Maybe “enemy” is too strong, but whatever the appropriate word ends up being, it’s safe to say that the Hawks’ Jeff Teague will get no Christmas card from Kevin Garnett. In the midst of a snail-fest in Philips Arena, there was a sudden dose of excitement of the aerial variety:
Predictably, Garnett didn’t care much for the post-dunk theatrics (which we here at All Ball thoroughly appreciate; things aren’t the same without a provoked KG).
The Big Ticket’s reply, when asked about the dunk that seemed to energize the Celtics?
“I don’t even know who you talking about. That guy’s a nobody.”
Well, then. Maybe a glimpse into the old flippant Garnett is just what
this Celtics team I need.
