    Re: K.G.- Too old for back to the basket offense?

    I always try to understand why you say the things you do.

    KG looked old in the last game. He was slower on defense, and slower on offense. However, back to the basket basketball does not require speed, and old guys have done it well for years. Besides, KG has never, ever, ever, ever been a prototypical back to the basket player, even in 2004, his MVP year. He would do it occasionally, in conjunction with the dream shake, and the fade away have always been his bread and butter. The guy has always been a more like a guard in a 7'1" frame, than Kevin McHale, or Tim Duncan, or Moses Malone. He just does not have the mass and upper body strength to do it on a consistent basis.

    Besides, he has usually been one of the top field goal percentage guys in the league year after year.

    I hate to say it, but, I think this year is the end of the road. I hope that I am wrong but, I think he will call it quits at the end of the year.

    He has had a great career, and I wish he had always been in Boston, because things would have been different and better for him and for the Celtics.

    So KG, if by chance you do read this stuff; you have been my favorite player since you entered the league. I wish you the best of everything.

    I'm just saying, there may be a good reason why K.G. keeps resorting to the jump-shot.

    It is the easier on the body than posting or driving, or dream shake fade-away's.

    Why are you so always negative about the Celtics? And you call yourself a fan? I don't like fans who are fickle minded and not committed to their team. You are one of them.

    I definitely agree with you.  Some posters claim to be Celtics fans, yet always start negative threads about this team.  I don't believe some of them are Celtics fans or maybe are just negative about everything in their life.

    Hey Da,  K.G. Has a message for you...  he told me to tell you to shut up and sit down and watch the game.  You have been making some asinine predictions this playoffs starting with the famous, C's going back to boston at 2-2 against N.Y.

    You are disrespecting Russ with that avatar..so please change it, and K.G. said dont post after the C's win this series either...

    Kg hasn't had a good post up game in years.

    Posted by snakeoil123[/QUOTE]Agreed. KG has always been a more effective scorer facing the basket and particularly so when being covered by a player with equal length and size or greater. He has never been a beast on the block. It is why he has almost always been a 4 even when playing with smaller 5's.

    Hogwash, bologna and some other responses that I'm not allowed to type on this site. He did a great job with post up fade aways on Saturday along with 2 post up hook shots. K.G rarely takes hook shots, but he frequently takes post up fade away jump shots. I'd like to see him take more post up hook shots.

    Five, I think Tim Duncan would disagree with you.

    Wow, his best game of the series is when he got easier baskets in the post Saturday night. He could have been doing that the last four years also. He hasn't needed to. Now he needs to exploit the height difference. That simple!

    You bringing up fade aways and hook shots are making my point.  I am talking about strong post moves.  That has never been a big part of KG's offensive game.  Even more when he gets older.

    You guys act like Saying that Garnett doesn't have a strong post game means that I am being negative. As a 4 its' the weakest part of his game.
