They will for sure regret this. It's not that he hasn't earned it but it's because he won't be worth it by the end of the deal. This is the problem with being loyal. It's nice that they did this but I don't think that it'll work out in the end.

Yeah. I would regret bringing the anchor to my defense and the soul of my team back as well. Great point.

Holy****, you gotta be kidding. 11.3 p.a. for three more years. The Cletics just said **** the new cap rules and now every veteran will ask for ridiculous money.

what would 11.3 per year equal in the old CBA? i'm guessing $15 mill?

Tim Duncan will be getting a similar deal. Not worth it but more of a career achievement contract.

I love KG, hell I named my account after him, but I wouldn't do this deal if I was him, nor would I do it if I was Boston.

For KG he's going to suffer a lot physically over these three years, and he doesn't need the money anyway.

For Boston they're not really title contenders anymore, with or without KG, and this makes it harder to rebuild.

It's a lose-lose in my opinion.

Wow, thats a lot. Garnett has made almost 300 million during his career, why not give some money up so the team could get better?

Wow 11.3 million a year for A guy who will be months away from 40 at the end of his contract. Way to go Boston. He played good in the playoffs but he said it himself how much it physically hurts to play...

celtics were a game away from the finals.....they're contenders. if allen stays you can't just dismiss them as done. they're all a year older but they also just got 2 young big guys to help shoulder the load

KG still looks really good....strong, surprising lean for an old man. there have been guys that have played at a high level into their late 30's, garnett could definitely be one of them
