According to the Boston Celtics, Kevin Garnett had arthroscopic knee surgery to have bone spurs removed from his knee. Garnett was limited to only 57 games this season due to the injury. The money quote from Doc Rivers:

“I expect Kevin to return to active duty in full force and be that consummate two-way professional that he has shown all of us throughout his fantastic NBA career.”

Consummate professional my ass. Did Doc Rivers happen to notice how Garnett behaved on the bench during the playoffs? I’m not going to say the guy is classless, but the asshole quotient was off the charts whenever they showed him on camera, not to mention these sort of antics that have pervaded his behavior on the court throughout his entire career.

Yeah, that’s a consummate professional right there. KG is the ultimate competitor and he wears his emotions on his sleeve (a phrase I never understood), but I doubt anyone intends to use footage like this to teach kids how to play the game the right way.
