Wednesday, August 28th, 2019

That's why the 2007-08 Celtics were so thrilled to acquire Kevin Garnett, a perennial All-Star who also set the tone as Boston's emotional leader. The winning culture Garnett established alongside Paul Pierce and Ray Allen immediately paid dividends in a 2008 NBA title -- not unlike a New England Patriots team that won three Super Bowls in four years behind a similarly fiery young quarterback. Back in Boston for the annual Hoop Dreams charity event for the ABCD (Action for Boston Community Development) anti-poverty agency, former Celtics head coach Doc Rivers invoked Tom Brady's name when describing Garnett's impact on the Celtics.

On ESPN's The Jump recently, Boston Celtics guard Marcus Smart delivered one of those straight-no-chaser sermons on the state of the team during the Kyrie Irving era and why he was so adamant about defending him. The incessant dumping on Irving for what ailed the Celtics, the new sport of choice in New England this summer, was not part of Smart's monologue as he portrayed the ex-Celtic in a very different light than the stories you keep hearing about now that Irving is in Brooklyn. In listening to Smart talk about the past, you can't help but think about its impact on this team's future.
