KG Nears 9000 Rebound MarkIt would take a monster effort on the boards today, but Kevin Garnett is in range of a significant milestone. He needs 19 rebounds to reach the 9,000 mark for his career.
Once he does that he will become the 41st player in NBA history to reach 9,000, and he would be the sixth to have at least 16,000 points, 9,000 rebounds and 3,500 assists. Garnett now has 16,435 points, 8,981 rebounds and 3,692 assists.
The other players on that short list? In order: Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Karl Malone, Wilt Chamberlain, Charles Barkley and Elgin Baylor.
