KG's mentality is to 'be more aggressive'

Kevin Garnett can’t guarantee how he will play each night this season.

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.

"This year is to be more aggressive, to get back to my winning ways...
