Kevin Garnett Watches Family Guy, Not Basketball ‘Programs’

Chris Forsberg has a bunch of bullet point and notes from Orlando today, but this is the best nugget we found. “The Celtics have largely brushed off the suggestion that they might be angry from the national media’s focus on what other teams have done wrong, more so than what Boston has done right this postseason. Garnett said it’s surely fodder for motivation, but he doesn’t put too much stock into it.  Heck, he hardly hears the pundits giving his TV viewing habits. ‘A lot of stuff motivates us, but I watch a lot of Family Guy, so I don’t really watch your programs,’ said Garnett. ‘I don’t really hear what you guys say. But, at some point, it gets back to the group. It can motivate us. But it’s what’s in front us — we had Miami to beat, we had Cleveland to beat — those are all motivational subjects. Orlando is no different. Both these teams are very good, that’s enough motivation. We saw the way Orlando was lighting people up in the playoffs against Charlotte and Atlanta, that motivated us more [than the pundits].’”

    Probably a good idea. I mean, Family Guy is far more intelligent than most any sports program that is out there. And considering that it’s Family Guy, that’s saying a lot.

  • BostonBaller

    I can see KG watching that and Boondocks. hahahha He has to watch toons to level out some of that intensity or his head and heart would explode.

  • http://www.another48minutes.com Gerard Himself

    So KG watched Family Guy, and there’s a character in there named Cleveland…. wait… don’t you see what this all means?! Oh wow! Wait, it means nothing, sorry.

    KG, shut up Orlando is the better team and will win six games. Ray Allen is not playing like that again, he did the same thing last year then fail off Orlando in 6. BOOT IT!!!

  • Jesse Dunns Ghost

    The episode of the cleveland show with the son singing the song “Balls Deep” with scottie pippen was classic!!! You tube it!!!

    Hey at least Family Guy is a step up from Voltron haha.

  • http://Www.lkz.ch Darksaber

    HEY! No knocking Voltron. That ish was legit (at least when i was 12/13, hehe)

  • http://thetroyblog.com Teddy-the-Bear

    The Simpsons > Family Guy and it has NEVER been close. NEVER.

  • http://joeloholic.wordpress.com Joel O’s

    @Darksaber: Yeah Voltron was the stuff ha ha. But when you’re a 30-something 7 footer, I think saying you don’t follow basketball “programs” since you’re too busy watching Family Guy beats telling them you were watching Voltron lol.

  • Morgan

    @Nigel, yes KG has been a voice in an episode this season so no wonder he’s trying to plug the show. Free advertising never hurts I guess.

    family guy is great. only south park is much better

  • Camel Joe

  • BostonBaller

    South Park hahhaa that would seem to fit KG better. with all of the swearing. lol

  • whybutwhy

    why KG, why? Well I guess people need their shows to just veg. He can’t be intense ALL of the time after all. Still…..why?!

  • http://www.slamonline.com MooButter

    No one watches the Cleveland Show. It was horrible. Family Guy on the other hand, probably the best show on TV.

  • Rich
