Could this be KG's Final Run?

Last run?

Sports Illustrated's Chris Mannix hears that this could be it for KG after this last playoff run.

Kevin Garnett feeds off doubters, carries Celtics to series-clinching win over Hawks - Chris Mannix - SI.com

No one is completely sure what Kevin Garnett will do next season, when he will become a free agent for the first time in his career. There are those close to him that believe he will retire, that the prospect of another 82 games on his achy right knee will force him out. It takes a lot of work to get Garnett's surgically repaired knee game ready, sources say, and some friends think that after 17 seasons and more than $290 million in career earnings, KG will call it quits

After an all-time great playoff performance in Celtic history last night, the prospect of Garnett retiring doesn't seem to make sense. When you reason with the amount of miles and wear and tear he has put on his body throughout this 17-year illustrious career while turning 36 this Saturday, it certainly does. Wouldn't it be great for him to go out on top here in Boston?

A winner in every sense of the word, KG has truly become the ideal Boston athlete. In a town where athletes are scrutinized for their every move, KG should be put on a podium for "How to be an athlete in Boston." Somebody who puts the front of his jersey far ahead of the words on his back, somebody who plays harder than anyone else on the court, and somebody who is absolutely obessessed with the prospect of winning while relating well to the media and fans, KG truly should be this town's darling. How can you not love this guy?

These past five years have flown by, but every time this man has stepped on the court, it truly has been a sight to watch. Let's hope that he'll have a couple more performances like last night and lead this team to Banner-18. With the injury problems this team is facing, KG may have to be THE man in order for this to happen. What a career he has had and what an amazing person he is for this sports-obsessed city. Celtic fans, and Boston sports fans in general, please appreciate what KG has done these past five years here in town and realize that this may be your last chance to witness a living legend.
