The NBA could be losing its third legendary player this offseason

Please say it ain't so!

The NBA has already lost two living legends to retirement this offseason in Kobe Bryant and Tim Duncan. It's looking like we're losing another one unfortunately as his time has run out in the league even though we all thought he could play forever.

Among all the legends retiring this one has decided to keep his legacy going

Kevin Garnett has been playing in the league for over 20 years and doing so at a high level. He averaged 17.8 points and 10 rebounds per game over the course of his long and storied career. He of course got his only NBA Finals ring with the Boston Celtics in 2008 with Ray Allen, Paul Pierce and Rajon Rondo and was then traded to the Brooklyn Nets. Eventually he made his way back to his roots with the Minnesota Timberwolves to mentor their young core of Zach LaVine, Karl-Anthony Towns, Andrew Wiggins and Shabazz Muhammad.

It seems that the Timberwolves and Garnett have come to an understanding and will mutually part ways, likely leading to his retirement.

Garnett has said for a long time that he would want to finish his career in Minnesota so you have to think that the 40-year old is going to probably put up the shoes and work behind the scenes for the team. He's expressed interest in owning the team so it only makes sense that he would stay around and try to learn a thing or two about how the front office works. Hopefully the Timberwolves can make it happen and keep KG on the staff somehow.
