When Kevin Garnett loses in the NBA postseason, I imagine he locks himself in a 4 x 12 room, transforms into something resembling the Incredible Hulk, except harrier, howls at the moon continuously, and drinks nothing but V8 juice all summer just so he can feel as much pain as possible.
Given how much he loathes his opponents (remember, he deleted Ray Allen’s phone number this summer), Garnett cannot fathom how Kevin Durant worked out with LeBron James during the NBA offseason. (Sports on Earth)
“You only get so many chances to win the whole thing,” Garnett told Leigh Montville of Sports on Earth. “You have to do it when you can. We came so close, three years ago against L.A. Seventh game. Last year against Miami, seventh game … pissed is a good word. Yeah, I was pissed. Miami goes against Oklahoma City after us and just blows them out. Then Kevin Durant goes and works out with LeBron. What’s that about? Yeah, pissed.”
Go read the whole story about Garnett on Sports on Earth. It’s really quite good.
P.S. — The Boston Celtics are playing real basketball tonight. I’ve been hearing imaginary trumpets inside of my head all morning. I wrote something for MassLive about the respect both teams have for each other. Check it if you love me.
