Garnett Updates 8/2

Garnett threw out the first pitch at Fenway Park on Wednesday night.

Lang Whitaker /SLAM Online posts an interview with KG from last summer in which the player talks about the Red Sox.

Shira Springer/Boston Globe breaks down KG's new contract.

From Steve Bulpett/Boston Herald:
“I think once KG realizes how much the Celtics really want him, he’ll really settle in there well,” said someone close to the situation. “You’ll be amazed at how fast he becomes a Celtic. I think Kevin really likes belonging. He takes relationships very seriously.”

Flip Saunders on watching KG's pre-draft work out:
"You could see his passion, how he worked out, that he was going to be something really special," Saunders said.

From Rick Kamla/
On behalf of the great state of ‘Sota, I want to wish KG nothing but happiness and success in Boston, and I want to thank him for never taking a day off, always carrying himself with the utmost class, and delivering many of the greatest memories in Minnesota sports history.
