BOSTON (AP) - Boston Celtics center Kevin Garnett says this weekend "is definitely my last All-Star game."
Garnett would not elaborate on why he wouldn't be back after playing in the midseason exhibition for the 15th time in his 18-year career. Garnett says he's bringing along friends and family so he can enjoy this weekend's game in Houston.
Is it possible that Garnett, 36, is planning to retire?
He wouldn't say.
Garnett is averaging 15 points and 7.7 rebounds per game. He's helped the Celtics stay competitive - and even move up in the standings - despite the loss of fellow All-Star Rajon Rondo.
