As he finds himself at the core of what has to be a head vs. heart dilemma for many Celtics fans -- their heads saying it'd probably be in the Celtics' best long-term interests to trade him and/or Paul Pierce if either veteran can fetch a future building block, while their hearts are saying they want both of those all-timers to someday retire wearing green -- Kevin Garnett is sharing some of what helps him keep his 36-year-old body in such a condition that he's still considered a commodity by NBA teams.

Among some of his secrets: Yoga -- which Garnett says is supposed to help him stay balanced, even as he laughs it off with a leery look -- and an early morning jog, followed by some meditation, along the beach. Oh, and of course there's a healthy dose of Pure Premium Coconut Water from ZICO, which produced and sponsored the videos posted below. If nothing else, they speak to the determination and the discipline it takes to be so good for so long, and vouch for how valuable yoga can be for even the most elite of athletes.

So simply follow this regiment, sprout up to about 7 feet, unleash your inner competitive viciousness and, boom, maybe you could make 15 all-star appearances, too.
