Bradley: You know the story of Doc making him sit out at one practice. And so, he was upset Doc made him sit out.
Leon Powe, Celtics teammate: KG looks shocked and said, “Aight, Doc, I’m just gonna go over here to the sideline.” So we start practicing, doing drills, and start to transition to 5-on-5. We all start to notice a shadow going up and down the court. So I look over there as I’m running and see KG on the sideline, trying to beat everybody down the court.
He did this for 35-40 minutes straight. When we did our defensive drill, he’s doing defensive slides all the way down and back, talking to himself, beating his chest in a full sweat. He’s talking to himself like, “C’mon KG, you can beat him!” Doc notices and says, “KG, what are you doing?! What are you doing?! Everybody get in the middle! KG bring it in.”
Eastman: Kevin ended up saying to Doc, you can’t kick Kevin Garnett out of a drill. If you want to kick him out of a drill, you got to kick him out of the gym.
Powe: KG was in a full sweat, like he played a million games. Doc looks at him and says, “It’s your day off, man. What are you doing?” KG said, “I know. I am taking a day off.” Doc called practice and kicked everybody out the gym.
Zarren: I’ve never seen anyone do that before or since. Kevin didn’t stop moving, ever.
Bradley: He’s crazy, man.
Agree this is a fantastic read. I could read a whole book that's nothing but people talking about KG. Jay King has really been doing some great work over there.
King and Weiss do great work imo. And KG is such a fascinating subject. It says something about a person when they are both very demanding of others in their midst and widely admired/loved by those same people.Agree this is a fantastic read.

Thank you for posting. If you would ask me which current players love KG, I most definitely would have guessed Brown and Smart. I missed that Smart KG interaction but Marcus did not and you can tell it meant a lot to him. They definitely seem wired in a similar fashion.
I will be there as well, but will be so far in the rafters my camera will be useless.I'll be in the house tomorrow night for KG's retirement with my 14 year old son. He missed most of KG's career, but he's had an autographed photo of both of the Big 3's on his wall (just below the autographed photo of Red), since he was born, and he loves the C's. I know a bunch of other folks going to, should be an awesome time. I'll try to get some good pics, but someone from here will probably need to get them from my FB page, because I'm incapable of getting photos from my phone to SoSH.
Based on those pictures, you were sitting right in front us. We were in row 9 of Loge 10, right at around midcourt. We definitely could have car pooled. LOL at Cindy's message last night, I didn't know how to respond to that.I was lucky enough to be offered courtside seats to yesterday’s game and snapped some pics.
Ha yeah I mean at this point it is what it is. I don't even flinch anymore when saying I met some of the folks here via an internet message board about the Red Sox. I am sure it would be foreign to Cindy though haha.Based on those pictures, you were sitting right in front us. We were in row 9 of Loge 10, right at around midcourt.
