From CBS Sports - Thunder’s Perkins reflects on Celtics years, uses lessons in role with OKC by Ken Berger
Despite the comfort zone Perkins has found in the heartland, you get the sense a piece of him died when the Celtics fell to the Heat in Game 7. Perkins spoke with his mentor, Kevin Garnett, a couple of days ago and came away with a couple of distinct impressions: 1) KG is conflicted about retirement, and 2) He won’t play for any coach other than Doc Rivers.
"He’s caught in between what he wants to do," Perkins said. "This is his 17th year, so I don’t know. … But I wouldn’t be surprised if they do give one more go at it, just knowing their hearts and their competitiveness. They might go out there and give it another shot."
