The best moment in last night’s Celtics game came from the post game news conference when KG and Paul Pierce did a little “Y’know” routine. A few of the guys… KG especially… use “y’know” as a crutch in their interviews. A few days ago, the guys got a little lesson in how to give an interview from some kind of coach.
I’d love to find the video of this exchange… but I can’t. Some of us blogs can’t negotiate exclusive deals with CSN (but we do get to say things like “douchebag” without readers getting touchy). I’ll give a King’s Ransom (note: exchange rate from King’s Ransom to dollars is suprisingly low) to anyone who finds that exchange between KG and Pierce. The next best thing is the Globe’s transcript of Doc’s news conference… which was given, in part, by Rajon Rondo.
*** UPDATE *** Nora has come through in the comments with the audio portion of the exchange between KG and Pierce… as well as the Doc/Rondo thing. The KG and Pierce exchange starts at the 2:38 of the “Garnett and Pierce 1/16 Postgame” clip.
