NBA legend Kevin Garnett was a guest at Bill Simmons’ “The Ringer” podcast. Among other things, KG talked about the time he was with the Boston Celtics.

According to Garnett, the Celtics were the reason why LeBron left Cleveland for Miami at the end of the 2009-2010 season.

That season Boston knocked out the Cavs in six games in the Eastern Conference semi-finals. Garnett said that the Celtics were confident they can defeat LeBron, who couldn’t alone beat all five of them.

“We didn’t give a f*ck about LeBron. We didn’t fear LeBron and we didn’t think he can beat all five of us.”
