Garnett nets MVP honour
Kevin Garnett of the Minnesota Timberwolves
Garnett has been a key figure for Minnesota this season
Minnesota Timberwolves forward Kevin Garnett was named the NBA's Most Valuable Player on Monday.

Garnett was second in scoring and led the league in rebounding this season while leading Minnesota to their first Midwest Division title.

Garnett, who is in his ninth NBA season, finished second in the voting to San Antonio Spurs forward Tim Duncan last year.

The seven-foot forward averaged 24.2 points and 13.9 rebounds this season.

He also averaged 5.0 assists for his fifth straight season of 20 points, 10 rebounds and five assists a game, a feat matched only by former Boston star Larry Bird.

Minnesota, the top-seeded Western Conference side, will meet the Sacramento Kings in the best-of-seven semi-finals.
