This Date In The NBA: The Kevin Garnett Trade

It’s been 10 years since the Minnesota Timberwolves’ traded Kevin Garnett to the Boston Celtics. July 31,2007 the Timberwolves traded Garnett to the Celtics for Al Jefferson, Ryan Gomes, Sebastian Telfair, Gerlad Green, Theo Ratliff, and two first-round draft picks (one of which was acquired in a trade with Minnesota a year prior). The deal marked the largest NBA trade ever for one player, giving Boston a new “Big Three.”

The rest is history with Garnett shouting his famous line “anything is possible!” after he helped the Celtics win the a Championship in his first season beating the Los Angeles Lakers in Game 6 131-92 . Yes it wasn’t just Garnett who won the game with Ray Allen hitting seven triples yadda, yadda, yadda.
