Quedan listos los playoffs en la Liga Endesa
La temporada regular llegó a su fin en la Liga Endesa.
Después de 21 temporadas, Kevin Garnett anunció su retiro del basquetbol profesional. Después de una carrera llena de éxitos, el emblema de los Timberwolves de Minnesota y Boston Celtics decidió que era hora de tomar un descanso. Considerado como uno de los más feroces competidores, siempre se caracterizó por ser intenso e intimidar a los rivales.
A pesar de que en su estancia en la NBA se ganó muchos enemigos, al conocer la noticia, algunos jugadores tomaron las redes sociales para expresar su sentimiento tras conocer la noticia.
I mean where do I start. First watching you play at the Solon Cage Classic in Ohio with Team Michigan when u were in HS, I believe I was 10 years old and I was like dang this dude nice!! Then a lil time passed and u were drafted straight out of HS to the pros so I felt like man whoever get him is a lucky team. And I surely wasn't wrong! The KID nickname was fly, swaged out and made a 10 year old kid from Akron believe he could run with the big boys himself! Fast forward 8 years later that kid you inspired entered the draft fresh out of HS as well. Thank you!! Competing vs you in whatever uniform u were in at the time meant the world to me because of two distinctive trait u had. Passion and commitment to just compete every single possession. U showed me what it took and we never played on the same team(All-Star games is different). Thank you! Congratulations to The Big Ticket on a helluva career! HOF is your next stop to cap it all off, the cherry on top!! 1 Love
To one of the best to ever play the game. Salute to KG! pic.twitter.com/Dt9ctMmIex
