Kevin Garnett approved the possibility of the Boston Celtics acquiring Stephon Marbury.
"I'm not opposed to Steph. I feel Steph still has a lot of basketball in him, I know his IQ is very, very high. He is one of the best point guards out there to play with. I wouldn't be opposed to that," Garnett said Sunday after the Knicks beat the Celtics.
Asked if he'd take his non-opposition a step further and outright endorse the possible acquisition of Marbury, Garnett put the brakes on.
"I know where this is going, ya'll. Y'all relax, OK?" Garnett told a small crowd of reporters who waited over an hour for him to speak after the game. "If Steph came to this team and made it better, I'm all for that. If anybody came to his team and made it better, I would be for that."
