08:08 AM ET 12.31 | Kevin Garnett re-upped for three more seasons in Boston this past offseason, though he admitted recently he wasn't sure how deep into his career he wanted to play. Now 36 and in his 18th NBA season, Garnett has played in more than 1,400 games, regular season and playoffs combined. And he made clear in an interview with Yahoo! Sports that he won't stick around just to stick around if he feels he can't play at a high level. ... Q: How many more seasons do you see yourself playing? K.G.: "I don't know. I will make a decision every year. I want to make sure I am having fun. I want to make sure I am productive. I got a lot of responsibility on me right now. I'll figure it out. But right now I'm still enjoying myself for the most part."

QUOTE(#1):

The league will miss KG when he finally retires. He plays the game with his heart the way it is supposed to be played rather than for his sponsors like so many young guys.

+1, he is one of my favorite players of all times

QUOTE(#3):

I won't miss him and other players and teams won't miss him. Only the C's and his fans would miss him. He is a dirty player and he has no respect for other great players. If he wants respect than he has to show respect back.
