The veteran power forward checked in with his final ANTA BLOG of the 2010-11 season this morning. Unsurprisingly a pretty solemn tone from the All-Star, but this entry should put to bed for good any kind of talk that Garnett is/was considering hanging it up after this season. The one positive out of all this is Garnett and company get a lengthy offseason for once to keep their bodies and minds at rest before a final push with the current C’s core.
As you know, we were knocked out of the playoffs by Miami. It’s unfortunate that we are out and in my mind didn’t reach our potential. Taking the last couple of days to think about things and the season was long. Their were ups and downs all season and dealing with teammates, leaving teammates, gaining teammates. Long hours, flights, practices, workouts, etc… Another season under my belt, but not satisfying. I’ll be getting back to the “lab” (workouts and court work) to work on my craft, so I can keep improving. I will be working on my skills and constantly trying to get better.
Quick shout out to my man Shaq, who is the best. He worked hard all season, but couldn’t get his achilles right.
Amazing to think that I was playing with so many potential HOF (hall of famers). I will remember these times, on and off the court. This will be a memorable season!!!
Thank you all so much for your constant support and encouragement throughout the season. Hanging in with us through the ups and downs of the season. Your support gets me through and pushes me to be better. I will be back in China sometime in July or August, so stay tuned. I met so many of you all last summer, that it will be exciting to meet more.
Keep reaching higher and thanks to all my supporters.
