Kevin Garnett Is Motivated By People Who Call Him "Old"

Kevin Garnett hears you calling him old. Yes, you. And he's not happy about it. In fact, he's using it as motivation this season. Which should make you—yes, again, you—very, very scared.

"I'm motivated," he said during a radio interview recently. "I hear y'all calling me old. I hear y'all calling me older, weathered. It don't take really much to motivate me, man. I'm older in basketball years, but in life, I'm 30-something. I'm looking at your gray hair, no hair, half hair, beautiful hair, wet hair. I'm just motivated. I like to use that word...It doesn't take much to motivate me, man. I don't watch too many of you guys' interviews—garbage—but the ones I do catch, it's an opinion and it is what it is, but it puts a spark under me, and I like that. Playing against younger talent that's supposed to be prolific and supposed to be above average, but I'm old, though, you know? Like I said, again, for the third time, it doesn't take much to motivate me."

Don't make him say it a fourth time, okay? Yes, we're still talking to you.
