The time Kevin Garnett arm wrestled Big Baby Davis

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — Brooklyn Nets center Kevin Garnett is famously one of the NBA’s most intense players — known for his ability to focus so deeply that it can devolve into things like headbutting the basket support or even (very occasionally) perhaps attempting to take a chunk out of an opponent.

KG is also intensely private, mostly eschewing interviews and photoshoots in favor of keeping a low profile off the court. But thank goodness for Brian Scalabrine, KG’s former teammate in Boston who did a spot on Fox Sports the other night and told a tale about a team flight where Garnett and Glen “Big Baby” Davis squared off in an arm wrestling contest for the ages.

    Oh Kevin Garnett, if only Minnesota gave you better teammates to work with.

    It’s not that hard to hate the man. But it’s hard not to respect him.
