    Kevin Garnett dismisses talk of Wolves retiring his number, says he 'won't forgive' team owner

    Then Saunders suddenly died of lymphoma, and the Wolves were forced to move on with new leadership. Garnett told The Associated Press in 2017 that he believes promises were broken. He retired in September 2016 after a tense buyout negotiation with Taylor.

    "My years in Minnesota and in that community, I cherish," Garnett told The Athletic. "At this point, I don't want any dealings with Glen Taylor or Taylor Corp. or anything that has to do with him. I love my Timberwolves, I'll always love my guys, I'll always love the people who f--- with me there. I'll always have a special place for the city of Minneapolis and the state of Minnesota in my heart.

    "But I don't do business with snakes. I don't do business with snake motherf---ers. I try not to do business with openly snakes or people who are snake-like."

    You don't call someone a snake in public just because you didn't get what you wanted.
    That's just childish.

    Guess KG & KD won't be doing any future business together.

    That snake gave him the highest salary when he was barely old enough to drink.

    What kind of promise broken do you think would cause a star player on TNT to hold a grudge against a team and owner?
    ;)
