5. Kevin Garnett, Celtics
Garnett continued to be one of the more famous basketball players in the world despite reaching the age of 36. His resurgence was the main reason the Celtics were able to take Miami to seven games in the Eastern Conference Finals. He was also the best free-agent center on the market this summer, and his re-signing means the Celtics keep their tough, intense public face. Garnett has made more money playing basketball than any other human being. Hard to argue with that.
