At 6 feet, 11 inches tall, the Minnesota Timberwolves' Kevin Garnett needs a whole lotta fuel to keep his lanky frame powered up. So in preparation for Friday night's game against the Rockets, the NBA Allstar hit Jackson Street BBQ where he chowed down as only a monolith could do.

The big guy ordered the giant Dino Beef Ribs, a jalapeño cheddar biscuit, smoked chicken sandwich and a Big Red. The entire eatery, we are told, was totally gaga over the NBA star. 

"He was incredibly gracious," reports Bill Floyd, "and did autographs and pictures with the staff."

Jackson Street GM Bryce Gilbert and pitmaster Brandon Allen were quick to get their photo with the Timberwolves power forward, who made them look like munchkins.
