IFWT_Kevin Garnett Timberwolves

The Minnesota Timberwolves trade Kevin Garnett to the Boston Celtics in 2007.  It changed everything, making Big 3’s popular and changed the balance of power in the Eastern Conference.  The Celtics won the 2008 title immediately after acquiring Garnett and Ray Allen, and made the Finals again two years later. The Big Three of Garnett, Allen and Paul Pierce was the NBA’s defining superteam until LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh teamed up in Miami in 2010.  But Garnett was almost a Laker.

Kevin Garnett

Kevin Garnett and Dwight Howard got tangled up after a play and it turned ugly with KG headbutting Howard and they two had to be separated by referees and their teammates. Hit the jump for details.

Via Complex Sports:

Kobe Bryant. Kevin Durant. Now, Kevin Garnett. The NBA regular season hasn’t even hit the halfway point and Garnett has become the third player to get into it with Dwight Howard. Nearly midway through the first quarter of tonight’s game between the Houston Rockets and Brooklyn Nets, KG and Howard got tangled up a little bit. It seemed like a harmless foul, but things escalated pretty quickly.

A push by Garnett turned into a retaliation shot by Howard and then things got out of hand. KG sealed his fate for the rest of the night by throwing the ball at DH and delivering a headbutt right to the dome.
