A quick perusal of the Web this morning is quite revealing for what we don't find. No one is talking about KG coming up lame once again after another failed alley-oop attempt. The limp was the most pronounced we've seen since this. Celtics Stuff Live opened their show talking about how the Celtics' defense has suffered from the deterioration in Garnett's defensive abilities. I'm going to go a step further.
If KG's knee doesn't significantly improve between now and May, KG may hang them up after this season and call it a career. I don't know Kevin Garnett personally. But I do know that he sets very high standards for himself, standards he's met or exceeded over the course of his career. It just can't be any fun playing basketball at the level he's playing now, having played in the stratosphere for most of his career.
