Kevin Garnett

  1. Doc Rivers misses practice for minor throat surgery, will return soon

    Oct 18, 2010, 2:55 PM EDT

    NBA Finals Game 6:  Boston Celtics v Los Angeles Lakers

    Doc Rivers is day-to-day. The official Celtics twitter account noted that Rivers missed Monday’s Celtics practice to have a minor throat operation on Sunday. That is to relieve pressure on his vocal chords, according to Chris Mannix at Sports Illustrated. Lawrence Frank ran the practice for the Celtics. Rivers could be back at practice as…

  2. Tommy Heinsohn not a fan of the “stupid” new NBA technical rules

    Kevin Garnett got tossed last night for something said in a conversation with the referee during a technical foul shot. Well away from the play. Two techs right on top of one another. As you might imagine, old-school Celtics broadcaster Tommy Heinsohn was not a fan (thanks to Mike Prada of SBN for finding the…

  3. Kevin Garnett tossed from preseason game for some magical words

    Oct 13, 2010, 10:10 PM EDT

    We don’t know what Kevin Garnett said to referee Kane Fitzgerald. If you’ve ever watched Bull Durham you can take a guess, but we don’t know. Whatever it was, it was some magical words that got Garnett tossed with two quick technicals from a preseason game against the Knicks at Madison square Garden. In the…

  4. Quote of the day: Kevin Garnett is a KFC combo meal.

    KFC_meal

    “Combo’s the word. Like a combo meal? KFC Combo meal. You gotta get a two piece, plus extra biscuits, to describe what he do.” —DeLonte West, trying to explain what Kevin Garnett brings to the Celtics (via CelticsBlog)

  5. If Kevin Garnett wants to help you, you’d better listen

    Oct 12, 2010, 2:03 PM EDT

    Kevin Garnett

    Sure, he can snarl and pound his chest and be all kinds of in-your-face intense. And that’s just in practice. But Kevin Garnett wants to help out the bigs that come in to Celtics camp. You had just better listen, as Doc Rivers warned future Celtics big men (and you too, Luke Harangody), via the…

  6. The Celtics bond in the shadow of the Green Monster

    Oct 10, 2010, 9:21 AM EDT

    fenway

    The Celtics are getting back to that whole “chemistry first” thing that took them so far in 2008. That’s been a primary focus for them at camp and in the preseason, trying to get close to one another like the “Ubuntu” crowd was two years ago.  They’ve spent a lot of nights just doing team…

  7. Kevin Garnett admits he's an ass%&@$ (plus talks Heat and losing Game 7)

    Oct 5, 2010, 1:49 PM EDT

    Kevin Garnett is a private person. Not unreasonable, but on a team that now has Nate Robinson and Shaquille O’Neal, it stands as a stark contrast. The KG we see is the one on the court — focused and intense. He makes no apologies for that. And if you want to use another, more direct…

  8. Kobe’s jersey biggest seller in Europe

    Sep 30, 2010, 10:43 AM EDT

    Kobe’s the man, doesn’t matter what side of the pond you are on. The NBA released the top jerseys sold in Europe and Kobe Bryant tops the list. As he does in the United States. And China. And everywhere jerseys are sold (except Boston). This is Kobe’s third straight year atop the Europe list. Rounding…

  9. Kevin Garnett's intensity too much for Rondo — even at media day

    Sep 28, 2010, 9:00 PM EDT

    Pretty classic video from Celtics media day, with Rajon Rondo trying to do an interview while Kevin Garnett goes, well, Kevin Garnett in the other room. (hat tip to Trey “where you goin?” Kerby at Ball Don’t Lie)

  10. Kevin Garnett is rested and healthy. Fear the Celtics.

    Sep 25, 2010, 5:00 PM EDT

    Kevin Garnett is still the beating heart and key player for the Celtics. Ray Allen and Paul Pierce are crucial. Rajon Rondo’s importance grows daily. Kendrick Perkins and the O’Neals matter in the middle. Donkey and Shrek matter off the bench. But last season, Garnett’s health determined the Celtics fate. Which is why this quote…

  11. Overtly complain about a call, get a technical. It's now the law.

    Sep 24, 2010, 8:30 AM EDT

    Kobe Bryant does it. LeBron James does it. Kevin Garnett does it. Much of the league does it. Rasheed Wallace did it like he was playing down at Venice Beach in Los Angeles. Players complain about calls. Or non-calls. They throw their hands in the air in disgust even at the most obvious of calls.…

  12. Kobe Bryant remains top selling NBA jersey in China

    Sep 23, 2010, 12:05 PM EDT

    Kobe is big all over the globe. That includes China, where for the fourth year in a row he tops the league in jersey sales, according to the league. Rounding out the top five are LeBron James, Dwight Howard, Kevin Garnett, and Derrick Rose. The next five are Chris Paul, Paul Pierce, Deron Williams, Ray…

