As a plethora of tributes and well-wishes poured in for the retiring Kevin Garnett on Friday, it was only a matter of time before Kobe Bryant chimed in.
On Saturday, the Black Mamba posted the following tweet in honor of a man he spent two decades competing against in the NBA.
I loved every minute I competed against you. A true warrior #ticket #KG

Bryant and Garnett combined for nearly 60,000 points and 100,000 minutes played. They’ll almost surely headline the 2021 Basketball Hall of Fame class along with Tim Duncan.
