Timberwolves VOTW: Kevin Garnett Wins All-Star Game MVP 2003

In the spirit of All Star Weekend for the NBA, this week’s VOTW takes us back to the 2003 All Star Game, when Kevin Garnett put on a clinic in the double overtime victory for the Western Conference.  While this game might be remembered for its tribute to Michael Jordan … or Mariah Carey’s halftime performance as each and every NBA player laughed in the background … it was KG who took over the game itself, finishing with 37 points on 17-24 shooting.  He also collected 9 rebounds, 5 steals, and 3 assists.  All in a day’s work, even if he did put in 41 minutes.  I’m sure Flip Saunders wasn’t thrilled about that.

Sit back and enjoy the six-plus minutes of highlights of KG.  At the same time, note that KG played in his fifteenth All Star Game this past weekend!  Congratulations KG!
