KG Has a Job to do this Postseason

Cheer, and cheer very loudly from the bench: “NBA referees are on notice. Bring ear plugs. The tall, bald guy on the end of the bench is shouting at himself, not you. Forward Kevin Garnett, per request of Celtics management, is about to fill a role he is known to hate, as a non-playing member of the bench. ‘He will be on the bench,’ Doc Rivers said after making the announcement that, barring a miracle, Garnett will not play in the playoffs. ‘I told him that we need him out there. ‘We just hope that he doesn’t get a technical.’”

    That is sad as hell! Post-season and no KG, the world suck right now!

  • Jumpman3224

    Dont worry Faz just wait it out until round 2 and then pretend he is back in Minnesota…it will feel the same.

    Well no repeat barring a miracle

    If Baby or Leon mess up bad, they probably shouldn’t even go back to the bench. Request asylum from the Bulls, fellas.

    End of the bench? Put the man inbetween Doc and the scorer’s table. EFF the sightlines of announcers/scoring stat laptop typists/radio dudes. Dap everyone going in and out of the game, be the megaphone for Doc to save his voice as KG calls out sets and schemes. Mean mug the opposing players going into the game awaiting a break in the action.

    the refs need ear protection? What about the opposing players. Dude is gonna trashtalk from the bench.

    It’s hard to believe how bad it is. I have no idea what’s going on. I’m just saying he better be there for the second round, or at least the Conference finals… if they get there.

    Naw, he won’t be in street digs in the 2nd round. Trust me.

    I hope ABC zoom in for the obligatory slow-mo “fu(ckin fa&&ots” shot.

    Willis Reed, Willis Reed. Damn, I love the playoffs…

    i cant believe it. the teams old, they only have a few more chances to win more rings, with the new upcoming east, they better let him play in round 2.
    i bet they think 1st round piece of cake lets rest him, and when they go up against the cavs are magic they will release him.

    Its a conspiracy. David Stern is going to “pull some strings” to get the Celtics into the Finals and extend that series to game 7.
    Game 7, Garnett walks onto the court, emulating Willis Reed’s heroic actions of 1970.

    kg, do a willis reed thing, please.

    Well he didnt do his job in game ONE, he hid in the locker and the rest of the squealing lepracauns lost it. You telling me he can’t get on the floor…? Or he doesn’t want too…? I bet you he’d be out there if they didn’t win last year.
