WALTHAM — Only three players have played 20 NBA seasons: Robert Parish, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Kevin Willis.Kevin Garnett will push the number to four in tonight’s season opener against the Celtics when he returns to his old Garden home with the Brooklyn Nets.

Thoughts on the eve of the 2014-2015 Golden State Warriors season

Kevin Garnett once famously bellowed, "ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE!" It seems he was right: the 2014 offseason, most assuredly the longest in NBA history, and maybe the longest span of time of anything ever, has at last come to its merciful end. Ladies and gentlemen: Let there be basketball. And while this vampire took its pint of blood from many of us, the dawning of the season has torched its sickly marble flesh into ash; we survived its terror; and here we are, standing tall, the sun shining, the Bay brimming with sports enthusiasm, and our 2014-2015 Golden State Warriors standing there on...

Is this Kevin Garnett's swan song? Maybe, but it won't be quiet!

In what may be his last season, Kevin Garnett looks to be more aggressive, increase his leadership role. Let's face it.  Last year was not one of Kevin Garnett's finest seasons.  His field goal percentage, 44%, and his PPG, 6.5, were the lowest of his career.  His rebounding numbers, 6.6 RPG, haven't been that low since his rookie season.  His 54 games played was the lowest total since the 1998-99 season. He missed 22 games to back spasms. Wednesday's opener against Boston marks the beginning of Garnett's 20th season.  Only three other players, Robert Parrish, Kevin Willis and Kareem...

Garnett approaches 20th season with 'edge'

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. –- After completing his workout, Kevin Garnett sat underneath a basket as Brooklyn Nets rookie big man Cory Jefferson worked on post moves against Mason Plumlee. Garnett remembers what it was like to be preparing for his first NBA season opener. Back in 1995, Garnett was a skinny 19-year-old who made his NBA debut playing 16 minutes off the bench behind Christian Laettner and Tom Gugliotta for the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Kevin Garnett slams media for writing off Nets this season

As outside expectations have dropped dramatically since his arrival in Brooklyn, Kevin Garnett made it clear Monday that he has little respect for journalists and their predictions.

D-WIll, KG, Lopez won't travel to Boston

Deron Williams, Kevin Garnett, Markel Brown and Brook Lopez will not travel to Boston Wednesday for the Nets' preseason finale against the Celtics. Williams is getting a rest day. Garnett and Brown continue to battle stomach viruses, while Lopez remains out with a foot sprain.

Pregame notes: KG could miss Boston trip

NEW YORK -- A couple notes from Monday’s pregame availability prior to the Brooklyn Nets-Philadelphia 76ers preseason game: • Nets coach Lionel Hollins said power forward Kevin Garnett will probably not travel up to Boston for Wednesday’s preseason finale. Hollins said he wasn’t planning on playing Garnett anyway, “so this gives him an extra day to kinda get stronger and back on his feet.” Garnett has been sidelined with a stomach virus.

Garnett out vs. Celtics

NEW YORK -- Brooklyn Nets power forward Kevin Garnett will not play against the Boston Celtics in Sunday’s 44-minute preseason game at Barclays Center. Garnett has missed the last two practices due to a stomach virus. Center Brook Lopez (foot sprain) is also out, as expected, meaning Mason Plumlee and Mirza Teletovic will start for Brooklyn in the frontcourt.

KG's mentality is to 'be more aggressive'

Kevin Garnett can’t guarantee how he will play each night this season. But he vows to be more aggressive than he was last season. “My mindset last year was taking a step back,” Garnett said in an interview with the BrooklynNets.com. “This year is to be more aggressive, to get back to my winning ways because I’m an aggressive person and I’m an aggressive player, to bring that attitude." Garnett, 38, says he began training earlier this offseason, preparing to play in his 20th season even if he didn’t notify the Nets of his plans early on this summer.

Kevin Garnett: 'My mindset last year was taking a step back. This year is to be more aggressive'

A year ago, Kevin Garnett was all about being a role player, all about deferring and moving out of spotlight.  He limited his training, started the season slowly, got caught up in what some thought was an arbitrary minutes restriction, then missed 22 straight games to back spasms.  By season's end, the team was a disappointment and he had his worst year ever. He tells Lenn Robbins in Beijing that is not going to happen again. "My mindset last year was taking a step back," he told Robbins in the exclusive interview. "This year is to be more aggressive, to get back to my winning ways...

Garnett refelcts on Class of 1995

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Fifty-eight players were selected in the 1995 NBA Draft. Twenty seasons later, only Kevin Garnett remains. Seeing and speaking with a couple members of the Class of 1995 who were picked right before him put the 38-year-old power forward’s longevity into perspective, he said Monday. “[Jerry] Stackhouse [No. 3 pick] came in here the other day [to do radio interviews] the other day. He and I came out in the same class, so that kind of puts things in perspective,” said Garnett, who was taken No.

Hollins expects more minutes from KG

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Brooklyn Nets coach Lionel Hollins said Sunday that he “expects” power forward Kevin Garnett to play more in 2014-15 than he did last season. “I do expect him to play more,” Hollins said. “He’s been in great shape. He’s very sharp. We’d like to see him contribute more than 18-20 minutes.” Garnett, the 38-year-old veteran who is entering his 20th season in the NBA, averaged a career-low 20.
