NBA Mom I Love: Shirley Garnett
I love Kevin Garnett's mom! When KG got his MVP trophy during the playoffs last year, she was standing there clapping and wiping away tears. Even without a huge "I'M KG'S MOM!" sign, anyone watching could easily have picked her out of the crowd of 20,000. She was the proudest woman in the room that night and it was really really sweet. And then there was the classic Beyond the Glory episode. When she found out KG was playing ball behind her back instead of studying, she marched down to the gym and mouthed "I'm gonna kick yo' ass." Awesome.
