There is no doubt that Garnett deserves the honors. His numbers speak for themselves. He averaged a double-double for his career.
Garnett was a beast with the Minnesota Timberwolves. In his best season, he averaged 24.2 points and 13.9 rebounds. He even won the MVP award.
In history, Garnett’s numbers stand the test of time. His points total is 17th in NBA history and he is 9th in rebounds.
Besides the numbers, there was Garnett’s attitude. He was always hustling and never gave up on the court. Garnett also might have been one of the best trash talkers to play the game.
What I remember Garnett for the most though is his time in Boston. The trade that brought him here had the city going crazy.
As soon as Garnett came the pressure was on. The expectation was that he would bring a championship and put Boston on the map.
Garnett didn’t let fans down. In his first season with the team, he brought the Celtics franchise its 17th NBA championship.
Who can forget a moment that will live in NBA history for eternity? There’s the iconic picture of Michael Jordan holding the Larry O’Brien trophy and then there is Kevin Garnett saying “anything is possible.”
So I know for a fact that we will be seeing Kevin Garnett in the Hall of Fame very soon. There is no doubt that he will be apart of the class of 2020.
