The Celtics will retire Kevin Garnett's No. 5 next season

BOoston – Kevin Garnett has made a big impact on the Boston Celtics during his six year stay with the franchise.

He helped turn one of the worst teams in the tournament into a 2007-08 NBA champion, the Defender of the Year and set up the All-Star team five times. For everything Garnett has done, the franchise will honor him specifically in the 2020-21 season.

Garnett No. 5 will be lifted to the raft at TD Garden, taking place in an empty square next to teammate Paul Pierce.

The Celts made the announcement in a unique way during the first quarter of the match on Thursday night against the Los Angeles Clippers at TD Garden.

They did so through a tribute to Garnett displayed on the video board in the meantime. The video ends with the message that No. 5 will retire and the crowd breaks out.
