One thing Kevin Garnett made clear at his press conference on Tuesday is that he has no interest in coaching, now or ever. He is willing to teach and instruct any of the Wolves’ younger players before and after practice, and considers this something he owes the game. But you can be sure Mr. Garnett will never be pacing the sidelines in an expensive suit like Mr. McHale and Mr. Saunders now do.
The press conference announcing Garnett’s return to Minnesota was the biggest in the history of the basketball team by far. Tickets will be in demand for Wednesday night’s game, and the crowd will go crazy for KG’s return.
On a personal note, I had a fantastic relationship with Kevin when he was here, from the start to the end, and I paid tribute to him by bowing when he appeared for the press conference Tuesday.\
And after the press conference, he grabbed me and was very interested in my health and welfare, and made it clear he would be available to me when needed. His return will be important for the Timberwolves when it comes to getting media attention, you can be sure of that.
