Kevin Garnett is a huge jerk who no one likes and no one outside of Boston wants to do well. He’s the meanest guy in the NBA and everyone is happy when struggles befall him. He needs to chill out and everyone knows it. These are commonly held beliefs, even if they might be a little overblown and we’re the ones that need to chill out.

But there’s one thing that’s for sure, he’s not faking it. Just ask Doc Rivers. From ESPN:

“I thought it was an act,” Rivers admitted. “I’m thinking, ‘No way.’ But then he came here and I realized, ‘Oh my gosh, this is for real.’ And the first thing I thought was, ‘This is going to be great for our basketball team.’”

Yep, seems real. A little too real, actually. “No one man should have all that intensity.” — Wanye Kest

But really, this isn’t that surprising. Of course, Kevin Garnett is the most intense man in the world — new Dos Equis campaign, if they want to pay for the idea — it’s what makes him so good at defense, which in turn makes him really good at basketball, which in turn makes the Celtics a championship contender. It’s a dominoes thing, and Kevin Garnett’s intensity is the nerdy guy who really wants to be on “America’s Funniest Home Videos.”

Besides, this is good news. Imagine how scary Kevin Garnett would be if all that stuff was acting.

  1. The best thing about that picture is Perk photobombing.

  2. No one cared when KG was The Most Intense Man in the World™ in Minnesota. But as soon as he comes to Boston his intensity/douchebaggery is a crime against humanity. Just sayin’.

  3. All ya’ll haters can eat a dick.. REALTALKS.

    No but seriously, he busts his ass every game. Made a few of peoples NBA boyfriends cry and now everyone on his case.

    THIS IS BASKET BALL NOT CURLING.

    GROW A DICK KID.

  4. I’m just glad he plays basketball. Could you imagine if he took up another profession? Imagine if he were a politician or a surgeon or a pilot!

  5. Basketball is a game of intensity. I think we have a sport of too many pansies. We need some people like KG to grow up and play with some more intensity.

  6. Great article. Great comments. I’m glad we’re past that stage where everyone was hating on him for no reason.

  7. Gennaro Gattuso would eat kg for breakfast in a contest of intensity.
