Fake tough guy Kevin Garnett has a major chip on his shoulder these days. Despite the fact that he’s usually the one to bully and mess with folks who are smaller and less annoying than he is, it’s actually apparently the The Artist Formerly Known As The Big Ticket who is America’s underdog.
Following his Celtics’ undeniably clutch Game 5 victory over the Heat (in Miami, no less) this past Tuesday night, Garnett had this to say about what drives him and his squad:
In case you missed that quote:
"The competition, the naysayers, the owners who talk too much. The people who don't think a 36-year-old can do what I do. I take a lot of pride in my craft, I work really hard at my craft everyday, and I'm a true professional."
What a horrible guy.
