Kevin Garnett, The Trade That Sent You To The Celtics Still Hurts

Dear Kevin Garnett,

Today felt like yesterday:

Yeap, on this day ten years ago, despite the persistent rumors of you playing elsewhere, you were finally traded to the Celtics.

You later won a title with them, and the Timberwolves won 22 games.

A post shared by Kevin Garnett (@tic_pix) on
