Kevin Garnett's frustration spilled over on New Year's Day. After a miserable night vs. archrival Tim Duncan and another blowout loss, KG told reporters he is out of rhythm, doesn't know where he fits in the Nets offense and announced, "I am not a loser."
Beat writers recorded it all.
Kevin Garnett said he has no rhythm and he doesn't know where he fits into the offense.— Stefan Bondy (@NYDNInterNets) January 1, 2014
KG continued: ". ...But I put time into my craft for it to come out. But then that’s rhythm on offense. And I don’t have that right now."— Stefan Bondy (@NYDNInterNets) January 1, 2014
KG: "I'm not a loser. ... I try to be a professional & I try to give everything I have. Put Father Time on top of that, it doesn't help ..."— Rod Boone (@rodboone) January 1, 2014
This was the first time he acknowledged his confidence being shaken at all by his shooting, or even that "Father Time" is gaining on him.— Tim Bontemps (@TimBontemps) January 1, 2014
Jason Kidd was asked about KG's minutes...
I asked Jason Kidd if he is holding back Garnett's minutes to save him for the playoffs. Kidd said it's to get Garnett through the season.— Stefan Bondy (@NYDNInterNets) January 1, 2014
In other news out of practice, which was held in San Antonio before depaturing for Oklahoma City, Andrei Kirilenko fully participated and Kidd said he'd likely get a few more minutes.
