Tim Duncan and Kobe Bryant have already left us wondering what we’re going to do with our lives now that they’re retired and we might find ourselves in a bigger quandary as another veteran from the 1990s could be leaving us.

During a dinner in Las Vegas last month the 21-year vet spoke to Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor about the upcoming season and how he’d like to keep playing, but isn’t sure if his body will keep letting him.

From NBA.com:

“I just asked him, ‘Kevin, what are you going to do?’ His answer was, ‘I’d really like to play next year ‘cuz I’d like to go out knowing we got into the playoffs,’” Taylor said.

“Then he said, ‘I don’t know if I can.’

“I asked him, ‘What does that mean?’ And he said, ‘I don’t know.’

“So I asked the question but I didn’t get an answer that helped me. Yes, theoretically, he’d like to play. But he has some doubts of his knees holding up. I believe he told me exactly the truth.”

Garnett is entering the final year of a two-year deal he signed before the start of last season. He is owed $8 million. He averaged 17.8 points, 10 rebounds and 1.3 blocks per game over the course of his career.
