Kevin Garnett's 15th All-Star Game will also be his last.
According to CSNNE.com, following the Celtics' win over the Bulls on Wednesday, Garnett told reporters that he would like the 2013 NBA All-Star Game to be his final ride.
"This is definitely my last All-Star Game," Garnett said. "Y'all don't know what I know. Put it like this, I'm more than grateful for going (to the All-Star Game). I'm not gonna act like I got more All-Star games in me or whatever."
However, the Boston big man, who still has two years remaining on his contract, did not explain how he plans to circumvent the All-Star Game voting process that gives fans the power to elect players to the event.
Jordan picks Kobe over LeBron
Michael Jordan, who turns 50 on Feb. 17, recently picked sides in the great Kobe Bryant-LeBron James debate while talking to NBA TV's Ahmad Rashad, via ProBasketballTalk. Jordan, not surprisingly, went with the championship argument for his measure of greatness and picked Bryant with his five championships over James' one.
“If you had to pick between the two, that would be a tough choice,” Jordan said, “but five beats one every time I look at it.”
Although Jordan did admit that James' career is far from over, and the Heat star could eventually surpass Bryant's ring collection, which would tie him with Jordan's six.
