Atlantic Division five teams in the last five seasons of the city version of the jersey
Each team in the NBA has its own city version of the jersey, the NBA is also very concerned about their city version of the NBA jersey in recent years, because it represents their essence, so the team is also very attentive to these designs. Therefore, the American media listed the last five years of the Atlantic Division city jerseys, which is the best-looking?
The New York Knicks’ City Edition jersey has four seasons in the black series, starting with the 2017-2018 season’s City Edition jersey in navy blue (a deep blue in the eyes of many), with little change in the 2018-2019 and 2019-2020 seasons. 2023-2023 season is similar to the 2019-2020 season, with changes to The 2023-2023 season is similar to the 2019-2020 season, with a few changes to the sides and shades. The 2020-2023 season is a bit more special, and this season is also very bright.
The Celtics’ City Edition jerseys always come with a touch of green, it’s just that this green doesn’t make the fan network freak out. There are three seasons that are simple white with green, while the 2018-2019 City Edition jerseys are green dominated by gold. the 2023-2023 City Edition jerseys are perhaps the best looking City Edition jerseys for the Celtics, because the green is natural. I don’t know if you think Kyrie Irving looks good in the 2017-2018 season’s Celtic City Edition jersey.
The 76ers’ city edition jerseys have changed quite a bit in the last five seasons. The most special one is still the City Edition jerseys for the 2018-2019 season, as the stars circled over the 7 in the 76ers logo are the players’ jersey numbers. But in terms of looking good, it’s probably the City Edition jerseys for the 2023-2023 season, because their colors are similar to those of the Brooklyn Nets’ City Edition jerseys, and they feature a bit of the Denver Nuggets jerseys on the sides.
The Nets’ City Edition jerseys are predominantly black for three seasons. The city edition jerseys for the 2019-2020 season are predominantly white, and the city edition jerseys for the 2023-2023 season are predominantly navy blue (and what many people see as dark blue almost). The best-looking should be the 2019-2020 season and 2023-2023 season’s city edition jerseys, the color is more special and looks much better.
The Raptors’ city edition jerseys have four models all in black with gold, and only the 2018-2019 season when Leonard played for the Raptors, the team’s city edition jerseys are more special are white with gold. But the best looking should be the City Edition jerseys for the 2023-2023 season, as they are paired with the classic Raptors dribble pattern, highlighting the Raptors.
Why don’t the Timberwolves retire Garnett’s #21 jersey?
The Celtics retired Garnett’s No. 5 NBA jersey, when will the Timberwolves retire his No. 21 jersey?
In fact, not the Timberwolves do not retire, is Garnett himself is not happy to retire, because he and the Timberwolves owner Glenn Taylor contradictions (in fact, Taylor is no longer considered the Timberwolves boss, but need a two-year transition period to all handover, and for the convenience of the line, the following temporary still to the boss called).
After Garnett’s retirement in 2016, the Timberwolves did mention it, but needed to seek Garnett’s own consent, and Garnett gave the response, “It’s not sincere, Taylor was just forced to do it because of the tremendous pressure from the fans.” So there was no refund. The matter just kept dragging on. But and the Celtics happily set the date to retire his No. 5 jersey early on.
So, Garnett is advanced Hall of Fame, after retiring the jersey, not much.
The conflict between him and Taylor, apart from the well-known incident of the failed acquisition of the team, in fact, there is a long-standing feud between the two.
Taylor spent $88 million to buy the Timberwolves in 1994. The Timberwolves were an emerging team that joined the NBA only in the 1989-90 season, and at the beginning of the team’s construction, they could not feel the way to win at all, and they were always at the bottom of the record list, and they were the brisket of the brisket, from 1990 to 1995, their worst record was 15 wins and 67 losses, and their best record was only 29 wins and 53 losses. In short, the hope of entering the playoffs was far away.
Garnett, who wore the No. 21 uniform, came off the bench for a few games in his rookie season and began to rise to the top when the original boss, Leitner, left the team and was named to the rookie second-team. Although the team’s record of 26 wins and 56 losses is not ideal, but at least ended the team’s embarrassing record of four consecutive losing seasons of at least 60 games, and everyone saw the light of redemption from Garnett.
The next year, the team picked Marbury, and high school friends Garnett to form a twin, the two young people emerged from the team immediately out of the mire of struggle for many years, with 40 wins and 42 losses to an unprecedented record to kill the playoffs, but unfortunately the first round was swept by the Rockets, but enough to make Garnett in the next negotiations to have enough confidence and leverage.
In October 1997, Garnett started a dialogue with the team about a contract extension.
Garnett’s agent was very strong, ate Taylor’s mind, bullying “favor” to act fiercely, because Garnett is already Minnesota’s new favorite, the lion asked for 6 years 135 million dollars, Taylor could not accept, the two sides tug of war, tug of war.
