Kevin Garnett announces retirement with Minnesota
Minnesota Timberwolves forward Kevin Garnett officially announced his retirement from the NBA on Friday.
News broke earlier in the week that Garnett and the Wolves were talking buyout, so it appears the Big Ticket is riding into the sunset. He played 21 seasons in the NBA and was dominant on both ends of the court. He will retire with one championship, an MVP trophy and 15 All Star game selections. He led the league in rebounding four straight seasons between 2003 and 2007 and he is a lock for the Hall of Fame.
Garnett will end his career with averages of 17.8 points, 10.0 rebounds and 3.7 assists per game. He had a .501 effective field goal percentage and a .546 true shooting percentage over 21 seasons in the Association.
