It’s no secret that Kevin Garnett is a pretty intense individual. The legendary Celtic better known as KG has made teammates cry, screamed for fans to get loud during the pregame introductions at Celtics home games and is intimidating enough to make any weak-minded basketball player crap his pants.
However, Garnett can’t be all business 24 hours a day. If he were, then he would probably be a robot.
I guess that wouldn’t be a surprise, considering how he played out of his mind as a 36-year-old center this past season during Boston’s surprising playoff run. But I’m going to assume that Garnett lets his guard down some time off the court.
Maybe the best place to witness a vulnerable Garnett is at a friendly neighborhood bar. A Celtics fan could very well discover a softer, warmer side to Garnett over a beer or two at one of Boston’s endless number of welcoming Irish pubs.
And chances are Garnett would pick up the tab, too. You would hope so, considering that the 14-time NBA All Star has earned over $300 million in his pro career.
