Happy Birthday KG

KWAPT May 18, 2012 Celtics News, Kevin Garnett 9 Comments

He came into the NBA, straight out of high school in 1995. Since then, Kevin Maurice Garnett has racked up an NBA championship ring, an MVP trophy, 14 all-star selections, a defensive player of the year award and many more accolades.

Love him or hate him, you cannot deny his impact on the NBA and of course our beloved Boston Celtics. Since arriving in Beantown in 2007, he has become the heart and soul of this franchise and a hero and icon to it's fans. So KG, from myself and all of CelticNation, Happy Birthday.

Enjoy a career retrospective in photos after the jump…

    The old pics of him are so weird, it’s like seeing Dwight Howard with braces. Even though he’s not playing in it, the photo of him yelling at Ben Gordon is perfectly indicative of the intensity and nastiness KG brings to every game. Just a complete warrior.

    Also, is it just me or is Kobe loving watching Garnett dunk?

    Much love to the Big Ticket. He’s changed my perspective as a fan and person. It’s all about defense, heart and hustle.

    Nope-it’s not you. Kobe is loving it. That pic is from the 1998 ASG at Madison Square Garden. Kobe & KG played together on the West squad.

    I agree. Hate him or love him, he is an impact player. It’s no lie that p2 said in the association that they cannot win a championship without Kevin garnett.
