KG on knee questions: ‘That [stuff] is getting old’

WALTHAM  –  Kevin Garnett [1] reached his breaking point on Friday afternoon with questions about whether he is physically ready and back to 100 percent following surgery last May to remove bone spurs behind his right knee.

“Next question,” he answered when asked.

But the question was asked moments later, in a different way.

“I just told you. That [stuff] is getting old, now. That [stuff] getting real old. You’re going to have to sit in your offices and come up with some new questions. Drink a little more beer now or whatever gets you going to come up with your questions.”

Told that he’s likely going to hear that same question all season long, Garnett replied, “You’re going to get the same answer, alright?”

Eddie House [2] drew a comparison to another famous New England athlete returning from a knee injury.

“I’m very happy he’s back, he’s moving well,” House said. “He’s even taken a few blows to the spot where he had the surgery and he bounced back up. It’s kind of like the Tom Brady [3] effect. At first, he’s kind of ginger. He doesn’t really know until he gets hit a couple of times. ‘I can plant, I can throw.’ Like Kevin, now he can catch lobs, can plant, step-backs. He’s doing everything Kevin Garnett does.”
