Cardinals’ Larry Fitzgerald visits Kevin Garnett’s Area 21 on TNT

Mar 21, 2017, 8:44 AM

Larry Fitzgerald of the Arizona Cardinals stays busy during his offseason.

His travel adventures have been well-chronicled. He’s always stays involved in various charity endeavors and, since he’s playing again in 2017, he’s getting ready for the rigors of an NFL season.

But there’s always time for a little fun, too.

Fitzgerald visited the NBA on TNT crew in Atlanta Monday night and hung with the guys from Area 21, the players only portion of the show hosted by former All-Star Kevin Garnett.

Growing up in Minnesota, Fitzgerald was a fan of Garnett in his early days with the Timberwolves, and he shared a story of wanting to be like his idol and reminisced about the first time he met the star.

He then shared a little wide receiver knowledge with Garnett, Chris Bosh, Chris Webber, Isiah Thomas and Baron Davis.

He did elaborate on his extensive travel experience, talking about some of the 96 countries he’s visited in his life.

And he ended his appearance like others have — by signing Area 21’s backboard. Fitzgerald signed right under another one of his childhood favorites, Randy Moss, because as Fitz put it, “you gotta know your place.”
