Knee-jerk Notes: Adreian Payne

Well, it's been a grip of time since I last did one of these things. So, let's just get right into it before I lose momentum and stop typing. Can Adreian Payne develop into a rotation player? Hello, everyone. The Minnesota Timberwolves acquired Adreian Payne, 24, from the Atlanta Hawks about one week before the trade deadline and, shortly thereafter, traded Thaddeus Young to the Brooklyn Nets in exchange for Kevin Garnett. Because of the injuries suffered by Anthony Bennett and Robbie Hummel, respectively, Payne and Garnett will fill up most of the minutes left in wake of Young's...

Thaddeus Young fitting in with the Nets

NEW YORK -- It looked like Thaddeus Young and Markel Brown had been playing together for years. Try 68 seconds. And yet just over a minute after Young checked in for the first time since being acquired by the Brooklyn Nets in a Feb. 19 trade deadline deal in exchange for Kevin Garnett, he anticipated that the high-flying rookie guard would rise up, threw a perfect lob pass and the duo successfully completed a highlight-reel worthy give-and-go alley-oop in Los Angeles, displaying the kind of on-court cohesiveness you would think takes some significant time to foster.

Redick details double technicals with Saunders

With about a minute left in the Los Angeles Clippers' 110-105 win Monday over the Timberwolves, J.J. Redick and Flip Saunders received double technical fouls. Here's what Redick had to say after the game: "I think there was a foul (on Kevin Garnett) on the play. I was kind of walking to get to my spot on free-throw line, and Flip was on the court -- I'm not sure why he was on the court. He was yelling and stuff, and I said (to an official), 'Get him off the court.' And Flip turned to me and said, 'Man, shut […] The post Redick details double technicals with Saunders appeared first on...

Timberwolves: Kevin Garnett's resistance to Celtics trade puzzled Rivers

Los Angeles Clippers coach Doc Rivers was concerned about Timberwolves forward Kevin Garnett's mental state when he held up the trade from Minnesota to Boston.

Garnett on Rivers

Timberwolves power forward Kevin Garnett shared the influence Los Angeles Clippers coach Doc Rivers had on his 20-year career. Garnett and Rivers will square off Monday at Target Center. The two were on the same side with the Boston Celtics from 2007 to 2013, including winning the NBA title in 2008. "Doc had a huge impact in my career," Garnett said after Monday's shoot-around. "Teaching us the true meaning of teamwork, teammates and having pride and playing for the next guy. Great time in my life, times I will never forget. Monumental times. Some of the best times of my […] The post...

A visual guide to Kevin Garnett's defense

Kevin Garnett still gets it done on the defensive end, and here's the walkthrough to prove it When the Wolves first traded Thaddeus Young for Kevin Garnett, there were plenty of critics who didn't like the deal because they believed Minnesota had sent away a player who was useful for a player who wasn't. They were...and are....wrong. We looked at how Kevin Garnett is still a top rebounder and defender earlier. He's still averaging 12 rebounds/36 minutes, and still ranks in the top 20 (if you remove the minutes played qualification) in a number of defensive categories, including defensive...
