“The Big Ticket” will no longer grace the NBA court as a player, but he’s quickly found a new niche around the league.
Kevin Garnett is set to take his “trash talking” talent to new heights, as he is set to join Ernie Johnson and the rowdy crew of retired NBA stars Charles Barkley, Shaquille O’Neal and Kenny Smith as an analyst for NBA on TNT.
“It’s here,” the ex-Minesota Timberwolves forward said in a 30-second promo on Twitter. “This is my next chapter. The NBA on TNT has a special spot just for me. They’re giving me my own space.”
The one-time NBA champion, who’s best known as an overly intense competitor, also promises viewers that he’ll keep it “100 percent real.”
Garnett’s cut-throat honesty will fit in nicely with the current TNT quartet, who aren’t exactly known to hold back on their opinions regarding today’s game.
Aside from his new gig, the 40-year-old legend is also reportedly talking to both the Cleveland Cavaliers and Milwaukee Bucks about a possible “coaching consultant” position. Khristian Ibarrola
It is possible Garnett could accept jobs with more than one team, making periodic stops into town to work with players, league sources say.
