Forgive me for not posting anything yet this morning. I’ve been working on an Avery Bradley post and finding out that it’s very difficult to properly describe the way I feel about him.
While I struggle with my by-now-probably-very-butchered opinion on Bradley (which will likely publish sometime around 4:30 or 5, or whenever my writer’s block of sorts goes away), do yourself a favor and read Ben Rohrbach’s piece about Kevin Garnett and the Celtic way. Here’s a brief quote from it. (WEEI)
“There are no I’s. There are no You’s. It’s a We. It’s an Our. It’s a They. It’s an Us,” said Garnett. “The first thing you have to have in here is that you have to understand what you’re coming into, understand that being a Celtic is bigger than anybody in this locker room. You’re carrying on tradition. You have to have a work ethic. You have to care about the next guy beside you. If you can’t and if you don’t, then you’re not here. It’s the culture here.”
It’s that simple?
“It’s the only thing,” he added. “It’s a Doc Rivers thing. It’s a Celtics thing. It’s a Boston thing.”
