Umm....can someone tell me who "Gethin Coolbaugh" is.....?
Have NEVER heard of him...
cheesy source from the sound of it. I'll wait patiently until KG officially says something
He's the regional editor for SBNation, and others have reported it. The quote is legitimate.
Trust me, I'm the first guy who calls shenanigans on bad sources. I don't bring cheese to the party.
Yeah, but if you listen to the youtube vid that ImShak posted, KG just sounds likes he's talking about the AS weekend....doesn't sound like he's getting shipped out of town or anything.
I'm still not reading too much into this - especially after the youtube clip from ImShak.
I have to say I'm a bit concerned with this.
To me KG looked a little bigger and emotional in the video interview there - he was talking very 'matter of fact' without any of his usual jokes, and at a few points it looked like his eyes were glassing over and borderline tearing up.
There is another possibility as well - it's possible that DA has told the guys that a key player is going to be traded, maybe Pierce or Rondo.
The other day pregame somebody asked KG if he can imagine the team without Paul Pierce, and he replied with "I can't and I won't". To me that was a pretty strong indication that if Pierce is traded out, KG is as good as gone.
Maybe Danny has worked a trade for Pierce, and KG has told DA that he will finish this season with the team, and then he's done.
One way or other this didn't look or sound like a simple "I don't think i'll be good enough to play in the All Star game", I looked and sounded more like a "I won't be around to play in the All Star game".
Also the "You don't know what I know" doesn't sound to me like KG suggesting he's just decided to retire for no reason. If it was this, he would have been thinking about it constantly and most likely hold the thought until after the season. This sounded like a very direct response to something major that has happened, which has instantly made his mind for him.
