|Happy to be there again? Not exactly...|
Tomorrow Garnett is going to have to start the game alongside three Miami Heat, and Carmelo "Honey Nut Cheerios" Anthony. Another of his teammates, Kyrie Irving, was born in 1992. Garnett was already playing in the NBA by 1995. Can you really blame KG for not wanting to hang out with these guys?
At the All-Star "practice" today many of the younger players for both teams stood around laughing and joking while throwing up half court shots. Garnett spent this time off to the side, begrudgingly talking to Kobe Bryant. At this point in their careers, I think both those guys have earned the right to stay home if they chose too (they're tied for 2nd all-time with 15 All-Star selections each, behind Kareem Abdul-Jabbar's 19). Even if his skills are still there next season, it's perfectly acceptable for Kevin Garnett to be done with All-Star Games.
