Jefferson, who was part of the trade that sent Kevin Garnett to Boston years ago, is thrilled to see KG back with the Wolves. And he is very impressed with the Wolves young players, including rookie Karl-Anthony Towns.’’ “I always had a lot of respect for KG,” Jefferson said. “For him to come back and finish his career where it started? That was really cool. And to help the young guys? Man, you can tell his imprint already at the beginning of the season. It’s a totally different mindset. They’re still young, but you can tell, KG and Tayshaun Prince, they older guys, are really leaving their mark.’’
“When [Clifford] comes and talks to me about something I am not doing right, I don’t feel less than a man walking away,” Jefferson says. “I walk away more motivated. Sometimes the coach who did play in the NBA, they don’t understand what we’re going through. They played – and sometimes they still don’t get it. How we need rest, for example. Cliff gets it. He may get under my skin sometimes, but what he’s saying is the truth. You’ve got to be able to look yourself in the mirror and not fool yourself. You know he’s watched the film. You know he’s put in the work. You know he’s made you better.”
