Kevin Garnett will officially live in Boston Celtics lore for time immemorial after next season when the storied franchise is set to retire Garnett's No. 5 jersey.

"I'm honoured and thankful to have my number retired with the Celtics", Garnett said in a press release. "I will always have huge respect and appreciation for ownership, Danny Ainge, Doc Rivers, my past teammates and Celtic Nation!" said Garnett in a statement.

In five of the six seasons he played with Boston, Garnett was named an all-star and earned four All-Defensive team awards during that span as well.

Garnett will be the 23rd Celtics player to have his number retired, in addition to honors without number designations for former forward Jim Loscutoff and former radio announcer Johnny Most.

"Kevin gave everything he had to the Celtics in every practice, in every game, and his unique blend of energy, intelligence, and talent brought out the best in his teammates and coaches", Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge said in a statement. Garnett averaged 15.7 points, 8.3 rebounds, 2.7 assists, 1.2 steals and 1 block in 30.9 minutes during his Celtics tenure. "That was all Garnett". Minnesota won 58 games that season, eventually losing to the Lakers in the Western Conference Finals.
