Kevin Garnett couldn’t play in Game Two, so he needed a place to watch it. Enter Danny Ainge’s basement. (Boston Herald)
“That’s going to be very interesting,” Kendrick Perkins said of the atmosphere at Ainge’s house. “They’re going to pick everything apart. Not the major things like rebounds and assists. They pick on if you set a screen or if you were there for the help defense. I wouldn’t want to be there.”
Paul Pierce enjoyed the thought of Garnett watching the game in Ainge’s basement. (Boston Globe)
“I could just see him in front of his TV. ‘Show! Show! Sink! Sink! Get there, Baby.’ That’s how he is when he’s on the sideline watching. Probably toward the second half, end of the third quarter, he started relaxing a little bit.’’
Because of the C’s good performance, it is assumed, Garnett was quiet enough not to wake Ainge’s daughter. At least, that’s the story Ainge told Chris Sheridan. (ESPN)
Instead, peaceful slumber was all Garnett’s toddler, Kapri, experienced as she slept upstairs while KG and some buddies retreated to Ainge’s man cave to watch Boston’s 106-77 destruction of Miami in Game 2 of their first-round series.
“He has a lot of energy watching a game, I’ll tell you that. It’s fun,” Ainge told ESPN.com. “He was up like he always is, very positive, talking all the time. And he was very excited for Baby.
“I had watched a game at his house, but he had never done it here, and we were down in the basement, so I don’t think he woke her up,” Ainge said.
But there is other news out there. Completely fabricated news. And it says that Kevin Garnett and Danny Ainge had a wonderful time, but that a neighbor called the cops on Garnett due to a raging primal scream. Again, this is completely fabricated. (Ball Don’t Lie)
KG: Actually, yeah, there is one thing: You got a basket stanchion anywhere? Like, something I could rest my head against while I contemplate the horrors of genocide and re-tie the drawstring on my shorts?
DA: Hmm — well, we’ve got the half-court out in the yard …
KG: Perfect. Be right back.
Sounds of big feet walking, a screen door opening and smacking shut, then distant, muted screaming. Just persistent screaming for about 90 seconds. Wow, that’s a lot of screaming. Then silence, followed by the open/smack of screen door, and more giant steps.
DA: Everything OK, Kev?
KG: Most definitely. Just needed to break the tension. Also, I think your neighbor is calling the cops.
DA: That’s fine — we’ll explain when they get here. Same thing happened after you made Baby cry. Man, he woke up the neighborhood when he came over. Kid was inconsolable.
