 Kevin Garnett missed several games down the stretch to rest a foot that was swollen.  Doc let it slip that he had bone spurs.  He played valiantly in the Celtics first round series against the Knicks.   He averaged 12.7 points and 13.7 rebounds in the post season and played more than 40 minutes in game 6.  There has never been a doubt that KG is tough or that he is a warrior. Jackie MacMullen included this little bit of information in her recent ESPN article.  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." Surgery on both ankles, regardless of whether it is major or minor surgery is a pretty big deal.   KG has said that his decision to return will be tied up with Paul Pierce and whether he returns, but I have a feeling that the surgeries and rehab may figure into it somewhat as well.   KG is a very proud and intense player and I have no doubt that if he has the slightest feeling that he won't be able to play at a high level,  he will choose to retire.  [Discuss on CG Forums!]
