'Da Kid' Kevin Garnett Has A Big Ticket Back To Minnesota

Decisions, decisions! Forget LeBron’s return to Cleveland, this homecoming story could hit the heart with even more passion.

When Kevin Garnett burst onto the scene with all his trademark energy and enthusiasm, Da Kid hustled into hoop hearts as this writers favourite player, even next to my Los Angeles Lakers’ Kobe Bryant (you can imagine how disappointed I was when that purple and gold dream trade didn’t go down). For 12 seasons he was Minneapolis heart like the purple reign of Prince as he put the whole Minnesota Timberwolves franchise and fans on his power blocking and dunking shoulders.

He is definitely the Wolves best player of all time and his name and that number 21 will all for sure find its pride of place in the old Target Centre rafters. But, wait! Hold the ceremony. Don’t put it up just yet! Lets break out the Mitchell & Ness.

Previously in the career of K.G., after leaving the Wolves after a dozen years, Garnett aligned with Paul Pierce and Ray Allen in Boston for a big-three and Celtic championship that put him in that most storied franchises and the NBA’s legendary lore as one of the greatest of all time. A true Celtic to the champagne, it still wasn’t quite the same however with that perfect pair as his time in the twins.

Then he and P-Double, Paul Pierce where scooped up by the Russian and rap millions of the Brooklyn Nets. Only for Pierce to find a new home this year with a spell with the Wizards of Washington. Now although he’s had a decent veteran tenure with the Nets, it looks like K.G. is officially on his way out too before todays trade deadline, according to league sources.

Several reports indicate that in a dream like storybook ending to his career the Minnesota Timberwolves have lured Garnett back home for his final years of basketball pasture. What a send off this will be for one of this generations greatest? Although Kevin didn’t want to displace his family in New York and the Los Angeles Clippers were also an interested party, it’s great now the night will end with a K.G., M.N. hook up.

Although not to be the superstar frontrunner, this veteran leader could help the exciting young blood of Canadian’s Andrew Wiggins and Anthony Bennett, Spaniard Ricky Rubio and dunking Zach Lavine (not to mention a roster a roll call deeper than you think), really be something. With the rumour upgrading from a quotable “strong belief” that K.G. will waive his no trade contract restriction as we write, Da Kid is now said to be alright with the switch for talented youngster Thaddeus Young.

In other news, Phoenix Suns point scorcher Goran Dragic also finds a new home in Miami’s South Beach, whilst Milwaukee’s Brandon Knight takes his Sun spot. And if that wasn’t enough for you, the Thunder have traded Reggie Jackson to the Pistons (sorry Lakers Nation…again) amongst more breaking news like Isiaah Thomas in Beantown Boston and Michael Carter Williams new million Bucks deal. But in a week that started with Dallas acquiring New York’s Amar’e Stoudemire, nothing is as big as this trade ticket.

By the trade deadlines buzzer, final horn the Minnesota Timberwolves will be doing more than just talking about Kevin.

OH CANADA Welcome To Your First NBA Finals
We The Champions...

Clever Girl.

Extinct in Six? Like we said in my last article about the ‘Jurassic Park’ crowd of fans outside…NAH! The 6 just took the Eastern Conference Finals and Championship in that many games.

There will be no Game 7.

The Bucks stop here.

They the North are heading to the NBA Finals.

And it’s not only the first time Toronto have done it’s since their 1995 expansion inception into the North American league. It’s the first time Canada will be represented in the NBA Finals for this lands chance to be the first country outside those United States to win an NBA Championship.

And we believe this BasketballBuzz.

Even against the dynasty Goliath of Kevin Durant, Steph Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green’s Warriors. Cinderella stories are always better to the glass slipper. Get ready for this Raptor to roar.

Welcome to Jurassic World!

Greek warrior heart Giannis Antetokounmpo had to walk out of his postgame presser because of this epic emotion. Kawhi Leonard even bigger than his been around the world and I, I, back to Canada rim rattling series beater against the Sixers, made an even bigger play for MVP of this whole country. Let alone the season, even if the NBA end up giving it to James Harden now when they should really spell it out for the alphabet. Everyone watched Kyle Lowry as he glowed tears of joy with his kid wrapped in his arms. His hand across his mouth face above says it all. Jeremy Lin couldn’t believe the Linsanity. And Drake’s plans seemed forever placed on the blazer shoulders of Coach Nick Nurse (or the Bucks Bud in hilarious meme trolling) who nursed Canada to their first NBA Finals as center Marc Gasol beating his injured brothers team (a Spanish showdown we wish we could have seen) gave it up for his former Memphis teammates on Twitter, taking them with him to the Finals as the grit and grind of the Grizzlies account responded in timeline kind.

In 2016 after their 20 year anniversary in the association, Toronto held the first NBA All Star Game in a league of its own. Two decades after being the only National Basketball Association franchise in Canada after those Grizzly bears of Vancouver (bring their franchise back) led by Marc’s big brother Pau Gasol made that Blue Suede Shoe Elvis move to Memphis. Twenty plus years later and now the King of Canada. Two decades since those Barney purple dino jerseys went from a laughing one to Mitchell and Ness hardwood classic throwback, out of stock. Twenty plus years since country cousins Tracy McGrady and the Air Canada of Vince Carter threw the legs and straight in the honey pot started something way above the rim. Two decades since Chris Bosh almost led the most completely fun and love to run team in the league at that time aside from Steve Nash’s Phoenix Suns, missing only their countryman making a point (how good would that have been? Almost as good as getting Carter back next season for one last dance and dunk. Make it happen Basketball God’s of the 6). Twenty plus years since Drake started rapping from the bottom of his basement.

And almost 25 years and seasons, 82 games, three rounds, six games, four quarters and an 100-94 win behind a double, 27 and 17 double from their leader Kawhi Leonard later and we’re here. Just like we hope our number 2, number one will always be.

Check out the views from Yonge Street on fire with fans celebrating peacefully and beautifully. Nothing was the same. And nothing ever will be again.

This is for them. Us. You. Me. Him. Her. The whole city. The entire country and the watching world that call themselves the North. 6 before Game 7 with that many left to try and Dub themselves Canadian champions over a whole dynasty heading for a parade across the Golden State of the Golden Gate Bridge to San Francisco. This is for the Bucks too and their champion leader Giannis. Afforded as more than a worthy opponent but their own legendary legacy of the future. This is for a young man who at 21 years old moved to Toronto to start a Basketball writing dream. That man is me. But more than that. This is for the pride of Angola, Edilson Silva who had a vision to start Canada’s first Basketball magazine. This is for every fan in Toronto, Canada and the North that will always be theirs.

Now read all about it, the Toronto Raptors and Canada are heading to the NBA Finals.

Next stop beat the Bay.

The North will find a way.

T.O. Canada this is your time.

Make history like no NBA team before you.
