Two quick fouls for Payne, staying in game for now
Anthony Bennett down with leg injury, up and walking slowly off court. Headed to locker room. First look at Adreian Payne
One thing just occurred to me in tumult from Thurs: If KG plays another year or 2, doesn't that guarantee Flip as coach at least that long?
Friday night crowd howls when fast-moving pre-game video flashes KG head shot up in a flash among all the other images
Pregame wolves video: "Big things are coming." With KG shown just briefly. Crowd lovin it
First time I've ever typed this: Kevin Garnett & Robbie Hummel are Wolves' inactive players tonight
Jalen Rose broke the news about Mayweather-Pacquiao like a month ago, right?
Zach LaVine occupies the locker KG had in 1st go-round in MN. LaVine offered it up to KG, but he's taking the vacant one right next to him.
Flip said one of vets told youngsters yesterday their phone better be put away in locker room with KG around, or they'll end up in toilet
Flip says Rubio's minutes restriction probably bumped up to low 30s now after AS Break
Anthony Bennett getting the start tonight at power forward
Shabazz available to play tonight with that finger injury. Only guy out injured remains Hummel, who's wearing smaller brace on hand recently
Flip says Bennett will start at PF tonight
Wolves will show condensed version of slam-dunk contest at halftime tonight
KG will not play tonight. Won't even be in the building. But you can already feel a different buzz at Target Center. It's noticeable
Wolves moved quickly to get KG back up on the wall in the back hallways of Target Center. His is right next to Flip http://t.co/v7bREncjPi
Shabazz has that finger(s) on left hand taped but out shooting and looks ready to go tonight vs Suns
Btw: KG returns still ranked 1st in franchise history in games, minutes, rebounds, steals, blocks & points, all by a large margin
On a Dinkytown street, some college bruh just yelled at me, "KG's back, baby!"
That didn't take long to promo in Target Center skyway. KG poster must be right behind http://t.co/k0b8ZkeH9t
Zach didn't want to let slam-dunk trophy out of sight so lugged it home himself. "In a big ol' bag. It looked like I was grocery shopping."
Flip said they tried Brooklyn last summer on KG as part of Love trade but Nets weren't ready to go there yet
A leftover thought from last night: Flip recounted Love trade - now basically Wiggins, AB & KG - and seemed pretty darn satisfied with it
Mark your calendars: I'll be doing a live chat Wednesday at 12:30 pm, just hours before KG debut. Grab a sandwich & bring your questions!
But the prospects of repairing the relationship between a franchise and it's greatest player is important.
Of course, ultimately, if KG doesn't help the young core mature and have a major influence that leads to wins, it won't be a success
KG spent 12 yrs here. Like Wiggins said: "When u say Wolves, he's the 1st thing that comes up." So there should be good feelings all around
if anything can come of this reunion, a bridging of the gap between KG and the franchise may be 1 of biggest long-term goods
If you watch Wolves games, Taylor is always very jovial w/past players when they come back to town. Hasn't been case w/KG, a prideful guy
Got a little messy when KG left in '07. He and Glen Taylor haven't said more than hello to each other since. Will have to reconnect.
Just a question I've been pondering all night: what do you think it'll take to get Steph Marbury to come home from China?
Thad Young's last 15 games: 16.3 ppg, 49% FG, 6.1 rebs, 3.4 assists, 1.7 steals. Nets are getting a productive player in prime.
If there isn't just a tiny portion of you that gets warm fuzzies at thought of KG in a Wolves uni again, well, why folo sports at all?
I woke up like this...... FLAWLESS!!!!
Just passed Anthony Bennett in arena corridor heading downstairs to shoot at 10:30 pm. "Got to, man," he said
Wolves should definitely _ DEFINITELY _ wear throwbacks on Wednesday night against Wizards for KG's debut.
Looking for semi truck drivers w/ CDL's! Pleanty of work and opening! If you know of any spread the word
As if there were any doubt: KG will be wearing No. 21 again. Gonna be a trip to see him in it again.
Flip says early plan is to play KG 10-20 minutes. Let Bennett, Payne chew up most of minutes.
I have no idea how this is going to work out with KG in Minnesota. But I can say it's going to be compelling as hell to watch
Milt Newton told story of players laughing in locker room after a L. Had to pull rooks in and set them straight. Says KG will handle that
Now this is timing: Tomorrow is the deadline for current season ticket members to renew. Coincidence...or not?
Doc on KG: ""He's the most loyal human being alive. He's going home. It's where started and it's where he's going to end." ¶
Asked about trading that Miami 1st pick basically for KG, Flip guaranteed KG will have more impact than that pick ever will have
KG will arrive Saturday, play first game Wednesday vs Wizards at Target Center
Flip says Kg will arrive Saturday but won't play till Wednesday at home
Flip surprised so many reporters stuck around for the announcement of signing Lorenzo Brown for rest of the season
Wolves officially announce Thad Young for Kevin Garnett trade
Next to Rubio, KG is my grandma's favorite. So it's a banner day for her. I know this is essential information for all of you.
Call from AP Sports Grandma: "Jon! Did you know Kevin Garnett is coming back? Oh I'm SO happy!"
For those asking if they should plan on seeing KG tomorrow: again, has 48 hrs to report. No pressure on him to get here. So plan on waiting.
13 trades, 37 players moved today. Unreal
A big factor in bringing in KG, even at this age: his winning mentality. On a team that has lost for too long, they welcome that.
This by far is not scientific but I've got to believe among happiest teams today is Brooklyn, even if that BLopez deal fell apart
For those keeping an eye on such things, did the secondary ticket market really spike with today's trade news?
For those asking, I wouldn't rush out on Stubhub and buy tickets for tomorrow's Suns game intending to see KG play
You can probably go back to Flip-Mac bringing Terry Porter, Sam Mitchell in to mentor a young KG in partly explaining today's trade
Still waiting for Flip, but am told his thinking is team, beyond Ricky, lacks vocal leadership. This move probably addresses that some.
Trade call not yet done so no Flip comments, but KG's role will be measured on-court but expanded off court in practice, locker room
A bit of semantics: wouldn't actually be an extension for KG. Would technically be a new deal for him. either way, 2 more years
