Kevin Garnett, a key figure in their last conquest who averaged 15.7 points and 8.3 rebounds over six seasons in Boston is supposedly next in line to have his jersey retired, Pierce told ESPN's Chris Forsberg. Although Garnett first emerged as one of the greatest power forwards in the league during his first 12 seasons with the Minnesota Timberwolves, Pierce says he would prefer to be eternally honored by the Celtics.
