Garnett: A leader by the way he is

I was going back through some of my files yesterday and came across a September 2007 Boston Globe article about Kevin Garnett, who was attending a pro camp in Las Vegas with 20 other NBA players.

According to the article, Garnett was always the first player to arrive each day, getting there an hour before the rest of the group, which goes through 90 minutes of weight training, followed by 90 minutes of drills and scrimmaging.

Said Garnett:  "I like my footprints to be first in the sand."

Joe Abunassar, who runs the camp, said this about Garnett:  "He's so focused about getting ready.  He's a leader by the way he is."
