It's Been Hell for KG

The power forward will turn 34 in May, and even teammates wonder how long he can continue doing the heavy lifting for a team that's also had its share of injuries. KG as in, this is KillinG him. "I don't have to watch him, I see him every day," said teammate Paul Pierce over All-Star weekend. "I'm aware it's definitely hell for him."

Seems like old times, huh?

Celtics.

Lakers.

And our old friend Mr. Heisler weighing in. . .

Garnett got old fast, with injuries and wear and tear robbing him of his once-breathtaking athletic ability. Those double-double stat lines he was good for every night have deteriorated into the kind of nine-point, nine-rebound efforts he produced Tuesday in a win at Sacramento.

Allen and Pierce clearly aren't the dashing players they once were, and the additions of Rasheed Wallace, Marquis Daniels and Sheldon Williams last summer did not provide the sort of supporting cast Ainge was hoping for.

As usual, Heisler goes to far.

Let's ser how the season ends before we write an obituary.

Via da hub:

In 2009, Robinson attempted 4.1 shots per game at the rim, according to Hoopdata.com. Only 13 point guards and 11 shooting guards got to the rim more often, and 23 of those 24 players logged more minutes per game than Robinson. (Nate played 29.9 minutes per game last year).

To put that in perspective: Chris Paul attempted 4.4 shots per game at the rim in 38.5 minutes, Kobe Bryant attempted 4.4 in 36.2 minutes, Rajon Rondo 5.2 in 33.0 minutes and Vince Carter 4.1 in 36.8 minutes. (All numbers via Hoopdata.com)
