This Makes Me Mad
The news today from the big cheese at the Fargo Timberwolves' headquarters is incendiary, to say the least.
Anyone who has watched five minutes of professional basketball during the last ten years knows that if there is one player out of all the hundreds in the National Basketball Association who can never, EVER be accused of giving anything less than full effort, it's Kevin Garnett. The Big Ticket is undeniably, indisputably, title belt-unifyingly the hardest-working man in basketball, and nobody comes close. He has played at least 76 games per season every single year in the league except one, and his career low in minutes per game is 37.9. He has averaged 45 minutes per game in eight playoff appearances, all with Minnesota (until this year). At age 31, he's already 25th all-time in rebounds and 33rd all-time in minutes played--one spot ahead of Shaquille O'Neal, six years his senior.
Basically, Glen Taylor is a douchebag piece of shit who obviously never watched his own basketball team play basketball. If he had, perhaps they wouldn't have lost in eight straight opening round playoff series. Ooh, did that sting, Glen? Are you feeling a little emasculated now that the best athlete in your state has finally kicked you to the curb and your once-promising franchise is the second-worst team in the league? Well, fuck you. You deserve it.
