The Kevin Garnett celebrity doll portrays him as a basketball player on the Minnesota Timberwolves.  It is the 1998 Edition of NBA Starting Lineup Collection made by Kenner (now Hasbro) and licensed by the NBA .   In the 1997 season he helped bring the Timberwolves to their first playoffs and continued that streak to 8 after the doll was made.   After 12 years with the Timberwolves, he was traded to the Boston Celtics in a record 7 for 1 player deal, where he went on to help the Celtics win the 2008 NBA Championship.  Garnett also won a Gold medal on the USA Basketball Team at the 2000 Sydney Olympics.

The doll is dressed in an official replica 1998 Timberwolves uniform with blue undershorts and white basketball shoes with white socks.  Also included is a basketball that is smaller than the 1/6 scale of the doll.  Typical of Starting-Line up dolls, the legs and arms are bendable,  wrists are jointed, neck moves in all directions, and waist twists.  The ankles are the only joints that are fixed.  The doll is easily posed  into basketball positions.
