Found February 16, 2013 on Celtics Life:
Year after year we hear the rumors, some years more active than others. Danny Ainge listens to offers and also explores new to his aging roster. And yet, the Celtics continue to prove their doubters wrong. Every spring the Celtics grow to become a contender and enter the playoffs scaring everyone. This year it will be the same story. The Celtics face the injury of a key member of their team but will end up being a candidate to win it all. And I can tell you something. This team deserves another chance to do so.

More KG at All Star Weekend

Kevin Garnett mentioned that he was bringing his family to All Star Weekend with him and he was going to enjoy it because it was going to be his last.

Why Aren’t Carmelo Anthony and Kevin Garnett Still Feuding?
