We've known for a couple of season now that this season has had an arrow on it for KG's possible last season. The way he's playing right now, he could play another two seasons or so, but his passion, and effort seem like he's ready for the end. What a story that would be. Garnett walking away as a champion. Garnett came into Boston in 2007 as the savior. So far he's been the best Celtic in the 2012 playoffs. Kevin is putting up 18 points, and 10 boards so far in the playoffs. Garnett is also playing close to 38 minutes per game, and he's able to sustain the same force.
It’s sad how things, Especially good things come to an end. But they must. In the meantime, with all of the injuries KG's teammates have been dealing with. KG knows all so well how injuries can set you back, or take you out completely. Last season Dirk put the Mavs on his back to carry the Mavs to the championship. Dirk did have a little help from his friends, and KG will need that as well. But Garnett knows that Pierce is hurting,and that Allen could be gone in a second. So Garnett it taking this team over. He wanted the ball last night, and he won the game for the Celtics. For the Celtics to beat both the 76ers,and the Heat assuming they beat the Pacers. It will take Garnett being the man, and he'll need Rondo to help.
Some people may fear life, or fear death,and maybe fear happiness, and everything in between. But KG fears losing because he doesn't want to lose. KG has been very sincere. Committed, true and plain, but he believes in his agenda. Requisites won't be down the drain.
