Kevin Garnett retires after 21 seasons
One of the game greats recently announced retirement from the game after 21 seasons. He joins Kobe Bryant & Tim Duncan as players to retire in 2016.
Garnett had one more year in his contract with the Minnesota Timberwolves and most fans believed that he would stay on for one more season mentoring Minnesota's young players. Instead, he will reach a buyout with the organization, and will call it a career after 21 years in the league.
Garnett will be remembered as one of the greatest and most influential players of his generation. He came to the NBA straight out of High School.
In his prime, he was a force to be reckoned with. Other NBA stars may have been better scorers, but KG's all around talent was nothing to mess around with.
Garnett had 21 seasons with the Timberwolves, Boston Celtics, and Brooklyn Nets. Garnett made 15 All-Star Games, 12 All-Defense teams, and 12 All-NBA teams. He has one title which he won with the Celtics in 2008.
Looks like we will be making a jersey for Garnett very soon. Simply one of the greatests of this generation.
We have a jersey out now!
