It's February 2009. The Boston Celtics are reigning NBA champions, and trying to repeat with an aging core led by three stars on the wrong side of 30. One of those players is Kevin Garnett.

This was Garnett's 14th NBA season. As such, Boston coach Doc Rivers was more concerned about keeping KG fresh for the playoffs rather than pushing him every day. So Rivers came to Garnett and told him he would not be practicing on this fine February afternoon. It did not go over well.

ESPN's Jackie MacMullan recounts Garnett's reaction, which was to essentially mimic replacement Leon Powe up and down the court until Rivers canceled practice.


Garnett, forbidden to take the floor by his own coach, had concocted his revenge: He would track the movements of power forward Leon Powe, the player who had replaced him in the lineup. As Powe pivoted, so did Garnett. As Powe leaped to grab a defensive rebound, Garnett launched himself to corral an imaginary ball. As Powe snapped an outlet pass, Garnett mimicked the motion, then sprinted up his slim sliver of sideline real estate as Powe filled the lane on the break. The players were mirror images: one on the court with a full complement of teammates, the other out of bounds, alone. Two men engaged in a bizarre basketball tango.

"KG," Rivers barked, "if you keep doing this, I'm canceling practice for the whole team. That will hurt us."

Rivers would cancel practice, but this story exists as a prime example of Garnett's legendary competitiveness and relentless attitude toward preparation. Powe summed it up well:

"'What is he doing?' That's what we were saying," Powe recalls today. "And at that point you start wondering, Is KG maybe a little crazy after all?

Those are all debatable. Plus, the Magic also have Don't Google and Vucevic who are also still young and improving.

Yep. And the fact that Lakers fans are having to argue whose rebuild is going better as between them and the Magic says a lot about where the franchise is at. How the mighty have fallen.

All those guys already have more experience than the lakers. All those guys and they are a bottom 5 team still.

Russell really superior to Payton already though?

As of right now, meaning so far this season.

I think Payton is still hurt TBH.

 

He was a lock defender last year, he's almost dead last worst, worseter and worstest this year.

Nothing looks right, that man is injured and trying to play through it

 

Still Payton > Russell

Maybe he's injured I don't know. But he's not really having a better season than Russell. And I think most people would say dlo has the higher ceiling anyway.

i dont remember talking about the lakers though or saying that the lakers  franchise is headed somewhere... speaking on the magic they look like they will be first round and out type to team for years to come, i said nothing about the lakers future   nor did i compare them to the lakers.

When your name is Lakersman or Kobe213 Eric etc you kinda always open yourself to having to talk about them when you are critical of other teams. laugh.gif

They're 6-8. Like 2/3 of the league is in that same range right now, give or take a game in either direction. They're still in play for a playoff spot in the East. The Sixers, Nets, Lakers, Pelicans, Blazers Denver and Kings all have worse records. They have the same record as the Bucks, who everyone loves. So, they're not actually a bottom 5 team. Maybe we should wait a little while before concluding that, for this season, they're in the same class as the Lakers.

Yes but having this clown in the locker room is more damaging to player development than Kobe shooting 20 times a game
