Vikings bending over backward to try to make Adrian feel wanted.
NFL says it will appeal. The timeline will be interesting.
Last night was magical but that it was unprecedented for its thunder...well, its volume was just another night in OKC or Oakland
Several options: NFL can appeal, send it back to arbitrator for review under old personal conduct policy, reinstate Adrian. We'll see
Hard to see how Harold Henderson wouldn't take Doty's ruling into account if/when it goes back to him. Would he just say, "Nah"?
NFLPA calls Doty's ruling in favor of Peterson "a victory for due process and fairness."
Doty says arbitrator "simply disregarded the law of the shop and in doing so failed to meet his duty under the CBA."
Adrian Peterson situation just got more interesting really quickly. Probably coming as a surprise to many
This is going to date me, but...why did watching tonight's game remind me of Woody Allen's 1983 mockumentary Zelig, only in reverse
You get into this business for nights like tonight. The energy, the poetry, the goosebumps. You can't beat it
KG on seeing Jiggly Boy: "If u saw a fat guy w/everything out dancing w/your name on his chest, you would pay attn for at least 5 seconds"
KG: I looked into crowd and saw my friends and family. I'm glad my daughters were here to see that. It was just a special time.
Talking to Rubio, what resonated tonight was how this city will embrace someone if they show loyalty and produce. It hit home for him
Great atmosphere at TC tonight. Awesome to have BigTicket back. Part of the family. Welcome back KG! http://t.co/AJ1jt171Ih
Ricky Rubio: "“I think how we started the game shows how shocked we were. We were like, ‘Damn, this is big.’”
KG" ,,, But to see it is reality and I'm very appreciative."
KG: "I did not know the city missed me like this. I don't think u can ever wish or ever think the city loves you like this. ..."
Kevin Garnett: “I did not know the city missed me like this. I don’t think you can ever wish or ever think the city loves you like this."
KG: "I've been back b4 and never paid attn to how much love is still here for me. ... Tonight it was just over the top. ..."
The best thing about tonight: It was cool in this town to like the NBA again.
Flip: tonight's event was bigger than the game. It was about bringing a family member back home
Season low in points allowed for Wolves. 97-77
What a night. It ends with KG stuffing a Wiz possession, hollering "It's over! It's over!" to the crowd and being serenaded as he left.
Wolves bust out the KG old school "Get out your seats! It's the 4th quarter" vid.
19,856. For a Wednesday. Vs. the Wizards.
"Get the (bleep) up! Get the (bleep) up!" a menacing Kevin Garnett stands and yells to Target Center crowd as Wolves take a big lead.
Garnett raising his arms on bench to get crowd out of its seat. Wolves taking control. Up 70-54
Garnett much more effective in 5-min stint to start second half, helps lead Wolves off to 13-6 start in 3rd qtr and a 55-48 lead.
Wiz have been playing poorly all night. Shoulda been up by 20 early. NOw that Wolves have gotten out of their own way, they're pulling ahead
Ultra-intense Kevin Garnett couldn't refrain from cracking a smile from the dancing fat man that ripped off his shirt to honor KG's return.
KG just gave Jiggly Man a salute. He's crackin up.
Wizards F Kris Humphries out rest of night with strained left hamstring
Wolves were down 18-3 and shooting 1-14. Outscored Wiz 39-24 and shot 14-27 over final 18 minutes
At the half: Wolves 42, Wizards 42
Wolves have come back from 15 behind to tie game at 42 very late in 1st half.
Kevin Martin has 16 on 6-9. Single-handedly keeping Wolves in it
Rubio misses a break on a layup, leads to a 3, then just throws one away too. 0-5 for Ricky. KG trying to settle him down
Big swing there: Ricky misses fast-break layup, Temple hits 3 at other end. Wizards open lead again, 40-35
KG buries 1st jumper as a Wolf. 1-4 FG now
Ricky feeds KG on backdoor cut, draws foul, headed to line for first points. He makes one of two as crowd chants MVP, MVP
Garnett checking back into game w/ WIggins, Rubio. Wizards have ball, lead 35-32
For as lousy as they've played, Wolves trail just 33-31 now w/ KMartin headed to line for a FT midway thru 2nd qtr. They're on a 7-0 run
Kevin Martin speaks KG's language. His the shot got the foul, looked at KG, snarled and cursed.
Four-point game. Crazy.
Adreian Payne is out of control
Wolves missed first 9 shots, trailed 13-1 and now equalled season-low scoring for any quarter. They trail Wizards 20-11 after a quarter
1-14, 6 TOs.
Pek breaks the drought. 1-12 now, then local favorite Kris Humphries hammers a dunk
Now Martin sits with 2 fouls. Wolves in danger of getting buried before the 1st quarter is over
