The Big Ticket handled the criticism well in the media, though he might have some words for Gasol on the court tomorrow: “Gasol said Garnett isn’t the player he used to be. ‘He’s also lost some explosiveness,’ Gasol said. ‘He’s more of a jump-shooter now, you could say, comes off the lane. Before, he had a really, really quick first step and he was getting to the lane and he was more aggressive then.’ Gasol added that even though time has passed, Garnett is still a ‘terrific player, a terrific competitor.’ Garnett didn’t seem to take offense, but said he had ‘no comments for his comments.'”
