Former Raptors player (and one-time Net) calls Kevin Garnett 'a talker who can't back it up!'

Former Raptors player (and one-time Net) calls Kevin Garnett 'a talker who can't back it up!'

When you think of a former Raptors players who also played for the New Jersey Nets you probably think Vince Carter first, second and third. Well, do you remember when Jamaal Magloire played for the Nets (2007)? No? How about when he played for the Raptors (2011-12)? Probably not, eh? Well, Magloire, who is now associated with the Raptors, in some fashion, has gotten the trash-talking itch, and he went to the Toronto Globe and Mail to scratch it. Cathl Kelly asked Magloire to respond to Kevin Garnett's comment responding to Masai Ujiri's "F--- Brooklyn!" comment. You know, this one. Kelly...

Toronto Raptors’ DeMar DeRozan still has a long way to go in offensive development; Kevin Garnett still talking trash

DeRozan’s baskets do not come easily. Sometimes, they do not come efficiently, although his ability to get to the line helps mitigate that

KG should be receiving more minutes

KG should be receiving more minutes

We are now two games into the postseason and Kevin Garnett has played 39 minutes. Alan Anderson is averaging as many minutes as Garnett and Mirza Teletovic has played four less minutes overall. I understand that Jason Kidd has been very stringent on playing Garnett in the 20-22 minute range in order to save him for the playoffs. But the playoffs are here and Garnett is still being restricted in how often he plays. KG is no long a 30-minute player anymore. He is 37 and now has a back problem. That we know. What we also know is that Garnett is the Nets best defender in the paint and does the...

Kevin Garnett: 'I don't know if you can say 'F*** Brooklyn' and then come into Brooklyn'

The Toronto Raptors rebounded against the Brooklyn Nets on Tuesday night -- quite literally, to the tune of 52-30 off the glass -- beating the Nets in Game 2, 100-95, and evening the series at 1-1. Now, the series heads to Brooklyn on Friday night, where the Nets look to protect home court. After Tuesday's loss, the human soundbite, Kevin Garnett, gave us another gem. First, speaking about the 36 points the Nets allowed in the fourth quarter, Garnett said, "Thirty-six points, that's too many points, for anybody -- preschool, little league, YMCA, Raptors -- too many points." He then followed...

Kevin Garnett shrugs off officiating complaints; Disgraced former referee Tim Donaghy cries 'conspiracy'

Kevin Garnett shrugs off officiating complaints; Disgraced former referee Tim Donaghy cries 'conspiracy'

There's a lot of talk about the Game 1 officiating during Saturday's first round matchup between the Brooklyn Nets and the Toronto Raptors, as the two teams get ready to face off on Tuesday night for Game 2. Dwane Casey and a number of the Raptors players and media members think that the officials and the league are conspiring against them, giving the Nets "superstar calls" and not blowing the whistle on the other side of the ball. Of course, I don't believe that to be true, as I wrote about on Tuesday morning. Neither too do Kevin Garnett or Paul Pierce, who have been through their fair...

Raptors will try to slow down Joe Johnson in ‘must win’ Game 2

TORONTO — After Saturday’s Game 1 win in Toronto, a massive crowd of reporters stood around Kevin Garnett — who had a mere five points on 1-of-5 shooting. Meanwhile, the game’s leading scorer stood by his locker for a few …

Garnett, Pierce support vital to point guard’s success

KG, Pierce know success is tied to D-Will

TORONTO -- When Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce were brought to Brooklyn to lead the Nets to the Finals, the two veterans knew a key component to accomplishing their mission would be their ability to unlock the best out of Deron Williams. The same can be said for Jason Kidd when he was hired to coach the Nets. Much of their success is tied to Williams. So throughout the season, Pierce, Garnett and Kidd chose certain moments -- and sometimes measured words -- to motivate, build and prod the point guard.

NBA Playoff Predictions

There are literally hundreds of online sources you can spend time on for NBA first-round playoff previews but this is one of them. 3) Toronto Raptors vs. 6) Brooklyn Nets (2-2) Kevin Garnett's season-high was 16 points. It came on November 18, 2013, in a loss at Portland, in which he shot 8-of-19. He missed 19 games in March and April. Brooklyn went 16-3 in that stretch. KG returned for five games late in the year, never cracking even 20 minutes in any of them. The Nets went 2-3 in those games. They beat Miami in the one game in that stretch he was rested. I think what I'm trying to say is...

Playoff predictions: Raptors v. Nets

The good news is that the national media will finally pay attention to the Raptors. The bad news is it's gonna happen two weeks from now, when they play LeBron James. 3) Toronto Raptors vs. 6) Brooklyn Nets (2-2) Kevin Garnett's season-high was 16 points.

Kevin Garnett is who he is, and what he is is what he's become, which is...Kevin Jesus?

First off, it's a big day for the team over at Hardwood Paroxysm and their editor Matt Moore, who do a fantastic job at waxing intelligently about the NBA. And we offer up our congratulations and wish them well in their new endeavor. Miles Wray has an interesting perspective piece over at Hardwood Paroxysm with an explanation about who Kevin Garnett is and ultimately how his career will end, whether it be this year or next with the Brooklyn Nets. Garnett, who is in his 19th season in the NBA, his first with the Nets, has had what could be considered -- on paper at least -- his "worst"...

Starting Five: Which center gets left out?

NEW YORK -- Before Sunday night’s game, Brooklyn Nets coach Jason Kidd said that he’d love to play all three of his centers -- Kevin Garnett, Mason Plumlee and Andray Blatche -- in the playoffs, but realistically, one of them is probably going to be the odd man out. It’s certainly not going to be Garnett. That’s why the Nets traded for him. And the way Plumlee is playing right now, it doesn’t appear that it’s going to be him either.

Nets dispose of Magic easily, 97-88

Nets dispose of Magic easily, 97-88

The Nets kicked off their final week of the regular season with a 97-88 over the Orlando Magic. The crowd was fairly electric for a Sunday early evening game against the lowly Magic, but the Nets were not. Brooklyn came out sloppy, committing seven turnovers in the first quarter despite shooting 58% from the floor. The Nets played inside and off of cuts. On the very first play Deron Williams went back-door on Victor Oladipo for an easy finish off the pass from Kevin Garnett. The highlight of the quarter was when Marcus Thornton threw the ball to nearly the top of the backboard where Mason...
