Though the second season of the popular “Winning Time: The Rise of the Lakers Dynasty” series debuts Aug. 6, you will not seeing much of Spencer Haywood.

The Hall of Fame big man was only with Los Angeles for that one season. But Haywood recently sat down with the eponymous host of the “Scoop B Selects” podcast, Brandon “Scoop B’ Robinson, to talk about a range of issues, and Boston Celtics legend Kevin Garnett found his way into the chat.

Asked whether there were players like The Big Ticket back in his day, Haywood replied “Well, I can say some skill wise but there is something more to Kevin Garnett than just skills.”

“He’s got the grit,” added Haywood. “He’s got the dog in him, you know what I mean? That makes you special.”

“Then, he’s a Chicago guy but he was brought up from down south, so sometimes it’s something about us guys who grew up in the South early and then moved to the city when we were in our teenage years.”

“We have an edge and a chip, we have the best of both worlds,” said Haywood.
