How Long Has KG Played in the NBA?

Shareef Abdur-Rahim scored 15,000 career points in the NBA.  He retired from the Sacramento Kings five years ago….  Shareef Abdur-Rahim is younger than Kevin Garnett.

Garnett was teammates with Spud Webb and Terry Porter.  That was eighteen years ago….  Windows ’95 was just launching.

Terry Porter was coached by Dr. Jack Ramsay in Portland….  At the time Len Bias was still at the University of Maryland.

Kevin Garnett was drafted one slot ahead of “Big Country” Bryant Reeves.  Reeves played four-hundred NBA games for the Vancouver Grizzlies.   Reeves retired the summer before 9/11.

Garnett’s current coach Jason Kidd was named NBA rookie-of-the-year the month before Garnett was drafted by the Timberwolves.

Finally, KG has played more NBA minutes than Wilt Chamberlain.  I would love to see him tie Elvin Hayes for fourth most career minutes at 50,000 and then hang it up.  This would likely occur next season which is his last year under contract in Brooklyn.
