Wow! How can Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor accuse Kevin Garnett of tanking it? And where does the timing come in? Taylor should be ashamed of himself. Tanking it for five games? What about the nine-plus years KG gave to this state and Taylor's wallet? Nobody since Kirby Puckett has done more for a franchise than KG. It's sad that these stupidly timed, absurd comments made it to KG's ears.

Garnett should have no bad feelings toward this fan base or the franchise. I think I speak for everyone except Taylor and his investors. Minnesota loves Kevin Garnett and wishes him nothing but the best and a title. I'm sorry, Mr. Taylor, but the only person who tanked was you when it came to surrounding Garnett with some championship-caliber talent!
