Kevin Garnett had some choice words for the scribes of Boston. From I am a GM:
“You called us ‘old, ‘over’ …. I read some of your pathetic articles and some of your lousy analysis, it’s opinion. I mean, obviously, you don’t know what drives us. We thank y’all for those articles. ‘appreciate it. Because it lit a fire under us.”
Boston is full of motivated old people, y’all. I could make a joke about the “fire” that burned last night as the Celtics started Avery Bradley, Keyon Dooling, Greg Stiemsma, Brandon Bass and Sasha Pavlovic. Instead, I’ll just note how important it is for a team as old as Boston to find some motivation for one final run. Especially in a shortened season where there really isn’t a clear-cut favorite to win the title.
