Kevin Garnett is back, and with his return the Celtics get perhaps the best defensive power forward in the NBA. Garnett always seems to be in the right spot, always chats with his teammates to let them know where to be, and never seems to miss a rotation.
But don’t rely on Garnett to describe his defensive IQ. (Via the Boston Herald)
“The impact that I can give this team is tremendous. I bring a lot of energy and a semi-high IQ when it comes to defense. I look for guys. I get guys open. I do some of the small things that I think we’ve been lacking some of these last games.”
A semi-high defensive IQ? For Kevin Garnett?
That’s like Lebron James saying he has a “semi-high” vertical leap.
