Anta brand shoes featuring the all-time Celtics v Lakers head-to-head record. It's no Jordan IV or Jordan XI, but odd choice of number seeing as the games will continue. Maybe do the playoff records instead.

Something pathetic about this, considering Garnett has been around for a fraction of those victories... and now he's trying to come across like an all-time Celtic great who's been through years of battles against the Lakers. Where were his "21-49" shoes when he was with Minnesota...?

That strap on the front is hideous. And yeah, very weird to put the number of games. They'll become obsolete after they play their next game. Should have done titles.

Maybe not a all time Celtic great but he will be always be considered Celtic royalty.

All the new generation of NBA fan cares about is the last 20 years (maybe less). So since 1990, the Celtics have won how many championships? oh yeah...1.
I guess 1-5 doesn't look so good on a green shoe.

OK, maybe they will care about the record of KG's Celts

Maybe KG should just put the amount of championships "his Celtics" have won vs "Kobe's Lakers" in the last 3 seasons...well, now there's another boring number.
1-2

I personally love this, and I'm a lifelong Lakers fan. KG may act like a d-bag at times, but nobody can question how hard that guy plays and how much he cares for his team and loves the game. For those reasons alone he has my highest respect...but I still hate him. I will say this though, if Garnett was traded to LA instead of Boston I'd have a #5 KG jersey in my closet right now.

It's a rivalry.
KG's shoes were of course going to incite debate, a response, et al.
I think that's the point. He certainly isn't doing it to warm the hearts of any Laker fans, so what did you expect? A tribute?

without saying it, we ALL love this *&*&* and it makes it interesting. besides, I'll bet you any amount that the number of Laker/Kobe hate threads dwarfs the KG ones.

me? I'm just enjoying the rivalry and all the spoils and rhetoric it incites.

Don't like KG or the Celtics, but I love the shoes. Even as a Lakers fan. I think it's cool that he's proud of the franchise and knows the history. It's a salute to the generations of Celtic greats and I have no problem with that. He should be proud and honored to be a part of the organization, and this is a cool way of showing it.

Welp, I bet you Bird would absolutely do something similar. Or, he would look directly into the eyes of the opposition and say "Get someone out here that can guard me..."

Garnett is a competitor, and is very much a part of Celtics/Lakers history now. I like that he is proud of being a Celtic, and can celebrate what other Celtic greats have done before him.

I wouldn't give a **** if Kobe wore a 120-152 sneak, or had a symbolic rose tattoo with 6/30/2003 nearby.

They're cool, they're nostalgic, it shows how amazing the rivalry is...and it shows the players are aware. Again, I think they're neat. Maybe if I'm a Laker fan I think otherwise, but I'm not. Who cares how long he's been a Celtic? He is now...and that's all that matters. He's part of the Celtic fraternity forever.

Well, Garnett was a major contributer from 2008-present. So, to say he had "no part in what so ever" is stupid and wrong.

The Garnett acquisition was the absolute biggest reason the Celtics won in 2008. So, bringing a title to Boston for the first time in 22 years is a pretty significant accomplishment. And that, by itself, will cement a spot in Celtics history for Kevin Garnett.

No that was the injuries of 2 Lakers starters, their starting C and 2nd best defender SG Ariza. Nice try though, you're adorable.

Injuries happen and are no excuse. The Lakers lost. But hey if we're talking injuries then Perkins being hurt for the last two games during the last finals shouldn't count either right?

Doesn't matter for a few reasons. If Bynum doesn't get hurt, Gasol never comes to LA.

Celtics would have likely STILL beat LA that year with Bynum and Gasol, and 7th/8th man Trevor Ariza, would would not have been a major factor.

Ariza played 24 games for the Lakers that year. You are really calling that a major loss? Since becoming a starter, Ariza has been exposed as a one trick pony. An athletic player with no consistency whatsoever. An overachieving bench/role player that got a fat contract, went to the bank, and never came back.

AND- Ariza only started 3 games for the Lakers. And he played in the playoffs, and the Finals. Dude was not a starter.

