While reading my daily news, I happened across an interview with Kevin Garnett that, while being a few years old, is amazing. It’s refreshing. It’s real. It really is, simply amazing. You see, during the interview, former Georgetown coach John Thompson asks Garnett about several things including the firing of his former coach, how physically beat up he is right now and other usual interview-like questions. But, like KG can only be, spouts the real truth.
Even if you’re not a sports fan, or have any knowledge of Garnett’s career, or the NBA for that matter, this is fantastic. It might be nine minutes long, but I think you’ll enjoy taking the time to watch it. KG boils it down to how he hates losing. He’s putting the team on his back and feels the pain when they lose. To him, it’s not about the money or the fame, it’s about playing ball – because that’s how he’s built.
Think about that for a second. He was “built that way.” When was the last time you thought you were born to do something? Now, the tougher question, are you doing it? Are we all built that way? Sure we could take the easy way out, flock to the money, gobble up the fame (if it’s present)... but when it’s all gone, was it worth it?
KG was built that way. How are you built?
Thanks to Bryan Chiao, over at Rm116, who posted the clip I’m talking about. Great find.
