“Preference-wise, I don’t like it, to be honest with you," said Garnett. "I’m a 4. I don’t like, you know -- it's what it is. I’ll be whatever this team needs me to be. Other than a cheerleader with pom-poms and some short-shorts. Other than that, whatever this team needs me to be, man, I’ll be it.
"I have a lot of confidence in myself when it comes to playing basketball, and positions are just numbers to me. But if it comes to preference, I enjoy the 4. There’s a lot more versatility in the 4. The 5 you’re kind of stuck in mud and cement and you know things are written -- there's not a lot of variation in the 5 position. But this is what it is, and I’m enjoying it and I’m adapting and doing whatever I can to give my team an edge."
Garnett may not enjoy it, but you can't argue with the results. In the last four games that KG has started at center he's averaging 21.5 points, 10.25 rebounds, 1 blocked shot and 1.25 steals.
With Jermaine O'Neal expected to be sidelined for awhile, it seems like KG is going to have to keep on playing at the 5 spot. Unless of course, Danny Ainge makes a move to add some more size to the Celtics.
What do you think of the Celtics starting Bass from here on out and keeping KG as a center? Comment below.
