Should Kevin Garnett Retire?

According to Boston Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge and ESPN, future Hall of Famer Kevin Garnett, 36, is considering retirement, following the team's elimination from the Eastern Conference Finals this postseason. Garnett needs time to think, but time may not be on the side of the Celtics, who have to worry about the draft and free agency coming up.

If the Celtics retain Garnett, that straps them right there at about $21 million, but Ainge told Boston sports radio station WEEI-93.7 FM that he doesn't expect the franchise to let go of any of their free agents. Of course, those free agents can go where they please, but if they want to stay in Boston, the Celtics seem keen on making that happen. Celtics players Jeff Green, Brandon Bass, and one-third of the Big Three Ray Allen are free agents this summer.

Garnett is highly regarded as one of the best NBA big men of all-time. His fierce determination and ability to maximize his athletic gifts helped keep the Minnesota Timberwolves relevant as long as he could, in spite of the franchise's poor decisions. When he was traded to the Boston Celtics, along with Ray Allen, he helped breathe new life to a once-promising franchise. Plus, in the first year of the Big Three experiment -- Kevin Garnett, Ray Allen, Paul Pierce -- they won the NBA Championship. Do you think Kevin Garnett will retire?

    He's not playing like a bum... and I think they can beat any team so he should stick around in the NBA a bit longer.

    He's old and he wore down. He should go out before he embarresses himself.

    Seriously embarrass himself.... Have you seen kg play? He is still an amazing player. He's better than half of the players from that the NBA drafts each year. Kg will not and cannot embarrass himself.

    Age catches up quickly. Look at Willie Mays. If he hasn't blown his money, go out with respect, he will never win another ring.

    He is still great but they need more new blood. The "old guys" can't sustain it for a long run.

    He's still very good. But I think Boston needs to switch things up a bit. Trade Garnett to New York, or LA, Or philly I say.

    He has one more season left in his tank, Rondo gets better next season, and the Celtics came MUCH closer to beating the Heat than OKC did (without the blatantly biased officiating in game 2 the Celtics would have won the series in 5 games)

    If he capable of continue on playing, I think Boston should resign KG for another year.

    As a Celtics fan, I hate the thought of it. He epitomizes the Celtics mentality of old....and he plays pedal to the metal for four full quarters. My hope was that he'd stay and come in off the bench, because he's still a quality player with a sweet shot, but my sense is that he doesn't wish to go out in that role, sadly.
    My kind of player

    Not a Celtics fan {Lost Twice in the Finals to them} but I always liked Kevin.Reminded me of Hakeem from the Rockets. Should go to the Spurs though.
