Ask a Boston Celtics fan that watched Kevin Garnett scream "Anything is possible!" after the Celtics beat the Lakers in Game 6 of the 2008 NBA Finals and they will probably tell you it's one of their favorite sports memories.
Ask a Los Angeles Lakers fan about the scream and they will probably tell you it's one of their worst sports memories. In the case of our Podcast host, Neil Punsalan, who is a die-hard Laker fanatic, it's a memory he didn't experience live because he turned the game off before he could witness Paul Pierce, Ray Allen and Kevin Garnett celebrate their first title on the Boston floor as a defeated Kobe Bryant walked off of it.
Ask a Adidas executive from that time and they will probably say, "Did KG know our slogan is 'Impossible Is Nothing' and 'Anything Is Possible' is Li-Ning's slogan?"
On the latest episode of First Ballot: the Hall Of Fame Podcast, Neil is joined by comedian/writer/Celtics Fanatic Josh Gondelman (Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, Desus & Mero) to discuss the greatness and intensity of Kevin Garnett and if his "Anything is Possible" speech is the greatest championship speech ever (videos of a few nominees are below the following Podcast timecodes).
