From ESPN Boston's Jackie MacMullan:
[Doc] Rivers became emotional when discussing Garnett and the pain he endured while fighting off injuries to his ankles, his hip (a "minor" injury that was aggravated in Game 4) and at least one other undisclosed ailment."
Team sources said KG might undergo offseason surgery to shave down the bone spurs in his ankles, an operation that is not viewed as a major procedure. Two of his teammates privately speculated he is considering retirement.
"I have no clue," Doc admitted. "I was positive last year [he was coming back]. I'm not as sure this year."

In his 18th season in the NBA, Kevin Garnett is still an incredibly valuable player.
You can see some of that value in his stats (14.8 points and 7.8 rebounds per game in just 29.7 minutes), you can see it on the scoreboard (the Celtics were 6 points better per 100 possessions this season with KG on the court, compared to when he sat), and you can see it in the MVP voting.
In Game 1 of this series Kevin Garnett scored 8 points and grabbed 9 rebounds. In Game 2 he posted 12 and 11, Game Three 12 and 17, Game Four 13 and 17, and in Game 5 he had 16 points and 18 boards. At this pace should we expect a 20/20 game from him tonight?

Instead Kevin Garnett and co. will be...
Kevin Garnett stayed true to his competitive form to the very end. After the Boston Celtics lost to the New York Knicks 88-80 in a series-ending Game 6 at TD Garden on Friday, Garnett walked off the court without appearing to shake hands with his opponents. Teammates Paul Pierce and Jason Terry were right in front of him as they walked off the court and into the locker room.
Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big storyline. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump.
Two weeks shy of his 37th birthday, Kevin Garnett finds himself in the midst of maybe the most impressive rebounding stretch of his entire 18-year NBA career.

With the Celtics having been unceremoniously booted from the first round of the NBA playoffs, there are major questions whether the team’s two longtime stars, Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce, will return to lead Boston for at least one more year.
Both Garnett and Pierce are under contract next season — and Garnett one more beyond that — but the Celtics also hold a $5 million...
8 a.m. ET: History is just 96 minutes away.
No team in NBA history has ever come back from a 3-0 deficit to win a best-of-seven series, but this series suddenly has a different tenor. The Celtics seized the momentum from the Knicks, who won the first three games, by winning Games 4 and 5 behind strong performances by Kevin Garnett and Jason Terry. Now the Knicks seem worried, and...
If you look up the definition of "intensity" in the dictionary, aside from the definition itself, you might find a photo of Boston's Kevin Garnett next to it.
Throughout his entire NBA career, KG has exuded emotion, intensity, and often times too much intensity on the court. Some people like it while some think it is just too over the top and he needs to bring it...
The New York Knicks sent the Boston Celtics packing in Game 6.

Following the elimination of our Boston Celtics last Friday you may have found your TL in twitter filled with articles of the main reporters out there citing the likeliness of the end of the Garnett era in Boston. That, coupled with the logical sadness after falling to the Knicks may have colored your basketball dreams in black gloom.
First, and before entering into an analysis...

Poor Carmelo Anthony.
He's taken so much abuse this season.
First Kevin Garnett told him his wife tastes like Honey Nut Cheerios. Or maybe he didn't.
Anyway, then Jordan Crawford most certainly said something else not so nice about Melo's wife.
Now, on top of all that. Melo's arm hurts.
"He yanked my arm out," Anthony said of Garnett. "It...
Back in January, Boston Celtics forward Kevin Garnett made the term “Honey Nut Cheerios” into a whole new thing after he spent some time trash-talking Carmelo Anthony about his wife, La La Vazquez.
Flash-forward to today, Celtics fans decided to serenade Carmelo with those exact words as he made his way to the Knicks bench area during game six of their first-round playoff series...
With the Celtics season ending tonight the immediate focus becomes the future of the next two Celtics to get their numbers retired, Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce. KG seems to imply that his future could very well depend on whether or not Danny retains Pierce.
