Garnett received a warm welcome from the Garden crowd and while he wouldn't say that this is is final season, the thought has crossed his mind. "I'll always have that special relationship with this city," he said. "I had seen Paul [Pierce, now with the Wizards] the other day. He was in town to play the Knicks. At this stage, when you know that things are not taken for granted, but more appreciated. It [retirement] crosses there [the mind]. Wouldn't lie about that." CSNNE.com

You can count Celtics head coach Brad Stevens among those who still sees value in what Garnett brings on the floor as well as serving as a living, breathing example of how the game should be played. "He looks like he has too much energy to retire," Stevens said. "Whether it's talking to our players, talking to our bench, talking to his teammates, the passion which he brings to the game is top-notch. And I think you can learn a lot from a guy like that if you're a young guy that's never been around him." CSNNE.com
