Andray Blatche and Kevin Garnett have a rocky history, filled with insults and general disrespect.
Blatche and Garnett famously feuded in 2010, but patched things up last season.
“I can say Kevin, he surprised me,” Blatche said. “We were playing one game against each other, I believe it was last year, in Brooklyn. I was playing against him and he said, ‘Hey man, just keep your head up and keep fighting. When he said that, it caught me off-guard, because me and him have our history, and I said, ‘All right, I guess we’re cool now.’
“I took that in, and ever since then I know everything is over with.”
Next season, Blatche will have the opportunity to study under Garnett.
“There are a lot of things off the court I can learn from Kevin Garnett,” said Blatche. “I’m really excited to have the chance to play with him and learn from him from one of the best.”
