Kevin Garnett

  1. You’ll never believe it, but Kevin Garnett picked up a technical for absurd behavior

    Feb 5, 2011, 11:00 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Dallas Mavericks

    I like that we get to spend our weekends like this, don’t you? Each weekend you can get up, have your coffee, read the paper that you don’t get because you get the internet so why would you get a paper? And we go over what jackass thing Kevin Garnett did the night before. It’s…

  2. Yes, Doc Rivers plans to play his four Celtics All-Stars at once

    Feb 4, 2011, 10:52 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Phoenix Suns

    Doc Rivers has a strategic advantage come the All-Star Game — Rajon Rondo, Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and Ray Allen. Four Celtics. Throw those four out at the same time and you have guys familiar with each other and guys who can run more complex offensive sets (or defensive help rotations) than the vanilla ones…

  3. Suns Alvin Gentry: I lost a little respect for Kevin Garnett

    Feb 4, 2011, 9:04 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Phoenix Suns

    Remember a week ago when Kevin Garnett pulled a couple bush-league moves, tapping Channing Frye in the, um, groin area and stepping under him as he came down from a jump shot? Both moves intended to bully and intimidate. Both pretty cheap. He got ejected for it (but no suspension). Alvin Gentry remembers, and said…

  4. Quote of the Day: Kevin Garnett doesn’t like anything Lakers

    Jan 31, 2011, 8:10 AM EDT

    Kevin Garnett

    “You got a better chance of catching Bin Laden.” —Kevin Garnett to a Lakers ballboy who asked for his autograph on a ball, according to Marc Spears of Yahoo (via twitter). Not very cool, but very KG. Andrew Bogut tweeted later that KG said worse to a Bucks ballboy. Don’t worry, when asked about this…

  5. Celtics Lakers: Choose your own finish as Celtics out-draw Lakers late

    Jan 30, 2011, 10:29 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Los Angeles Lakers

    The talk this week was all about clutch. And in the closing minutes, the Celtics were a clutch beast of unstoppable force, coming together for the most cohesive showing in a big game setting they’ve shown this season, right when they needed it most, at the same time as the Lakers came unraveled, possession by…

  6. As long as you’re not Kevin Garnett, Stu Jackson probably had discipline for you this weekend

    Jan 30, 2011, 12:20 PM EDT

    New Official NBA Ball Unveiled

    The NBA today fined Doc Rivers $15,000 for failing to leave the court in a “timely manner” following his ejection from the Suns game last Friday. Josh Smith was fined $25,000 for making an obscene gesture in the Hawks’ fracas-filled game against New York Friday. The fines come a day after Jackson suspended both Marvin…

  7. 10 things about Modern Celtics-Lakers XX

    Jan 29, 2011, 9:12 PM EDT

    NBA Finals Game 7:  Boston Celtics v Los Angeles Lakers

    There are regular-season games, there are important regular-season games, and then there is Celtics-Lakers. On Sunday the two contenders will meet for the 20th time since the start of the 2007-2008 season, when the rivalry was truly renewed as Andrew Bynum emerged and the Lakers became good enough to justify trading for Pau Gasol, and…

  8. Kevin Garnett won’t be suspended for hitting Channing Frye in the junk, because that makes sense

    Jan 29, 2011, 5:42 PM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Boston Celtics

    Marc Spears of Yahoo! Sports reports that Kevin Garnett will not be suspended for tapping Channing Frye in the groin area Friday night. I’m sorry, what? Look, I get that Channing Frye probably sold this thing a little, and then popped up awful quick. And I understand that Garnett is a major star in a…

  9. KG hits Channing Frye in the junk, gets ejected

    Jan 29, 2011, 8:00 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Phoenix Suns

    So, in the midst of the Celtics’ abominable debacle against the Suns last night (hello, back-to-backs), things kind of got out of hand. Doc Rivers was tossed for continually arguing calls. The Celtics were getting rolled by the Suns, and then, well, this happened. As to whether or not this was a foul, I only…

  10. These should be your All-Star Game reserves

    Jan 28, 2011, 5:20 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Boston Celtics

    The fans have spoken — the 10 NBA All-Star Game starters have been chosen. And as we said before, good on ya. The fans did well this time around. The way this works is the fans pick the five starters, then the coaches (or more likely an assistant coach, or the video guy, or the…

  11. Kevin Garnett has special shoes just for the Lakers

    Jan 28, 2011, 8:12 AM EDT

    Garnett Beat LA shoe

    It’s how the league rolls now — big star in a big game, then you need the special edition shoes. Lakers vs. Celtics Sunday, that is big. So Kevin Garnett, what you got? KG and Chinese shoe company Anta teamed up for the subtly named “Beat L.A.” shoe. Notice on the tongue of the shoe…

  12. Winderman: Will coaches pick four Celtics for Eastern All-Star reserves?

    Jan 27, 2011, 3:48 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Boston Celtics, Game 6

    Thursday night merely is the show. No actual work is involved, as the results of fan balloting for All-Star starters are revealed. Then conference coaches take over from there, having to fill out ballot for the seven reserves in each conference (Commissioner David Stern selects replacements for any injured players). This year, it will be…

