Deep down, Doc Rivers and Kevin Garnett understood this was goodbye.
Deep down, they know it is over.
“I love you,” Rivers told Garnett.
“I love you,” Garnett told Rivers.
Garnett had gone out the way that he had come into these Boston Celtics: Full of bravado, brilliance and pride. Always, pride. They had made the wildest of comebacks in this best-of-seven series with the New York Knicks, punctuated with the most stunning fourth quarter run in franchise playoff history, 20 consecutive points and the earth moving beneath them in the final moments of Game 6, the end of an era.
“He’s as tough of a guy, a competitor, I’ve ever been around,” Rivers said. “I just didn’t want him to go out that way.”
