Rivers: Every year is going to be year-to-year with Garnett

Kevin Garnett raised a lot of eyebrows after Wednesday's win over the Bulls, declaring that the upcoming All-Star Game would be his last.

"This is definitely my last All-Star game," Garnett proclaimed that night. "Y'all don't know what I know. Put it like this, I'm more than grateful for going (to the All-Star game). I'm not gonna act like I got more All-Star games in me or whatever. So I'm actually going to enjoy this one with some friends and family."

But Garnett just signed a three-year deal with the Celtics, and still has two more left on his contract. That said, KG is up there in age, and has made more money in the NBA than any other athlete in the history of the game -- so money isn't an issue.

Doc Rivers was asked about Garnett's comments Friday on WEEI, and like us, he doesn't exactly know what's going through Garnett's head in that regard.

"Basically that - we don't know what he knows," Rivers said. "With Kevin, Kevin I think every year is going to be year-to-year, and I really believe that. I think he loves the game too much and is playing too well to walk away. But I think during the season, he's like a lot of coaches at times who think about it. If you ask them during the middle of the season are they coming back, they would probably say, 'I doubt it,' because it's such a grind, and especially for him. But I wouldn't put too much into that."

Garnett is averaging 15.1 points and 7.7 rebounds this season for the 28-24 Celtics. His name has come up in trade rumors, but he's stated multiple times that he's a "Celtic". He also holds power over all trade with a no-trade clause.
