When Brooklyn Nets power forward Kevin Garnett isn’t requesting to hear more from the fans, he’s apparently blacking out.
That’s what Garnett said happened during the Nets’ Game 3 victory over the Toronto Raptors.
According to KG, late in the second quarter during a Nets run, Garnett began pounding the floor and tugging on his jersey, urging on the crowd – but apparently he doesn’t recall doing it? Why not? He said it all went black for him.
“I blacked out at that point,” he said. “I have a kid at the games. Being an example, a role model, all that goes out the door. I’m playing on heart at that point, my passion. I’m playing off the crowd — my friends are there, my teammates, J-[Kidd]. I’m just going. I have no idea what I’m doing. I’m going.”
Garnett is quite the intense guy when on the court – some may say too intense – but given what we know about KG, this does seem to fit his mold. A bit odd, but that’s Garnett for you.
