At 37, Garnett Enters Twilight Of His Career

Kevin Garnett sat in the visitor’s locker room at Target Center, searching for answers to difficult questions after yet another disheartening loss by his Brooklyn Nets. Just down the hall, Minnesota’s Kevin Love got dressed a few feet from the locker that Garnett called home for 12 years. And while he was trying to be respectful of the player that put the Timberwolves franchise on the map, Love delivered the hard truth that has dropped like an anvil on Garnett and the $190 million Brooklyn Nets this season. “I joked with (Kevin Martin) tonight that I’m glad I didn’t have to guard him in his prime,” Love said after needing just three quarters to bury KG and the Nets en route to a 30-point victory Friday night. “Because he was something else. He’s a Hall of Fame player. He’s the Big Ticket.”

He’s 7-0 against the Timberwolves with four of those wins at Target Center, averaging 14.9 points and 10.3 rebounds in those games. “I played in this building before, for countless years,” Garnett said, before breaking into a smile and a chuckle. “I hope that I at least make a couple shots in this place.” Indeed, more than just a couple. A Garnett return is a good chance to break out the old highlight tape, and remember.
