Kevin Garnett, NBA News and Notes, and Adrian Peterson

We're still raving about KG's return, Derrick Rose is having another surgery (again), and Adrian Peterson is back in the news. Happy Friday! We're only one day removed from Kevin Garnett's big return to Minnesota (no, it's not time to stop talking about it yet), Derrick Rose is hurt (again), and there are some non-basketball headlines worthy of noting as well. Buckle up, everyone. It's time for the Friday Frenzy. More Reflections on KG Wednesday night's game could not have gone much better than it did. The video welcoming Garnett back to the Pack was hands-down the best in-arena production...

Garnett's return transcendent

Kevin Garnett's re-debut with the Timberwolves was something far, far beyond the game of basketball I remember the first time I saw Kevin Garnett in person. It was 1995. I was around 12 years old, and my dad took me to watch the Wolves play the Houston Rockets. We were about halfway up the lower deck, just left of the baseline. I'm a 6th grader, so I don't know much about basketball except that everyone is a lot taller than me. But my dad knows, so when Flip sends this skinny teenager in against Hakeem the Dream, the first thing he says is, "Man, this kid is about to die..." I remember that...

Zgoda: Garnett makes emotional return

Garnett didn't forget a rookie lesson

Timberwolves coach Flip Saunders shared a story Wednesday from Kevin Garnett's rookie season that drove him. In the preseason in 1995,  Saunders recalled how Portland's Arvydas Sabonis scored on the rookie Garnett and told KG, "You are not in high school anymore." "Well, (Garnett) remembered that and everytime he played against him, (KG) went at him like there was no tomorrow," Saunders said. That is something that Garnett can instill in Andrew Wiggins and the fellow young Wolves players. For "those players to take names and numbers and always remember down the road to get back at them,"...

KG and the Wolves Look to Take Down Wizards: Wolves vs Wizards Game Thread

The Wolves will face off against the Wizards for the second time this season, but this time will be at the Target Center—and this time, Kevin Garnett will be back in the Timberwolves lineup for the first time in almost eight years. Wolves vs. Wizards 7:00 pm CST FS North Minnesota last played Washington on Dec. 16 and came up on the short end of the 109-95 final score. This time, Wolves fans are hoping a different roster will equal a different outcome. Kevin Garnett's return to Mineesota will be the biggest story in basketball Wednesday night. Although the 38-year old forward previously...

There's more to Garnett coming home than him coming home

Kevin Garnett still wants to bring an NBA title to 'Sota, even if he's not a player when it happens This is going to be fun. Kevin Garnett is already my favorite interview and I didn't even ask him a question Tuesday. I didn't need to. The guy is an open book; he wears his life on his sleeves - a real people's player. The anti-Love, quite honestly. His presser was a media landscaping project, with old hands getting re-acquainted with Garnett's forwardness and immersive brand of humor, while new guys (like myself) got a first taste of the Kevin Garnett Experience; candid, with sly humor, but...

Garnett can still contribute on the court

It's not just about a happy reunion; Kevin Garnett can still play the game "I've always said, if you can guard in this league, you can play." That one statement right there is why Kevin Garnett's homecoming isn't just a trip down memory lane. With all of the excitement bringing up long-past memories for fans, and talk about future ownership already taking off, it's easy to forget the present, in which Garnett is still an NBA basketball player who's main job is still to play NBA basketball. At 38 years old, it's obviously unrealistic to expect Garnett to even consistently play 30 minutes a...
