The Big Ticket goes for 40: Reminiscing on Garnett's 22-year journey

Kevin Garnett turned 40 years old on May 19. I repeat, KG turned 40 YEARS OLD. Being 40 is young when you aren’t a professional athlete, but in KG’s case, it shows that he has given over half of his life to the game of basketball. In my case, it is a reminder that I am one step closer to being washed up. At 29 years of age, I still feel young and spry, but with KG turning...

Kevin Garnett: Boston fans are better than New York fans

Kevin Garnett is clear about where his allegiances lie. While the Timberwolves forward calls Minnesota home — he spent the first 12 seasons of his career there and returned last year via trade — Garnett enjoyed his time with the Boston Celtics and Brooklyn Nets, too.
