For 25 years, AND1 has remained synonymous with the game of basketball and its street-ball lifestyle. As we look to the future, we’re excited to bring Kevin Garnett back to AND1 as the brand’s creative director, global ambassador and strategist, to widen the brand’s distribution channels and to expand into new territories. We’re looking forward to working with Garnett and rolling out the innovative programs we have planned for the year, which will further deepen the brand’s connection to consumers.”

I’m thrilled to get back to my roots and partner with AND1, one of the best basketball brands in the industry. We have many initiatives underway that we’ll be launching, including my new capsule collection, which I’m particularly excited about.
