With New Deal, Kevin Garnett Is Now As Rich As He Is Old
Kevin Garnett once screamed into a reporter's microphone: "ANYTHING IS POSSIBLEEEEE!" That's so true. For example, we went to the moon in 1969. Another crazy fact: It's possible to earn approximately $325 million over the course of a 21-year NBA career. Garnett himself proved that by agreeing to a two-year deal with his old/new team, the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Garnett just finished up his 20th year in the league. By playing next year, he'll tie the record for most seasons ever played, a record co-owned by Robert Parish and Kevin Willis. If he can go until 2017, he'll be the only guy to play 22 seasons -- plus, he'll be the first to be an NBA player in his teens, 20s, 30s and 40s.
Kevin Garnett will have been in the league so long, a kid who was born when KG was drafted will be having his first legal drink this year.
How is this even possible? Oh right:
