In his first year of retirement, Garnett has infiltrated the television world with “Area 21,” a wholly unique take on the athlete-turned-analyst that now appears every Monday night during the playoffs. “A lot of times I’m with friends when I’m watching sports and it turns into like a barbershop atmosphere and there’s a lot of opinions,” Garnett said in a phone interview with The Associated Press. “It’s intense. If you throw in some salsa dip and some chips along with some cigars, it gets really intense. “Obviously, we don’t have the cigars and the salsa and the guac (in the studio), but there’s the same kind of energy in the sense of watching multiple monitors and multiple games and being passionate about an opinion, about what you’re looking at.”
Beloved by teammates but known publicly for his volatile personality, Wallace has appeared with KG four times this season. The two have an easy chemistry, “like an old (expletive) married couple,” Garnett says. “Me and Mossy, we get together, an average conversation always turns into ego and stats and, ‘Man I could’ve guarded you,'” Garnett said. “And it’s fun, so although we’re talking about sports, we’re talking about life, where we come from, family, problems, chicks, parties, greatest times, worst times. It’s real friendship. From those perspectives, the guys that I have on are people I sit back and say if I was a fly on the wall who would I love to hear the conversation?”
After being shown the video by teammate Avery Bradley, Celtics guard Isaiah Thomas decided to play it for the team before tipoff at the United Center. In typical Garnett fashion, the video was high energy and rife with expletives. But for a Boston team in need of a jolt given not only its lackluster play but Thomas’ coping with the tragic death of his sister, the message had the intended effect. “Everybody was kinda pumped up. I almost felt like he was in the locker room with me again,” said Bradley, the only player on Boston’s roster who played alongside Garnett. “It kind of energized us a little bit before the game and it reminded us of what we’re playing for and what the Celtics stand for. … It’s funny because he was our leader when he was here. He’s still part of this Celtics family. For him to go out of his way to send us a message like that, that means a lot to all of us.

BEFORE YOU GO, DID YOU GIVE ANY THOUGHT TO GETTING BACK OUT THERE ON THE COURT, MAYBE PLAYING IN THE BIG3? Kevin Garnett: Before I walked away from the Timberwolves, I was prepared to play a couple years. So when I walked away from that, I hung my shoes up for good and put the glass on it. And I have not had an itch to be out there at all. So, no. Ice Cube’s people called me from the 3-on-3 — 3-on-3 doesn’t do it for me, bruh, I’m sorry.
