Kevin Garnett is a professional basketball player of the NBA who has a net worth of $180 million.

He won the gold medal in the 2000 olympics, he was the NBA Defensive Player of the Year in 2008, and NBA All Star Game MVP for 2003, as well as a long list of other achievements.
Things started going down hill in the 2004-2005 season, with the Minnesota Timberwolves not making the playoffs for the first time and then having Cassell traded in 2005-2006 season, this was their second worse playing record since Kevin became a franchise player. When the decision came to trade Kevin Garnett, there were several teams making offers. There were The Golden State Warriors, Indiana Pacers, Phoenix Suns, Los Angeles Lakers, Boston Celtics, and last but not least, the Dallas Mavericks. In the final decision, Kevin was traded to the Boston Celtics, but at the very high price of five players in exchange, Gerald Green, Ryan Gomes, Theo Ratliff, Sebastian Telfair, and Al Jefferson, a monetary consideration and more. Kevin Garnett signed a three year contract extension for $60 million with the Boston Celtics the very day the trade was made public.

This could mean big changes for the Celtics, and not good ones.
Kevin Garnett was born in Greenville, South Carolina in 1976 and lived most of his childhood years in Maudlin. Even as a child, he loved playing basketball, and took his love of the sport with him all through high school. For his senior year, he transferred to Farragut Career Academy, in Chicago, because of some trouble he had at Maudlin. He did so well on the high school basketball team that they gave him the nickname, Mr. Basketball, for Illinois. Since then, he has earned the nicknames The Franchise, Da Kid, KG and most recently, The Big Ticket. Even though his mother and step father wanted him to concentrate more on his studies, all he could think about was basketball. Even then he was determined to be a great basketball player in the NBA.
