Kevin Garnett says this will be his last All-Star Game

Feb 14, 2013, 10:19 AM EDT

This weekend will be Kevin Garnett’s 15th All-Star Game. He has been part of every one since 1997 and this year he was voted in by the fans as an All-Star starter.

And he says it will be his last one.

The video is above but here is the money quote, via A. Sherrod Blakely of CSNNE.com.

“This is definitely my last All-Star game,” Garnett proclaimed. “Y’all don’t know what I know. Put it like this, I’m more than grateful for going (to the All-Star game). I’m not gonna act like I got more All-Star games in me or whatever. So I’m actually going to enjoy this one with some friends and family.”

Garnett realized this implied he could retire after this season and he backtracked from that (he has two years left on his contract). It sounds like after 15 of these he would just like to take a weekend off, sit at home, rest, and watch the entire first season of Homeland in a day. I can understand that.

That’s also not the way it works. If he plays in the league next year and fans vote him in the league will require him to play — miss the All-Star Game and you have to sit out one game (at least) injured on either side of that exhibition.

We’ll see how it plays out. But KG wants this to be it.

    Let the Ray Lewis-like tear fest begin

      Nah, KG doesn’t need to cry and loudly quote the bible every time a cameras on him to distract people from his involvement in a double murder.

        No, he just needs to head-butt a wall and drop a F bomb…”ANYTHHINGG IS POSSIBLE!!”

        True, KG is a harmless scumbag who talks tough and puffs his chest…. douchey but certainly not murderous or a blight on society like Mr. Lewis.

        If the fact that he was never charged with the crime and that the people who were charged with whom he was associated were found innocent doesn’t distract people from it, I think him quoting bible verses is unlikely to do so.

    Last year should have been his last all-star game.

    Voted in by the the average NBA fan, aka the most clueless fans of all the sports. KG shouldn’t even be a 2nd team All Star this year, yet there he is starting.

    Yeah, because he wouldn’t want to run into ‘Melo any more times than he already has to

    • chilomane - Feb 14, 2013 at 2:36 PM

      Melo is a hoe

    How can the biggest d-bag in the league be voted in as a fan favorite? I don’t get it.
