Kevin Garnett: ‘I want to finish my career as a Celtic’
"I want to finish my career as a Celtic,” said Garnett, who joined Boston in a trade with Minnesota before the 2007-08 season. “This is it. I don’t plan on bouncing from team-to-team, that’s not really the plan. Hopefully God willing, I can finish my career out in the classy, elegant with a class-full organization as Boston. I don’t want to downgrade. I want to continue to be where I’m at. This is the first option and hopefully the only option.”
HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: Why would he leave?
Kevin Garnett and the Boston Celtics seem a match made in heaven, and the future member of the Hall of Fame wants to finish his career with the storied green-and-white.
Garnett, who has a year left on his contract at $21 million, claims to have little interest in demeaning his legacy by bouncing from team-to-team, especially since he already won a championship.
Leaving is easier said than done. Garnett’s passion for basketball may keep him in an NBA uniform into his late thirties.
If so, it’s unlikely Garnett retires with the Celtics as GM Danny Ainge won’t prolong rebuilding around Jeff Green and Rajon Rondo.
