Publisher's Summary

National Best Seller

A unique, unfiltered memoir from the NBA champion and 15-time all-star ahead of his induction into the Hall of Fame.

Kevin Garnett was one of the most dominant players the game of basketball has ever seen. He was also one of its most outspoken. Over the course of his illustrious 21-year NBA career, he elevated trash talk to an art form and never shied away from sharing his thoughts on controversial subjects. 

In KG: A to Z, published ahead of Garnett’s induction into the Basketball Hall of Fame, he looks back on his life and career with the same raw candor. Garnett describes the adversity he faced growing up in South Carolina before ultimately relocating to Chicago, where he became one of the top prospects in the nation. He details his headline-making decision to skip college and become the first player in two decades to enter the draft directly from high school, starting a trend that would be followed by future superstars like Kobe Bryant and LeBron James. He shares stories of playing with and against Bryant, James, Michael Jordan, and other NBA greats, and he chronicles his professional ups and downs, including winning a championship with the Boston Celtics. He also speaks his mind on a range of topics beyond basketball, such as fame, family, racism, spirituality, and music.

Garnett’s draft decision wasn’t the only way he’d forever change the game. His ability to play on the perimeter as a big man foreshadowed the winning strategy now universally adopted by the league. He applies this same innovative spirit here, organizing the contents alphabetically as an encyclopedia. If you thought Kevin Garnett was exciting, inspiring, and unfiltered on the court, just wait until you hear what he has to say in this audiobook.

GOAT

Great listen as expected. Like so many other kids in the world growing up MJ was my favorite player. KG is by far my all time favorite player. NOBODY will ever match his drive, intensity and love for the game. Most definitely one of the 🐐 of all time in my eyes. 🙌🏻💪🏻☘️#ANYTHINGISPOSSIBLEEEE

Great Book But missed opportunity

Great book but I REALLY wanted to hear KG narrate this book. he's such a great story teller that this could have been one of the best audio books ever. the narrator wasn't bad but I bought this book to hear KG tell his story.

Good but could have used more personal depth

I thought this book was great in talking about Mr. Garnett's passion. This was also a great book for basketball stories and details. There were not a lot of details on his personal life. There was virtually no mention of his wife and kids or any other aspects of his personal life once he became an adult beyond some personal tragedy. If you are a big basketball fan, you will love this book. If you are wanting to dive into Mr. Garnett's personal live since the book is titled "Everything A-Z" then you should skip it.

Brilliant book

Loved the story of his life and found it insightful so much so I wonder if they will make this into a film...his life is rich in feeling, experiences and achievement. It’s nice to hear his take on life which is unapologetic and blunt and all in all refreshing to hear this is a very easy read/listen. I highly recommend and it did not disappoint.
