I came here one time and I joked with Pierce, Then that ‘notorious’ Danny Ainge saw me and it changed history. Let’s call Danny Ainge by name. I’ll mention Minnesota too. Minnesota shaped me when I came to Boston Know what to do. When I’m here, I need to know that I’m in line with the management, the coaches.

Me, Paul, Ray, we always motivate each other, and in practice we They’re all watching each other, and I’ll watch how Ray trains his shots, and I’ll learn how Paul practices one-on-ones. I’ve learned a lot from everyone.”

Scalbrane: “Talk about your playoff games.”

Garnett: “I’ve played in the playoffs before, but I’ve had my first championship race since I came here. I was very confident in the team at the time. I think the only thing that can stop us is the injury, if we Without injury, we were able to win a few more championships. That playoff game is such a precious memory. My child Capri was born that year. I will never forget it.”

Scalbrane: “I was a teammate with KG for three years, and in my mind KG never shirks the blame. There was only one exception. I remember one time we played against the Spurs and Matt Bonner played very well. Okay, Pierce called out at halftime, who’s guarding Bonner? KG called, I’m guarding, but do you know why he’s always open? Because I’ve been going to help you cover Ginobili!”

I want to thank the board of directors. , I want to thank Danny Ainge for his vision, Coach Rivers for his guidance, every teammate who was here today. Thank you every player who is playing for the Celtics right now, and I wish you all the best in the playoffs Luck, hope you fight together and win together. Finally, I want to thank every fan. I love you, Boston.”
