Rondo, Pierce, Garnett, Perkins Share Group Text; Ray Allen Not Included

Paul Pierce, Rajon Rondo

Time passes. Things change. People move on. But like the bond it forges, a championship can’t be taken away. Every member of the 2008 Boston Celtics will forever live in basketball lore. Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett, Rajon Rondo, and Kendrick Perkins would apparently prefer if one of their former championship-winning teammates wasn’t included. After his Washington Wizards lost to the Cs in Bean Town yesterday, Pierce said that he, KG, Rondo, and Perk share a group text; notably absent from the chain was Allen. Read More »

Father & All-Star, Elton Brand, Has Seen It All During His 15-Year Career

Elton Brand

It’s impossible not to picture the regal bearing of Elton Brand every time he drops another gem of knowledge on us. Whether it’s about the game, or about life in general, there aren’t many people — let alone professional athletes — who can offer up such poignant moments from their lives. During our conversation with the power forward last month, before he embarked on his 16th season in the NBA, we got a first-hand account of a career that’s spanned decades. He’s seen and done most everything, and entering possibly his final season, the man teammates simply call “OG” is finally taking some time to appreciate how unique an opportunity this whole NBA thing has been. Just don’t embarrass him by asking about his time slinging rhymes. Read More »

Kevin Garnett Included Hakeem Olajuwon As One Of His Top 3 Trash Talkers?

Hakeem Olajuwon

There aren’t many players who can yap at an opponent on the court like Kevin Garnett. Even non-basketball fans know about the Honey Nut Cheerios rumor with Carmelo Anthony and the ensuing verbal fracas after the game. Although it was later revealed to be a total fabrication, KG had been jawing at guys like he’s got a perpetual stick of gum in his mouth for years before that night. But when ESPN’s Ohm Youngmisuk asked KG for his own top three trash talkers, one of the names he dropped was a big surprise. Read More »

After becoming a state champion in his native Indiana during his high school career, and spending four years at Duke under coach Mike Krzyzewski, seven footer Mason Plumlee found it simple to blend in with a Brooklyn Nets team last year with very real aspirations beyond the first round of the playoffs. In our conversation with Plumlee last week, we touched on his unending drive to get better, the self-sacrifice necessary to win, the fun of blowing up zombies and much more. Read More »

There’s no sense in hiding it now – we love Kevin Garnett. Stuff like this is of many, many reasons why the future Hall-of-Famer will always be one of our all-time favorites. As the Brooklyn Nets made their way through the tunnels of Chesapeake Energy Arena to begin their game against the Oklahoma City Thunder, Garnett trailed his teammates and repeatedly slapped himself in the face – with both hands! – to prepare for tip-off.
