Report: Kevin Garnett Won’t Commit To 2014-2015 As His Final Season

Kevin Garnett

The Brooklyn Nets officially met the media for the first of the 2014-2015 season today. Though all players had at least some contact with reporters throughout the offseason, there was one extremely notable exception: Kevin Garnett. The Big Ticket’s future was in limbo for the majority of the summer, a reality owed as much to his silence as Brooklyn’s collective insistence that it was unaware of his plans for 2014-2015.

Nets Coach Lionel Hollins Believes That Kevin Garnett Will Play This Season

Kevin Garnett

Brooklyn Nets big man and future Hall-of-Famer Kevin Garnett is hardly the player he used to be, but that doesn’t mean he’s expendable. The 38 year-old’s playing status has been unknown since the Nets were eliminated from the playoffs in May, and conventional wisdom said the departure of longtime teammate Paul Pierce to the Washington Wizards in free agency increased the chances that Garnett will retire. All recent reports have indicated otherwise despite KG’s silence, however, and yesterday’s sentiment of new Brooklyn coach Lionel Hollins is the latest evidence that supports the idea Garnett will return to play at least one more season.

Paul Pierce Is Interested In Signing With Clippers

Paul Pierce

You never expect it. You never expect to see the day your idols grow old. Old and slow, and stubborn and forgotten. The pull-up jumpers start falling short. The legs start giving out. Paul Pierce isn’t the same player he once was. That player wouldn’t have asked to guard LeBron and then proceed to get lit up for 49 points. But the Truth still has something left, and he says he intends to play for another year or two. Read More »

The Brooklyn Nets Asked For This

Kevin Garnett, LeBron James, Paul Pierce

It didn’t come to them exactly as planned or in the form they would have most preferred, but they got what they angled for and that was a shot at the champs. The Nets were constructed to compete against the Miami Heat, even acquiring noted Heat antagonists Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett to join their cause. The duo was supposed to be the shot in the arm that provided the experience, professionalism, personality and heart anybody with a pulse could see the Nets lacked.

It almost worked, too. Read More »
