What you’re about to read is hard to believe. And though it most likely won’t happen, just the fact the Spurs would even consider signing Kevin Garnett is news. Especially since Tim Duncan apparently hates him.
But if there’s one thing the Spurs do better than any other organization in the league, it’s bringing in different personalities and making it work. And if they are considering Garnett as Buck Harvey of the Express News says they are, the duo of Duncan and Garnett could work in a big way on the court if they are able to sign him.
The Spurs will consider everything and everyone this summer when free agency begins. But one option tossed out this weekend by one in the Spurs organization is not just another name.
The Celtics reacted after the loss Saturday night as if they knew the run is over. And if that is true, and if Garnett wants to continue playing, teams will line up to sign him. He can still defend, and he averaged more than 19 points, 10 rebounds and 36 minutes in the playoffs.
Some will have more money to offer than the Spurs will. Some might have more young talent to put around him. All the Spurs could give Garnett is the closest thing to what he had in Boston, a veteran core with a chance to contend.
Yes, they’re both past their primes and yes they’re polar opposites. But at this stage in their career, we bet that they could make this work. Garnett would undoubtedly fall in line with the rest of Spurs veterans and Duncan would put aside his hatred of Garnett for one last run at a championship. And if this were to happen, they would be an even bigger contender in the West. If that’s even possible.