  13. NBA Season Preview: The Boston Celtics

    Sep 15, 2010, 12:44 PM EDT

    Last season: 50-32 during the regular season, but 17-17 down the stretch as key players got rest and healthy for the playoffs. Then they played like the 2008 Celtics in the postseason and advanced all the way to Game 7 of the NBA Finals before falling. Head Coach: Doc Rivers, back for what may well…

  14. Brandon Jennings: "I guess in three years, me, Tyreke Evans, and Stephen Curry should team up, too."

    Aug 29, 2010, 11:00 AM EDT

    Brandon Jennings has weighed in to TMZ on all the team-ups going on and it’s about what you’d expect. He says that all these team-ups that are going on (and he lumps Boston in with Miami) are bad because it lowers the competition, that “everyone’s trying to play together instead of competing.” He mentions he’s…

  15. Paul Pierce thinks the Celtics need some 'special time' in training camp

    Aug 22, 2010, 4:30 PM EDT

    Ubuntu. You remember Ubuntu, don’t you? The magical phrase that Doc Rivers used in 2007-2008 to bring the Celtics together under a team concept of sacrifice and unity. And though the “Ubuntu” tagline was phased out as the years went on, it’s been the formula for all the success Boston has achieved since the Big…

  16. Can Boston start an all future hall of famers lineup?

    Aug 16, 2010, 8:15 AM EDT

    We said it before — if this were 2000 the Boston Celtics would be an unstoppable force. And yes, I know Rajon Rondo would have been 14 at the time, wouldn’t have mattered with Shaq, Ray Allen, Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce in their primes. But it is a decade later, and the Celtics have…

  17. Shaq agrees to join Celtics, a smart gamble by both sides

    Aug 4, 2010, 10:22 AM EDT

    Is it going to work? Maybe. Maybe not. But it’s going to happen — Shaquille O’Neal has agreed to join the Boston Celtics according to CSN New England, ESPN’s Chris Brossard and a bunch of other sources now. This will be a one-year deal for the league minimum of $1.4 million. Is it a good…

  18. Is Shaq a possible replacement for Sheed?

    Jun 27, 2010, 8:42 AM EDT

    The Celtics are about to enter a very uncomfortable time in the life of a franchise. Their best produced roster, with four Hall of Famers (at least), a stunning young point guard, and a range of versatile bigs failed to win a championship. Ray Allen is a free agent. Paul Pierce will opt out. And…

  19. NBA finals, Lakers Celtics Game 7: Is losing Kendrick Perkins that big a deal?

    Jun 17, 2010, 11:55 AM EDT

    They’re done for, right? Boston’s defense without Kendrick Perkins in the middle — that’s a donut. A donut the Lakers are eying like Homer Simpson. Right? Not exactly. If the Lakers could roll out a healthy Andrew Bynum then yes, no Perkins would likely mean a dunk fest. But Bynum is dragging around his own…

  20. NBA finals, Lakers Celtics Game 7: In Boston's own words

    Jun 17, 2010, 10:15 AM EDT

      Doc Rivers knows somebody needs to step up and be the man tonight with Kendrick Perkins out (Sheed, we’re looking at you). Paul Pierce loves him some pressure. And Kevin Garnett loves everything but playing point guard.

  21. Tonight the end of an era for Boston

    Jun 17, 2010, 8:36 AM EDT

    It’s never going to be the same again. This era of the Boston Celtics — The Big Three era — comes to an end tonight. Win or lose. Things will be changing in Boston, evolving. When the Celtics went out and got Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen to join Paul Pierce, everyone knew this era…

  22. NBA finals, Lakers Celtics Game 6: Jordan Farmar dunks on Kevin Garnett

    Jun 16, 2010, 10:16 AM EDT

    Things we did not expect to see in Game 6: Jordan Farmar dunking on Kevin Garnett. But he did in the second quarter to bump the Lakers lead up to 20. While the lead was big, this ended up still being a big play, giving the Lakers bench that had been basically nonexistent for five…

  23. NBA finals Lakers Celtics Game 6: Blogbook thinks the C's have 'Tremors'

    Jun 16, 2010, 1:29 AM EDT

    A collection of thoughts on Lakers-Celtics Game 6… You’re all familiar with “Tremors“, right? Classic mid-90’s comedy horror film about gigantic sand-worm-like creatures that come up from the ground and suck people into the earth, eating them? Yeah, the Lakers were a lot like that tonight. They overwhelmed Boston from the beginning, and you could…

  24. NBA finals, Lakers Celtics: Who is the MVP?

    Jun 14, 2010, 3:41 PM EDT

    Usually five games into an NBA finals, we have a pretty good idea who is going to get the finals MVP award. This finals? Good luck. You’d have an easier time naming all 11 starters on the Slovenian national soccer team. Really, the only consistently good player on both sides has been Kobe Bryant. The…

  25. NBA finals, Lakers Celtics Game 5: Boston making the big plays, Lakers not defending

    Jun 14, 2010, 10:51 AM EDT

    Boston was talking about the big plays they made while the Lakers were talking about the defense they didn’t play after the game.
