Kevin Garnett is arguably one of the most underrated players of all-time. He spent most of his career with the Timberwolves, but the team failed to build a championship roster around him. It was not until he joined the Boston Celtics that KG got the sole ring of his career.
After becoming an NBA champion, Garnett gave one of the most memorable speeches. The Big Ticket was known for his impressive trash talk and demoralizing opponents.
The former MVP recently appeared on the “Load Management” podcast, where he shared his thoughts on the NBA Bubble.
“To be honest with y’all, we could never play in the Bubble. You know how much I’ve been screaming during your shot? Get that sh*t outta here! You would’ve heard me in here, bro. Man, they’d of had a bunch of censors. Couldn’t have all these cameras, you know players walking around naked, b*lls swinging all type thing.
“That’s a different league, we were men, yo, we out here talking to each other, we trying to figure out the pick and roll, we ain’t switching, you know, it was just totally different. It would have been barbaric. We could have never been in a situation like this.”
“We could NEVER play in the bubble… you know how much I’ll be screaming ‘get that sh*t out of here’… players walking around naked, balls swinging…”
KG said his generation couldn’t do a bubble. 💀

Honestly, Garnett is accurate about the players being much more vocal and physical during his time. Nowadays, the league has gone soft for better or worse. Whatever be the case, if it weren’t for the Orlando Bubble, the fans wouldn’t have a chance to watch basketball for a long time.
Right now, the NBA Finals are almost upon us. Also, Garnett’s former team, the Celtics have a chance to make a Finals appearance after a very long time.
Will the Celtics finally win the title post Kevin Garnett era?
The Celtics are battling against the Miami Heat for a ticket to the NBA finals. Although they are down 2-1 in the series, this Boston team can certainly make a comeback.
They were the ones who eliminated the reigning champs in the ECSF, with an all-around performance. Furthermore, with the Bucks already out of the playoffs, the Celtics are the favorite to represent the East in the NBA Finals.
But what do you think? Can they defeat the Miami Heat? Or will the young Boston team have to wait another year to have a shot at the NBA title?
