MINNEAPOLIS -- Minnesota's Kevin Garnett has won his first Most Valuable Player award, sources told The Associated Press on Sunday.

The Timberwolves said there would be a major announcement regarding Garnett on Monday afternoon at Target Center. Two team officials, speaking on condition of anonymity, said Garnett would receive the NBA's MVP award.

Players and coaches were unavailable for comment when word of Garnett's honor came, but it was not a surprise considering the season he had. Writers and broadcasters from each NBA market vote on the award, and ballots are due before the playoffs begin.

"That's just a formality," coach Flip Saunders said earlier this week. "I don't think there's much drama. It's pretty much signed, sealed and delivered. It's probably on a UPS truck coming up here right now."

San Antonio's Tim Duncan, who won the last two MVPs, and Indiana's Jermaine O'Neal were likely Garnett's closest competitors this season. But the 27-year-old forward, a seven-time All-Star, made his ninth NBA season his best yet.

Leading Minnesota to a 58-24 record and the top seed in the West, Garnett averaged 24.2 points and led the league with 13.9 rebounds. He also joined Larry Bird as the only players to average at least 20 points, 10 rebounds and five assists for five consecutive years.

Garnett, who established 11 single-season franchise records in 2003-04, has avoided much talk of individual awards and kept his focus on winning a championship.

"Anything that comes with that would be great," he said earlier. "It's a team game."

The Timberwolves host the Sacramento Kings in Game 1 of their Western Conference semifinal series on Tuesday night.

Minnesota beat the Denver Nuggets in five games to end a league-record streak of seven straight first-round exits.

He's deserved it for a while now. It's nice to see he's getting the recognition he desereves.

Congrats to KG. Of course I would've loved to see my man JO win the award, but I won't deny that KG deserved it more.

And besides, JO finished a career-high third in the MVP voting. Maybe he'll get it next year.

Meantime, we got our eyes on the more important prize.
