Patriots Like Garnett Trade

With the Celtics acquiring Kevin Garnett from the Minnesota Timberwolves this afternoon, we needed to find a way to tie that in with the Patriots somehow.

Well, Garnett, in a 2004 interview with American Way Magazine, revealed that he is a huge NFL fan and a friend of Randy Moss, who of course spent the first part of his career playing in Minnesota with the Vikings.

As much as I can, I like to take my friends to other local pro sporting events. I’m a huge NFL fan, and I’m friends with Vikings receiver Randy Moss.

With Moss now with the Patriots, Garnett has an old friend from Minnesota to hang out with. I think this might mean we’ll see Moss at some Celtics games this winter as well.

Mike Reiss this afternoon talks to Patriots linebacker Adalius Thomas, who is also a huge basketball fan. Thomas offered his thoughts on Garnett:

“I really admire the way he plays the game,” Thomas said after the Patriots’ training camp practice this morning. “A big, tall guy who can run, shoot and dribble, who really hustles and does his job well, it’s going to be exciting to see him in there.”

So it appears the Garnett trade is going to be well received by at least two Patriots.


  1. KFAN (Minneapolis sports talk) this morning was discussing how Garnett and Moss hung out together. Wait until CHB gets his hands on that one; How could the model teammate and the trouble child possibly be friends?

  2. “In tomorrow’s Globe, Nick Cafardo talks with new Celtic Kevin Garnett about the pressure of playing in the same town with the Red Sox.”

  3. “Hey Kevin, the Red Sox have a ‘KG’, too. Care to comment?”

  4. Not even up a week yet and we’re quoting ‘American Way Magazine’ about basketball. Perhaps I was too hard on Nick Cafardo earlier.

  5. Ouch. That hurts.

  6. “This weeks note from an Airline magazine” will now be a part of Peter King’s column BOOK IT

  7. Poor Doc Chuck… the Sox get Quebecois’ own Eric Gagne and no one could give a crap in this town right now.

    But in all seriousness, I think the Celtics going to have a lot of fans this year, and it may be that for this first time in a long time the Boston athletes getting the biggest cheers in the Garden will be Celtics instead of Patriots.

  8. This Boston thing is just way too good, is there anyone out there who would trade Boston for any other city ?
