BOSTON (CBS) – The Boston Celtics have come up with plenty of analogies for their still-forming team chemistry this season, but Kevin Garnett should get the award for the best one yet.
Following the Celtics 100-94 overtime win over the Washington Wizards, Garnett was asked about the development of the team’s chemistry. He likened it to certain on-demand options where you can’t fast forward through the commercials.
“You can’t speed chemistry up. I think the more you practice, the more you get familiar with each other, there’s no hitting the fast-forward button here,” Garnett said following his 20 point, 13 rebound performance. “You’ve got Comcast, right? You know there’s some shows you can’t fast-forward through, you just gotta let it go so you can watch the silly-ass commercials and be pissed. That’s what this is.”
Kevin Garnett On Team Chemistry:
Garnett quickly realized that Comcast carries the Celtics games, but that didn’t stop him from having fun.
“Did I just take a shot at Comcast? [Expletive] it, I did. So what? I’m more of a DirecTV guy anyway,” he joked. “This is what this is. I’m not helping myself, right? [Expletive] it. Anyway, that’s what this is. I just totally messed that up.”
As for the team chemistry, plain and simple, it’s going to take some time.
“It’s one of those things where it’s just gotta take its course and you can’t speed anything up,” finished Garnett. “Next question.”
The Celtics improved to 2-2 on the season with Wednesday night’s win. They next host the Philadelphia 76ers at the Garden on Friday night.
