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!
