Kevin Garnett Retires after 21 years
Kevin Garnett retires after 21 seasons. Go figure he would retire after 21 seasons. I talked about his connections to 12 and 21 over a year ago.
Notice he retires 1 month 2 days before the anniversary of his ex coach Flip Saunder's death as well.
Remember Flip Saunder's became the head coach of Minnesota on the 21st game of Garnett's rookie season.
Minnesota won 21 games the season before and finished 12th in the West. Even finished the season against the "Spurs"=21
Garnett wore # 12 for 12 seasons before leaving to Boston.
Saunders originally fired by T-wolves on 2/12..2005.
Garnett was the original Teen Wolf of the NBA. Last year(2015) just after the Teen Wolves Lavine and Wiggins did well in the All Star game Garnett was traded back to the Twolves.
Then Flip Saunders dies just before the start of Garnett's 21st season.
Kevin Maurice Garnett=216
Philip Daniel Saunders=216, 99
Garnett retires on 9/23 that leaves 99 days in the year.
Saunders dies 99 days before 2/1.
Garnett born on Malcolm X's(Malik El Shabazz) bday as well. Remember Garnett's best friend Malik Sealy died after celebrating Garnett's bday.
Sealy born on 2/1. Also was # 21 for St. Johns which his Wiki image is still shown as even though he played multiple years in the NBA.
Garnett traded back to the T-wolves for "Thaddeus Young"=56
Kevin Garnett=56 His first game back was on 2/25/15 the 56th day of the year.
Thaddeus Young was # 21 for the 76ers before traded to Minnesota too.
T-wolves lost 56 games his rookie season.
Scott Howard=56(Teen Wolf's name on movie)
I even talked about how Garnett was connected to Moses Malone and Darryl Dawkins as Malone was the 1st player out of HS to play in the ABA and Dawkins the 1st player out of HS to play in the NBA.
Garnett was 4th behind Bill Willoughby and Reggie Harding as well. Garnett Drafted 5th though like Dawkins.
Moses Malone played pro basketball for 21 seasons. He holds the record for most offensive rebounds in a game with 21. Started in the NBA age 21. His first game was actually when he was 21 years old 212 days and his team beat Milwaukee by 21 points.
When he played for the 76ers he average 21 points 12 rebounds.
Also finished his career with the "Spurs"=21 U=21 Spurs knocked out of playoffs this year 21 days before the Finals.
Duncan # 21 retired on 7/11.
Garnett retires 2 months 12 days after Duncan.
Mose Malone dies age 60.
Dies on "Rosh"=60 "Hashanah"=60
Flip Saunders dies age 60.
Remember Kobe Bryant's Final game with 60 points was also connected to Moses Malone. Last year the Lakers lost to Minnesota on the season opener in a tribute to Flip Saunders too.
Moses Malone=41=Kobe Bryant
Kobe went out his last game with 4.1 seconds.
13th prime is 41
Kobe from Philadelphia, Moses Malone famous for Philadelphia 76ers.
"The Black Mamba"=213 (Jewish)
Kobe's 60 point game came 213 days after Malone's death.
Lupercalia begins on 2/13...(Wolf Festival).
2/13 to Kobe's Final game on 4/13 is 60 days.
In 2015 2/13 was 111 days before the Finals began.
The NBA Finals=111
Game 1 was 98 to 98 and went to OT.
The Warriors played the Cavs 98 days before that as well.
There's a lot more, I need to go back and find my old info on this. Sucks because most of my old info is in videos and not written down on a blog or in my notepad.
