Who was Kevin Garnett’s mentor?

Brooklyn Nets power forward Kevin Garnett is considered the ultimate teammate and mentor to young players, but everyone’s got to start somewhere. When Garnett was a 19-year-old rookie, he says then-Timberwolves forward Sam Mitchell took him under his wing and taught him how to be an NBA player.

Mitchell went on to coach the Toronto Raptors for four seasons, winning the Coach of the Year Award in 2006-07, later working as an assistant and scout under Avery Johnson with the New Jersey Nets.
