We've always thought Kevin Garnett was crazy. But, this pretty much proves it. After the Celtics beat the 76ers over the weekend, KG was asked if he was tired at the end of the game. His response? Classic KG.
"I'd die out here if I had to," he said, "and that's real talk. I've been doing this for a long time and [there are] ways where I know how to conserve energy and get 'em at free throw lines and when guys are shooting free throws, those are valuable seconds for me. When I train in the summer I train for a lack of, and when I say that, I mean rest. I program my body to recover as quickly as it can. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. I'm a cerebral player these days and I know how to buy myself time on pick and rolls and stuff like that, things that you don't see when you're in your seat and it helps me."
Almost makes you want to tune into tonight's Celts/Sixers game that much more, doesn't it?
