Who will pick on European players smaller than themselves? Or crossing the line with nasty comments? What about illegal screens?

Wasn't a fan of KG but definitely respect his game. Congrats on a great career! Crazy we lost him Kobe and Duncan in the same year.

The Big Ticket, probably my favorite player of all time (along with Barkley). He brought an attitude and persona to the game that was unique. A lot of people took great offense to his attitude, and I'd bet these are people that never played extremely competitive basketball in their lives. Even the guys he got into it with were able to later dismiss the situation as nothing more than a legend getting into their heads.

He wasn't all talk. He was full of talent and paired that talent with strong work ethics. High BBIQ when he was drafted out of high school which flourished and enabled him to become an NBA champion.

KG will be missed by those who truly appreciate the game.

Damn all the guys from the late 90's-early 00's are retiring. Can't believe how time flies

He's always going to have a place on my all time team, even if he doesn't start. In fact the extra chip on his shoulder from coming off the bench should make him play even better for my mythical team.

Still can't believe he didn't win the MVP in '07, just look at the C's defensive stats before him (including guys coming from other teams). Look at how awful/limited Perkins was w/o KG. Travesty.

He proved everyone wrong. When he got a 15 on ACT people were like he will be out of the league in no time. Dude was the highest paid guy for years and played virtually 20 years.

You could very well add Bosh into the 2016 list. It is looking more and more possible.

I think some playoff team can use his services. He can still play but if he does hang it up then it will be sad day for the NBA.

His game fits with any era. The 80's hard fouls era would of been the best time for KG to have played. He would of out bad the bad boys them self. He could step out and guard Dirk very effectively or play inside against the dream and not need to double. That first year in Boston KG could do it all on defense. One of the best anchors we seen if not the best that year.

You found a way to overrate that skinny guy who needed centers to defend the Bigs for him

To be fair, that was probably the most stacked year for that award.
