Game 7 Garnett Chatter

There were rumors of a possible return even before Kevin Garnett [1] decided to hold off knee surgery. There were the conspiracy theorists who believed KG would suit up if it came down to a Celtics [2]/Cavs Eastern Conference Finals. Reggie Miller [3] believed Garnett would return even sooner if the Celtics made it out of the first round.

But now the Celtics are tied 3-3 with the Bulls and elimination is on the line. It was only inevitable that the rumors — remember, nothing has been confirmed — would heat up.
