Karl-Anthony Towns says he’ll miss Garnett, will pick up torch

1 Comment

The greatest seasons in Minnesota Timberwolves history were led by peak Kevin Garnett, a team that could have made the NBA Finals had it not been for the Shaq/Kobe Lakers.

After going to Boston and winning a ring (then a couple forgettable seasons in Brooklyn) Garnett returned to Minnesota to end his career. On his return, Garnett was more mentor than player for a young team on the rise, and KG formed a particular bond with Karl-Anthony Towns.

Friday Kevin Garnett announced his retirement. Later that day KAT said he would pick up the torch from KG.
