Jerry Zgoda

If you didn't catch it live, here's video from KG's afternoon presser strib.mn/1AItMvh

Jerry Zgoda

Target Center bowl darkened while they're waking thru pre-game intros for tomorrow night. Don't remember this for regular Wed game vs. Kings

Darren Wolfson

#Vikings UFA buzz in Indy has them looking at safeties and middle linebackers. Can also address, of course, in the draft.

Jon Krawczynski

Chemistry between Flip, KG was clear today. KG was comfortable after probably being uneasy at first. "It's like we never left," Flip said

Darren Wolfson

ICYMI: KG presser highlights: ow.ly/JC9aU ... Players/coaches discuss KG (Mitchell was great): ow.ly/JC9c5 #twolves

Jon Krawczynski

KG: "Beautiful roster, beautiful guys, ...seeing the talent on here is, it's refreshing, because they're guys who will listen"

Jerry Zgoda

Btw, forgot to tweet this earlier, but Flip let loose the worst-kept secret this afternoon: KG will start tomorrow night's game vs. Wizards

Jerry Zgoda

Gary Neal listed as doubtful on Wolves' new injury report, Muhammad, Bennett and Hummel all out of course

Jon Krawczynski

What the young Wolves will find out tomorrow night: this community will support NBA hoops to ear-splitting levels when given a reason

Jon Krawczynski

KG: "thruout time, I've understood that you have to forgive and forget. I obviously won't forget certain things, but it's time to move on"

Early story: Kevin Garnett says it feels full circle to come back to #Twolves, and early impact on the young players. twincities.com/sports/ci_2759…

Darren Wolfson

Simple scheduling conflict for Taylor's absence today. As KG said, if there was any bad blood w/ anyone, he doesn't come back. #twolves

Jon Krawczynski

When KG turns it on, there's no better interview in all of sports. He had it going today and it was great to have him back

Jerry Zgoda

Happy together http://t.co/WNs72ofPOs

Andy Greder

Kevin Garnett will start Wednesday vs. Washington, #Twolves coach Flip Saunders said. That introduction Will. Be. Epic.

Jon Krawczynski

All smiles http://t.co/wP8uowSCHi

Jerry Zgoda

Very charming, impressive return for Kevin Garnett in his introductory news conference

Jon Krawczynski

KG says he's in it for the long haul. Wants to be in ownership here and take it to a title

Jerry Zgoda

KG: "I'll be honest. I don't even recognize downtown at all...I'm going to have to get out. I just got to get reacquainted."

Jerry Zgoda

KG: "This is perfect. If you're ever have a fairytale, this is how you want to do it"

Jerry Zgoda

KG says veteran is "lost art" in this league. "Only way these young guys get better is through some type of leadership, guidance"

Jon Krawczynski

KG: seeing the talent on here is refreshing. They'll listen. ... Most talent here than wolves have ever assembled

Jerry Zgoda

KG says talent on this team is reason he looked at this seriously, "talent is endless, they have talent to be whatever they want to be"

Jerry Zgoda

KG having fun with Eric Perkins during presser, camera clicks go crazy for that smile

Jerry Zgoda

KG: "I'm here to share my experience and my journey...just give myself to this team"

Jerry Zgoda

KG says it was hard decision, but "I figured if LeBron can go home, why can't I?"

Jon Krawczynski

KG: if LeBron can go home, shit why can't i?

Jerry Zgoda

KG says it's good to see familiar faces, Flip's children who were kids when he left, Sam Mitchell, etc.

Jon Krawczynski

KG: "just good to see familiar faces ... Coming here was a hard decision because I am a loyal person."

Jerry Zgoda

KG's family, sister, representatives are here today

Flip says he told KG "I just want you to be KG, be who are you," which means competitive person foremost

Rubio on KG yelling: "I don’t know how to do it yet. I’m too nice so I hope he teach me that bad side, that help team to improve."

Jon Krawczynski

Wiggins: "He's 38. He came in at like 9:30 this morning. First one in the gym."

Andy Greder

Ricky Rubio said Kevin Garnett wasted no time and yelled at Nikola Pekovic to get back on defense during his first #Twolves practice.

Jon Krawczynski

Rubio on KG's 1st practice: "he already yelled at Pek twice to get back on defense. I don't think Pek has been yelled at his entire career"

Andy Greder

Anthony Bennett said he was in weight room at 11 a.m. Kevin Garnett was already in there working out. KG said he will be a big bro. #Twolves

ICYMI, my story: Miracle on Ice recollections remain strong 35 years after the U.S. stunning upset vs. Soviet Union. twincities.com/sports/ci_2757…

Andy Greder

After Miracle On Ice story ran, WCCO anchor Don Shelby called back. Diehard Indiana hoops guy says "Miracle" is fave movie over "Hoosiers."

