KG suggests that his quote was taken out of context.  He says he was speculating that he wouldn't make the team in the future, not that he was planning on retiring.

KG also indicates that he wants to retire a Celtic and be "buried in green".

Not surprised.  KG ain't retiring unless the team gets completely blown up.  And even then he might not retire.

I knew it was a big to do about nothing.  It sure was funny watching everyone get all twisted up over it though.

Not shocked that's what he's saying now, but not completely buying it either. KG seems like a very candid person, and I think he just let something very personal slip without thinking about it. This is all damage control.

I'm less likely to take KG too literally, especially right after a tough game.

Absolutely a fair point. Being that exhausted can lead to saying impulsive gut reaction things you don't mean in hindsight, at least as likely as saying true things you didn't mean to reveal to the media.

I really don't think KG ever thought he'd be voted in as a starter this late in his career.

I don't know... We saw the video: i still think (or better: fear) he was referring to two things

1) there is a possibility he is going to traded this year (will retire in the offseason)
2) he knows danny is going to rebuild in the offseason (same conclusion: kg will retire in the offseason

Same here, I was shocked myself
Not saying he didn't deserve it this season, but that the casual fans wont think so
