I’m sure you remember way back in the day, before the era of LeBron, Wade and Bosh, there was another trio of all-stars that played together: Boston Celtics' Kevin Garnett, Ray Allen and Paul Pierce. OK, so it wasn’t that far back. Shoot, it was actually only four years ago that Garnett left his pathetic Timberwolves team to go East. Seems long ago, doesn’t it?
Well after those four years that brought a championship to Boston, talks are starting up about the end for those three in Beantown.
Allen and Garnett only have one year left on their contracts and we may not even get to play that season. Plus, it’s no secret that they’re all getting up there in age, so all the talk is definitely justified. But to hear Allen talk about it, you’d think the he and Garnett were turning 24 next week. Allen says he’s still got plenty left in the tank and adds that Garnett does too, and the pair have no desire to go anywhere else. If we listen to him, we’ll see the Boston trio around for a few more years.
But does it even matter? Should Boston want to keep the trio intact? Is this still a contending team? Not really.
