“We’re parts that will help move this team forward, and we’re here to assist them and help the younger guys,” Garnett said.
• KG is looking forward to playing with D-Will.
“He’s hungry,” KG said. “He’s one of the premier point guards in the NBA now and in the future.”
• KG, one of the most intense players in the NBA, revealed that playing for Doc Rivers made him more relaxed and comfortable.
“I wasn’t used to a coach making me comfortable, joking with me and getting in on the personal side," he said. "That was new to me, and it actually helped me."
• Garnett said he’s been to Brooklyn before with former teammate Stephon Marbury. They went to play basketball on a court in Marbury’s projects where grew up called The Garden.
• Garnett would not say the team has a two-year window.
“I want to just take this process one day at a time, nothing more, nothing less than that,” he said.
• Garnett on the team’s expectations: “You don’t gather to win a series. You don’t put a team like this together to go to the conference finals or whatever. The ultimate goal is what it is, and that’s the reason why we’re here."
• KG is glad Reggie Evans is still a Net. In fact, he seemed more happy with the fact that Evans was on the roster than Andrei Kirilenko joining the squad, though KG did say the addition of AK-47 was a big move.
