Kevin Garnett is beloved in Minnesota where he started his career, even despite leaving and winning an NBA title while with the Boston Celtics. Now he’s back with the Timberwolves and paying his fans back in a huge way: by purchasing 1,000 people tickets to tonight’s game against the Los Angeles Clippers.
Garnett explains, “As a gesture of thanks, I would like to treat some fans to Monday night’s game against the Clippers. Love you all and thanks for the live. Enjoy the game on me.” In short: he’s the man.
There are plenty of professional athletes who return home after a long stay in a different city, but few have done something as generous. Fingers crossed Garnett keeps this up.
