Kevin Garnett calls return to Minnesota “fairytale”

Kevin Garnett is back where it all started.

For the first decade of his career, when KG established himself as one of the best players in the game, he was carrying the franchise as far as one man could. He eventually left and picked up his ring as a member of the Celtics; then he moved on to Brooklyn.

Now Garnett is back in Minnesota — the Nets bought out his contract, and he re-signed — and at his press conference he called it a fairytale ending. And he said he wants to mentor this young team (the question is for how long, and in what role).
