Title: KG and the anti-rythym block.

Stumbled upon this YouTube clip. Solid gold.

Loved the block against Amar'e. I was laughing like crazy.

I love KG. One of the best competitors of all time. Works just as hard in his twilight years as he did when he came to the league. His work ethic and love for the game is very impressive. Have to love that as a fan.

    "The funny thing is, I wish he would be quiet on the floor and not call out your plays," the Nets coach said in a bemused and complimentary tone Thursday morning prior to his team's nationally-televised contest against KG's Celtics. "He's seen so much. We'll call a play and he'll say, 'Joe [Johnson] is going over here and Deron [Williams] is going here.' It's not funny anymore, OK?


    "As much as (Rajon) Rondo quarterbacks their offense, (KG) quarterbacks their defense. ... I like every now and then when we'll surprise him with something, and then maybe he'll look at the bench and curse the other coaches out, not me."

Best Defender of the decade? Oh yeah.


The Garnett Rule...Never really thought of it much. He's a mastermind.

I remember Bass doing this too last season. Or was it Big Baby the season before last, canīt remember. Anyway that shows how much of an impact KG has on the teams mindset.

Another thing I think is a KG original is running full speed to help a teammate off the floor.  My belief is that focus on this originated in the Ubuntu season.
 
Obviously, teammates have helped teammates up off the floor before, but it seems this was a KG-type intensive commitment made every time a teammate hit the floor.  It has spread throughout the league, but I believe that this about KG.   Anyone have any evidence to either support or refute this?

I think MJ did it better, he slapped Pippen when he gave his hand to help someone of the opponent to get up. But yeah KG is the epitomy of a perfect team mate. He is the most important piece of this team.

Ahahaa noticed Sully's talking these past few games as well "You by ya self....by ya self!!!"

He takes the criticism too which is how he's learning it. I heard KG getting on him to set a pick "Set, set, set....come on Sully sh--"

I love it  8)
