Celtics forward Kevin Garnett returned to practice today after the missing the previous two following the birth of his first child. Garnett declined to speak about the birth and wanted to concentrate on basketball. The 11-time NBA All-Star worked out Friday night as well and has caught up with his teammates by watching video.
“Family issues are never public, so I ask (the media) to respect that. I’m looking forward to play. I’m excited to play about playing tomorrow," Garnett said.
First, they state positively that his absence was for the birth of his first child. Second, KG is a very private person. I am sure details will come out eventually, but for now, it is being kept under wraps.
