Garnett To Decide Playing Status On Year-To-Year Basis
At 36 years old, Kevin Garnett doesn't have a set date as to when he will retire, but he admits he'll make a decision on a year-to-year basis about whether he wants to keep playing in the NBA.
"I don't know," Garnett said. "I will make a decision every year. I want to make sure I am having fun. I want to make sure I am productive. I got a lot of responsibility on me right now. I'll figure it out. But right now I'm still enjoying myself for the most part."
Once he retires, Garnett's plan remains to disappear from the game.
"Go away," Garnett said. "Not be around the game. Some players take some jobs involved in the league and do some things. I think I am going to take an alternate road. Who knows what the future holds? I'm going to disappear.
"Coaching takes patience. I'm more enthused when teaching players who want it versus when I have to. Commentary is an opinion. I don't think people take the initiative to learn the player that they are speaking on. Everybody has something to say."
