Pau Gasol’s running with Mike Bibby and Jokim Noah for biggest heel in Celtics’ land.
He’s taken subtle shots at Kevin Garnett’s health this season and asked by former Globe NBA writer Marc Spears about his impressions of the Celtics now compared to the two years ago, he wasn’t exactly handing out compliments.
“Three years older and three years later,” Gasol said. “They have to prove it themselves …It’s going to be tough. They got Orlando. They got Atlanta. They’ve struggled against Atlanta this year and got swept there. They got Cleveland, of course. You can make your own conclusions there.”
