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.

K G is one of the great.

This is one of those books you will enjoy. For me not only did I enjoyed it, I fell in love with it. I think K G, did a great job putting it together. Find out a lot about Kevin Garnett. Reading his story, and if you know anything about K G, his book make you understand how and why he became one of the greatest ever played Basketball.

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.

Amazing

I purchased this because of my love for basketball. However, your historical journey called life was a pleasure to listen to. From one dark brother and product of the 80s, I say great job.

A to Z

A to Z is as real as it’s gets no matter how you put it KG Did what was best for him. So as humble as he was. KG goal was to make it and do it his way. Whatever the cost he was willing to do whatever it’s to make it. Even with a few bumps in road. KG was to Overcome the Opticals and still became King and Champion beyond belief.

How a life lived in change is lived well

I’m a casual NBA fan, and got this book because of my interest in alternative views. Mr. Garnett grew up poor, (in terms of wealth) but what was lacking in the bank account was more than made up for by the wealth of inspiration, perspiration, imagination and determination Ticket showed as a baller, leader and humane human. His story and his insight on the human condition from a young age to today is more than worth the time to any reader who is searching for a spark to light the flame of commitment. Recently, Mr Garnett was honored by the Boston Celtics who retired his jersey number 5. Look up the video of him raising the jersey, a part of the way through he stops overcome with emotion. As he continues to raise his jersey to the rafters, tears are streaming down his face. This tells me that he is a genuine person and a role model for his time. Thank you Mr Garnett.

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.
