Love and Hate are four letter words that tell lies, and that tell the truth. Love and Hate are four letter words that express feelings for the old and the youth. Love and Hate are four letter words that can be powerful. Love and Hate are four letter words that can be doubtful. What I don't doubt is KG's commitment to this team. He's loved by the city of Boston, and by his teammates. But love doesn't follow Garnett outside of Boston.
Garnett is "the most hated opponent in the NBA but probably the most beloved teammate in the NBA," says Scalabrine, who played with KG in Boston from 2008 to 2010. "Talk to anybody who's been on his team -- even Big Baby who he made cry in the middle of a game."
He went on to share a couple of stories describing KG's generosity with his teammates as well as his pure passion for the game of basketball.
"He wants everyone to understand that this game is not a game, it's a lifetime passion" to him, says Scalabrine.
I love the fact that KG is hated elsewhere. It makes me enjoy him even more.
