Kevin Garnett signed a three-year, $36 million contract in the offseason, but admits there was a time when he wondered whether he wanted to continue playing this deep into his career. Now 36 and in his 18th NBA season, Garnett has played in more than 1,400 games, regular season and playoffs combined. And he made clear in an interview with Yahoo! Sports that he won't stick around just to stick around if he feels he can't play at a high level.
