Kevin Garnett

  1. Kevin Garnett gets all chatty after running the Bulls out

    Dec 4, 2010, 2:00 PM EST

    Chicago Bulls v Boston Celtics

    Had the Bulls beaten the Celtics last night, this post would not be happening. Kevin Garnett personifies almost all the things we want our athletes to be and almost none of the things we want our fellow citizens in every day life and public figures to be. What I mean is that Garnett’s a good…

  2. Shaq calls Celtics “the best team I’ve been on”

    Does anybody take digs at the places he’s been quite like Shaquille O’Neal? The latest was a comment, courtesy WEEI,  sure to go over well in Boston and no so well in Los Angeles and Miami. “This is a great team. The best team I’ve been on. They’ve got a lot of weapons on this…

  3. Quote of the day: Shaq is like laundry

    Nov 24, 2010, 9:06 AM EST

    Kevin Garnett, Shaquille O'Neal

    “Shaq is like paradise, man. You ever wash your sheets and then go outside and hang them out, and the sun dries them? You ever smell the sheets? That’s what Shaq is, Shaq is like.” —Kevin Garnett, talking about what it’s like to play with Shaquille O’Neal, via the Boston Herald.

  4. What is the deal with the Celtics and superstar-less teams?

    Nov 20, 2010, 12:30 PM EST

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Boston Celtics

    There’s something bizarre with these Celtics. They have three losses, and two of them are to teams without or missing their superstar. First they lost to the Cavaliers, which is odd since they don’t have you-know-who anymore, after they beat you-know-who the night before. But it was a back-to-back so maybe it was just one…

  5. Everyone is re-writing draft history with Oden/Durant, except Doc Rivers

    Nov 19, 2010, 10:33 AM EST

    NBA Finals Game 6:  Boston Celtics v Los Angeles Lakers

    You hear this all the time around the NBA now, especially the last couple days, “I wanted to pick Kevin Durant over Greg Oden if we had the chance.” It’s crap. At the time almost everybody in the league was going to take Oden. It wasn’t close. True, there was a debate, and sports talk…

  6. Defending Rajon Rondo

    Nov 15, 2010, 2:27 PM EST

    Rajon Rondo

    Rajon Rondo’s outlandish point guard-ery this season is even more remarkable considering his obvious offensive flaw; Rondo is five years into his NBA career and yet his jump shot is still weaning. There are other wildly successful NBA players with holes in their games, but in some cases, there are institutional limits to prevent teams…

  7. Joakim Noah on Kevin Garnett” “I don’t like him”

    Nov 11, 2010, 9:40 AM EST

    Chicago Bulls v Boston Celtics, Game 2

    There was a time — old timers will tell you a better time, I’m not so convinced — when the players didn’t shake hands before the game, didn’t hang out together and workout together in the offseason, didn’t know or really like each other. Joakim Noah is a bit of a throwback that way, as…

  8. Quote of the day: Kevin Garnett is a little Chihuahua

    “I’d love to see Charlie (Villanueva) and KG (Kevin Garnett) in the ring. I’d pick Charlie  I’ve seen KG get his ass whupped. … He’s always barking, and when it’s time to get physical, he’s always been a little chihuahua…. I ain’t never seen him bark up a bear. He’s always being a little chihuahua.…

  9. It’s Danny Ainge’s turn to stick up for Kevin Garnett

    Nov 5, 2010, 9:12 AM EST

    Cleveland Cavaliers v Boston Celtics

    Just when you were hoping the whole Kevin Garnett/Charlie Villanueva/”cancer patient” controversy had run its course, Celtics General Manager Danny Ainge jumps in the fay. Ainge has a weekly radio show on WEEI in Boston and — shockingly — backed his player Garnett 100 percent, as transcribed by ESPNBoston. “There’s one thing that I know…

  10. Rivers defends Garnett, adds that in-game comments shouldn’t be tweeted

    Nov 3, 2010, 11:14 PM EST

    NBA Finals Game 6:  Boston Celtics v Los Angeles Lakers

    Not shockingly, Doc Rivers stuck up for his star Kevin Garnett in comments made before the Celtics took on the Bucks. Last night, Detroit’s Charlie Villanueva accused Garnett of calling him a “cancer patient” during the matchup between the two. Garnett denied this. Doc basically sounded like our own Ira Winderman with his comments to…

  11. Winderman: Villanueva violated “keep it on the court” code

    Nov 3, 2010, 9:11 PM EST

    Kevin Garnett

    For a moment, let’s move past the Big C, because that part of this Kevin Garnett debate is reprehensible, if uttered in any context. Instead consider something a bit more germane to these sports pages. And that’s Part B. Charlie Villanueva violated a prime tenet of the game and well could find himself receiving a…

