This fits well into the ‘competitive at all costs’ character mold Garnett has so gracefully been placed in.When the Celtics signed Kevin Garnett to a new three-year deal, Danny Ainge and company were attempting to reload the talents from previous years; but it was also in a more subtle sense the move was an investment in the future. The current contract for The Big Ticket means he will end his basketball career in Boston as the contract runs until KG is 40.
