I know there are other trades going on in the NBA but this one is the biggest one and the one that has me the most excited. I know Kevin Garnett is on the tail end of his career and isn’t putting up great numbers or has any of the physical abilities he did 10 years ago. But there is always something so beautiful for me whenever I see a player go back to the team he started his career with.
Kevin Garnett was a legend in Minnesota. He was the big ticket. The team hasn’t been to the playoffs since he took them there in 2004 and even though he might not be able to contribute much other than wisdom, this looks like the final stopping point for him before he hangs them up and possibly takes a bigger leadership role in the front office.
The exciting part for me is the nostalgia. His return to Minnesota is just that for me. And it will be fun for me to watch him play in those blue, black and silver uniforms.
With years of wisdom, knowledge of how to win and being one of the best players of this generation, this is a nice ending to his great career. I hope they give him the greatest of welcomes when he returns for his first game back in Minneapolis. He was great there. And now he can finish there.
