Kevin Garnett vs. Stephon Marbury
Can a feud be one-sided? Because if so, that’s the case here. For all the people Kevin Garnett has gone out of his way to antagonize over the course of his career, former teammate Stephon Marbury was not one of them. If anything, it was Marbury who couldn’t stand to be in Garnett’s shadow, when the two of them played for the Minnesota Timberwolves.
Not content to being Garnett’s tag-team partner on one of the most young and promising teams in the Western Conference, Marbury’s jealousy of Garnett’s large contract extension — and Marbury’s belief that he could be a bigger star if he played in a market besides Minnesota — led to him demanding a trade out of town.
