KG already settling in, in his new home-town. He threw the first pitch out in the Red Sox game last night. To think, could’ve been the Dodgers game, sigh…

MLB.com: Is Boston big enough for Big Papi and the Big Ticket?

Early returns say yes, this sports-mad town can support a pair of good-natured, charismatic superstars. When David Ortiz and new Boston Celtic Kevin Garnett embraced in front of the Fenway Park mound, years after Ortiz left Garnett in Minnesota and seconds after Garnett delivered the ceremonial first pitch of Wednesday’s game against the Orioles, they wore two of sports’ most megawatt smiles.

No city lights shorted out — at 7 p.m. ET, they weren’t yet on — but the Fenway Park crowd was buzzing when Garnett, wearing a No. 5 Red Sox jersey, loped to the mound, turning and waving to all corners of the stadium. Then Ortiz, crouching behind the plate, caught Garnett’s offering, a low fastball in the dirt. The crowd roared.

    Hey everybody,

    No need to dwell on this anymore. I’m a Bostonian and let me tell you that even KG and Ray Allen won’t get the Celtics a championship. He’ going to waste his last good years in Boston. I saw KG on his way to the press conference on the day he was signed and I can tell you…all of this attention won’t last very long. I stll wouldn’t buy Celtics tickets.

    Celtics suck even with KG!!!!!
