Kevin Garnett Went to a ‘Dark Place’ After Game 7

KG wasn’t in the mood for too much conversation following the devastating Finals loss to the Lakers, and admits to WEEI that he knows he’s an a**hole on the court. SRI has the quotes: “On the off-season after losing Game 7 of the NBA Finals: ‘Very dark, to be honest, dark. ‘Just leave me alone, let me be my myself. I don’t want to deal with anything right now. Let me just be in a dark place.’ Just the way I replay the game over and over in my mind, trying to get a resolution to some type of place to where you can settle with it. I never found it, but that’s what it is. I say it’s fuel to the fire. [Expletive? (Bleeped completely out].’ On if he would like him if he were on the other team? ‘I’d think I was an a**hole, because I’m misunderstood. I’m serious. I’m not out on the court making friends. I’m not out there patting guys on the back. I’m trying to bust yo’ ass, period, point blank. When I hit the floor, I’m a certain kind of way, and I never have any excuses for that.’”

    He’s replaying all the shots he passed away because he’s a p*ssy in the clutch.

  • hangkwong

    Intense KG

  • unrel

    straight up, though.. i’d rather here that.. than all the BS his coach and teammates are saying with the woulda coulda shoulda’s.. KG never gives excuses..

    It’s funny they say if Perk was there then they would of won but it was his backup Sheed that helped the Celtics get the big lead they had.

  • EJ

    Yes, I don’t think Perk could’ve matched up Sheed.

  • Papa Smurf

    KG’s a straight up biatch. He’s tough around guys like Jose Calderon. When KG used to get matched up against ‘Sheed, KG was soft as cotton.

  • dma

    back into the closet yeah?

  • vtrobot

    “[Expletive? (Bleeped completely out].” – I think that’s KG most famous quote. @ Jukai, i wouldn’t call the guy Big Shot Kevin but calling him a p*ssy? C’mon. KG didn’t hit a huge number of game winners but he hit at least one last year and he hits a good number of jumpers in the final minutes of games. he should pass it up to ray/PP if they’re open too.

  • http://dfsjkl.com Jukai

    vtrobot : Actually I was realllllly down on KG. Everyone makes fun of his lack of clutch, but he did not take ANY serious shot down the stretch, did not put himself in ANY position to score. Like, he makes Elvin Hayes look like Reggie f*cking Miller

  • Brian

    @ Kap, I agree 100%. If Perk was available and they played him 15 minutes or so then maybe it would have made a difference.
    That would not have happened though because they would have had him out there for way longer.

    Expletive?. They couldnt tell if it was an expletive, so they bleeped it out completely anyways just to make sure. Itd be nice if this coming finals is as good as that one.

  • chazz michael michaels

    yeah he joined allen iverson in the casino lol gett’n crunk wit it

  • http://hibachi20.blogspot.com Moose

    I completely respect what KG said about his style of play. People really just hate him on here because of all his antics, but like he said, he’s trying to bust your ass, that’s it. Respect.



  • http://slamonline.com Allenp

    exactly why he has always been only behind Iverson on my favorite player list.
    For the record the all-time list is
    1. Hakeem
    2. Iverson
    3. KG.
    I’m complicated

  • slick ric

    Jukai a lame. K.G. a beast,or at least used to be in his prime. I always thought he was the most complete Power foward in the league.

  • http://dfsjkl.com Jukai

    slick ric: Complete package except for 5 minutes left in the game.

    My all time list:
    1- Iverson;
    2- Barkley;
    3- Paul Pierce;
    4- Chris Webber;
    5- Rasheed Wallace.
    I’m simple.

  • The Fresh Prince of Nsam

    6- Spreewell (shoul’ve been number 2)
    7- Rodman;
    8- Hakeem;
    9- Michael Jordan;
    10- Luc Mbah a Mouthe.

  • MusketeerX

    The only reason why the Lakers won was because of rebounding. Other than that they were simply outplayed.

    That is life, though. Ces’t la vie. Celts got another year older… we’ll see if they can pull it of again, and get back to the Finals.

  • Papa Smurf

    Only thing worse than a Lakers fan . . . is a Celtics fan.

    It’s Dark and Hell is Hot

    guys no one cares about your all time lists…

    KG – respect the truth

  • Purple Reign

    Papa Smurf. The Only thing WORSE than Laker & C’s fan are stpuid idiotic Lebron Dick Slurpers & INSECURE Michael Jordan lovers.

  • The Fresh Prince of Nsam

    @ Toni Kukoc: Sorry, u’re not on my list.

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

    LOL @ Prince of Nsam.

    KG is a punk, he picks on cats, that won’t do anything back. When has KG, had a battle with a star, Heck even Reggie mixed it up with MJ. KG needs to shutup and get back in shape, because he looked old in the Finals and missed three point blank shots in the NBA Finals. I hope KG stays in that Dark Place. BOOK IT!!

  • http://Www.slamonline.com Myles Brown

    I love it Purple Reign!!!!! Insecure slurpers indeed.

  • BostonBaller

    Is D Howard a small guard? Is LBJ a little skinny punk? there are others but no one would listen so why bother. Those 2 guys are guys KG went at in last years playoffs. He was called a punk when he chopped Howard so regardless of who he does whatever to he can’t win. KG hasn’t really gone at Billups (a guard) or Sheed (a forward) and I’m sure the main reason is b/c he is very close with both of them. KG speaks his mind and seems to be honest so why harp on anything, just enjoy the games and wait until he is too old to play so you can say “see, he sucks” Watch the games and be honest (if possible)

  • http://slamonline.com Allenp

    KG punched Tim Duncan in the face.
    If that ain’t a star, I don’t know what is…
    (Actually he mushed him the face, but punch sounds better.)

  • hangtime Hec

    Come to think of it KG looks a lot like DMX. What a fitting look alike.

  • http://www.threadsandkicks.com.au Eduardo

    KG should be proud. Took the Celtics all the way to the finals beating the two other East teams that were rated to be in the Finals.

  • LeBron de Con

    KG will take on any player 6’4″ and under. Whimp

  • Danny

    I love KG but in Game 7 he got 3 boards to Kobe’s 15. [Expletive? (Bleeped completely out] that…

  • str8 from samoa


  • lazaruz

    iownt no wat any of u are on about. kg is the scariest dude in the league, period. hes intimidating as hell, call him a puss is ridiculous.

  • logues

    Jukai: i hope ur not basing ur opinion all on one game, cuz kg has hit many big shots in his career, esp in minny

  • Anthony

    please get over it, it’s pre-season already.

  • vtrobot

    @ BostonBaller: I was going to mention D. Howard. People see what they want to see. Thank you for being 1 step ahead and for posting unbiased comments.

  • Joey

    Wow, just wait until he’s old and injured to rash on him. There was none of this talk before his injury. And KG’s not clutch? HA!
