Kevin Garnett Is An Awesome Mentor

Leadership.

We often talk about how great Kevin Garnett is with the young big men on the team. But you don't have to be tall to be impacted by KG's golden touch. Just read this story from Avery Bradley.

Green Street " Irish Coffee: Celtics ‘veteran’ Avery Bradley emerges from Ray Allen’s shadow

"One day, KG saw me on the bus," he said. "I had my hoodie on. I was a little down. I wasn’t playing. He could tell I wasn’t the same Avery, always smiling but shy, and he told me, ‘You know what? I was sitting back in my room last night watching tapes of you in high school. If you continue to work how hard you work every day and never give up, the way you played in high school, you’ll play in the NBA.’"

"Then, one day I’m on the bus after a game and all KG said was, ‘I told you,’" added Bradley. "At first I had no clue what he was talking about. He always sits in the back of the bus and tells his stories, and he’s like, ‘I told you that. If you continue to work … hard work always pays off.’ Coming from KG, that made me feel good and made me want to keep working, so I can be like him."

To quote the late Chris Farley: that... was... awesome.
