The Denver Post is reporting that the Denver Nuggets have expressed interest in Kevin Garnett.  Unfortunately for the Nuggets, this feeling is a one way street:Through his representatives, Garnett has let it be known he has no current interest in the Nuggets.No surprise there, as the article goes on to call Denver a “fly-over city” and not a desirable destination for most NBA talent.But, here in fantasy-land, lets play out this potential scenario.  Who would the Celtics be asking for in return?  George Karl seems to have fallen out of love with Kenneth Faried, as ‘The Manimal’ has been sitting out in crunch time in favor of two point-guard set featuring Andre Miller and Ty Lawson.  Denver does have to young talent the Celtics are looking for: Lawson, Faried, Gallinari, Chandler, and McGee (ok maybe a stretch).  They also have a plethora of true centers in Koufos, McGee, and Mozgov.  It is unclear as to what combination of any of these players would interest Boston, but there Denver is deep and has players to spare.While fantasy-land is fun, KG would not do this deal, and I would not want him to do this deal.  He has been fiercely loyal and committed to his teammates and team in Boston.  The Big Ticket recently said: “”I bleed green, I die green, that’s what it is,” and his refusal to go to a B/B+ team only supports that claim.  As over-stated as it is, its still hugely refreshing to see someone so loyal to his team as Mr. Garnett.
