those keys is they need to bond as a unit. This isn’t the Rockets, which can take a year to have…

  10. Report: Celtics looking for assistant coach who can relate to Rondo

    Aug 19, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Rajon Rondo

    New Celtics coach Brad Stevens and Rajon Rondo may ultimately develop a great relationship. However, it’s going to take work and time — they come from very different places. Rondo is understandably feeling some culture shock with Doc Rivers, Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce all gone and an entire new coaching team and philosophy coming…

  11. Paul Pierce says there’s no question that Rajon Rondo can be ‘the man’ in Boston

    Aug 18, 2013, 5:00 PM EDT

    Paul Pierce, Rajon Rondo

    The Celtics decided it was time to rebuild for the future this offseason, so they traded away Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett to the Brooklyn Nets. The team hung onto Rajon Rondo, however, and despite many teams lining up to try to steal the All-Star point guard away, Boston maintained all along that it had…

  12. Report: In 2012, Magic had deal in place to trade Dwight Howard to the Rockets

    Aug 14, 2013, 6:17 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Orlando Magic

    Dwight Howard made the decision to join the Rockets in free agency this summer, but he could have been playing for Houston last season and skipped the largely unpleasant experience he had with the Lakers entirely. Howard was in the process of forcing his way out of Orlando late in March of 2012, but ultimately…

  13. Brook Lopez expects to be healthy for Nets’ training camp

    Aug 14, 2013, 1:00 PM EDT

    Brook Lopez, Carlos Boozer, Joakim Noah

    Brook Lopez had an excellent season for the Brooklyn Nets last year, averaging 19.4 points, 6.9 rebounds and over two blocks per game while being named to his first All-Star team. The center received bad news right after the season ended, though, and was forced to undergo a third surgery on his right foot in…

  14. Rumor: Nets to retire Jason Kidd’s number this season

    Aug 12, 2013, 1:21 PM EDT

    jason-kidd1

    The Nets have six retired numbers, including Julius Irving (32), Buck Williams (52) and Drazen Petrovic (3). Jason Kidd’s 5 should join them this season. That’s not really a shock — he’s one of the franchise’s biggest stars, led them in their glory days of trips to the NBA Finals and is now back to…

  15. Pierce says Rondo injury was first domino in Boston rebuild

    Aug 12, 2013, 12:43 PM EDT

    Paul Pierce, Rajon Rondo

    It was back in January when any hope of the Boston Celtics as contenders was completely dashed — Rajon Rondo had torn his ACL and was done for the rest of the campaign. That was also the day the first domino fell that eventually led to Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett being traded to the…

  16. Paul Pierce plans to skip Nets’ preseason game in Boston

    Aug 9, 2013, 1:58 PM EDT

    Paul Pierce

    We’re all well aware of how emotional it will be for the fans in Boston and the players alike when Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett play their first game against the Celtics as members of the Brooklyn Nets. They could get it over with fairly quickly, as the Nets are slated to play in Boston…

  17. Paul Pierce says he didn’t want to be part of rebuilding, trade was mutual

    Aug 8, 2013, 4:48 PM EDT

    Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce

    Paul Pierce will always love Boston, he’s admitted being traded out of there this summer has been hard on him. His number will eventually go into the rafters and generations of Celtics fans will tell their kids about “The Truth.” That didn’t mean he wanted to stay through a rebuild. Now Pierce and Kevin Garnett…

  18. Celtics great Robert Parish understands what it’s like to be Rajon Rondo

    Aug 8, 2013, 12:01 AM EDT

    robert parish Bulls

    Rajon Rondo is a legitimate All-Star point guard, and the only elite level talent left on a Celtics roster that will be undergoing a full-fledged rebuild beginning next season. There are questions as to whether or not Boston will (or should) retain Rondo during this transition, because at some point, you need special players to…

  19. Joe Dumars hopes Josh Smith-Greg Monroe-Andre Drummond frontcourt can take cues from Hawks and Grizzlies

    Aug 7, 2013, 6:12 PM EDT

    Josh Smith, Andre Drummond

    Which team has the best starting frontcourt in the NBA? Depending on how you value the top player compared to the depth of the trio, there are several contenders including: Nets (Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett, Brook Lopez) Bulls (Luol Deng, Carlos Boozer, Joakim Noah) Nuggets (Danilo Gallinari, Kenneth Faried, JaVale McGee) Warriors (Andre Iguodala, David…

  20. Bobcats have most back-to-backs (21), Nets have 20

    Aug 7, 2013, 10:18 AM EDT

    NBA Draft Basketball

    Just last season Jason Kidd was an older player who needed a little extra rest here and there, and got it during back-to-backs. Now he’s the head coach of a team with some older key pieces — Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce — and once he looked at the NBA schedule released Tuesday he had…

  21. Ten NBA must-watch games this season

    Aug 6, 2013, 7:24 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Miami Heat - Game Four

    The NBA schedule is out and it’s a little like Christmas Day (unless you’re a beat reporter, then it’s explain to your wife how much you’ll be gone day, which is a lot less fun). Today is the day you can really start to taste the matchups that are coming. There are more good storylines…

  23. Matt Barnes says the NBA has gotten soft

    Aug 6, 2013, 11:01 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Memphis Grizzlies - Game Six

    During the offseason NBA TV will reshow some classic games and when you look back at older eras a few things jump out at you. For one, the game was played much faster in the 1980s — the Dallas Mavericks were the slowest paced team in 1985 at 98.8 possessions a game, the Rockets were…

  24. Doc Rivers thinks trade could rejuvenate Paul Pierce

    Aug 5, 2013, 10:43 AM EDT

    Paul Pierce

    It was pretty evident Paul Pierce didn’t love the idea of being traded. It seemed a situation where he intellectually understood this as a good move for him, but after 15 years as a Celtic is was understandably emotionally hard. But Doc Rivers thinks it could be good for him. Rivers, who left Boston as…

  25. Report: Pistons still have interest in Rajon Rondo, even after acquiring Brandon Jennings

    Aug 4, 2013, 5:00 PM EDT

    Rajon Rondo, Brandon Jennings

    The Pistons were reportedly one of the first teams in line to talk with the Celtics about a potential deal for Rajon Rondo, once Boston entered a full-fledged rebuild by sending Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett to the Nets. Whether due to the offers being low while Rondo still rehabs from a torn ACL injury,…
