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.

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...
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.
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
