Kevin Garnett has brought the Boston Celtics out of the history books, and back onto center stage of the NBA. Kevin Garnett, a premiere NBA forward for virtually all of his NBA career, has always been better than the teams he has played on. Now, finally, in the twilight of his career, his best chance for an NBA Title has arrived.
A sure-fire hall-of-famer, Kevin Garnett has brought life back to the Boston Celtics. Alongside Paul Pierce and Ray Allen, Kevin Garnett has exploded into the mainstream NBA yet again, allowing us to remember just how good, how intense, and how hungry he still is.
With the best record in the NBA, the Boston Celtics are set up beautifully in the NBA’s Eastern Conference, with only the Detroit Pistons poised to give the Boston Celtics a run to the NBA Finals. The centerpiece of the NBA Eastern Conference Playoffs will be Kevin Garnett, and the Eastern Conference will go through Kevin Garnett to get to the NBA Finals as much as the Boston Celtics themselves.
With a supporting cast fitting of a trip to the NBA Finals finally around him, it seems that the only thing that can stop Kevin Garnett and the Boston Celtics this season are themselves, and so far other NBA teams are out of luck on that account. Kevin Garnett still has the intensity, and the experience to lead, to perform and to challenge those around him to be their best. He asks nothing of his teammates that he does not first ask of himself.
Having been traded from the Minnesota Timberwolves before the start of the season, Minnesota is now in ashes while the Boston Celtics have risen from them. One common denominator-Kevin Garnett.
