Kevin Garnett earned the nickname “The Big Ticket” as an NBA superstar in a historic career that spanned more than 20 seasons. Now retired from the basketball court, the nickname still sticks as Garnett has immersed himself in the sports betting industry.

Garnett is the co-founder of Gaming Society, a media company launched in 2021 that creates content to make sports betting inclusive, accessible, and easy to understand. He starred in the 2019 movie “Uncut Gems,” which revolved around a sports bettor. And in October of 2021, Garnett signed with BetMGM as one of the online sportsbook’s brand ambassadors.

“I’m thrilled to be working with BetMGM to share their insights with my fans. It’s a natural fit for both myself and BetMGM given our mutual desire to stay on top of the ever-changing sports business landscape."

Garnett is featured in BetMGM’s marketing campaigns, promotions, social media content, and fan events.

He showed off his acting chops and intense nature in a BetMGM ad campaign, filming commercials that saw him relaxing and enjoying retirement, that is until he hit a big parlay to get the competitive juices flowing again.

“Big Ticket hit big parlays!” Garnett exclaimed in the commercial, getting the pool cleaner amped up as well. 

Garnett can also be seen across BetMGM’s social media platforms, helping promote the best sportsbook for NBA odds.
