I loved what KG did for the Celtics’ team attitude last year. Beyond all of his contributions on the stat sheet, his leadership in blocking every shot that went up after a whistle blew helped to give the Celtics a mental edge on their competition.
But this year he’s added a new intimidation tactic. He’s getting all in the face of the opposing guards – both Jose Calderon and Luke Ridnour recently – with some taunting that’s a whole lot more blatant than grabbing late shots. And he’s definitely gotten some flak for it.
The New York Daily News recently quoted an NBA exec who said that KG’s “nothing but an instigator.”
Do you think that Garnett’s antics are affecting his reputation?
