Kevin Garnett has been making the most out of his retirement only months into it. After securing his own segment in TNT’s “Area 21”, the 2004 MVP has become the “big man whisperer” after turning an already exciting product by the name of Karl-Anthony Towns into an absolute nightmare for opponents.
With Towns now a 20-point, 10-rebound threat on a nightly basis, Garnett has moved on to a consultant role for the Milwaukee Bucks, tutoring the likes of Giannis Antetokounmpo, Thon Maker, and Khris Middleton.

Perhaps the scary thing is just how good the Greek Freak can get with pointers from the Timberwolves icon on the regular. Garnett was a notably mediocre shooter coming into the league from Farragut Academy in Chicago, but worked his tail off in the following summers to develop his mid-range game and footwork around the basket.

If Antetokounmpo can pick up those precious fundamentals and add the range to go with it, there wouldn’t be a scarier sight than facing up against him, knowing there’s no possible holes to exploit on defense.
No better birthday present than lessons from uncle KG himself. What a treat!
