In preparation of his potential return against the Orlando Magic tonight, Kevin Garnett took to his Chinese ANTA blog over the weekend to touch on a variety of subjects. Here’s the latest translation, courtesy of Chris Forsberg at ESPNBoston.com:
Today was a great day. We had the starting 5 together at practice for the first time since game 6 of the finals. The timing was a little off, but we definitely gave it to the 2nd unit. Perk was out there, which was awesome. I was pumped for him. He was flying up and down the court and without a sub, he did well. Diesel slipped on some ice and JO is trying to figure out what he can and can’t do.
Felt pretty good today and we’ll see how I am for tomorrow’s big game against Orlando.
Friday we won against Charlotte and Diesel showed glimpses of his old self. He dominated the game and ran the floor well. Only had 10 dressed, so everyone contributed and it was closer [than] it should’ve been. Charlotte has new coaches and they have been playing really well. Glad to see they had some fight in them. They are a team that has good potential and they played hard the other night. When we saw them in Charlotte, they had no fight.
Weekend was slow and went as a team to the Patriots game. They lost and the stadium was in shock. Crazy that they were supposed to be the best team and now they are out. That is why I want our guys to see that we can’t take anything for granted and we need to play as if we could be eliminated.
Well if there’s one good thing to take out of yesterday’s game, maybe it’s that it gave the C’s an additional reminder to bring it in the playoffs. Hooray for seven-game series! I also agree with KG on the Bobcats, I see them and the Sixers sneaking in for those final two spots in the East. That’s all for now, stay posted for Around The NBA later this afternoon.
