KG on being the villain: I could care less

WALTHAM — Kevin Garnett knows that on Friday night in Miami he will be the the target of fans ire, and he said that he doesn’t really care.

“I don’€™t expect any of us to get any cheers down there and I’€™m no different from that,” Garnett said after the Celtics held a short practice Wednesday. “I’€™m not saying I’€™m the villain or the hero. I could care less. I’€™ve played on the road before. Hell I played in San Antonio and I know they hate me there for whatever reasons. So this should be no different. I could care less.”

Garnett, of course, was suspended for Game 2 after throwing an elbow at Miami’s Quentin Richardson late in the series opener. He watched the game at Danny Ainge’s house and praised Glen Davis for his energy. There’s a line between energy and being out of control and it’s one that Garnett straddles at times.

“I don’€™t know if Kevin can get more fired up for a game, that’€™s just who he is,” Doc Rivers said. “We want him to stay that way. It’€™s important for him to play with that edge. I think he’€™ll come out being the villain because I think he enjoys that anyway.”
