Just Another Awesome KG Interview

"I’d die out here if I had to and that’s real talk."
"I’d die out here if I had to and that’s real talk."

With WEEI yesterday, KG explains how he'd die on the court if he had to when asked how tired he was at the end of the game on Saturday.

Kevin Garnett Will Do Anything to Win, Including Die On the Court If He Had to

"I’d die out here if I had to and that’s real talk. I’ve been doing this for a long time and ways where I know how to conserve energy and get ‘em at free throw lines and when guys are shooting free throws, those are valuable seconds for me. When I train in the summer I train for a lack of, and when I say that, I mean rest. I program my body to recover as quickly as it can. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t. I’m a cerebral player these days and I know how to buy myself time on pick and rolls and stuff like that, things that you don’t see when you’re in your seat and it helps me."

Most times, when you hear an athlete say something like this, you know they are being sarcastic, but with Kevin, "anything is possible." He has literally shown up for these playoffs resembling a wild animal searching for his prey just to survive. I feel bad for Spencer Hawes, Elton Bran, Lavoy Allen, or anyone that has to be matched up against him this postseason. He is a man on a mission. Not just any man, a man with the tenacity of a tiger who hasn't eaten for days. I'm repeating myself with the animal comparison, I know, but is there any other way to describe him right now?
