After a high school basketball career at Farragut Career Academy which included winning a national player of the year award, Kevin Garnett skipped college and entered the NBA Draft. He was selected with the fifth overall pick in the 1995 NBA Draft by the Minnesota Timberwolves and became the first NBA player drafted directly out of high school in 20 years. Garnett made an immediate impact with the Minnesota Timberwolves leading them to eight consecutive playoff appearances. In 2004, Garnett led the Timberwolves to the Western Conference Finals and was voted Most Valuable Player in the 2003–04 season. In the 2000 Summer Olympics, he won a gold medal as a member of the USA men's national basketball team. Since his second season in the league, Garnett has been named to every All-Star Game, which includes winning the All-Star MVP award in 2003. He was awarded the regular season's NBA Defensive Player of the Year in the 2007–08 season and has been a nine-time member of the All-NBA Teams selection and a ten-time member of the All-Defensive Teams selection. After spending twelve seasons with the Minnesota Timberwolves, Garnett went to the Boston Celtics in a blockbuster trade. In his first year with the Celtics, he helped them win their first NBA championship since 1986 and the Celtics' seventeenth title. This jersey dates back to his high school days at Farragut Academy. In the inside back neck is the "TEAMWORK ATHLETIC APPAREL" manufacturer's tag with the size “XXL” tag below. Across the front is "ADMIRALS" in navy blue on yellow screen print. Below and on the back is the player number "34" in navy blue screen print. The jersey shows light game-use and appears to have no alterations of any kind. Accompanied by a LOA from his High School Assistant Coach and an additional LOA.
