Boston forward Kevin Garnett said this weekend "is definitely my last All-Star Game," although he would not elaborate on why he wouldn't be back after playing in the midseason exhibition for the 15th time in his 18-year career.

The former Timberwolves star, 36, said he's bringing along friends and family so he can enjoy this weekend's game in Houston. But Garnett did not say if he was planning to retire or not.

Garnett is averaging 15 points and 7.7 rebounds per game. He has helped the Celtics stay competitive -- and even move up in the standings -- despite the loss of fellow All-Star Rajon Rondo.
