Minnesota and Kevin Garnett are in advanced discussions on a buyout expected to end KG's second stint with the Wolves, league sources say.

 

 

Darren Wolfson Retweeted Brad Omland

I did say that this morning on @1500ESPN, and have on the podcast. @ESPNSteinLine has a tonight update. #twolves

They're saying he might retire. Looks like 2016 is the year where the NBA loses Kobe, Duncan, and KG.

Kobe, KG, Duncan is a great HoF.
Garnett will have the best speech.

Now if only Paul Pierce and Vince Carter would announce retirement.

That would make it the best HOF class ever.

 

5 guys in top 25 all time scoring

 

Throw in Dirk and no contest. But Dirk has maybe 2 more years left in them legs maybe.

(Be interesting to see Dirk pass Jordan which is probable. Or pass Kobe which is possible...but Dirk would need to play 3 more seasons for these)

 

And now maybe add Bosh who doesn't look like he's going to be cleared by anyone to play to the list of HOFers.

 

Wow this will be a great class

Praying for  1. Some Cohesion (Ill fitting parts with young bucks, new guys, and those playing for next contracts may muck things up all season) 2. Better Coaching, No More Tanking (Last season was more of the latter but not sure how much of the former we can count on. Walton with something to prove this season as much as any Laker player) 3. Rookie Watch (Hoping Lonzo outshines his daddy (ROTY??), and Kuzma finds minutes and makes a push for all rook 2nd team)

READY FOR SEASON!!!

guessing he'll be on the coaching staff of the Wolves. 


"Bryant had come to rage against the idea that Howard's clownish disposition could overtake the locker room, the Lakers' culture, and had warned Howard that he would never, ever let it happen."

Arguably greatest defensive player ever and most versatile big ever, truly a transcendent talent.

Man these Hall of Fame speeches are going to be epic. Can already see Kobe/Garnett talking about their Lakers/Celtics duels. Even the Kobe/Spurs (Duncan) rivalry.

In the past 2 decades, 13 of the past 20 Championship Finals Series has featured one of those players.  CRAZY

I read somewhere before that he wants to buy the twolves, or somehow own part of it.

Which means he's been taking care of his money.

League in good hands with AD and KAT replacing KG and TD
Kobe's heir is _______?

One candidate is Ingram in terms of two way potential. His game is pretty and skillful
