The influence of communication knows no bounds in basketball. Kevin Garnett can attest to that reality more than anyone. In a play encapsulating the 38 year-old’s current impact and career-long zeal for competition, watch KG repeatedly yell “I’m good! I’m good!” while defending the Orlando Magic’s Channing Frye in the post and goading him into an air-ball – as the Brooklyn Nets lead by double-digits late in the fourth quarter.
Yes you are, KG.
Garnett had nine points, six rebounds, and two steals in just 18 minutes of play during the Nets’ 100-98 win over the Magic. Orlando made the game far closer than it actually was with an inconsequential run late in the fourth quarter.
