Enemy Chatter: The Big Frustration


I often wonder what opposing teams, their beat reporters and bloggers are saying about the Celtics after playing the Celtics. Here's a dose of 'enemy chatter' from Miami.

There is a reason the Big Ticket many times becomes the Big Frustration.

Kevin Garnett, whose Lazarus performance in the inspiring Game 3 victory over Miami was key, left his bite at home and only brought his bark to Monday’s 98-90 overtime loss to the Heat. The Celtics trail the best-of-7 series 3-1, and Monday’s loss may be the wake for the Celtics’ Big 3 era.

While his 28-point, 18-rebound performance Saturday was as praised as his role in keeping counterpart Chris Bosh to one of the most embarrassing nights of his career, Garnett’s seven-point (on 1-of-10 shooting), 10-rebound stat line last night resembled Bosh’s Game 3 more than anything.

There's no bigger insult for an NBA big man than "Like a Bosh." But KG deserves it. He was awful.

I feared this scenario after Garnett logged 37 minutes in Game 3 with only one full day off before Game 4.

Maybe it's time we scale back our expectations of the Ticket? I shutter at the thought…

And the 'KG turtles in big moments' rap is so 2008. I believe he's exorcised those demons.
