Garnett said Tuesday that he was not surprised to see Irving leave the 17-time championship organization because he simply did not have the “cojones.”
Garnett explains what it was like to play for the Celtics.
“Boston’s a tough town, dawg. You have to have some major cojones to be there.
You got to want that. The people want it for you.
That’s why Paul [Pierce] is perfect for it.
Paul wants the shot every time. Like, ‘You’re 0-for-14.’ And he’s like, ‘I know, but they WANT it.'”
