There’s been plenty of talk surrounding Kevin Garnett possibly being traded from the Boston Celtics before the deadline, but the chances of that seem unlikely considering the future Hall of Famer has the no-trade clause in his contract and has made it clear he wants to “live and die green.” Even if the Celtics think sending Garnett packing would be in the team’s best interest, the forward has every reason in the world to want to finish his career in Boston.
Look at the type of impact over the last couple of years as Garnett has helped the Celtics return to their dominant level they were always known for as the team has been one of the top contenders in the Eastern Conference since he came on board in 2007. Even at the age of 36, Garnett has continued to prove he’s one of the most difficult forwards to contain in the league and even looks like he could make an impact for a few more years.
Even without Rajon Rondo for the rest of the season, Boston has proven they still have what it takes to be one of the league’s top teams and could easily make a strong run for another trip to the Eastern Conference Finals. Garnett has always been a strong leader throughout his career and for everything he’s done for the organization since 2007, there’s no question he deserves to finish his career in Boston–whether that ends up being after this season or down the road.
