The Face of the Franchise is Returning

Posted by GreenBanner18 on January 20, 2010 at 1:57 PM

When you think of the Celtics of today, who is the first person that comes to your mind? You may say Pierce, heck you may even say Rondo, but for me it is hands down Kevin Garnett. Of course Pierce has been on the team much longer, and he is the deffinition of a true Celtic. However, when it comes to the absolute leader, that man is KG.

touch them.  they totally feel like they are real.

Although there is probably only 2 inches of the couch that holds my rear end during Celtics games, there is probably less than 1 inch when Garnett is playing. The thing is, you dont know what is going to happen next. For all you know he could be playing defense like a gorilla, or clapping his hands in the face of Calderon. Technical foul? No, intensity. Cockiness? No, intensity.

?

Kevin, like no other player in the league, has exactly what it takes to get the crowd involved. In fact he personally addresses the crowd mid game to tell them where their better be, and it sure as heck isn't on that yellow chair behind them. Not always is it up to him, though. His mere presence on the court brings new life to the building and a new fear in the eyes of the opponents who step into the Jungle.

Will he be rusty when he returns? You bet. It will take him a while. But if we remember back to last year, when he played in those few games, all it took was him being on the court and suddenly we saw a completely different team. The Celtics had a reason to play, and were motivated to win. We have seen lapses since KG going down, where it looked like the C's all but gave up.

The Lakers are where we thought they woudl be. With their soft schedule to begin to season, they are finally starting to pick up on their road schedule. We knew they would start the first half of the season out ahead of the Celtics. Now is the time when everyone is coming back, and the Celtics are looking forward to games where they can show their strength. Remember, the Lakers still have 11 road games they need to make up. ELEVEN. As for the Cavs, we'll what happens when the C's and Cavs meet again later in the season.
