I've been on board with this trade since Day 1 - though like many I understood we'd be giving up good young players to get him. Statistically I knew Garnett was good... and I'd seen him play occassionally. And like most around here I'm amazed at how good a player he truly is - there is no question he has the talents of some of the alltime greats in basketball But I had NO idea what a great teammate, cheerleader and outright leader this guy was. I give Pierce tons of credit for having an ego and security that is willing to share that spotlight and responsibility with Garnett as well, but to see how Garnett has come in here, rallied the team together, taken younger players under his wing, been their biggest supporters on the bench - and maintained an outrageously high level of energy that is taking this team to new heights of dominance in the entire NBA... Well THAT'S what's really floored me... I had NO idea Garnett was bringing such positive energy to this team and I gotta tip my cap to him and the entire team for checking their egos at the door and buying into this concept. I think part of it is the "big three" knows that they've really just got probably three years together - and there's really no time to waste as even some of the best teams can fall short of the championship But man - I just hope Garnett and everyone can keep it up... if he maintains this attitude and brings a champtionship he's going to be among the alltime Boston sports hereo's no doubt about it ... and I kindof get the feeling that Garnett knows this too!
