Post-game Reactions

Via ESPN Boston’s Chris Forsberg, who knows a great, playful rant when he hears one, here’s Kevin Garnett discussing his not-so-newfound aptitude for three-point shooting after the C’s took down the Grizzlies.

“When I walk around the streets, y’all stop acting like y’all shocked that I can shoot 3’s. Everybody in Boston, everybody in the world, everybody in Minnesota, everybody wherever I’m at — Concord, Lexington, Burlington — I can shoot 3’s, OK. Let that go. I can shoot 3’s. Y’all are acting all shocked like you ain’t seen a black guy hit a 3. The hell’s going on with y’all? I can shoot 3’s, alright? Doc was yelling at me today — shoot, shoot, shoot, shoot. Finally, I just shot the 3 and said, ‘Huh! Is that what you want!?’

    I hope he said that race comment jokingly, bc if not that made me lose some respect for KG… Has nothing to do with race. Weak.

      Pretty sure that Garnett, as Ray Allen's teammate, is aware that people in Concord know that black people can hit 3's.

    It's just a jokey expression. Don't be so tone deaf.

    I think black guys are ALLOWED to make 'black guy' comments…no?? Earned the right really…But I am a wee bit confused about KG's perception of Ray Allen…not OVERLY confused, just a tad…no matter …the big guy can get all racial if he wants…who's gonna argue with that mountain of a man????
