After more than 55,000 NBA minutes, Kevin Garnett is retiring after a monumental 21 years in the league with three franchises. It marks an end to one of the all time great NBA careers, and leaves behind a legacy few will ever match. He was the MVP in 2004 and the Defensive Player of the Year in 2008. He also won a championship in his first season with the Boston Celtics the same year, beating the Celtics historic rivals, the Los Angeles Lakers. Garnett would go on to yet another Finals appearance in 2010, where once again his Celtics matched up against the Lakers, only this time an epic 7 game series went against the man affectionately labelled ‘The Big Ticket’. Garnett’s versatility was a trademark of his career and few in the league were both as feared and as loved as him. He will be missed.
Team: Los Angeles Lakers.
