Celtics’ Kevin Garnett Talks Retirement, Legacy, Disappearing

8405742Marc Spears of Yahoo! Sports recently had an interview with Kevin Garnett of the Boston Celtics. They talked about different topics from retirement to the Celtics to his legacy.

Q: How many more seasons do you see yourself playing?

K.G.: “I don’t know. I will make a decision every year. I want to make sure I am having fun. I want to make sure I am productive. I got a lot of responsibility on me right now. I’ll figure it out. But right now I’m still enjoying myself for the most part.”

Garnett is 36 and, sometimes, he’s still playing at a terrifying level defensively. But the Celtics lately haven’t looked like the Celtics that we were used to. We wonder if it could be the end of the line for these guys.

Garnett was asked about what he would do once he retires.

Q: You said several years ago that once you retire you are going to disappear. What did you mean by that?

K.G.: “Go away. Not be around the game. Some players take some jobs involved in the league and do some things. I think I am going to take an alternate road. Who knows what the future holds? I’m going to disappear.”

Whether you like KG or not, he would be really missed once he retires. So an NBA without a chirpy Garnett just wouldn’t be the same.

Q: What type of legacy do you hope to leave?

K.G.: “My mark is just simple. A guy who was able to be versatile in the game, was able to do multiple things, was always a team guy and played his ass off. That’s me. And whoever didn’t know me, didn’t know me. If they heard stories, that’s what it was, a story. That’s what I am.

“I never have been nothing else. I’ve never been an individual guy. I never cared about the accolades. I’ve always been driven by the competition and the learning process.”

And again, whether you like Garnett or not, he really never was a selfish guy. In Minnesota, he was doomed in mediocrity for most of his time there but he never asked for a trade. He was finally rewarded an out when he was traded to Boston in the summer of 2007. Garnett would win a ring with Boston that following season.

This interview with Kevin Garnett is really something you should read. He still has quite a lot of pride in his game and with all the trash-talking you see about him, it just shows he really cares about his team, whether the ship is sinking or not. Would he ever coach? Probably not but we could see that. How long before he retires? Who knows? But the end of the line is near. All I know is that I’m going to miss Garnett when he’s through with the game. He still has that old-school mentality that very few possess in the league. KG is all about the game. That is, until he makes that disappearance once he’s done playing.
