Nets head coach, Jason Kidd, recently said that it was unlikely he would play Kevin Garnett in back-to-back games this season, so he spoke to the 18-year NBA veteran about limiting his minutes, but “it didn’t go too well,” according to Garnett. The 37-year-old is not on board with Kidd limiting his minutes, telling USA Today that he thinks it’s important for the team’s chemistry that he be out on the floor with everyone.
“It didn’t go too well,” Garnett said. “I understand what he’s saying. He just wants to make sure I’m durable. … I just don’t want to be told anything. I think I’ve earned the right to have an opinion on something that I’m doing. From a chemistry standpoint, I think it’s important for me to be out there with everybody.”
