While it is no shock that the Celtics are hoping to improve their roster after last season's disappointment in the playoffs, the last position on the court anyone would have considered upgrading is point guard.
Rajon Rondo has been a vital piece for the Celtics over the past few seasons as the team has averaged 58.5 wins per season with him in the line-up.
However Garnett's passion and competitive spirit no longer eclipses his cumbersome and frail performances.
Garnett really struggled with the pace of the professional game last year, this isn't a surprise considering his recent injury problems.
Both sides look likely to play each other without key players on both sides of the football. Wide receivers Jeremy Maclin and Chad Ochocinco, even if he is not a key player, both look set to miss out as Maclin is listed as doubtful and Ochocinco has already been ruled out.
The Chiefs season has been decimated by injuries to key players such as Eric Berry, Tony Moeaki, Jamaal Charles and most recently, starting quarterback Matt Cassel.

The New England Patriots are looking to get back on track today after being handed their second loss of the season, comprehensively, in Pittsburgh last weekend.
Returning to Foxboro to welcome the New York Giants won't be an easy rebound game for the team however.
