Όλοι οι αστέρες του αμερικάνικου μπάσκετ, νυν και πρώην, εξέφρασαν το θαυμασμό τους για τον Κέβιν Γκαρνέτ και εξέφρασαν τη θλίψη τους που ένας τέτοιος παίκτης αφήνει τα παρκέ.
Από τους συμπαίκτες του στη Μινεσότα, για τους οποίους ήταν κάτι σαν big brother, μέχρι τους αντιπάλους του όλο αυτά τα χρόνια, ουδείς είχε να πει κακό λόγο για τον 40χρονο πάουερ φόργουορντ, έναν εκ των κορυφαίων της γενιάς του.
Λεμπρόν Τζέιμς, Στέφεν Κάρι, Σκότι Πίπεν, Τρέισι ΜακΓκρέιντι ήταν μεταξύ εκείνων που "αποχαιρέτησαν" τον KG.
Amazing career for KG! Ultra talented and one of the most intense players I've ever seen. Loved his passion for defense. He was a beast...— Scottie Pippen (@ScottiePippen) September 23, 2016
The first 3 times I ever played against you we both were called for double techs...I'll never forget what you said to me my rookie year during the jump ball to start the game in OKC(I was an awe, but you changed that real quick lol)...I've never hated playing against someone so much but also wanted them to be my teammate as much as you! Hate that we never got that chance but I appreciate you more than you'll ever know as a competitor and I wish you and the the fam the best in what's next in store in life!!! #ThankYou #BigTicket
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— Stephen Curry (@StephenCurry30) September 24, 2016
