A good article on KG's Importance on Si.com

I found a really great read on Si.com (http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/nba/news/20130221/nba-trade-rumors-kevin-garnett-boston-celtics/index.html) about Kevin Garnett and it gives just tidbits of his importance to the team and the impact that trades make to a locker room.

-In a quote Rondo talks about KG's presence:

"Rondo reminisced about how, when Garnett and Allen joined Paul Pierce in 2007, they shouted at him for the ball and he had to keep track of everybody's shots so no one ever took too many or too few. "But K.G. never did that," he said. Rondo described how, when the Celtics are tiring in the fourth quarter, Garnett's voice lifts them even if his shots don't. "Nobody talks like K.G.," he said. "'Right here on the pick! Get rid of the ball!' It's intimidating." Rondo mentioned that he often struggles to sleep after games, so he watches Celtics replays at 2 a.m., and looks for someone to call at 4. "K.G. is always up," he said."

-In another quote he talks about the Perk trade and how it STILL impacts the team:

"We still talk about that trade," Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo said. "It still seems like we're trying to replace Perk."




This man is so important to the team and I'm personally glad that he's around even if it's for a short time.
