KG's blog: 'Kev, do what you do'

By Chris Forsberg


Blogging machine Kevin Garnett checked in with another entry on his ANTA shoe blog Wednesday, offering thoughts on his role in Boston's Game 2 win over the New York Knicks and finishing second in the Defensive Player of the Year balloting behind Orlando's Dwight Howard.

On scoring the pivotal basket in Tuesday's 96-93 triumph, Garnett writes, "[Celtics coach] Doc [Rivers] said, 'Get the ball to KG on the post, and Kev, do what you do.'" Garnett adds, "Glad I could do my part and felt good to hold home court. That's all we did though, hold home court. We gotta come out firing next game."

On the Defensive Player of the Year balloting, Garnett writes: "Just heard that I was voted second. Didn't even think about it this year, but nice to see that the hard work our team does gets recognized. Every day is a defensive day for me."

Here's the full, unedited entry from the ANTA blog:
Game #2 at home vs. Knicks. Same issues, where we go hard, then don't execute. Rondo played with his foot on the gas all night. Young fella getting after it. Same result, we had to dig deep, get stops at the end and execute on the offensive end. Doc said, get the ball to KG on the post, and KEV, DO WHAT YOU DO. YOu'll be isolated on Jared. Had to do it and this is why I do my moves every day. End result was a bucket, but no let up. Got a tip on the other end and a time out. Game over. Glad I could do my part and felt good to hold home court. That's all we did though, hold home court. we gotta come out firing next game.

Congrats to Young fella D. Howard for Defensive player of the year. Just heard that I was voted 2nd. Didn't even think about it this year, but nice to see that the hard work our team does gets recognized. Every day is a defensive day for me.

Trying to download videos, but doesn't seem to be working. Will work on it.
What you all think of my Anta Swag?
