Gallery: Kevin Garnett Kicksology
Happy birthday to the Big Ticket.
As he celebrates his 35th birthday today, we realize that Kevin Garnett is as far removed from being Da Kid as we were when we first used the nickname. He doesn’t have the same springs he did as a youngster in the League, but the fire has remained the same for the old vet. His journey through the NBA is a staggered set of footprints from many different brands. He came to the League as a Nike wearing rookie and jumped to And1 in 2000. By 2003 he was in adidas, which for seven years seemed like the perfect fit for him. His move to Chinese brand Anta last year was a bit of a stunner, but money talks, whether it’s yuans or dollars. Enjoy this look back at KG, from his days with the Fun Police, to Impossible is Nothing, to the present.
