It’s no secret that Boston Celtics leader and future NBA Hall of Famer, Kevin Garnett, thrives on intensity and being “riled up.” Some even call him a dirty player, but let’s be realistic: if he played in the 1980′s he would have been praised for his old-school style of play. But that’s neither here nor there. No stranger to controversy, KG recently sounded off comparing Boston fans to Philadelphia fans, as the Celtics are matched up with the Philadelphia 76ers in the second round of the Eastern Conference Playoffs:
“Not even close. In Boston you got fans and in Philadelphia you got fair-weather fans. Take that how you want.”
With the series at 3-2 in favor of the Celtics, I’m not sure why Garnett would want to give the young and fiery Philly squad any extra motivation, but maybe he’s also motivating himself in some strange, off the grid, Kevin Garnett way. You know, sort of how he head-butts the post that holds up the backboard before every game?
