Kevin garnett

  • Kevin Garnett and Mickael Pietrus are polar opposites. While one could argue that Garnett is the most intense player to ever step foot on an NBA court, Pietrus is one of the leagues most jocular players.

  • MIAMI -- A week ago, the Boston Celtics were too old. Three games later, theyre one win away from the NBA Finals. And Miami -- the team that was constructed with hopes of supplanting Boston as the power in the Eastern Conference -- is suddenly in big trouble.

  • That put Kevin Garnett in a precarious position. The Celtics center burnished his reputation on toughness as much as skill. He pounds his chest and screams and does push-ups on the court. His trash talk can get downright abusive, but its part of his image.

  • Less than three months ago the Boston Celtics were on the verge of breaking up their Big Three of Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen. But the March 15 trade deadline came and went.
  • (USA Today)
  • When the NBA lockout wasnt settled, the players disbanded and sued the league and Boston Celtics power forward Kevin Garnett started missing his $833,333 bi-monthly paychecks. But the prospect of no season likely hurt Scott Noguiera more than Garnett.
