Kevin Garnett's larger-than-life presence was felt in the Boston Celtics locker room on an eventful Sunday at TD Garden.

"The Big Ticket" went out his way to greet every C's player ahead of their matchup vs. the Dallas Mavericks. You can watch KG's interactions with Marcus Smart, Jayson Tatum, and the rest of the team in the video below.

Garnett was in attendance to celebrate the Celtics retiring his No. 5 jersey, but he also enjoyed the competitive C's-Mavs showdown courtside. KG shared an iconic moment with Jaylen Brown after the Celtics wing threw down an emphatic dunk in the first half.

The Celtics will lift Garnett's jersey into the rafters shortly after Sunday's game at approximately 6 p.m. ET. You can watch the ceremony on NBC Sports Boston, or stream it in the MyTeams App.
