Garnett Tanked?

Some surprising comments from Glen Taylor, owner of the Minnesota Timberwolves today.

He told the Pioneer Press in Minnesota that Kevin Garnett “tanked” at the end of last season.

Here’s the exact quote:

“It was more like, I’d say, K.G. tanked it. I think the other guys still wanted to play, but it sure changed the team and didn’t make us as good.”

I find that hard to believe, based on personal experience anyway. Garnett has proven to be one of the most intense players in the league, sometimes too much so. Many times his teammates need to calm him down, so the thought of him loafing, not going 100%, is hard to swallow.

Having been somewhat laid back around the media this season, Garnett probably won’t offer any kind of retort. And Minnesota is lucky they don’t have to play the C’s again, because K.G. would probably put up a triple double on them.
