An induction into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame is the crowning achievement of a long and storied career in the NBA, but one cannot have a storied career of note without the stories that make up its greatness.
To that end, in honor of Boston Celtic icon Kevin Garnett’s entry into the holy of holies for the sport he held so dear, we are sharing this collection of accounts and remembrances of The Big Ticket’s time in the league, both with the Celtics, with whom he won his sole title, and before and after in the other stages of his 21 seasons in the NBA.
Watch or listen to them in the video embedded below put together by Nick Smith with us as we honor KG on his special day as the storm at the center of “ubuntu” gets his just desserts for posterity.
