THE NBA RETURNS to London this week — and one of the game’s biggest stars showed his true colours yesterday.
Brooklyn Nets giant Kevin Garnett stopped by Stamford Bridge where he got a tour of the ground from Chelsea duo Andre Schurrle and Demba Ba.
Garnett later posed in a Chelsea jersey for the obligatory pics, and gave Schurrle and Ba Nets shirts of their own.
After meeting the 6’11″ centre — and being dwarfed by him in the photos — Schurrle remarked: “Kevin Garnett was really, really tall.

“It’s unbelievable, but when I saw him it was good to see how this great player who achieved so many things was so happy to be at our stadium.”
Not to be outdone the Atlanta Hawks, who play the Nets in London’s O2 Arena tomorrow night, also visited Stamford Bridge on Tuesday.
