Sunday night blew expectations out of the water in terms of how special it was having Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett return to the Garden. It was Pierce's night in many ways, but KG was more than appreciative of the organization, the fans and the city when it came time for him to speak post game:

Much love for The Big Ticket. He was showered by the fans during the game, and KG gave it all right back afterwards. This is who Garnett has always been; he knew the exact right thing to say to pump up the fans while playing in Boston, and he knows the exact right thing to say to pump up the fans while playing against Boston. That's tough to do, Garnett being one of the few that can pull it off.

Garnett was loyal till the end in Boston. It can even be argued his loyalty runs so deep that he accepted the trade to go to Brooklyn to help the Celtics get their rebuild underway. But there's no need to argue when it comes to KG's love for Boston, that love is still very much alive, and maybe as strong as ever.