The contract system and collective bargaining agreement were not perfect at the time, and players were signing chaotic contracts. before 1991, the top NBA players were paid just over two million a year, for example, Jordan 2.5 million, Magic 2.4 million and David Robinson 2.27 million. Then the TV contract came into effect and the public outcry when 1991 first-round pick Larry Johnson signed a big 12-year, $110 million contract without playing a single game.
The stars demanded a salary increase, so the next thing that happened was a variety of bizarre huge contract signings, such as 93 first-round pick Webber’s 15-year, $74 million, 94 first-round pick Big Dog Robinson’s 10-year, $68 million, and 94 top pick Kidd’s 9-year, $60 million. The intolerant owners of the 1995 All-Star period to amend the collective bargaining agreement, the provisions of the rookie players to enter the league after the amount of salary determined by the draft order, the first-round picks to sign a 2 +1 contract, two years before you can sign a large contract. But this trick to cure the symptoms, salaries still skyrocketed, the summer of 1996 and 1997, the signing of large contracts of astronomical prices are still frequent, such as Juwan Howard 7 years 105 million, Mourning 7 years 110 million, O’Neal 7 years 121 million, Kemp 7 years 107 million. Garnett is exactly riding this shareholder wind with the boss to ask for a high price.
Taylor is also by no means a light, he is from a young printing factory owner to a state legislator and Forbes list of guests enough to see its wrist hard, but he really can not resist Garnett agent blackmail, the price cut to 6 years 126 million, Garnett agreed to sign.
But in this negotiation aggrieved Taylor then disclosed the details of the signing to the media, trying to portray Garnett as a selfish image, trying to “sanction” Garnett with the power of public opinion.
Garnett’s astronomical contract this to the NBA bosses scared, the future under the hands of the stars to this set, then it is still? It is simply not decent? There is no decency, so let’s make a decency.
In 1998, before the rookie contract of the class of 1996 expired in the summer, 29 owners and the players union on the labor agreement “friendly” negotiations, the result, as you know, a 7-month lockout, resulting in a reduced season; rookie contract and redo the strict norms, the main idea is: the player’s maximum salary is determined by the length of service, just play two years of rookie Only can take 6 years 70.9 million dollars of the top salary. This includes the 96 golden generation of Marbury
In the 1997-1998 season, Marbury and Garnett teamed up to make the playoffs again, but were eliminated in the first round by the Seattle Supersonics (the predecessor of the Oklahoma City Thunder), 3-2.
In the summer of 1998, Marbury signed a six-year, $70.9 million deal with the Timberwolves, but by mid-season, he personally approached the owner seeking a trade, and Tyler made it happen, trading him to his hometown New Jersey Nets.
As for the reason for leaving, the rumor is that Mabry is dissatisfied with the salary, because of jealousy Garnett, turned against him, but Mabry early on this is tight-lipped, but later in the program interview could not resist the truth, the reason is: one, Minnesota is too cold. Two, Minnesota black less white more. Three, disappointed with two consecutive years of round trips.
Whether or not Mabry is not sincere or hiding the truth, the world is willing to believe that his departure is definitely not that simple, because an untamed lone wolf does not want to be the second behind others and determined to leave without looking back, such a story is too in line with the tone of Hollywood heroic narrative.
In short, once Mabry left, Garnett lost his best helper in the Timberwolves, after the team lineup left like a carp, but few of them can really assist Garnett to achieve great things.
Garnett, who has grown to be the absolute core of the team and has a voice, has a lot to say about the operation of Tyler’s first class management, but his large contract occupies the space, largely making the team lose the flexibility to operate.
Until the 2003-04 season, Garnett ushered in the peak, won the regular season MVP, and Sprewell, Cassell formed a three-headed monster, all the way through the Nuggets and Kings, the unprecedented Western Conference, Garnett’s personal reputation and honor have reached the peak, but the Western Conference was a failure, 2-4 defeat to the Lakers with F4.
Garnett got a championship in the Celtics, and played a few seasons in the Nets, round and round, has returned to the Timberwolves mentor Sanders a phone call and called him back, Taylor held a welcome attitude.
Garnett has made a name for himself and is in his twilight years. What could be more poetic and warm than returning to the place where his dream began at the end of his career? This is one reason why he went back, the other reason is that Sanders gave Garnett a promise of interest in that phone call, saying that Garnett would be allowed to enter management and get shares in the team after retirement. Garnett returned gladly.
