With his ability to dribble the ball and his range as a power forward, which was unique at the time, followed by the arrival of Dirk Nowitzki, a few years later, they carried the Garnett’s extremes even further.

Traded to the Boston Celtics, he landed the 2008 NBA championship to then join the Brooklyn Nets and from Brooklyn back with the Minnesota Timberwolves with a well deserved homecoming. According to Garnett it was the only team he wanted to finish his legendary career with.

Upon his retirement he will definitely be a NBA Hall of fame first ballot pick.

His return with the Timberwolves means the world to his fans, finally hoping to see the resurrection of Minnesota, especially after a few bad years following Kevin’s departure and thus he isn’t an impact player his wisdom and knowledge can definitely be of use.

“I’m incredibly excited and rejuvenated to be part of this talented, committed team.”
