To be perfectly honest I didn't do enough with the "Best of Series" this summer with Rondo, Kevin, and Paul. I started it before Danny decided to blow this team up. It's been kind of hard sometimes looking back. I want to move and ahead, and looking back is good, and it's a healing process. When you talk about these guys you don't want to sound like a br...Read Full Post »

The Knicks staged a surprisingly competitive fight against the Celtics in New York, but in the end it was not enough. With the two teams tied up at 105 each and just 9.3 seconds left on the clock in OT, double overtime looked like a distinct possibility. But Paul Pierce found Kevin Garnett open and the Celtics forward launched a shot to win the game as time ...Read Full Post »

It could be the last minute of the game,or the NBA Finals no less. It doesn't matter for KG when it comes to taking any advantage over his competition. This has become the 'KG'. When he first came to Boston, and started this. I always kind of remembered him doing it in Minnesota, but not like he did in Boston. It's a practice of KG's I'll miss. I hope you en...Read Full Post »

Some moments during the past 6 years you can remember everything about it. This game was an ulgy showing with the Celtics down 27. I remember I put my TV on mute, because I was tired of hearing about how bad the Celtics are. I was watching the game, but in complete silence. The Celtics season didn't start out as expected. They were 7-9 heading into that game, and they were without Rondo during that...Read Full Post »

Kevin Garnett scored the first seven points of the second overtime, boosting the West to a 155-145 win in the first double-OT All-Star Game. KG was named MVP and finished with 37 points, the most since Michael Jordan's 40 in 1988. In his final mid season classic, MJ nearly won the game when he hit a jumper late in the first OT. This was one of my all-time favorite All-star games if not ...Read Full Post »

I thought it was fitting picking this as a top moment in KG's career.Haslem knocks KG down, and to show us that he's okay. KG elaborates with a set of pushups. Rondo also adopted this in game 6. KG shows again his influence.

I wonder if Mchale knew what he had then. Kevin Mchale had a feeling, and KG has become one of the best power forwards ever.

This is stuff you don't see everyday in the NBA. It's heartbreaking,and touching at the same time.

Something that most of us avoid at any cost became a phrase of fire and heart. It became one of those moments when you ask the question where were you when that happened. A bar fight brokeout on a night in early 2012. The lockout season was full of moments of the Celtics not giving up. In most seasons the Celtics follow that mantra. But in 2012 the Celtics bunch bounced...Read Full Post »

You can see the nightmares replaying in his eyes. I can imagine Kevin trying to sleep with his eyes open because the thought of seeing the ball hit the rim instead of seeing hit the bottom of the net is torture. KG was that artist late up at night who couldn't get the brush to do what he wanted. KG was th...Read Full Post »