But the world is unpredictable, in 2015, the old marshal Sanders died of illness, this side of Garnett sitting in the garage gloomy, that side of Taylor changed his mind, after all, the verbal agreement on the phone is too non-binding, especially Taylor a businessman, profit light businessman, the night pillow on the eye grunt a turn, so a weighing, a turn over work are not needed, is to turn the hand for the cloud The thing that overturned the hand for the rain, the interest field is not surprising.
After retirement, Garnett in his new book still on the matter is difficult to be satisfied, he said meritorious players deserve to get 20% of the shares.
Then later, that is, in recent years, Taylor has the intention to sell the team, Garnett heard the news, long-sleeved, formed a consortium with 1.2 billion in financial strength, but Taylor does not sell this generation of legendary Hall of Fame players, because he a Minnesota native very opposed to Garnett to take the Timberwolves out of Minnesota conditions, so Garnett’s plan expectedly fell through, the two also went to court for this.
In 2023, after learning that Taylor had sold the team to e-commerce giant Mark Lowe and retired baseball star Alex Rodriguez for $1.5 billion, Garnett was furious.
So the relationship between Garnett and Taylor has dropped to the freezing point, and the retirement of Garnett’s No. 21 jersey has been delayed.
In the future, Garnett’s No. 21 jersey will be retired under what kind of opportunity, and whether he and Taylor can laugh off their grudge, and will become a new topic of concern.
Celtics retired Garnett No. 5 jersey, the 3 giants hugged together
On March 13, 2020, the Celtics held a retirement ceremony for the number 5 jersey of Green Army great Kevin Garnett. Garnett was in tears, and hugged Ray Allen and Pierce tightly, and met each other to forget their grudges.
After the retirement ceremony began, Garnett’s close friend Paul Pierce gave a speech, expressing his gratitude to Garnett on behalf of all the fans and himself for bringing back the glory of the Green Army.
Celtics owner Wyc said “thank you” to Garnett three times in a row and used five words to describe KG: “dedication, commitment, loyalty, leadership and championship.”
Garnett then gave a speech in which he excitedly said, “I love my team, and it’s been an amazing journey. If we (Green Army Big Three Garnett, Pierce and Ray Allen) had all been able to stay healthy that year, we could have won a few more championship rings.”
Kevin Garnett then called out directly to Ray Allen, who was sitting on the sidelines: “It’s great to see Ray Allen here. It’s really good to see you. You’re next (for jersey retirement).”
And Ray Allen on the stage first responded by making a fist with both hands, and then got up directly to the stage.
Ray Allen and Garnett hugged each other tightly, and the years of grudges have been completely dissolved at this moment.
Interestingly, Pierce is not willing to sit down offstage lonely, also rushed up, Garnett, Pierce, Ray Allen three people for a big hug. The whole audience stood up and applauded for the former Green Army trio, as in the old days of greatness.
Garnett and Ray Allen had tears in their eyes, while Pierce laughed heartlessly.
In the 2007-08 season, Pierce, Garnett and Ray Allen formed the Boston Big Three and won the NBA championship that season.
The three brothers again in the same frame, making people teary-eyed!
Together with Garnett, the Celtics retired a total of 23 jerseys. Because the Green team’s history is so illustrious, the retired jerseys were presented in the form of eight jersey numbers spelling a flag.
Finally, number 5 joined the many legendary Celtics numbers that rose to the ceiling of TD Garden, and the Celtics officially retired Garnett’s jersey!
When Garnett personally raised his No. 5 jersey, the tears of excitement flowed down the river, and at this moment, all the emotions converged into a river.
In this regard, netizens have said, “honestly, Garnett worth the Green Army retired jerseys, the Wolves will also retire 21 sooner or later” “compared to Garnett’s jersey retirement, more moving is his hug with Pierce, Ray Allen, how many years, finally released “”The Celtics have to develop three-digit jerseys”” “The Big Three in 07-08, is the real iron-blooded Big Three, is the sacrifice and toughness to achieve that year’s championship”” kg is my first favorite ball player! Really just later LeBron’s crossover 08 Olympic like LeBron is too violent aesthetics!” “That’s what it’s like, no Aaron, you guys can win the championship. Ha ha” “my youth gone, but seems to have returned” “I knew it was this result, as long as Ray Allen under a small, Garnett and Pierce are temperamental people, this can be over the over, after all try to mention less, tribute “”That said, if Ray Allen went to the Heat did not win the championship, to ensure that Garnett will not be so angry”” “Injustice is not when, sooner or later is not engaged in a table”.
Ray Allen in Legal Trouble After Attending Kevin Garnett’s Celtics Jersey Retirement Ceremony
No one is above the law. Not even if you’re Boston Celtics icon and two-time NBA champion Ray Allen.
