Celtics forward Kevin Garnett spoke with Dennis & Callahan at Celtics media day in an interview that aired Wednesday morning's show. Garnett spoke of the depressed mood he was in following the Celtics' NBA finals Game 7 loss to the Lakers.
Said Garnett: "Very dark, to be honest, dark. 'Just leave me alone, let me be my myself. I don't want to deal with anything right now. Let me just be in a dark place.' Just the way I replay the game over and over in my mind, trying to get a resolution to some type of place to where you can settle with it. I never found it, but that's what it is. I say it's fuel to the fire."
Garnett said his passion for the game has not waned as he heads into the final years of his NBA career. "I feel older in the fact that I've played for multiple years," he said. "But when it comes to competing, being in shape, passion, none of those things are lacking, not...

Anthony spent last week hanging around with new Knick Amar'e Stoudemire. Then, at Nuggets media day earlier this week, Anthony insisted he never asked for a trade.

According to a Boston Globe report, true freshman Chase Rettig will be the starting quarterback Saturday night when Boston College takes on Notre Dame. Coach Frank Spaziani had said following Saturday's shutout loss to Virginia Tech that Rettig and Mike Marscovetra would battle for the right to replace Dave Shinskie.