Injuries happen, deal with it.






Or I could delete all this and say.

Bynum is always hurt. Using that as an excuse is just retarted.

OBVIOUSLY GARNETT HAD A HUGE IMPACT ON THEIR ONLY TITLE IN 22 YEARS come on bro obviously I know that.

What I meant was he was barely involved in the 150-122 or whatever the exact number is he shouldn't be bragging and being arrogant about other peoples accomplishments (dang I can't spell)

You dont see Kobe repping 16 on shoes for 16 championships, if he were to rep any number on his shoes it would be for 5, dont take credit for the work of other legends. He's obviously a low life instigator and just needs to grow up. I'm not saying his intensity is wrong, I played the same kind of ball when i was in highschool I would get real intense and even yell quite a bit when i would start pouring in the 3s, but i was yelling on my way back down the court playing D or yelling on my jog back to the time out huddle because the other team was trying to break my momentum, i didn't scream in their face rubbing it in that i just drained 5 threes in the first half, or that my high school had a record of 33-2 our best season. I was just trying to keep up my teams intensity so we didnt slow down and kept our foot on the gas, Garnett is just a prick

You can be intense but also show class towards other teams and players

Well, Garnett's intensity and passion changed the mentality of Cletics basketball for the better. So, I have no problem with it. I am glad he is pumped for this game. Celtics/Lakers is the signature event of the NBA. The best they have to offer.

KG is a leader, and this is just a little reminder to his team of what Celtics/Lakers is all about.

Maybe he is not trying to take credit, but just remind everyone what Celtics and Lakers is all about.

And people only hate KG for the wrong reasons. If he was a Laker, you would love him, for the same reason you love Kobe. And don't even try to deny it, because that would make you a liar.

Some goods points, hard to argue with the first bolded statement

And actually I hate him for the right reasons>he's a prick, a jerk, and he's arrogant, You dont see Kobe straight ripping people apart screaming in their faces (maybe he has once or twice when he was younger, but he's clearly matured into a great role model, where as KG is still messing around with immature punk antiques

None the less Garnett=douche... but also = one of the greatest PF to ever play the game

Actually i take back what i said about that being a fair statement, if he wanted to show everyone what lakers and celtics were all about maybe he should have gotten "Celtics vs Lakers" or something relevant to that to show his passion and love for one of the greatest rivalries of all time, he is clearly rubbing it in that they have about 30 more wins in the rivalry

He is just honoring the storied rivalry, that's all. Jesus, some of you guys are so easily offended. We get it, you're fan of this or that team, you will defend them to death and hate any other team. Just be a fan of the game, nobody is gonna die over it.

And THREE other all-stars? If I recall, only Ray and Pierce were all-stars at the time. And who cares if he needed All-Stars to pull off a title? Kobe needed ONE OF THE MOST DOMINANT big men to EVER lace em up, and now his cast is more than respectable with Gasol, Odom, Bynum, Artest, etc. Like Kobe won all those titles by himself. Gimme a break. Just be a fan, that's really all you can do. You're not a GM, a coach, or a player. By bashing on other teams and players, you're just giving your team a bad look.

I don't mean to single you out, but it's just that all these heated comments make me sick to my stomach. There's so much criticism going on on these forums, and it repeats itself every god damn day. There's some good, constructive posters on here, but everyday the same shxt and same old insults and boring topics are sooooooooo off-putting.

"My comment to Charlie Villanueva was in fact 'You are cancerous to your team and our league,'" Garnett said. "I would never be insensitive to the brave struggle that cancer patients endure. I have lost loved ones to this deadly disease and have a family member currently undergoing treatment. I would never say anything that distasteful. The game of life is far bigger than the game of basketball."

After the game Garnett said: "I'm a passionate player. If you don't like the way I am ... I play this way the last 15, 16 years. I leave it on the court."

Rivers was frustrated by the incident.

