Celtics fans experienced a resurrection of the Kevin Garnett during the second half of the 2011-12 season, not as a power forward but as a center. After Jermaine O'Neal suffered a wrist injury, head coach Doc Rivers moved Garnett to the center position where he excelled for the remainder of the season.
The transition seemed to rejuvenate KG, who shot 50 percent and averaged 19.2 points in the postseason. Garnett was also dominant in the paint, averaging 8.2 rebounds and one block per game.
As the Celtics contemplate whether to re-sign Garnett or not, they have to keep his recent revitalization in mind. He was supposed to be a player on the decline, but ended up being a major factor in their post-all-star break success. If KG plays at the same level next year, the C's could definitely have another year as a serious title contender.
