Anyone who listened to WEEI this morning got an annoying dose of Michael Felger and Jon Metaparel questioning KG’s threshold for pain.
They insinuated that Garnett might be scared to play on the injured knee because of the fear of further injury. He’s been relatively healthy his entire career and never had to play through major knee pain. Make sense?
Felger kept coming back to this quote by Ainge early last week:
“When Kevin plays is his decision,” Ainge said. “But I think Kevin plays once the playoffs start. Ultimately, it’s just his decision.”
Is it possible? Maybe (how’s that for straddling the fence?).
This theory could explain the latest revelation that the Celtics want Garnett to hold off on surgery.
FYI – We plan on having an in-game live chat for tonight’s battle.
