Doc Rivers says Kevin Garnett changed the culture of the Boston Celtics

Boston Celtics to retire Kevin Garnett's No. 5 next season

Boston Celtics to retire Kevin Garnett's No. 5 next season

The announcement occurred during the first timeout in Boston's game against the Clippers, with Garnett's former Boston coach, Doc Rivers, standing on the opposite sideline.

During a stoppage, the Celtics played a Garnett highlight video on the Jumbotron, accompanied by an audio clip from former Celtics coach Doc Rivers, saying, "I've never been around a player like Kevin". It hasn't left since.

The future Hall of Famer was drafted fifth overall by the Minnesota Timberwolves in 1995 and won an National Basketball Association title with the C's in 2008.

"And I've often said about him, he's the greatest superstar role player ever".

On the season overall, the 33-year-old is averaging 19.5 points, 3.1 boards and 5.9 assists in over 30 minutes per game, all while shooting 41.2 percent from the floor, 35 percent from deep and 86.3 percent from the free-throw line. Like, he was a superstar, but he played his role for the team anyway, somehow. "Listen, I don't know what to do, but I know rest you have to do and we'll see".

"He changed the culture of this franchise".

"Yeah I am", Rivers said.

The Lowell, Mass., native was lucky enough to catch games as a teenager from the Garden's top floor, the Halo, where special guests got to watch the games. He's all about winning. "It was off the charts".

George missed one game in early January with a hamstring injury and then another nine after briefly returning. Rivers said the pair reminds him of having Garnett and Ray Allen. "That is very similar". It just makes no sense to me.
