    Garnett - Incredible

    Have to say how much I admire the play of Garnett in the latter half of this season and the post season. He's leaving absolutely nothing on the table when it comes to his game performances.

    Would have to say that he's the best centre left in the play offs which does give Boston a decent advantage that that position. Not sure if Boston were considering making a big offer to Garnett but he really should be taken care of by the Celtic organisation after what he has given the team.

    Never thought he'd be producing at such a high standard at this point in his career. Maybe he won't be able to play like this in 2012/13. MAYBE it's actually his last season and that could really explain why he's playing at this standard.

    Really do hope he retires as a Celtic. Also think that number 5 won't be worn again by another Celtic player. How can it after all he's given to the team, banner 17 and respectability. That's something you can't attach monetary value to.

    KG is dominating...completely dominating. WOW! All of this while getting killed in the post. Allen and Hawes are hacking him almost every play and the refs aren't giving KG the respect due. Then you see the Pacers blow on DWade and Bron and it's called. That's ok it really doesn't matter at this point.

    Tomorrow's game is HUGE! If we can get rid of the Sixers in 5 this would serve of well. It looks like the Pacers may beat the Heat in 6 since Bron is crying about playing PF.

    I know it's early but I'm starting to smell a Geritol Finals....Celtics vs Spurs.

    Pop vs Doc
    Rondo vs Parker
    Duncan vs KG
    Pierce vs Cap Jack
    Allen vs Ginobili

    I won't count us in yet but I think this team is hungry and can see it. Just get tomorrow's game first. We know this team likes to make things hard for themselves. I'm looking for Ray Allen to have a big game tomorrow...it's his turn.

    KG is going to be on the Celtics next year if he wants.  His play over the second half has been something those who follow Celtics basketball will remember.

    It shows you that conventional logic about a player due to age and injury is not  always accurate. He is playing like he did in 2008.  How is that possible?  But it is.

    Re: Garnett - Incredible

    Two games ago KG said in post game conference, he loved his coach and playing for this team.  Anything can happen but I think we can expect a guy like KG means what he says.  With the money KG has made in his career I doubt he would chase money for an opportunity in a new city with a new coach.

    KG isn't going anywhere. Ainge will sign him back. If anything I think he can lure a few guys to come to Boston. Billups off the bench and Dwight Howard would be good fits.

    I think KG wants another multi-year deal...2 years and that's spurring him to play well.

    You can easily argue he's literally been the best player in the playoffs on any team. Amazing and he WANTS the ball. Doesn't hestitate on shots. Incredible. This is the first time in Boston since maybe 08 that he's demanding the ball.

    Re: Garnett - Incredible

    My gut still tells me he will retire at the end of the year.  Read where it takes so much energy for him to just get ready for a game...................his knee, his fire.........it just might not be worth it with the 3 x 100 mill contracts he's signed.  Here's hoping he goes out with a bang!!  (whenever that is!!)

    Absolutely a pleasure to watch KG work his a_s off night in and night out. He is leaving it all on the court every game. I honestly think his play rubbed off on Pierce too last night. PP 2 dunking drives back to back. That is into a game. Well played boys...keep it going strong

    Re: Garnett - Incredible

    Firstly, I wouldn't call KG the best Center in the game.  Albeit a thin, wiry muscular body not afraid to mix it up, he's not a Banger under the boards because he doesn't have the weight of a Bynum or Howard. But he's the best Center/Power Forward in the game I believe as he can hit anywhere from 10-15 feet out at more than 50% & do an occasional 3 pt shot too. Against other PFs 6'9"--6'10" yup he can out rebound but, as I said, 7 ft Centers like Bynum & Howard can usually outrebound him.

    I'd love to keep him next year & two even if we can get a good 7 footer( two even better) to rest him and also play along him to have  the effect of a Gasol/Bynum combo which dominates. LA problem is they only have Kobe while we have many more better perimeter players and we have Rondo too!!!

    Would love to win the next two or at least in 6 and have Indy/Miami go to 7 and bang eachother up and give PP a time to heal & the older guys some rest.

    In Response to Re: Garnett - Incredible:
    Eastern Conference Playoffs "I was [angry]," Garnett said. "After the game I came in and just said, 'We're not going to beat anybody -- JV teams or high school teams -- if we're not going to play together. We've worked so hard to get to where we're at and we got there together. "Ubuntu, we've been preaching that since I've been here. I had to just remind the guys -- including the younger guys, the new guys -- on how we succeed here and the creed, Celtics basketball and what we are here. I just had to reiterate that."

    Wow. Awesome. That's a leader.

    Bias,
    I have been thinking the same way about Howard.  I think things are aligning with his reputation suffering and the cap space we have.  Dwight knows Doc well and more than ever playing for a great coach makes sense after his decline the last year. He just might end up a Celtic.

    Garnett may be better than Bynum & Howard, I agree, but he's not the type of Center we need in the future because we are last in rebounds & as a jump shooting team need shoot 45-50% and play good "D" to cause turnovers but it'd be nice to have a bad shooting night 35%-40% & still win because we got more rebounds.  I copy & paste this from my earlier post:

    Firstly, I wouldn't call KG the best Center in the game.  Albeit a thin, wiry muscular body not afraid to mix it up, he's not a Banger under the boards because he doesn't have the weight of a Bynum or Howard.

    They need KG next year because the only good Free Agents are Howard and Deron..oviously we don't get Deron and D12 will be moved at deadline anyway. Only other guy is Eric Gordon coming off knee surgery. No thanks. KG is the 3rd best FA next year and attainable by the Celtics. They love him and he loves them. As long as they can work out a contract that doesn't screw up 2013 money give him his money.

    We get two first round draft picks this year as well. Resign KG and build a statute to him next to the one for Bill Russell.
    Posted by Kirk6


    I hope that KG is also with the Celtics next season.  Although, I am still hearing rumors that he may retire.  Either way, he won't be playing many more years and certainly doesn't need the money.  We were lucky that Danny signed KG a couple of years ago.

    Offensive post, my man! To say a guy who gives it his all every time he's on the court is motivated by trying to get a new contract is just silly. Whether he plays well or poorly, he's in there fighting every night. He practices hard, plays hard, fights pushes, cheats, and does anything to make his team better - EVERY YEAR, and you think is because he wants a new contract next year? Be serious.

    This is what give me the feeling that this could be his last year.

    Garnett is playing at the moment like a man who is emptying what is left in his NBA fuel tank. Could be wrong though.

    Hypothetically if Boston win a title this season. Both he and Allen may both retire. Two titles, a finals appearances. Nothing left to prove or to achieve in the game.
