Kevin Garnett is being praised from all corners of the NBA every day after his retirement announcement last week.

After talking with the Los Angeles Clippers’ Doc Rivers about his next steps, KG also took time to speak with Cleveland Cavaliers head coach Tyronn Lue about his future.

Lue originally offered the future Hall-of-Famer a possible seat on his coaching staff this season this week. But, yesterday the recruitment pitch intensified as the Cavs head man told reporters that The Big Ticket would be present at the Cavaliers’ ring ceremony night.

Anyone could use the help of one of the most versatile big men in NBA history to develop young players. Cleveland’s bigs could benefit from his tutelage because the defense could afford to be shored up. Time will tell if the club will bring the veteran aboard.

At this time it is unclear exactly why the 40-year-old would be in Quicken Loans Arena when the Cavaliers host their season opener against the New York Knicks. But, he will be there and Lue’s efforts seem to have caught on with the former champion’s family.

Cleveland reporters learned from Lue: “Brandi [Garnett’s wife] is pushing for it, trying to get him to come and coach. He says he’s not ready yet. He goes back, ‘I might do it,’ but he’s back and forth. We’ll see.”

It’s hard to argue with the input from a significant other and she’s echoing recurring sentiment that the former MVP needs to be around basketball in some capacity.

After 21 seasons, an NBA championship in 2008, 15 All-Star appearances, and a Defensive Player of the Year award, it is hard to walk away.

If he doesn’t choose to go that route, no one would blame him for that choice. Every time he stepped foot on the court, he gave his all and that’s the kind of thing that can’t be coached.
