As great as Kevin Garnett is, he’s no Bill Russell - and he seems to know it. At halftime of the Celts’ game against the Orlando Magic the other night, the C’s 1961-’62 team was honored on the 50th anniversary of its championship. Not only did KG graciously applaud Russell, but he also bowed to the legendary big man several times. Celebrated along with Russell were teammates Bob Cousy, Tommy Heinsohn, Frank Ramsey, Tom “Satch’’ Sanders, Sam Jones, and Jim Loscutoff.