"I actually heard what Kevin said, I was standing right there, and what he released [in a statement through the Celtics organization] is what he said," Rivers said before Wednesday's game. "I'm going to leave it at that. I don't like the whole tweeting thing, I'll state that as well. I think guys talk on the court, that doesn't mean they should or shouldn't. But the fact that we're talking about this, to me, is just silly. It really is.

"We should be talking about [how] we had a hell of a game the other day and let's talk about basketball. It's amazing to me that this stuff is news now, that's not sports.

KG is clearly the type of player who can get so angry he says stupid things that he later regrets and has to cover up, in this situation it was an easy cover up, going from you look like a cancer patient to you are a cancer to your team. He obviously said cancer patient cause the dude doesnt have a single hair on his body, how does cancer patient even sound like cancer to your team, one is 2 words the other 4, i think it would be quite hard to misunderstand that or mishear it or whatever. KG is a prick and this is a prime example of why i dont like him

Wow lot of KG haters in here, calm down...funny thing is that a lot of the people saying what a douche KG is have Kobe sigs who is equally a douche

I know you say alot-meaning not all but kg is way worse than kobe in regards to having that bad attitude.and I'm a rockets fan.no kobe sig here.

there's a reason why most fans out of boston hate his attitude.great player but a poser and punk *****.

You're not really trying to say Kob is NOT a douche. Cause that's not debatable.

As a longtime Laker fan, going back to before Kobe Bryant, I would definitely agree with you. When Kobe first came into the league he was an *******. He'd talk **** to veteran players and stare people down after dunks and all that crap. Even 4,5,6 years into his career he was still like that.

However,

Kobe has matured... you can't possibly argue that. He is still arrogant, but who isn't? Michael was/is, Larry was/is, Magic was/is... You have to have an unbelievable amount of self-confidence in order to be as successful as those guys.

But,

Being arrogant does not mean you go after little guys on the court and start barking at them. It also doesn't mean you take repetitive cheap shots at people. It also doesn't mean you act like a crying 8 year old and start drooling and foaming from the mouth. It also doesn't mean you bang your head onto the pad behind the basket before a game to get "pumped up." We understand you have a heart Kevin, you don't need to pound it after dunking in a blow-out against the Raptors. Garnett has so many childish traits that it would take me hours upon hours to name them all. He has not matured one bit. Of course he is a great player, one of the greatest to ever play, but his actions on the court (and sometimes off of it) are pathetic.

38-26 Record in favor of the Lakers since Bird/Magic era during the regular season
55-41 if you add postseason play into regular season record since Bird/Magic era began


46-30 KG's record versus the Lakers


27-16 Kobe vs KG, regular season games
14-11 Kobe vs KG, playoff games
4-1 Kobe vs KG, playoff series
5-1 Ring count between Kobe and KG



As a bonus, I have 3 pictures for KG that he could post in his locker

Right. Neither team has been fully healthy while matching up in the Finals against the other. That argument should be avoided by both teams. It's 1-1, and lets just leave it at that.

The Lakers have pretty much dominated the NBA since 1979-1980. If you look at post 1979 the Celtics are tied for 3rd with the Spurs for most titles (4), behind the Bulls (6) and the Lakers (10).

I was clashing with a huge Boston guy in one of my classes the other day. He was referring to LA as a one trick pony as a sports city. I had to gently remind him the LA Lakers have won more titles since 1980 than the Celtics, Pats, and RedSox combined. Not bad for a one trick pony :)

I get why people don't like it, because a lot of people don't like KG already. I'm a Laker fan, and not a big KG fan. I respect the game, the skills, the passion and his overall impact on the NBA since his time in the league. Helped redefine the PF position, and in his prime one of the best to ever play the position.

He came to Boston, and helped redefine the Celtics with defense. Immersed himself in that culture, and has been embraced by Boston fans as well as by Celtic greats. Yeah, there's some trash talk there, but KG has always been a talker. It's also a tribute to the greatness of Celtics past, as well was an acknowledgement of the great rivalry the Celtics and Lakers have.

