Bonafides From 2002-2012: 2008 NBA Champion, 2004 NBA MVP, 9x All-Star, 2008 Defensive POY, 4x All-NBA First Team
By the time the Complex Decade began, KG was already in his seventh season in the NBA but he built his legacy over the last 10 years. The Big Ticket became a consistent All-Star (named to 9 teams over 10 seasons), won MVP honors in 2004, and finally won a title in 2008. The best thing to happen to dude was getting the hell out of Minnesota and becoming the leader of the O.G. Big Three. Yeah, he's slowed down a little on the court but his intensity is definitely still there. Plus, with the way the Celtics whooped on the Heat the other day, who says the oldheads don't have a chance in this year's playoffs? Anything is possible!
