We’ve heard so much bull[bleep] about Kevin Garnett’s injury situation over the past two seasons that it’s become hard to distinguish what’s true and what isn’t.
Even so, it was nice to read this blog post in the Globe and see Doc Rivers talk about KG’s injury being different from last season’s.
“It’s good to have Kevin back,” coach Doc Rivers said. “It’s more important to see him feeling better after the game, going overtime, and (playing) a lot of minutes. It’s a good sign for us.
“Someone asked if there was a minute restriction — there wasn’t. Again this was something totally different than last year’s injury, that’s why we were really not concerned about the minutes. Our whole concern with him, minute-wise, was more conditioning. It had nothing to do with the knee.”
Whether Doc’s still feeding us garbage or not, I don’t know. But I DO know that it’s soothing to hear him repeat that it’s a completely different injury than last year’s…
Just — due to the Celtics’ Belichick-ian record in disclosing KG’s injuries — not too soothing. Stay healthy, Kev.
Update: Shelden Williams threw down a thunderous dunk on KG in today’s practice. But KG returned the favor with a couple jumpers…
