Kevin Garnett: Celtics have culture of basketball, opposite of Timberwolves


The Celtics are retiring Kevin Garnett's number - a reasonable, though questionable, decision in historic Boston.

There's a better case for the Timberwolves to retire Garnett's number. And they want to. He just hasn't been amenable.

It doesn't sound as if his stance has softened.

Garnett, via Gary Washburn of The Boston Globe:

Garnett's feud with the Timberwolves - specifically owner Glen Taylor - stems from Flip Saunders' untimely death. Since, Garnett has repeatedly taken shots at Minnesota.

Time heals most wounds, and I expect Garnett and the Timberwolves will eventually reconcile. Minnesota will surely retire his number someday.

But that day doesn't appear near.
