As a tribute to Celtics center Kevin Garnett, who said the team is "all grit and balls," The Living Room is now serving a dish of grit(s) and (meat)balls. CBS Boston reports that the dish is composed of smoked turkey grits with cheddar and turkey meatballs with sage, clocking in at $5 as an homage Garnett, who wears No. 5. The dish will be offered from now until the end of the playoffs. But what if everything Kevin Garnett said was turned into food? Without further ado, here's a bunch of Kevin Garnett quotes and the dishes they could inspire.

"I've never had beef with World" - steak and a globe artichoke.
