2016 has been a big summer for retirements in the NBA.
Kobe Bryant's departure was the biggest story of the L.A. Lakers' season as he bowed out with a 60-point game against the Utah Jazz.
Tim Duncan said goodbye without so much as a press conference as he called time on a 19-year career via email.
Now Kevin Garnett has said goodbye to the NBA after he and the Minnesota Timberwolves came to an agreement over the remainder of his contract with the franchise he served for 13 seasons.
The trio, who amassed a combined total of 48 All-Star games, 11 championships and four MVP awards, will be sorely missed.
Garnett really was a player who changed the game and the influx of messages from his NBA counterparts just shows the impact he had on the game with his hard work and dedication.
After playing in 15 All-Star games, winning one title and an MVP award, Garnett is a sure-fire first-ballot Hall of Famer and will go down as one of the best ever.
The Timberwolves are in good hands with Karl-Anthony Towns, but his influence and standing within the organisation will never be forgotten by the fans.
