Kevin Garnett is who he is, and what he is is what he's become, which is...Kevin Jesus?

First off, it's a big day for the team over at Hardwood Paroxysm and their editor Matt Moore, who do a fantastic job at waxing intelligently about the NBA. And we offer up our congratulations and wish them well in their new endeavor. Miles Wray has an interesting perspective piece over at Hardwood Paroxysm with an explanation about who Kevin Garnett is and ultimately how his career will end, whether it be this year or next with the Brooklyn Nets. Garnett, who is in his 19th season in the NBA, his first with the Nets, has had what could be considered -- on paper at least -- his "worst"...

Starting Five: Which center gets left out?

NEW YORK -- Before Sunday night’s game, Brooklyn Nets coach Jason Kidd said that he’d love to play all three of his centers -- Kevin Garnett, Mason Plumlee and Andray Blatche -- in the playoffs, but realistically, one of them is probably going to be the odd man out. It’s certainly not going to be Garnett. That’s why the Nets traded for him. And the way Plumlee is playing right now, it doesn’t appear that it’s going to be him either.

Nets dispose of Magic easily, 97-88

Nets dispose of Magic easily, 97-88

The Nets kicked off their final week of the regular season with a 97-88 over the Orlando Magic. The crowd was fairly electric for a Sunday early evening game against the lowly Magic, but the Nets were not. Brooklyn came out sloppy, committing seven turnovers in the first quarter despite shooting 58% from the floor. The Nets played inside and off of cuts. On the very first play Deron Williams went back-door on Victor Oladipo for an easy finish off the pass from Kevin Garnett. The highlight of the quarter was when Marcus Thornton threw the ball to nearly the top of the backboard where Mason...

Garnett getting his game back right on time

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Paul Millsap wanted to go after Kevin Garnett. You could tell. The two had been jostling for position -- pushing and shoving one another in the post -- midway through the fourth quarter of Friday night’s game. So when Millsap caught the ball near the 3-point arc on the right wing, he had one thing on his mind -- and it didn’t involve passing. Millsap drove to the basket. Garnett stayed with him the whole way.

Starting Five: Where do Nets stand?

Some Thursday morning thoughts on the Brooklyn Nets following Wednesday night’s 115-111 loss to the Orlando Magic: • If there was one good thing that came out of it, it was Kevin Garnett asking coach Jason Kidd if he could enter the game in the fourth quarter. Kidd, clearly wanting to take precaution, said no. But Garnett was really solid in his 17 minutes, scoring five points, grabbing eight rebounds and dishing out a season-high six assists.

Kevin Garnett will NOT play against the Heat, will play vs. the Magic

As the regular season winds down, Jason Kidd has decided to rest Kevin Garnett on Tuesday night against the Miami Heat, but will play him on Wednesday when the Nets suit up against the Orlando Magic. Jason Kidd said Kevin Garnett won't play tomorrow at Miami, but will play at Orlando on Wednesday. Garnett is practicing today in Miami. — Andy Vasquez (@andy_vasquez) April 7, 2014 Garnett returned to action on Saturday night against the 76ers, after having missed the 19 previous games with back spasms.

Film Study: KG's return

KG back, literally. Kevin Garnett made his return to the floor after missing 19 straight games and played exceptionally well. Garnett played just 13 minutes in Philadelphia and sat the last 21 minutes of the game, but he looked great for a guy who has been out for more than a month. Garnett scored 10 points on four-of-five shooting and grabbed four rebounds. In limited minutes, and his first game back, Garnett exceeded expectations and debunked the theory that he will need several games to get reacquainted with the Nets system. From the onset of the game one could see that KG was ready to...

Ian Eagle thinks Paul Pierce will be back ... but Kevin Garnett could retire

Ian Eagle thinks Paul Pierce will be back ... but Kevin Garnett could retire

Boston's CLNS Radio hosts Larry H. Russell and Dr. Andre Snellings spoke this weekend with Ian Eagle about the NCAA's and other things, but also spoke with him about the future of Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett. Eagle, who's as much a reporter as an announcer, said he can see two different fates for the Hall of Famers. He thinks Pierce will sign a two-year deal with the Nets in the off-season, but suggests Garnett could mull retirement at season's end. Asked by a Boston fan, did he think Pierce and Garnett would be Nets next season, Eagle replied... If you asked me that question six weeks...

37-year-old missed 19 games with back spasms

Garnett 'able to contribute' in return

Brooklyn Nets center Kevin Garnett said he felt like a rookie on Saturday night in Philadelphia. “I had to blow the cobwebs off some of the plays,” the 37-year-old veteran, who had missed the last 19 games due to back spasms, told reporters. “I was not nervous, but really anxious to get out there.” The question going in was simple: What Garnett were the Nets getting? The KG that was struggling to become acclimated with his new role and fighting a losing battle with father time in 2013, or the KG that had become their emotional leader and helped turn their season around before...

KG impressive in long-awaited return as Nets hold off Sixers

KG impressive in long-awaited return as Nets hold off Sixers

The sight of Kevin Garnett draining jumpers in warm-ups shouldn’t be an intriguing development. But since Garnett hadn’t played in more than a month because of back spasms, missing 19 straight games, it was kind of novel.
