Garnett said he’s enjoying doing Area 21, but doesn’t know what his future holds. He’s pursuing various business ventures and said he’d love to go into ownership or management at some point, including with the Minnesota Timberwolves, where he spent the majority of his Hall Of Fame career, with one caveat: He wouldn’t want to do it with the current ownership group. “I don’t want to be partners with Glen [Taylor], and I wouldn’t want to be partners with Glen in Minnesota,” he said. “I would love to be part of a group that buys him out and kind of removes him and go forward.”

Garnett wanted Area 21 to showcase his true character and authenticity, which takes many former athletes who dive into TV careers after retirement a long time to accomplish. “I wanted to be able to have something that not only reflects me, but is me,” he said. “I’m not an actor, or none of that. I don’t have any TV super experience, but for the most part of being in front of the camera and having a presence, all that is [about] who you are.”
Kevin Garnett came at LaVar Ball with some heat during Thursday’s edition of “Area 21” on TNT. In discussing Lonzo Ball’s development, the NBA champion and surefire Basketball Hall of Famer advised the Big Baller Brand CEO to step aside and allow the Los Angeles Lakers to handle it from here on out. “I think parents are good to be parents: support, be a support system,” KG said. “When it come to this league stuff, leave it to the professionals.”
Adrian Wojnarowski: The NBPA sent out a memo to players that ASM Sports president Andy Miller has “relinquished his NBPA agent certification.” He was representing Kristaps Porzingis and Kyle Lowry, among dozens of others. He also represented Chauncey Billups and Kevin Garnett in past.
Storyline: Agent Changes
Agents sponsoring grassroots teams eventually became commonplace, but Miller was considered an innovator. After luring Garnett and landing Telfair in 2004 and Monta Ellis in 2005, other agents started pouring into the grassroots scene. “Everyone was looking for the next Kobe,” St. Joseph’s Coach Phil Martelli said of the agents. “And it polluted the game.” Throughout the 2000s, agent involvement in the grassroots scene morphed into a full-blown trend, as backroom deals led to college and agent recruiting pipelines and runners began ingratiating themselves with the families of prospects during their freshman and sophomore years of high school. “There is agent involvement even before we make the first recruiting call, in the spring of 10th grade,” said Notre Dame coach Mike Brey. “They’re there. They’re involved. They’ve identified the top prospects before we have. I’ve had runners call or text me saying, ‘Have you seen this ninth grader in Chicago?’ ”
