Great news for those wishing to see Kevin Garnett in purple and gold, which is most of us. Make it happen, Mitch, Buss, or whoever.

Boston Herald: There have been some quiet denials, but one source close to the situation insists the deal for Kevin Garnett was all set before agent Andy Miller said his client didn’t want to go to Boston.

‘‘I don’t know why Danny (Ainge) didn’t just pull the trigger anyway,’’ the source= said. ‘‘There’s no way Kevin would opt out of that contract and leave $24 million on the table. No way.’’

There is also the belief among some in Minnesota that Celtics [team stats] ownership got cold feet when the initial fan reaction toward dealing Al Jefferson [stats] was so negative.

    This is old news, everyone knew the deal was close until KG spoke and said there’s no way he wants to play for the Boston Celtics.

    Yeah Fools,
    KG will be a Laker, but in the trade we need more bigs so get Blount.
    Lakers all the way!
    Lakers for life!

  • mj2kb

    Thats cuz KG is a Laker by heart! He doest want to go to the Lakers enemy. Hes said that his favorite team were the Showtime Lakers

    I like this one but I can’t find no more news on the TV and internet these days.It seems like the lakers will not talk trade talk anymore.They must be keeping a big secret. Kobe/Phil/Buss/and Mitch are not talking at all to the publc. I feel that KG IS COMING TO LA. But they will probaly say it quietly on T.V. on espn news our some were.
    It seem like it will take another month.

  • aaron

    this summer all we have been doing is reading KG rumors and listening to KOBE demands i dont think KG deal is going to happen, dont get me wrong i want that to happen more then anything but i just dont see it, i think we should just concentrate on what we have and try to get better, there were a lot of free agents that i whould of loved to see them here but we couldnt get them, so KG to LA is what every one wants but does KG himself want LA? I think if KG really wanted to come to LA he whould of made it very clear for every one. KG or no KG GO LAKERS!!!!

  • http://www.getgarnett.com Fred A.

    This is old news. I no that! I just want to get to hear the
    Trade talks between L.A. and Minny.

    I have to agree with that statement. Why hasn’t he said anything about LA? He went out of his way to specifically say Phoenix. And a warm place isn’t exactly “I want to be in Laker uniform next year.”

  • dude

    even though he didnt say LA…. wasnt there reports that he tried to call KOBE… I wonder how that went

  • Fatty

    Maybe KG doesn’t want to sabotage his teams value in trade?
    Like if Kobe would say I will only play for Chicago. The Bulls would own the Lakers. In this case, I think the deal is going down and nobody is going to spoil it by going public. This is some real top secret stuff. Not even Bucher can figure any of this out.

  • aaron

    [quote comment=”7943″]even though he didnt say LA…. wasnt there reports that he tried to call KOBE… I wonder how that went[/quote]

    What im trying to say is that if he really wants to play in a lakers uniform next season he should just come out and say it, calling kobe or any one else is secondary, first step he needs to take is tell minnys front office that he wants out and wants to be in LOS ANGELES LAKERS, then he can call kobe and they can talk about how they want to win and there Goals.

  • Big D

    I saw KG in a Lakers uniform last night in my dreams as clear as day. The funny thing about the dream was, while there were other players present, it was like KG and KB were the only two men on the court and they were unstoppable.

    Keep the faith fellas…it is going down and I bet it happens sooner than you think!

  • http://LOL ZACK

    BREAKING NEWS KOBE n BYNUM HAS JUST GOT SENT 2 MEM 4 PAU GASOL MIKE MILLER n WARRICK n SWIFT SIKE IM READY 4 KG 2 COME DIS MO EVANS REPORTING LIVE

  • Fatty

    Big D

    Last night on the blog I had a strong feeling KG was coming and we would win the title the first year he’s here.

    Even tho we don’t have all the pieces necessary, I feel if you give PJ just enough pieces, added to it, the drive Kobe and KG have, they will take us to the promised land. Now this wasn’t your normal feeling. I’m talking “Close Encounters of a Third Kind feeling” That drive or feeling started with these Getgarnett.com guys, and has grown to others. When these guys started this site, it was considered far fetched. And now it is closer to reality.

    Just saying…….

  • k0be da 1 andonly

    KG wont accept any trades unless its to LA. He’s waiting for Mitch to do something so he can finally accept a trade deal.

    !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!KG 2 LA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and nowhere else

  • Big D

    Fatty,

    I have no doubt what you say is true. And while I can’t personally recall a time when we did not have a hall of famer playing Center, I know it can be done because Phil is, well, Phil. Nuf Said.

    PJ will go down as the greatest coach of all time and everybody will love Mitch and the Busses again. OK, maybe love is a strong word in this instance, but you get my point.

    Hopefully, Luke uses the force to hit his threes this year and will always be open as the players stand around confused about whom they are to double team between KB and KG.

    Now will someone please call Stern and tell him to polish the Larry O’Brien trophy for us cuz we like it nice and shiny.

    FOR THE MILLION’TH TIME – KG THROUGH HIS AGENT HAS SAID HE WILL ONLY APPROVE A TRADE TO THE LAKERS AND WILL REJECT ALL OTHER’S AND IF MINN DOESNT TRADE HIM TO THE LAKERS, HE WILL GO THERE NEXT YEAR AND MINN WILL GET NOTHING….

