The Eastern Conference may have a new contender as it seems Kevin Garnett has been dealt to the C’s for Al Jefferson, Ryan Gomes, Gerald Green, Sebastian Telfair, Theo Ratliff and a No. 1 pick. That’s quite a package, one that mortgages Boston’s future in exchange for a short-lived shot at glory with KG, Paul Pierce and Ray Allen.
Thinking of Garnett’s tearful interview with John Thompson from two years ago as well as his frustrations as an MVP-caliber player locked out of the playoffs for three straight seasons, I’m hoping he has better fortune in Beantown, as long as it doesn’t come at the expense of Washington.
