KG: “All Star Game for me at least is a chance to interact with everybody. For it being my last, I got some family coming down. You know me, I’m all about the rest. I’m all about the family. That’s what I plan on doing.”
Reporter: Will this be your last All-Star Game?”
KG: “This is definitely my last All-Star Game.”
Reporter: “Why do you say that it will be your last All-Star Game?
Reporter: “Because you have two years left on your contract.”
KG: “Ya’ll don’t know what I know.”
There are a lot of different things you can infer from his comments. First and foremost on everyone’s mind: is KG telling us here’s retiring at the end of this season? Possibly. He was visibly exhausted, which made his delivery all the more ominous. He also finished the exchange with a nebulous, “Ya’ll don’t know what I know.” That is very true.
One could also take these comments to mean, ‘I don’t care how the fans vote, I am not spending my one mid-season break next year having Erik Spoelstra run me ragged.” Possibly ending with a B+ Danny Glover from Lethal Weapon impression.
If Kevin Garnett has taught us anything from his tenure as a Celtic, “anything is possible” and “[we] don’t know what [he] knows.”
