Garnett Schools Patrick O’Bryant

Patrick O’Bryant’s name has come up a lot lately… and it hasn’t been good. The Celtics need a 7 footer to come off the bench, and he’s nowhere near ready to help. It’s frustrating for us. And it’s frustrating to Kevin Garnett too.

Word from practice is that KG took POB aside after practice and worked him over. It was an intense… emphasis on INTENSE… one-on-one session. Garnett did everything from explain how a first step taken in a certain way will work… to getting up in O’Bryant’s face to “explain” things. Afterwards, KG explained that he’s sick and his leg hurts… but he’s there… in practice… and making sure guys like POB get the lessons he got when he was a young baller.

I’m sure this will be a focus of some media reports tomorrow… because these guys did nothing to hide what was going on. It was so nuts, that the people who were watching, were watching in awe.

  1. It’s about time, wonder how they’ll spin it.

  2. The C’s have got to bulk up. So far this season we have seen the starters play much better than last year (Ray, Perk and Rondo especially), but, (and I know we all cringe every time Jeff Van Gundy brings it up), not having Posey HAS hurt us. We didn’t have P.J. at this point of the season last year, but Posey gave us size and a defensive presence in the rotation that is sorely lacking this year. I love Leon, but he and Baby are undersized to take on other team’s bigs. It may be old-fashioned and simplistic to say, but usually the taller team has the advantage in basketball. As much as it pains me to say it, and despite the great 19 game streak, this team will not win a championship this year without bulking up the roster with a few bigs who can alter or block shots, trigger the fast break, and get us transistion baskets. That’s how defense wins championships.

  3. Thats why he is KG

  4. CALLING ALONZO MOURNING.

    Starbury is coming.

  6. NOOOOO

  7. i love it, I would love to see marbury in a celtic uniform, he won’t hurt our team and we need more scoring from the bench. Marbury can sure up many problems for our team, and hopefully if garnett keeps it up with working POB, he can turn into a decent back up center by the years end

  8. I AGREE WITH ZIPPITTYAY…….BRING ON ZO, I THINK HE’LL BE EVEN BETTER THAN PJ BROWN IN EVERY CATIGORY. I LOVE KG CAUSE LIKE HE SAID HIS LEGS HURT HE’S TIRED AND HE STILL COMES TO PRACTICE AND BRINGS IT EVERY NIGHT. SOMEBODY NEEDS TO GET IN PO’S ASS!! AND I’M NOT PLEASED WITH BIG BABYS GAME OF LATE. I WROTE THIS BEFORE BUT I’M NOT A FAN OF HIM SHOOTING ANY JUMPERS. HE NEEDS TO GET HIS FAT ASS IN THE PAINT AND BANG LIKE HE DID IN HIS ROOKIE YEAR.
    I THINK THE ADDITION OF ZO WOULD BE GREAT, HIS WORK ETHIC IS JUST LIKE KG’S I DON’T KNOW IF THE YOUGER PLAYERS COULD HANDLE ANOTHER PERSON LIKE KG….LOL

  9. I don’t expect O’Bryant to contribute anything this season.

  10. This isn’t new, Garnett is always in that kids face during practice. It hasn’t paid off yet though.
