Report: Kevin Garnett to retire https://t.co/AYLSFP048X

Garnett had a legendary basketball career that will surely propel him to the Basketball Hall of Fame. He spent most of his career with the Minnesota Timberwolves — where he won MVP in 2004 — and Boston — where he won a championship in 2008. He later spent some less fortunate years with the Brooklyn Nets before ending his career back where it began in Minnesota.
Garnett was the first of a historic generation of players to come to the NBA straight out of high school. After KG chose to skip college and head straight to the pros in 1995, the league saw similar moves from Kobe Bryant, Dwight Howard, and LeBron James.
Now, KG ends his career in one of the best retirement classes of all time, following the earlier retirements of Bryant and KG’s career-long rival Tim Duncan.
In the past, KG has discussed possibly owning the Timberwolves one day. Whatever the legendary player does next will be exciting for everyone involved.
