After early season struggles, the Brooklyn Nets have found somewhat of a groove as of late. So has Kevin Garnett. With that and a return to Boston on the horizon Sunday, Garnett talked with reporters Thursday and opened up some about an earlier return of his -- to Minnesota in 2008.
"It was up until I had a personal conversation with Kevin McHale that I started to release some of that -- those flaws and some of those bad times. I started to focus on the positives. I'm a normal positive person. I don't like to dwell on negativity. It was [after that] that I started to let some of that go. The people in 'Sota have always been great to me. I've always had a special place in my heart [for them], Boston as well. The fans and people there have always been good to me, my family and my friends. It's a special place in my heart that I'll always hold for life."
