The first round of the NBA playoffs begin this weekend between the Boston Celtics and Chicago Bulls. Kevin Garnett, the Celtics' star player, is featured on the cover and inside the May issue of Men's Fitness. It's a great cover and the sweat—or at least the Photoshop'd spray-on variety—looks so good you could try to lick it off his arms. "No Homo."
WHEN YOU JUMP, more photos and the latest on Garnett and the playoffs.
Garnett talks about being considered "skinny":
"I work very hard at it," he tells the magazine. "You don't survive playing the power forward position and sometimes at center guarding Shaq and Yao Ming being thin. I take my weights very, very, very personally. It's part of my regimen every day…even on game days. I'm not a weak individual."
KG propelled the Celtics to its record 17th NBA title last year but unfortunately there is a "strong possibility" he will miss the entire postseason. Garnett injured his right knee in February. Last night Boston Celtics Coach Doc Rivers said Garnett is "not ready" to start and could miss the entire playoffs.
