From the Tatum Cadmus Blog, Chris Rock on the Garnett trade:
"It’s like Dick Cheney and Halliburton,” Rock said. “It makes no sense (for the T’Wolves)…I almost expect to see Kevin McHale announced as the new coach of the Celtics.”

John Lucas on Eddie Griffin:
"He’d give you the shirt off his back," said John Lucas, the former NBA player and coach who has turned to counseling troubled athletes. "I had two friends put out of their house. Ed took them in. They slept on his sofa. He put blankets on them. A lot of ways, he was selfless to a fault."
From Shira Springer/The Boston Globe:
"When he gets back onto the court for a drill, the intensity level goes up about five notches," said former Timberwolves coach Dwane Casey of Garnett. "If a guy’s slacking off, he’ll tell a guy, but he leads by example. He’ll embarrass guys. He’s always the first one to dive on the floor.
"He can’t stand young guys not giving their all and working as hard as he does. If a guy matches his intensity in practice, he’ll love that."
Ben Bolch/LA Times on O.J. Mayo:
