Boston Celtics’ big man Daniel Theis answered several question on Twitter during a Q&A with NBA fans. Theis said his favorite player growing up was Kevin Garnett.

Garnett, who officially became a Hall of Famer on Saturday, led the Celtics to their last NBA title, along with Paul Pierce and Ray Allen, in 2008.

Theis claimed that he started to play basketball at the age of 15, being a big fan of his fellow countryman Dirk Nowitzki, but then, growing up, he fell in love with “Big Ticket’s” game.
