HOOPSWORLD.COM: In early May of 2007 three friends got together with a single, simple purpose . . . bringing Kevin Garnett to the Los Angeles Lakers. Of course none of the trio were in position to directly impact the Minnesota Timberwolves or Lakers, so they set out to do the next best thing: blogging.
Thus was born GetGarnett.com.
The site immediately garnered a following, receiving over 10 million hits to date.
Whether or not they’ve made an impact in the “real world” is hard to gauge but recent reports indicate the Lakers are in fact working on a deal to get Garnett . . . and the Wolves may actually be willing to play ball.
“GetGarnett.com represents the spirit and a dream for better days for Lakers fans,” says 20-year old Chris Manning (LD2k). “GetGarnett represents the passion that Lakers fans will always dream. That’s the beautiful thing about the site, the fans check in every day for news, reports, and our takes. We are fans too and even if Garnett is traded elsewhere, someone has to carry around the torch.”
