Crunch Time

Its remarkable that Kevin Garnett has won the 2002-03 Crunch Time Award coming off the heals of being criticized last year for not stepping up when the game is on the line and elevating his game. This season he has also won Western Conference player of the month titles for February and April, brought home All-Start Game MVP honors, delivered home court advantage in the playoffs to his team, and racked up career bests in points per game (23), rebounds per game (13.4), assists per game (6), FG% (.502), double-doubles (68), and triple-doubles (6). What does all this equal? League MVP for 2002-03. Bring on the hardware. After all is said and done however, KG will have one important thing to do to prove he is Mr. Crunch Time, win in the playoffs.
