After 16 seasons and nearly 48,000 minutes played, saying Kevin Garnett is worn down would be an understatement. His game become limited in the playoffs this past season as we watched him struggle with his lift in his heavily fatigued performances.
You would think that some extended rest is what he needs right now, but it could hurt him in the end.
If there is a reduced season, then teams will have less rest in between games. There may even be three straight nights of games two squeeze enough games into a short amount of time. This would be a nightmare for Garnett as he will be severely overworked and perhaps burnt out once the playoffs come around.
If the entire season is cancelled, that will waste just a little more of what he could have left as he'll be another year older once the 2012-13 season begins.
