KG Voted As Second-Best Teammate In NBA

It was announced earlier in June that Wolves veteran forward Kevin Garnett had been voted the second-best teammate in the NBA by the players.

Memphis wing Vince Carter took first with 1,448 points. Garnett had 916 points.

Garnett played in just 38 games last season, but players like Karl-Anthony Towns, Gorgui Dieng and Zach LaVine were very vocal about how much Garnett had helped them on and off the court. When the late Flip Saunders traded for Garnett in 2015, Saunders was trading for Garnett's leadership, hoping some of it would rub off on the young Wolves. 

Local media members and fans already knew that was very much the case, but with the results of the voting for the Twyman-Stokes Teammate Award, it looks like the rest of the league has taken notice as well.

The voting results can be seen below:
