It's like he finally has become a low post center after all these years fighting it and has had a rebirth as a superstar. Why would he walk away at the age of 36?

He will get HUGE offers and it will be up to Danny to decide whether to invest in multiple years for KG at the risk of punting our cap space.

NBA gets it's wish, Heat advance to NBA Finals

Boston Celtics: The End of the Pierce, Garnett, Allen Era

I was born in Massachusetts towards the end of the Larry Bird era. Never saw him play live. Only stepped inside of the old Boston Garden one time and it was to see Disney on Ice. There wasn't much of a reason for me to be a Boston Celtics fan. My dad was, so I was. The team didn't give me much of reason. The deterioration of Bird, Kevin McHale and Robert Parrish...
