Kevin Garnett retired from playing in the offseason, but he hasn’t strayed far from the game. KG popped up at Clippers practice in September and yesterday, the Big Ticket made his way to Milwaukee to work with the young Bucks:
After practice, Giannis shared that Garnett told him that with a “warrior mentality” he “can be great in this League.”
From the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel:
“I’ve talked to a lot of people, a lot of legends, but two of the guys that I really relate to, and I could see the fire in their eyes, were Kobe (Bryant) and KG,” Antetokounmpo said.
“He said the ‘warrior mentality’ at least 200 times. I went there again and I was talking with Khris, and KG again said it 100 more times. He said without it you can’t be great in this league.”
Jabari Parker also commented that KG is “not a human:”
“He can offer a different mentality. He’s just a different person. He’s not human, the way he approaches the game.
“If anybody can take a fraction of what he offers, it can change a whole career.”