  13. Celtics’ Glen Davis is just fine coming off the bench

    Jan 21, 2011, 4:48 PM EDT

    Houston Rockets v Boston Celtics

    Glen Davis loves being a Celtic. Loves that he is a key contributor to a contending team. Loves coming off the bench. But when Kevin Garnett was out recently, Davis stepped into the starting role — and struggled. He admitted to Paul Flannery at WEEI that once he moved in with the first five he…

  14. Magic GM on Celtics: “They act tough. They’re not really tough.”

    Jan 19, 2011, 11:36 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Charlotte Bobcats

    To borrow a line from Inigo in The Princess Bride, “You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.” The word of the day is tough. As in who is tough in the NBA? Magic General Manager Otis Smith does not think the Boston Celtics qualify, as he…

  15. Video: Kevin Garnett saves the day

    Jan 18, 2011, 8:43 AM EDT

    Kevin Garnett

    It was a fitting end to the Celtics and Magic — if Kevin Garnett had not been back in this game, the Celtics would not have won. Less for any specific play he made than the different, more intense energy the Celtics have when he is on the court. This was the best game of…

  16. Baseline to Baseline recaps: The Martin Luther King Day games

    Jan 18, 2011, 8:33 AM EDT

    Ray Allen

    What you missed while listening to the “I have a Dream” speech… The Lakers defeating the Thunder in a contest that looked a lot like last-year’s playoffs was our game of the night. Celtics 109, Magic 106: Kevin Garnett is back. Is he ever. It was a full slate of 13 NBA games Monday and…

  17. Garnett says Celtics should learn lesson from Patriots loss

    Jan 17, 2011, 2:57 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Boston Celtics, Game 4

    You’d think fine people in Boston would be used to losing sporting events to teams from New York by now. But apparently not as most of New England is in stunned silence about the Patriots loss to the loudmouth New York Jets on Saturday. Kevin Garnett, writing on his blog in China (for his shoe…

  18. Kevin Garnett set to return Monday against Magic

    Jan 16, 2011, 6:30 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Orlando Magic

    The Celtics have been struggling without their defensive and emotional leader, Kevin Garnett, since he was sidelined with a calf injury (which looked a lot worse at first glance). Garnett provides them offensive balance in the post as well as his patented defensive lunacy. He’s been expected back for about a week now, but of…

  19. Why did Stoudemire get so many All-Star votes? NY star power.

    Jan 13, 2011, 10:00 PM EDT

    Amar'e Stoudemire

    There are a lot of perks to being the star of the New York Knicks. For one, every game you get to see what Clyde Frazier is wearing up close. You get to hang with Spike Lee and ask him to explain why he made “She Hate Me.” You probably never pay for a slice…

  20. Fans send Rajon Rondo, Kevin Garnett to bench in latest All-Star balloting

    Jan 13, 2011, 1:45 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Detroit Pistons, Game 6

    Apparently Boston sports fans have been so focused on what Tom Brady is going to do to the Jets secondary they forgot to vote for the NBA All-Star Game starters. How else do you explain the latest release of NBA All-Star voting which drops two Celtics from the starting lineup? Chicago’s Derrick Rose has leapfrogged…

  21. Kevin Garnett out Wednesday, likely Friday as well

    Jan 12, 2011, 11:03 PM EDT

    Garnett injured

    This was the week that Kevin Garnett was expected back from the calf injury that sidelined him two weeks ago. But we all know the overly-cautious MO of the Celtics when it comes to injuries in the regular season, so we should have expected it might take longer. Along those lines, Garnett did not suit…

  22. Heat take over top spot in East, Celtics should be worried

    Jan 11, 2011, 9:40 AM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Boston Celtics

    Last season it was all about Boston being healthy. Doc Rivers sacrificed games — Boston was 11-11 in their last 22 — to get healthy and have players rested for the playoffs. Boston fell to the four seed, but Rivers got the physically ready veteran team he wanted. They came within a quarter of getting…

  23. Garnett questionable for Monday, blogs about frustrations

    Jan 10, 2011, 12:01 PM EDT

    Garnett injured

    Boston is one of the few teams playing on Monday night, with the NBA not scheduling much against the BCS championship game. Actually, Boston hopes that its game against Houston is lower scoring than Auburn vs. Oregon. Kevin Garnett did not go through shootaround Monday morning. While he is still officially questionable for Monday’s game,…

  24. Celtics’ Garnett could be back Monday; Perkins three weeks away

    Jan 7, 2011, 8:45 PM EDT

    Kevin Garnett

    Doc Rivers had all sorts of good news for Celtics fans in his pregame press conference on Friday night before his team took on the Raptors. The first, slid in to his comments almost casually, is that Kevin Garnett could be back from his calf injury on Monday. That would fit with the two-week timetable…

  25. Latest All-Star voting has Amar’e Stoudemire, Derrick Rose on the bench

    Jan 6, 2011, 1:50 PM EDT

    Stoudemire_frustrated

    What is the matter with New York? And what about you, Chicago? Not enough passion and votes there to push the very deserving Amar’e Stoudemire and Derrick Rose into All-Star Game starting spots in the Eastern Conference? Well, it’s not that simple, as they would have to unseat two popular Boston stars to get the…
