It took forever and a day for Kevin Garnett to go all-in on the Nets season this year, but he has officially committed to winning with the team — or trying to help achieve that — this year.
Garnett spoke about his decision to return to the Nets this summer and mentioned that retirement was a possibility over the summer.
"“(The thought of retirement) is always somewhere in there, especially when you come up short for your goal for the year. But I must admit these last three years, I’ve thought about life and where basketball is as far as priority,”"
But before Nets fans get too nervous, Garnett wants everyone to know that his thoughts about retirement this offseason doesn’t mean he’s not 100 percent committed to the 2014-15 season.
"“But the decision is either yes or no. It’s not like 50-50 I’m in the middle of the road or gray area. I’m a person that when you commit to something, you commit to it. It’s that simple.”"
Brooklyn lost Paul Pierce to the Nets this offseason and are trying to rebuild themselves without actually having to rebuild in the traditional sense. It’s a hard task but the Nets are better than people are giving them credit for and they could surprise a lot of people this upcoming season.
