Kevin Garnett hates to lose. Kevin Garnett can be intense about it. If this is that obvious to me, you’d think his teammates would have quite a good handle on Garnett”s personality. Or maybe Glen ‘Big Baby’ Davis of the Boston Celtics is just a sensitive guy…..maybe he really is a ‘Big Baby’?
In the fourth quarter of tonight’s game between the Boston Celtics and Portland Trailblazers, the Celtics bench let a 25-pt Celtics lead slip a bit. A timeout ensued and Garnett wasn’t shy about telling his teammates that they weren’t playing ‘up to par’. Glen Davis got angry….then he cried. Yes you read that correctly, he cried. Like tears. From his eyes.
It reminded me of the Tom Hanks line from the movie A League of Their Own, “There’s no crying in baseball, c’mon there’s NO CRYING IN BASEBALL!”
