|The "Big Ticket" will return to Boston in search of his second title|
KG was huge in leading the Celtics to the Eastern Conference Finals and one win away from the NBA Finals by averaging 19.2 points and 10.3 rebounds. Some may question resigning the aging Garnett when the Celtics are looking to get younger. It all revolves around the plan of Celtics' Team President Danny Ainge to rebuild rather than blow up the team. As former NBA head coach and current ESPN analyst Jeff Van Gundy said during Thursday's NBA Draft, there is no need to blow up a team if the plan to blow up is inferior to the plan to rebuild.
Not only will Garnett play a vital role in helping the Celtics in their quest to defeat the Miami Heat in the Eastern Conference, he also adds veteran leadership that can help mold recently drafted Jared Sullinger and Fab Melo into quality replacements. With Rajon Rondo and Avery Bradley proving to be the future of Boston's front court and Paul Pierce having two more years left in his contract, the Celtics hope to rebuild while simultaneously contending for championships.
