Minnesota forward Kevin Garnett has purchased 1,000 tickets to an upcoming Timberwolves game in a gesture of appreciation to the team's fans, the team announced Sunday.
Beginning at 9 a.m. central time Monday, fans can sign up to claim tickets for that evening's game against the Los Angeles Clippers at a dedicated website. The first 500 fans to register will receive a pair of tickets.
The 19-year NBA veteran played in Minnesota for 12 seasons before being traded to Boston prior to the 2007-08 season.
“The response and support I’ve received from Wolves fans since my return to Minnesota has been nothing short of amazing. It’s been unbelievable,” Garnett said in a statement.
“As a gesture of thanks, I would like to treat some fans to Monday night’s game against the Clippers. Love you all, and thanks for the love. Enjoy the game on me.”