The 46-year-old Hall of Famer had to learn that the hard way after Allen was reportedly reprimanded and fined by a U.S. District Judge for failing to perform his duties as a court-appointed juror. Apparently, Allen was unable to fulfill his legal duties because he took the time to fly to Boston for Kevin Garnett’s recent New Jersey retirement ceremony with the Celtics.
Jay Weaver of the Miami Herald provides details of Allen’s recent run-in with the law.
The judge politely granted Allen’s request to postpone the hearing, which in itself is unusual enough. However, Allen was still unable to attend the hearing, which was held two days after the KG jersey ceremony. The reason Allen ultimately waived jury duty is unclear, but his attorney did apologize on behalf of his client, saying, “It was a complete misunderstanding.”
On Wednesday, Allen appeared at the hearing, where the judge condemned the former 10-time All-Star for his negligence. Allen was also ordered to pay a $1,000 fine for his actions, which will be donated to a charity of his choice.
That’s why Ray Allen wanted to attend KG’s jersey retirement ceremony. He skipped his civic duty just to show his support for his former Celtics teammate. I think this should finally put an end to the bickering between two of the greatest players in Boston history.
The Celtics retired Kevin Garnett jersey, the big three as agreed to arrive.
Time can witness the greatness of a player, can also let the past with the wind, unknowingly Garnett also left the fans vision for many years. Today’s Celtics retired Garnett No. 5 NBA jersey, which also reminds us of their own once that youthful years.
Before James Garnett should be the most versatile hexagonal warrior, can defend can attack, have a pass will curl, can break will shoot, almost from the first position to play five men.
Although he didn’t make it to the Timberwolves, he returned to his roots and ended his career from the place where his dream began, which is a perfect ending to his basketball career.
The Celtics are not his home team, but he accomplished the dream that all players want to accomplish here and wore that championship ring as he wished. Garnett’s time with the Celtics was filled with happiness, troubles, and a few grudges.
In today’s retirement ceremony, the Celtics Big Threes gathered together, they embraced each other, perhaps this moment they seem to return to the finals field in 08. The Celtics are a great place to start, but they are also a part of our youth.
Celtics retired the No. 5 jersey, the brothers laughed off their enmity and enmity

Then Garnett’s home team is the Timberwolves, he spent a lot of happy days in the Timberwolves, also led the Timberwolves into the Western Conference finals, except that the Lakers were too strong, but that Timberwolves under the leadership of Sanders is also very good, since then the Timberwolves began to rebuild and Garnett in order to join the championship Pierce’s eastern powerhouse Celtics, and then the Green Army and from the then Seattle The team also gave up the future to gamble on the present in order to form this Big Three, when Jeff Green and other rookies were also the protagonists of the deal, and the Celtics only left Rondo and Perkins, and so began the road to the championship, when they also went all the way through the finals to take down the Lakers finally dreamed of winning the championship, the three Giants successfully got their own championship!
After that the Celtics are also multiplying in the Big Three around continue to strengthen the role players, the team is also once again won the championship, it can be said that the league has a lot of Big Three and the Green Army’s Big Three is the earliest is the most successful, but also some people say that the Heat’s Big Three is successful, yes James, Bosh, Wade’s Big Three is also excellent, but do not forget that they can succeed in the key must be said to one person that is Ray Allen This is exactly what Ray Allen left the Green Army to join the Heat so that Garnett felt that he betrayed himself, but also betrayed the Green Army, so that their relationship broke!

March 7 — A NBA jersey worn by U.S. basketball star Kobe Bryant during his lifetime was sold at auction for $277,200 on March 6. Kobe had worn the jersey to warm up before a game, which was the highest scoring game of his career.

#23 Jersey of old James may become the retired jersey in the Lakers
On March 15, Garnett’s No. 5 jersey was officially retired at the Celtics. And Garnett of the Green Army, and James of the Lakers almost equal, so does this mean that James in the Lakers retired jersey is also basically stable?
There are similarities between Garnett for the Green Army and James for the Lakers. Before Garnett arrived, the Celtics were in a dark period of team history and had not won a title for 21 consecutive years. After Garnett joined the team, he led the Green Army to 2 finals, winning the title in 2008, and was elected the best defensive player, filling a gap in the Green Army’s history of honors. In 6 seasons with the Green Army, Garnett was selected as an All-Star 5 times, and was named to the best team once and the best defensive team 4 times.
Before James arrived, the Lakers were also in a dark period in team history. James joined the team and led the Lakers to the championship in 2020 after a 10-year absence and was elected MVP of the finals.
So, if Garnett can retire his NBA jersey with the Green Army, then James should be able to do the same. It is thanks to the two of them that the Greens and Lakers have been able to break out of their long slump and get back on the road to championship contention. This is the greatest feat of the duo in their respective teams.
