On the final a few yards of his Hall of Fame career, KG is an intense veteran leader who’s taken young guns like Andrew Wiggins, Karl-Anthony Towns & Zach LaVine under his wing; not many guys have played with more passion than Garnett on the court – treats every game as a new challenge and does not settle for anything less than a maximum effort; walking double-double and perennial MVP candidate back in the day – Garnett had a gauntlet of faceup counters at his disposal & switched like no other on D; the type to treat practice like Game 7 of the Finals…that should say it all!; one of the true legends of the game, KG is a top-5 four man of all time
