All these years later, Kevin Garnett still pumping up the Celtics and motivating the team in the playoffs.

Ahead of the Celtics' Game 3 win over the Bulls, former Boston great Kevin Garnett sent the team a video message. Many players said afterwards the message inspired them, and really meant a lot.

Speaking Monday night on TNT, Garnett wouldn't say specifically what was on the video, but said it was meant for Isaiah Thomas. The Celtics star's sister, Chyna, was killed in a car accident April 15.

"I'm going to be honest, man, we can all attest to this: I feel a special place in my heart when it comes to the Celtics, just like I do with the Timberwolves. Whenever those guys lean on me for any type of advice — this was separate to that. I let all the powers that be know that when it comes to players, I'm a player first, and that's where my badge is.

I'll be honest, I'll keep it private because it was for I.T. I just reminded them that they're Celtics and remember why you're playing, and your sister is an inspiration and play for her. He took it, and put it on the boombox and it was what it was. We all are C's and that's what it is."
Jae Crowder spoke after Game 3 about the impact the video had on the team: "To me, personally, it was everything. It was just a little motivational speech. He said we looked like a team that wasn't having fun. We looked like a team that wasn't soaking the moment. We've just got to play for one another and play for the moment at hand, which is the playoffs, and have fun with it. Basically that's all he was saying, with a little more KG into it."

MY NOTE: "with a little more KG into it". Translation: tons of F-bombs.
