WATCH: Celtics Fans Honor Kevin Garnett With Standing Ovation

There exists an unbreakable bond between Celtics fans and Kevin Garnett, which once again manifested itself with about a minute to go in Boston’s 113-99 win Monday night against the visiting Minnesota Timberwolves.

KG sat out the loss, but was thrilled to make the trek to the city where he won his lone NBA championship in 2008.

Garnett was also appreciative during his Sunday trip to Brooklyn.

Per the Star Tribune:

“Both places were memorable,” Garnett said. […] Garnett, who led the Wolves to eight consecutive playoff appearances and a spot in the 2004 Western Conference finals, was traded to Boston in the summer of 2007. There, along with fellow stars Paul Pierce and Ray Allen and coach Doc Rivers, the Celtics won the 2008 NBA championship by beating the Los Angeles Lakers in six games in the finals. The Celtics made another trip to the finals two seasons later, losing in seven games to the Lakers.


With this possibly being Garnett’s final season, and with the Wolves only playing one time in each Eastern Conference city, Garnett’s return to Brooklyn and Boston could be his last as a player. […] “New York was great,” Garnett said. “The living experience there, I will probably have that for the rest of my life. Playing there was different. Playing before the crowd in Brooklyn was dope.”


Garnett was asked one more question. Which city had the better fans, New York or Boston? […] “Bostonians all day,” Garnett said. “And they know that.”
