KG: I’m ready to go

WALTHAM – Kevin Garnett [1] pronounced himself ready for the 2009-10 season during media day for the Boston Celtics [2] on Monday.

“I’m refreshed and ready to go. 5 on 5 starts tomorrow and I’ll be ready,” said Garnett, who is back after summer surgery to repair bone spurs behind his right knee.

“There are no restrictions,” Celtics coach Doc Rivers [3] added. “Right now we have no medical restrictions on any player”.

The team left at 4:30 Monday afternoon for Salve Regina University, where they will begin training camp on Tuesday. Celtics captain Paul Pierce [4] said that Garnett looked ready to go from what he saw of him during an informal 5-on-5 pickup game last week.

“It was like a breath of fresh air,” Pierce said.
