During the second quarter, Garnett was taking the ball out of bounds and a fan hollered: "Hey Kevin, please come back next year!" Garnett simply muttered: "No way."
HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: Kevin Garnett may have considered returning to Minnesota -if Glen Taylor didn’t kick him on his way out the door so many years ago.
Taylor, the Timberwolves' owner, publicly bad-mouthed Garnett months after wrapping the Hall of Fame post in a bow and giving him to the Boston Celtics as part of the most one-sided swap in franchise history.
Garnett, for better or worse, has pride. Lots of it. He has a long memory and won't consider signing with the Timberwolves as a free agent this summer.
It doesn’t matter that he still loves the city. And it doesn’t matter that the team are returning to prominence behind the fine play of Kevin Love and Ricky Rubio.
Taylor still owns the team, which means the Timberwolves have no shot at Garnett.
