Jerry Zgoda missed the entire Kevin Garnett era, but he's back covering the Timberwolves after working the beat for their first four seasons two decades ago. In between, he covered a bit of everything: Gopher men's and women's basketball and NCAA athletics, golf, outdoor recreation, sports media and a little Vikings and Twins.

Yet another morning update

Greetings, again. Talked to Lakers coach Phil Jackson, and he had some interesting things to say:

--On Love's play of late: "I think you can mention Kevin (but) I think really it's the addition of Beasley that has allowed Kevin to have a little more range of latitude in his position," Jackson said. "Because Beasley is such a focus for other teams to have to play. That gift they got from Miami has really worked out well for Minnesota. Kevin is a dog on the boards, he's always there, always pursuing. To have other teams have to focus now on some scoring opens up that avenue even more."

--Jackson on the Wolves' potential to be a good team: "They certainly have a lot of young talent. The talent is going to prevail at some point, if they get their roles down. If they can understand their roles and accept them."

 

That's it. I just thought he had some interesting things to say and wanted to pass them along. Have a good day.
