superstars shouldn't retire until their late 30's.... he could still be effective coming off the bench in 2 years
Most superstars don't get drafted out of high school and play 2-3 earlier than most college players. At the age of 35 he's going to have the miles of a 40 year old on his body. I'd be surprised if he's playing in 3 years still.
It's all going to come down to his knee. If he can stay healthy, I bet he retires in 2 years. Maybe 3 depending on how this season goes. If he hurts that knee again, he's gone.
I'm just glad he got a ring to compliment all the hard work he put in over the years. As a kid, I wanted to be like KG soooooo much. the dude is a true NBA superstar who has had a dream career. It will be sad to see him go.
When he came to the Celtics, I thought he'd age a lot better than this, but after his subtle decline last season and his injury, I knew he was done as an elite player. He's still a valuable player when he's on the court, but nothing more than a 3rd option at best at this point.
