Kevin Garnett, Brooklyn Nets
The Big Ticket was a huge part of the Big Three Celtics team that delivered the 2008 NBA title to Boston. Providing relentless defense, Garnett bolstered the Celtics’ front line after coming to Boston in a trade with the Timberwolves before the 2007-08 season. Garnett averaged 15.7 points and 8.3 rebounds per game during his six seasons in Boston.
In June, after waiving his no-trade clause, KG was traded to the Brooklyn Nets along with Paul Pierce and Jason Terry for a collection of players including Kris Humphries and Gerald Wallace, and draft picks. Garnett is currently averaging 6.9 points and 7.8 rebounds in a reduced role with Brooklyn.
