Like I said above: I dearly hope that with the other two scoring options (Pierce, Allen) on board, KG will play fewer minutes than with the Wolves, especially early in the season. The Celts, who are expecting to go at least to the Conference Finals if not to the really big stage, would be braindead if they put KG on the field 40 minutes per night. But with more rest, he will have less opportunity to grab boards.
I agree...even if KG can put up bigger numbers per minute, I'd home he'll be able to take more breaks with the Celtics to help keep him fresh for the playoffs. As much as I hate SA, Craterface knows what he's doing and rests his starters more during the season. It may mean the Spurs don't win as many games but they'll be fresh for when it matters. Its been a few years since Tim Duncan put up great numbers in the regular season, but is there anyone more unstoppable during the playoffs??
