Kevin Garnett Just Wants to Dunk Without All the Hoopla

It’s no secret that the end is near for Kevin Garnett’s professional basketball career. The man is 38-years-old and is pretty much in that phase where people get excited about an ancient dude doing anything relatively athletic—like dunking a basketball. Garnett did just that against the Kings on Monday night, finishing an alley oop thrown by Sergey Karasev in the third quarter to put his team up 13.
Even better for KG, the Nets came away with a 107-99 victory despite almost getting Ranadive’d. However, it wasn’t all smiles for Garnett after the game. Why? Apparently The Big Ticket isn’t thrilled with everyone’s enthusiastic response to his pretty basic dunk:


 
Then he had an old-man moment and asked the media if he really looks that frail on the court:

 
Big Ticket has a point, he’s 6’11,” of course he can still dunk. He’ll probably be throwing it down at YMCA pick-up games when he’s 44 because he’s freaking tall.  So I think we should all just settle down and save the theatrics for old players when they are deserved (e.g., Vince Carter throwback dunks).
