KG Speaks

He’s back. Kevin Garnett has emerged from his summer of “mental decompression” to promote the new NBA 2K9 video game. Because the Celtics played more playoff games last season than any team in the history of the NBA, KG eased up on his summer workout schedule. Any chance a “certified” KG will be less thirsty for a title this season?

“Give me a couple more short summers where I feel like with this team, [we] set our mark. Every Celtics team sort of had their run, and its multiples. It’s only right that we set our mark in this league like Timmy [Duncan] has done it with the Spurs, Kobe [Bryant] and Shaq [O’Neal] have done it [with the Lakers]. This is my opportunity to do that. I’m trying to take advantage of it fully right now.”

“I know what I’m anticipating and what this season is about to be like. I trained with the intent that they’re coming [for me]. But guess what, I’m coming, too. We are coming.”

That’s the KG we know and love.

Meanwhile, Sixers coach Mo Cheeks is doing his best to keep his team grounded. The signing of Elton Brand made Philly a popular choice to challenge the Celtics in the East:

To compare us with Boston? C’mon, we have a long way to go,” Cheeks said. “We’re still trying to reach and see where we can go. That’s a long stretch to think we can be the Boston Celtics.”

I was also glad to see that nearly 80% of you want no part of Stephon Marbury playing in Boston.
