It could possibly be related to Adidas, who featured KG in their campaign 'It takes 5'. While I do not know why he is wearing #5; the Celtics retired #21 in 1966 for guard Bill Sharman, so Garnett could not use it in Boston.

"KP34″ as stitched on the tongue referencing KG's close friend and mentor, the late Kirby Puckett of the Minnesota Twins
