Brooklyn Nets big man Kevin Garnett made a nice play late in third quarter Monday night against the visiting Sacramento Kings, chasing down a loose ball and finishing with a two-handed oop on the other end.
Following the 107-99 Nets win, reporters wouldn’t leave the 38-year old legend alone about his dunk, but KG doesn’t want any pity cheers when he throws down the rare jam nowadays.
Garnett says he may be a geezer, but he’s not in the ground yet.
Per The Record:
The noise reverberating through Barclays Center was the loudest of the night. Everyone on the Nets’ bench stood and laughed — a mixture of joy and disbelief.
“I know I’m like 150 years in dog years, but I can dunk the ball,” Garnett said. “Damn, do I look that bad out there? This is a low moment for me, Everyone is like, ‘Ooh, you dunked.’ … My daughter was like, ‘Daddy, you dunked!’
“I ain’t dead.”
