“The funny thing about KG is that there’s really no story, because there’s a 24/7 continuous loop. You couldn’t even break it up into stories. You’ll be on the team plane at three or four in the morning, you’ll hear this noise nonstop — it’s someone talking at the top of his voice — and it’s KG. From the moment you take off to the moment you land, whatever hour of the day, he’s talking to rookies, he’s telling stories. He’s just nonstop. there’s some sort of nuclear reactor inside him that never quits.”

—Celtics owner and CEO Wyc Grousbeck, who appeared on CNBC’s Squawk Box and talked the business of basketball, and of course the Celtics. WEEI has he transcript (hat tip to CelticsBlog).

So, basically Kevin Garnett is like Iron Man, just without the sweet suit.