    Yo aaron prove what you’re saying is valid. PROVE IT. I DON’T BELIEVE ONE WORD YOU”RE SAYING. PROVE ME WRONG, and I’LL SAY SORRY.

  • Adam

    Ya i read that statement as well about Garnett even more eager to put on a Lakers uniform, but the minnoesta front office are stingy as hell and only want that blockbuster trade that will help their team significantly. We have put every laker in that deal to get that Garnett, butt nothing has happen it isnt Mitch’s fault but the Timberwovles front office. I have heard from a inside source that KG will be in a lakers uniform if any other team doesnt go to the length were going and give a young franchise player a la Amare from the suns, or young talent like monta ellis, and patrick O’Bryant from the Warriors.

  • KBisDarthVader

    not so sure if kg would say no to the celts now that they have ray allen…kg,pp, and ra are a lock to make it to the finals in the weak east

    thats not my statement i was asking the guy if he has valid source or a link to what he is saying. thats what i want to know as well if what his saying is true. the person who wrote that is tj bro ask him to prove that to you, i just want valid links from him from what his saying if its true.

  • mlkg721

    these rumors are all well and good, and i enjoy the speculation. But if you really look abck on big trades, all the rumors never lead to the actual trade. i’m actually kinda happy its been quirt. think about it, did we know that shaq was going to Miami befor it happened? How many rumors did you hear about Randolph to the knicks or ray allen to the celtics? I dont remember hearing to many rumors aboout Iverson to Denver beofre it went down, same with artest to sac. So in this case, no news might be good news.

  • Q WUOR

    YA CHECK THIS OUT…PACER’S ARE GOING LONG DISTANCE NEXT YEAR…NO REALLY THEY ARE GONNA BE THE EAST VERSION OF GS..THEY ARE GONNA CHUCK THE 3 LIKE NO MAN’S BUSINESS AND I THINK THEY WILL AVG MORE 3’S THAN ANY TEAM IN THE LEAGUE…O’BRIEN SAID IF GRANGER, RUSH, MURPHY MISS 3 ATTEMPTS IN THE ROW..THEY SHOULD KEEP CHUCKING IT UP..

    NOW HOW DOES THIS CONCERN ME (LAKER FAN)..WE HAVE WHAT THEY WANT. AND NO IT’S NOT ODOM. THEY COULDN’T WANT ODOM (ANOTHER FORWARD THAT DOESN’T POST UP YET HE SHOOTS A TERRIBLE 29% FROM DOWNTOWN..NOPE THEY COULDN’T WANT THAT.) LAKERS GOT GUYS THAT CAN REALLY STROKE IT..(J.CRITT, FARMA, FISHER, SASHA, EVANS, MAYBE COBY KARL, WALTON, VLAD, COOK) THAT’S 9 PLAYERS. WE COULD GIVE THEM SASHA, VLAD, BYNUM, COOK/KWAME. THEY MIGHT GO FOR THAT…WOULD HURT IF WE GIVE UP VLAD & COOK THOUGH..WE NEED TO KEEP 1.

    ok….

  • http://Lakers.com Ed24

    This might work and get us garnett

    Trade Bynum and Brown to New Jersey for J-kidd, send him to Minny, then send Lamar Odom and Vlad to Minny for KG and Mark Blount.

    Got this from http://www.clublakers.com

    Guys, vote against that faggot Shaq for Who’s Now. I thought the name of the show was Who’s Now not “Who was 10 years ago”. That fatass motherfucka doesn’t even deserve to be mentioned on TV let alone be in Who’s Now. Fuck that faggot. Waste of sperm and I think most of you would agree with me. VOTE AGAINST BITCH ASS, USED UP, WASTE OF LIFE SHAQ FOR WHO’S NOW.

  • nba analyst

    Ed24….no way NJ deals Kidd for Bynum and Brown….they just signed Magliore and have no need for those guys, let alone giving up their best player for him.

    Question: Why do people think that these other teams are just going to give away their best players in trades to the Lakers? It is obvious the pressure to make a deal is with Kupchak….and yet, fans here think that teams are going to come to the Lakers, when it is the exact opposite. Nobody wants to help the Lakers….and really, each of these teams knows there are better deals out there.

  • http://Lakers.com Ed24

    I didn’t come up with trade, I just saw it on clublakers.com and thought it was a good trade for the Lakers.

  • LAKERS4 LIFE

    Listen dumbasses

    Why in the hell would u think kg is going to the lakers. I got my reasons.

    1. His pussy ass would have been here a month ago if Mchale approved of the odom/bynum deal.

    And if he does come here he will arrive in a blockbuster trade that will leave us with only one big man.

    AS IVE SAID, GET JO. case closed!!!!!!!!!!

  • LAKERS4 LIFE

    Don’t get me wrong, Garnett may feel good about coming to the lakers but as ive said, damn MCHALE is in my way and all the rest of you nief fans who pray to god. If MCHALE does not feel the duo were offering is fair enough by the end of the offseason, JO can probably satisfy kobe’s need of “help” even though I believe our roster has potential with odom back at full power.

    I’m not dissing kobe, my favorite basketball player, but it upsets me to see him try to tear down the Lakers organization by demanding a trade. If it wasnt for kobe, i personally wouldn’t want a trade.
