The Celtics would have beat the Magic if they had KG.
Easy.
He is a good team player.

Con

You obviously have the BoP, so go ahead.
Debate Round No. 1

Pro

The Celtics were the Champs, correct?
Untill the Lakers this year.
KG has great stats and can easily hold 2 people from scoring.

He has the height advantage to stop points in which this is how we lost to the Magic, we couldn't stop them from scoring.

Enough said.

Con

The resolution states: The Boston Celtics would have at least beat the Orlando Magic if they had Kevin Garnett

However, the Celtics did in fact have (present tense of had) Kevin Garnett. Since the Celtics did have Kevin Garnett, the resolution is negated. See my source on how the Celtics 'had' Kevin Garnett.

Why does it matter if he presents new arguments? PLUS, he pretty much had to.

That said, I'm absolutely giving this one to Hunton711, except for Spelling and Grammar.

Hunton711 made his point. Nags made one semantical argument which was incredibly weak.

New argument presented by the Contender in Round 2. That lost arguments and conduct.

All else tied.

I was thinking of taking this one, but I dunno, the whole "my opponent has the onus to provide evidence" stuff gets old.
