Reports of Kevin Garnett’s pending retirement announcement created a Twitter storm Friday afternoon.

The tweets, photos, GIFs, and video clips mostly celebrated the Timberwolves star’s long and successful career that began in 1995 as a 19-year-old. Star Tribune beat writer Kent Youngblood broke the news that Garnett, now 40, will end his career with the Wolves with one season remaining on his contract.

Karl-Anthony Towns tweeted ellipses soon after the news broke, but most athletes have remained quiet for now. Fans and media, however, began posting their memories and favorite clips of one of the most intense and fiery players in league history.

Garnett was trending on Twitter within minutes after the news broke and later posted his own video on Instagram and wrote "To be continued... ."
