Minnesota Timberwolves Rumors
Kilpatrick’s mind raced as fast as his wheels up I-95. “I had a little giddy up on the highway,” Kilpatrick, now a starter for the Brooklyn Nets, remembered. “I kept telling myself, if I get pulled over by the cops, I’m gonna tell ‘em the reason why.” He sped north unscathed, likely covering the 134 miles between the Bob Carpenter Center and The Garden in record time. Traffic only slowed Kilpatrick once he approached Times Square.
When he finally arrived at Pennsylvania Plaza, Kilpatrick literally parked his car on 31st Street, tossed his keys to an MSG security guard and bolted for the Wolves’ locker room. “I just jumped right into the layup line,” he said. Kevin Garnett growled preparatory advice. Kevin Martin whispered “just play your game,” in Kilpatrick’s ear. He would play 10 minutes that evening, attempting one field goal and grabbing a rebound.