Andy Greder

Clip is EVERYWHERE! RT @steventurous: Let’s not look at one Rubio defensive possession and conclude he doesn’t know how to play defense, hm?

Darren Wolfson

#Vikings hoping to re-sign DT Tom Johnson. But $$, like always, the issue right now. There was a meeting in Indy.

Jerry Zgoda

It's a final: Rockets win 113-102, Harden with the 31-10-11 triple double

Darren Wolfson

Another fun #Twolves game to watch - many recently w/ Rubio playing. Thought they had good looks tonight. Will make those shots other games.

Jerry Zgoda

Payne has his first career double-double -- 11 points, 10 rebounds -- on 4 for 15 shooting in 29 minutes. Rockets lead 99-96 w/ 2:39 left

Andy Greder

Andrew Wiggins knows Kevin Garnett is watching this game. #Twolves

Andy Greder

Antiquing with your lady friend in Duluth can have some perks ... http://t.co/bAQ3khTrk6

Jon Krawczynski

When Pek has a shiner, you know this has been a street fight

Jerry Zgoda

Don't see that every day: Wiggins just got T'ed up. Rockets lead 79-72 late in 3rd quarter

Jon Krawczynski

Wiggins just got clobbered.

Jon Krawczynski

Rubio has made some wild passes that he shouldn't have pulled the trigger on tonight. Has to settle down when it's not there

Jerry Zgoda

Harden's 3 in the 2nd qtr's final second ties game at 56 at the half.

Jerry Zgoda

Rockets 26, Wolves 25 after a quarter here in Houston

Jerry Zgoda

Pek getting ice on cut under eye after he got hit earlier in game. Checking back into game not quite as handsome as he was when it started

Jerry Zgoda

Payne getting all the minutes he wants now. Has started the game with Wiggins as only starters still in the game.

Jerry Zgoda

Ricky takes Payne aside for some gesturing and teaching. Budinger into game and at line for Wolves team that lead Rockets 23-22 late in 1st

Jerry Zgoda

Pretty good start for Adreian Payne in his first start: 2/4 FG for 4 pts, no fouls so far and Wolves lead 14-9 with 5 minutes gone.

Jon Krawczynski

Kevin Martin is quietly having a very good year. That lob pass in transition though should probably be put in moth balls

Jerry Zgoda

Payne goes from basically not playing at all for Hawks to starting tonight vs. Rockets, all in about two weeks

Jerry Zgoda

Payne will get the start at power forward tonight vs. Rockets alongside Pek and Wiggins up front

Jerry Zgoda

FWIW, Wolves announce Shabazz Muhammad underwent successful surgery on his ruptured finger ligament today in Rochester, Minn.

Jerry Zgoda

Patrick Beverley left morning shootaround early by vomiting into a garbage can on his way out, won't play tonight for Rockets

Jon Krawczynski

Getting set to join @DanBarreiroKFAN in minutes. Lots of balls in the air today. Should be a meaty segment ... or two.

Darren Wolfson

Piggybacking on @GoesslingESPN: Told Dogra/Bzezinski will be fine. 2 long-time competitors. Definite mutual respect even after Fri. #vikings

Jerry Zgoda

I'll be on @105theticket with @BenHolsen105 and @thesuperstar68 in about 10 minutes talking Wolves and you know who...

Jon Krawczynski

Talked to Amanda Zahui B today. She's taking the attention in stride but admits it's a lot to handle right now

Darren Wolfson

No shock on DeLaSalle senior wing Sacar Anim committing to Marquette moments ago. #Gophers never offered. I like his future.

Darren Wolfson

ESPN analyst Mark Dominik allegedly broke up the exchange between AP's agent & Brzezinski... & CBS Sports has the scoop. Classic. #vikings

Jerry Zgoda

Flip said this morning that he hopes Hummel is back playing within 3 weeks

Zach LaVine

It's wk 2 of #GQstylewars. By RT w/ #GQstylewars you will helping towards my goal of winning $10k for my fav charity! http://t.co/3pAZ4Yq8qG

Jerry Zgoda

Flip said this morning he might have to play GR3 or Wiggins a little at PF tonight to get Wolves through at that position

Jon Krawczynski

FSN will broadcast live the KG press conference, which means it's time for a haircut

Jon Krawczynski

KG will practice with Wolves on Tuesday. The player that needs no introduction will have an introductory presser at 3 p.m.

Jerry Zgoda

Kevin Garnett's introductory news conference will be Tuesday at 3 pm at Target Center

Darren Wolfson

For your planning sake: KG presser at 3p tomorrow. Will be streamed everywhere, I bet. #twolves

Jerry Zgoda

If you believe in stars aligning and such things, Ohio State's D'Angelo Russell shares the same birthday (19 today) w/ Wiggins & Flip

Jerry Zgoda

Andrew Wiggins turns 20 today, Flip turns 60. "I'd rather be 19," Wiggins said at shootaround today. "I miss it."
