With Kevin Garnett’s four defensive rebounds in the Timberwolves 111-108 loss in Denver Friday night, Garnett became the NBA’s all-time leader in defensive rebounds for his career. After Sunday’s game in Phoenix, Kevin Garnett how has 11,410 career defensive rebounds, passing Karl Malone who had 11,406 rebounds in his career.
The third player on the all-time list is an active player as well, Tim Duncan with 11,050 defensive rebounds during his career. If Tim Duncan decides to play another season after 2015-16 he could potentially steal that crown from KG.