  12. Kevin Garnett denies calling Villanueva “cancer patient”

    Nov 3, 2010, 4:44 PM EST

    Image (1) Garnett_solo-thumb-250x166-13062.jpg for post 2376

    Kevin Garnett has responded to Charlie Villanueva’s claim that Garnett called him a “cancer patient” during Tuesday night’s game. In a statement released through the Celtics, Garnett denies making the statement. “I am aware there was a major miscommunication regarding something I said on the court last night. My comment to Charlie Villanueva was in…

  13. Kevin Garnett talks trash. The league should do nothing about it.

    Nov 3, 2010, 4:01 PM EST

    Orlando Magic v Boston Celtics, Game 4

    If you’ve ever sat near the court for a Kevin Garnett Celtics game, you know this — the man talks a lot of trash. A lot. Some genuinely nasty, personal stuff. He uses it to intimidate and to fire himself up. Charlie Villanueva thought KG crossed the line last night and called him on it,…

  14. Charlie Villanueva says Garnett called him a “cancer patient,” and CV is ready to fight

    Nov 3, 2010, 8:10 AM EST

    Kevin Garnett

    Kevin Garnett talks a lot of smack on the court, sometimes going a little over the top with it all. The Piston’s Charlie Villanueva has had enough and tweeted about it after the game. KG talks a lot of crap, he’s prob never been in a fight, I would love to get in a ring…

  15. What is up with Austin Daye?

    Nov 2, 2010, 12:31 PM EST

    Daye_dunk

    There are a lot of things not working for the Detroit Pistons right now. A lot. But Austin Daye may be the most glaring. Last season coming primarily off the bench he gave them a solid if not spectacular 13 minutes a game, but you could see the athleticism and potential. Then in the preseason…

  16. Delonte West on locker room fight: nothing to see here, move along

    Nov 1, 2010, 8:20 AM EST

    Delonte West

    Delonte West addressed the media on a locker-room brawl with Von Wafer last week, saying it’s all good. Don’t know why you’re all worked up about it. It was no big deal that I just jumped a guy in the locker room. Not sure I can swallow all of that, but are the quotes, via…

  17. Cleveland’s healing process begins with a green light

    Oct 28, 2010, 2:25 AM EST

    Boston Celtics v Cleveland Cavaliers

    In the five stages of grief, the last is acceptance. Let’s back up. The folks in Cleveland are a long way from that. It’s going to take a few seasons and likely a new star for Cleveland to move past this summer, “The Decision,” and everything that came with it. They’ll be booing LeBron well…

  18. Birth of a rivalry: a Heat-Celtics primer

    Oct 26, 2010, 1:36 PM EST

    Miami Heat Media Day

    The Boston Celtics defeated the Cleveland Cavaliers in last year’s season opener, 95-89. They would go on to defeat the Cavaliers in six games, paving the way for Cleveland’s end as a contender. They began LeBron James’ year by beating him and they ended his year by beating him. Coincidence? Okay, yeah, probably so. When…

  19. Shaq plans to ride Boston subway dressed as a woman. And play some basketball.

    Oct 25, 2010, 10:43 AM EST

    Oneal_peace

    Shaquille O’Neal is a hit in Boston. His big, playful personality has been embraced by the city — did you see how many people came out to watch him be a statue? Next up? Going on the “T” (Boston’s quaint subway system) dressed as a woman named Shaquita, he told WEEI. “That’s a good idea.…

  20. Dwyane Wade practices, Miami Triad returned to full power

    Oct 23, 2010, 5:14 PM EST

    triad

    Yes, Mike Miller is on the shelf. And yes, they are bringing in Jerry Stackhouse to fill a role on the team. But in South Beach, as Dwyane Wade said this morning, the “band is back together.” “We’re excited about having the band back together,” Wade said after the two-hour, non-contact session. “It felt great.…

  21. Celtics won’t attack LeBron James at point guard

    Oct 23, 2010, 1:00 PM EST

    lebronboston

    Let’s take a second here, because, guys. You guys. We have actual basketball-related stuff that actually matters to talk about. I know. I’m excited too. Okay, back to your regularly scheduled program. Turns out the Celtics have been talking a little bit about how they’re going to defend the Heat come Thursday’s opener. Particularly, the…

  22. On the eve of the season, one more trip back to the finals

    Oct 22, 2010, 8:35 PM EST

    The last Friday night before the season starts. A chance to kick back, relax and take one more walk through last year’s NBA finals. Before it officially becomes history and we start watching the path to the next championship.

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

    Oct 18, 2010, 2:55 PM EST

    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…

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

    Oct 14, 2010, 11:20 AM EST

    garnett_ejected

    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…

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

    Oct 13, 2010, 10:10 PM EST

    Image (1) Garnett_referee-thumb-250x166-13248.jpg for post 6248

    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…
