Garnett shouldn't be starting. Some guys out there are playing better than him. Chris Bosh [sh]ould take Garnett's spot; he's playing way better than him.
Red Auerbach had a conversation with Bill Russell when he first joined the Celtics and the same conversation with Bill Walton when he did. Both players expressed concern that their pay would be tied to statistics.
"That's not how it works with the Celtics," Red replied.
"At the end of the season, my only question is whether you helped us win, and I think I already know the answer to that question."
It strikes me as odd that no Celtic fans, no talking heads, and no writers have called out KG because he's not putting up bigger numbers. But because Chris Bosh's numbers are slightly better than KG's numbers (23/10 v. 16/9), Gary Payton thinks Chris Bosh deserves to start ahead of KG in the All-Star game.
Da Glove always impressed me as a savvy player, wise to the real world of hoops.
Obviously, he fooled me on that one.