I love it. It's an salute to the fact that Lakers vs. Celtics is something bigger than just the two teams in their current make-up, but a tradition of great basketball. I really don't know why people don't like it. I love it.

I go back to the end of the Russell years, and KG's '08 was better then any year Cowens, Havlicek, or Parish put up. You have some Bird years and McHale's '86 that can stand up - that's it.

Garnett's actions are pathetic on the court? I'd rather have a guy that understands how to bring a team together to win, rather than a guy that waves his teammates out of the way and goes one-on-one while causing his team to lose, and getting criticized by his hall-of-fame coach for it afterward. But hey, that's just me.

LA fans act as if Kobe is everything that makes up the Lakers and that he won 5 rings single-handedly. Most everyone else knows he wouldn't have anywhere close to that number without Shaq, and later on Pau. Imagine, with how great Kobe is, how much better he could be if he had the team first mentality that a guy like Garnett has? Scary thought. Luckily, we'll never have to worry about that.

Ok you brought the rape into this.....just shows that you have the mentality of a child.

Garnet bring a team together?????? hahahahahahahahaha...All Garnet can do is ditch his team to join up with an all-star studded team in Boston to win his ring. Garnet needed two all-stars (not to mention all the veterans they had coming off the bench) to win a ring....Kobe just needed one. Garnet is just like Lebron, he can't lead a team all the way, so he had to join up with others who can't lead a team all the way either.

Either way you look at it, Kobe has five rings and two finals MVP's Garnet has one ring and zero finals MVP's. SUCK ON THAT HATER. :D

I agree bringing up the rape thing is stupid, but hey he has nothing to hate on about Kobe recently so he brings up the past, thats what people do when they have nothing on someone, they bring up their dark past

Garnett did ditch his team but he atleast did stay with his team for a long time and really tried to make it work with them, stayed longer and tried harder then lebron did, not to mention in the stronger western confrence

I have to sort of disagree with you saying he didnt bring that team together because he was a huge part of their championship, him and pierce lead that team right to their ring, but without either of them they certainly would not have won a ring in 08

I'm just trying to show that i am not 100% bias towards Kobe and i do show respect to other players when it is due, just like i said about LeBron; mad respect for both of their games, but no respect what so ever for their attitudes

Agreed, Garnet did stay loyal to the Wolves for a long time. But he is no more a team player than Kobe is by anymeans. Who gives a **** about anyones definition of a team player anyways. Give me a guy that can get the job done and win a ring and I don't care who considers him a team player. BTW I do consider Kobe a team player, if he wasn't then how do you explain the five rings. Its just blatant hating to say otherwise.

I just wanted to show that halfwit Boston fan that by his own logic saying that Kobe needed Gasol and Shaq, one could say the same about any one in NBA history. Garnet needed Allen and Pierce. Duncan needed Parker and Manu. Jordan needed Pippen, Magic needed Kareem and Worthy and so on.

Its just so lame to me how these haters nit pick at anything to attack Kobe. I guess they don't realize how ridiculous they sound.

Ummm dont say all laker fans because some of us arent that blinded, we know kobe had a great supporting cast around him that helped him to 5 championships, but if you are not blinded by hate you could also admit that shaq wouldn't have those first 3 rings without kobe, whos to say he wouldn't have 1??? i dunno but the least you can do is support both sides without just hating on Kobe like the rest of the people that are blinded by hate, pau wouldnt have his 2 rings without kobe and kobe wouldnt have his 4th and 5th without pau WOW THAT WAS SO HARD like come on guys it goes both ways

Oh an also to say Kobe doesnt have a team first mentality is just plain stupid, he would never ever ever ever gotten ring #4 and 5 without a team first mentality, just because he knows he is the #1 option and should be taking the most shots (not too much more than pau though now a days lol)... He is the most dominant player to play the game since Jordan and he knows it, he knows he need to take his team on his back sometimes and clearly he has done so, but also has no problem sharing the rock, i mean giving it up to ron ron for several clutch plays in game 7 shows mad confidence in his teammates
