    I think that'd be a real nice move to make. If only for the sentimentality of it and the mentoring KG can give to Wiggins and LaVine. Garnett will get to retire where it all began. Supposedly Thad Young will be the main piece going over.

    Legend is a bit of a stretch

    What do you call someone who has the team record for almost every category and won a league MVP while there?

    A lot of saltiness in this thread based on what happened vs DH.

    Im sure what happened vs Howard we an isolated incident. I feel no need to watch ANY other games from Garnett's career to prove otherwise.

    I'm somehow sad because it shows that he is going to retire and never see him again as a player.
    Garnett was a spectacular player, I remember in nba 2006 (or 07 not sure) his rating was 99!

    lol wut?

    Thad Young is an incredibly tradable player. Using an asset to bring home a washed up KG for a year just for the nostalgia factor?

    This isn't about KG or a Disney story. It's about Minnesota grasping at straws to find some semblance of meaning as a franchise. Just move them to Vegas or something this is getting old. Old and sad.

    KG needs to just go ahead and end it where it began. The Brooklyn move was a sad attempt at ring chasing.

    He was a dick well before the whole thing with DH... it's good to see him finish his career out on a crappy team.
