Numbers get you into the Hall of Fame.
It doesn't matter how many hours you practiced, or weights you lifted. It's numbers. Points, rebounds, steals, blocks, wins, titles.
But numbers are only part of Kevin Garnett's overall impact on the game.
Ric Bucher weighs in on KG's career and shares what he believes is Garnett's lasting legacy.
"He was the ultimate Swiss Army knife," says Bucher.
Garnett's versatility allows him to impact multiple facets of the game.
Bucher says Garnett's versatility, work ethic and willingness to do what needed to be done is why he fit in with Ray Allen and Paul Pierce and ultimately led the Celtics to a title.
"He set a work ethic," says Bucher. "He set an approach that did wonders for Paul Pierce... You can see the impact he's had on Rajon Rondo and any number of young players. That is the ultimate legacy of Kevin Garnett."
Whenever Garnett decides to call it career, he will have an impressive stat line that will inevitably have the Hall of Fame calling. But those numbers don't tell the whole story.
