Walk away, KG.

    Take the I-95 North, KG. And put “I’m Shipping Up To Boston” on repeat until you get there.

    I was sure he would walk away last year. As a fan I wish he had because it was sad watching him struggle. But if he doesn’t want to leave $10 or $20 million on the table I won’t begrudge him. He more than earned it in the past, and the minute he retires we’ll all happily forget that he ever wore a Nets uniform. File it away with Barkley in Houston, Olajuwon in Toronto, and Ewing in Orlando.

      Not sure if it’s money with KG. But I’m pretty sure KG will lose his damn mind once you take his basketball sneakers away. That dude is a fierce competitor and will remain hungry no matter what.

      • CFH

        Well, he certainly doesn’t need any more and I doubt it’s high on his list of priorities. But I bet it’s easier to drag your broken body through one more year when that kind of contract is in place than when it isn’t.

          Or just fake injuries, stay home and collect them checks!
          Not that he would but I know I would. Ha ha!

          Well, I wouldn’t if I were playing for the Celtics.

          But I would if I were playing for the Nets!

    I miss him already..19 years of pure awesomeness. thank you, KG

    • LA Flake

      thank you, KG, for 6 amazing years.

      There. Corrected for you. :)

      • swissflix

        aaaah, you got me there! ;)

        • LA Flake

          IN YOUR FACE, #$%#@!!! IN YOUR &*^%$#%^&*&$# FACE!!!

          (that’s how KG would’ve responded)

            god i never thought i’d miss a swearing man someday

  • bill_nair

    Even if he plays next year it won’t be the same. Hate to say it but it’s time to hang it up. Come be an assistant for Brad.

    • LA Flake

      I don’t want our assistant coach to lead the league in technicals.

  • RedsLoveChild

    Tough choice for KG :

    1} Wake up each morning to the sound of crashing waves in Malibu


    2} Collect another $10M to languish and freeze in Brooklyn

    • tvor03

      That’s a win-win if there ever was one.

      • RedsLoveChild

        Nice work if you can get it!

        I`ve never heard of anyone walking away from $10M…so, I`m guessing his fans will get to see him one more year.

  • Rich Jensen

    Hang it up KG. The only thing you’ve got to look forward to next year is aches, pains, and a coach your age who doesn’t know what he’s doing.

  • Kenney Johnston

    KG is CLEARLY not about the money at this stage of his career. Thats not his MO.

    • Kenney Johnston

      With that said, he should retire and pull a PJ Brown ala 08′ for ONE LAST HOORAH! Maybe it can be to aim for Banner 18? K-Love???
