Kevin Garnett: Anything is possible, World premiere, Showtime. In 1995, Kevin Garnett was the first player drafted into the NBA straight from high school in over 20 seasons.

Thanks to his unique physical profile and ambitious decision to moving from preparations to pros, Garnett’s rise to stardom dealt the first blows to the notion of amateurism in the sport and paved the way for a generation of young athletes to follow.
