He mentioned that he wants to "enjoy" this season several times. Struck me as something someone like Garnett wouldn't typically say.
The way Kevin Garnett talked in that press conference, he sounded like someone preparing for a final season, whether he'll admit it or not.
Kevin Garnett said an early challenge has been learning to pronounce the new guys' names. "If not, give them nicknames right off the bat."
Kevin Garnett won't say for sure if this is his last season.

Lionel Hollins acknowledged he has a weird sense of humor.
It's going to be a different vibe in press conferences with Hollins this year, I think.
Lionel Hollins said like nine interesting or funny things this morning, shattering the previous coach's 2013-2014 season total.
Lionel Hollins, when asked about Deron Williams having a reputation as a coach killer: "Well, I have a rep as a player killer."
Hollins on perceived weakness of East vs. West: "It's like people looking in the mirror. Not everyone's as beautiful as they think they are"
"There's people that aren't as beautiful as they think they are," Lionel Hollins said.
Hollins says he has "high expectations from the start" for Deron Williams, says he's looked great so far in workouts.
Hollins also says he's challenged Brook Lopez to be a better rebounder than in the past, says they've had many discussions about it already.
Hollins repeats something he said back in July: his first thing to change about the Nets is to make them tougher than they previously were.
Hollins says there will be isolation and post-ups, but wants the offense to be a motion one involving a lot of touches on every possession.
Lionel Hollins says Joe Johnson will be a nominal SF. Hints other starting spot will come down to either Alan Anderson or Bojan Bogdanovic.
About to get in the car and make my first drive to the practice facility of the season. Ready or not, the NBA is back.
Dad: Jeter's performance last night makes you remember why you liked him as a kid. True.
Looking forward to seeing improved islanders team at Barclays center tonight .
Brooklyn nets season starts today with media day. Opening night will soon be here.
Just saw Giants highlights, and it's safe to say that Larry Donnell looks like the JPP of tight ends right now
If you replace every time Jerry Reese said Adrien Robinson with Larry Donnell the GM actually sounds like he knows what he's talking about
Jeter told Verducci he'd play in some capacity in Boston but probably not at short
Think I'm just gonna ask Hollins and Garnett about Jeter tomorrow and then leave
Steiner Sports is not happy about that uniform getting drenched with Gatorade.
Jeter is showing his human side. It took 20 years.
This celebration could probably last until morning. No reason for Jeter to leave the field.
Should've walked him Buck
Storybook that's it he's done
Walk Jeter right? Set up the force?
Would you throw Jeter a pipe shot here? Yes or no?
Wut Jeter due up third...
Starting to think Jeter shouldn't play in Boston. This sendoff whatever it is is the way it should end.
This is it. Three more outs.
The most clutch fielder's choice in baseball history
Drama time in the Bronx...
Wonder if Jeter and Harvey are going to 1OAK tonight. Could be good times.
The things Gerald Williams has done to get inside Jeter's inner circle.
