Wes Unseld Rumors

“I’m flattered, to be honest,” said Garnett. “When they told me that I passed Wes Unseld on the rebounding, I was at a loss for words. You guys have no idea what I was like as a kid. I didn’t have all the magazines, but for some reason I had all the pictures that were in the magazines. I don’t know how I was able to acquire that, but that’s another story. I just fantasized, mimicked, appreciated — all the things that a young kid does when he’s creating heroes, when he’s creating stories in his head. Anything to generate any type of motivation, and I guess at times to generate a distraction. I used it for inspiration, getting through a hard day.

Jackson also plans, in the near future, to bring assistants Michael Malone, Pete Myers, Wes Unseld Jr., Jerry DeGregorio, Darren Erman and Kris Weems to Southern California, where he pastors a non-denominational church, for more basketball prep. “They’ll make life easy for me,” said the first-time coach in a lunch meeting with the three local beat reporters. “We’re going to be on point. There won’t be a learning process when the season gets here.”
