Kevin Garnett was a singular athlete in NBA history; he was also Pandora’s box.
Bosh refracted Garnett’s influence in the same way revolutions mellow into institutions.
Now, our KG comparisons are no longer so explicit. It’s implied; it just is.

Beautifully said. i’m glad that his influence will still be felt. The comparisons to KG ruined my expectations for DMiles; i expected Darius to be KG! when he wasn’t, i labeled him a bum (which, he actually kinda was). The same thing happened with Ndudi Ebi (!), after which, i decided if Durant wasn’t the real thing, then no one was. If KP can break the system like KD & KG…
