KG turning back the hands of time too!

Kevin Garnett has turned back the hands of time since 
moving to center a few months back.

Okay Eye On Sports hoops fanatics, I know we just finished talking about the rejuvenation of Boston Celtics’ future Hall of Fsmer Paul Pierce, but what kind of guy would I be to leave out Boston’s even bigger rejuvenation, that of power forward-turned center Kevin Garnett?

KG, ‘The Big Ticket’ or whatever you prefer to call him, has truly turned into a revelation for the C’s and their rabid fans.

Garnett has been transformed from an aging power forward that could barely keep up with today’s younger counterparts, into a suddenly, fleet-footed, sweet-shooting center that has the advantage over almost every 5 in the league not named Andrew Bynum or Dwight Howard.

KG is averaging an impressive 17.0 points and 10.5 rebounds per game in the postseason while playing at least 40 minutes in each of the last three games.

Clearly, Garnett has turned up the level of his play after averaging 15.8 points and 8.2 rebounds per game during the regular season – and now, Boston looks like it has as good a chance of winning the Eastern Conference as any team – even the Miami Heat!
