If you have ever managed to attend a Boston Celtics home game in person, odds are you have noticed the Celtics have a lot of jerseys retired and hanging from the rafters alongside the also copious championship banners.

And while such things naturally go together, at some point the question always pops up as to whether the team has been too liberal retiring jerseys over the years, particularly when a potential jersey retirement candidate is set to have theirs raised up to the rafters. Such is the case with yet another retirement prospect, this time Boston big man legend Kevin Garnett.

And while he may have spent the bulk of his Hall of Fame career elsewhere, he transformed a moribund culture back into a vital one, and helped hang the team’s first banner in decades.

On the latest episode of the CLNS Media podcast “Celtics Beat,” hosts Adam Kaufman and Evan Valenti debate whether or not KG should have his number in the rafters with Boston Globe beat writer Gary Parish.

Watch the clip embedded above to hear their take on this potentially touchy subject. We can’t say we disagree!
