He was a member of the National Basketball Players Association Executive Committee from 2000-2008 where he served as Secretary and Treasurer.
At Lewis-Palmer High School in Monument, Colorado, Garrity was a three time All-State selection and part of the 1994 Class 4A State of Colorado High School Basketball Championship team. He was a three time All-State selection and the Class 4A player of the year for the 1993-94 season as well as valedictorian of his high school class. His jersey, number 53, is retired at Lewis-Palmer High School.
At the University of Notre Dame, Garrity spent four years with the Fighting Irish, averaging double-digits in scoring in all four seasons, including a 23.2 point-per-game average in his senior season of 1997-98. He was the Big East Men's Basketball Player of the Year in 1997. In 1998, he was a Consensus Second Team All-America selection. He was a two-time Academic All-America selection as well as Academic All-American of the Year for Men's Division I basketball in 1998.
His rookie year was spent in Phoenix, and he averaged 5.6 points per game in 39 appearances (in an NBA lockout-shortened 50-game season). Following his inaugural campaign, Garrity was traded, along with Danny Manning and two future draft picks, to the Orlando Magic for Anfernee Hardaway.
He played in all 82 games with his new team in 1999-2000, averaging 8.2 points per game and shooting 40.1 percent from three-point territory. He had a similar performance in 2000-01, and then in 2001-02 his scoring average hit a career-high of 11.1 points per game as he started 43 of the 80 games he played. During that season he ranked 7th in the NBA in both 3 point field goal percentage and 3 point field goals made.
His average dipped to 10.7 points per game in 2002-03. Garrity's 2003-04 campaign ended after he played in only two games due to cartilage damage in his right knee, which forced him to undergo microfracture surgery.
