Who knows how KG return works long term? Who knows how he adapts to mentor role? Who knows how much he has left? But tonight is gonna be fun
Again? Man oh man. I feel the pain. So sorry for DRose. Big fan! Wish you a speedy recovery 🙏
Derrick Rose. Man man man. Terrible.
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
Chemistry between Flip, KG was clear today. KG was comfortable after probably being uneasy at first. "It's like we never left," Flip said
KG: "Beautiful roster, beautiful guys, ...seeing the talent on here is, it's refreshing, because they're guys who will listen"
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
Gary Neal listed as doubtful on Wolves' new injury report, Muhammad, Bennett and Hummel all out of course
What the young Wolves will find out tomorrow night: this community will support NBA hoops to ear-splitting levels when given a reason
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"
When KG was asked if he wanted to coach someday, his answer was clear, theatrical and emphatic: Hell no
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
Happy together http://t.co/WNs72ofPOs
All smiles http://t.co/wP8uowSCHi
Very charming, impressive return for Kevin Garnett in his introductory news conference
KG says he's in it for the long haul. Wants to be in ownership here and take it to a title
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."
KG: "This is perfect. If you're ever have a fairytale, this is how you want to do it"
KG says veteran is "lost art" in this league. "Only way these young guys get better is through some type of leadership, guidance"
KG: seeing the talent on here is refreshing. They'll listen. ... Most talent here than wolves have ever assembled
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"
KG having fun with Eric Perkins during presser, camera clicks go crazy for that smile
KG: "I'm here to share my experience and my journey...just give myself to this team"
KG says it was hard decision, but "I figured if LeBron can go home, why can't I?"
KG: if LeBron can go home, shit why can't i?
KG says it's good to see familiar faces, Flip's children who were kids when he left, Sam Mitchell, etc.
KG: "just good to see familiar faces ... Coming here was a hard decision because I am a loyal person."
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
The presser has started http://t.co/5SXkImDors
Here we go http://t.co/DIuuLKgjZ6
We're t-minus 23 minutes or so and counting toward KG news conference here at Target Center
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."
Wiggins: "He's 38. He came in at like 9:30 this morning. First one in the gym."
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"
He's here... http://t.co/o763vXiJlb
The Man http://t.co/41ITMzKadT
After Miracle On Ice story ran, WCCO anchor Don Shelby called back. Diehard Indiana hoops guy says "Miracle" is fave movie over "Hoosiers."
It's a final: Rockets win 113-102, Harden with the 31-10-11 triple double
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
Antiquing with your lady friend in Duluth can have some perks ... http://t.co/bAQ3khTrk6
When Pek has a shiner, you know this has been a street fight
Don't see that every day: Wiggins just got T'ed up. Rockets lead 79-72 late in 3rd quarter
Wiggins just got clobbered.
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
Harden's 3 in the 2nd qtr's final second ties game at 56 at the half.
Rockets 26, Wolves 25 after a quarter here in Houston
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
Payne getting all the minutes he wants now. Has started the game with Wiggins as only starters still in the game.
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
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.
Kevin Martin is quietly having a very good year. That lob pass in transition though should probably be put in moth balls
Payne goes from basically not playing at all for Hawks to starting tonight vs. Rockets, all in about two weeks
Payne will get the start at power forward tonight vs. Rockets alongside Pek and Wiggins up front
FWIW, Wolves announce Shabazz Muhammad underwent successful surgery on his ruptured finger ligament today in Rochester, Minn.
Patrick Beverley left morning shootaround early by vomiting into a garbage can on his way out, won't play tonight for Rockets
Talked to Amanda Zahui B today. She's taking the attention in stride but admits it's a lot to handle right now
Flip said this morning that he hopes Hummel is back playing within 3 weeks
Flip said this morning he might have to play GR3 or Wiggins a little at PF tonight to get Wolves through at that position
FSN will broadcast live the KG press conference, which means it's time for a haircut
KG will practice with Wolves on Tuesday. The player that needs no introduction will have an introductory presser at 3 p.m.
Kevin Garnett's introductory news conference will be Tuesday at 3 pm at Target Center
If you believe in stars aligning and such things, Ohio State's D'Angelo Russell shares the same birthday (19 today) w/ Wiggins & Flip
Andrew Wiggins turns 20 today, Flip turns 60. "I'd rather be 19," Wiggins said at shootaround today. "I miss it."
