Word of mouth matters throughout the NBA, and it didn’t take long for the concept of doing a Chinese shoe deal to gain traction. A year after Wade signed, Rajon Rondo agreed to a six-year deal with Anta, following in the footsteps of teammate Kevin Garnett, who landed with the company in 2010 after his Adidas deal was up. When Golden State Warriors sharpshooter Klay Thompson received an offer from Anta the following summer, his agent at the time, Bill Duffy, suggested he reach out to Rondo, a fellow BDA Sports client, for feedback. “Wait till you go out there,” Rondo told Thompson. “They’ll show you so much love.” “At first, you know, you’re skeptical,” Thompson said. “Then, you come over [to China] and you see it firsthand, how much these people love hoops.”

Why did you think your personality wouldn’t be made for television? Kevin Garnett: I have walls and layers like everyone. When I let you in, when I’m comfortable, it’s a process. But I like to think that, I’m a country boy, so I’m hospitable, and I think I can carry a conversation. But I thought the persona and me being private wouldn’t fit. But it’s worked. I think, when considering the media, and how they want all the bits and insights, I just figured that most people knew the game, and I never looked at giving insight as a way to be a teaching tool for people. For me, the locker room, the camaraderie with the guys, it’s all special. It was all stuff you take to heart; it’s not for sale. I had to look at [all of] it differently and take a new approach to it.
You’ve mentioned on Area 21 that Toronto is your number one distraction city in the NBA. Kevin Garnett: It’s one of them. It’s one of. What about Toronto makes it distracting? Kevin Garnett: What I love about Toronto is that there’s always something new and vibrant going on. A place might close at 2, and tomorrow it will close at 4. It’s a city of a bunch of hole-in-the-walls. There are a bunch of spots that you don’t really know of that’s here and there. I love cities like that, like Madrid is similar, where you can just find spots to eat and lounge. My first time in Toronto was my draft and it was a great experience. I’ve always considered it like home. I spent my own money to come up there to relax. I love Caribana. I always enjoyed that weekend. It’s always been fun. I’ve enjoyed Whistler. I’ve been to Calgary a couple of times. I enjoy Canada. Canada is super chill and I’m a chill guy. I like to chill.
Tyronn Lue said you got so intense watching Making the Band that you headbutted a hole in the wall at his place. Kevin Garnett: I got intense off Making Da Band because it was about Puff putting people in situations to win, and you know what, if you want to sleep again, if you want this bed, well this is the bed, how bad do you want this bed. I understood that. I recognized it. I was able to connect with it. We were all watching it, flipping channels and when we stopped on that shit, I was like oh snap, who is gonna rise to the occasion and earn that bed. They were like, what? I was like, I’m feeling this, it was about not getting stepped on. That’s how sports was. Every year I would come in and tell anybody who was trying to get my spot that they were a dud. Like nah, ain’t nobody taking this spot because I’m willing to die for it. I can’t think of any show that gets me turnt like that now, maybe some National Geographic shit, but no, nothing like that show did.
