In case you were unaware, Kevin Garnett doesn’t have the best relationship with Minnesota Timberwolves Owner Glen Taylor and the organization these days.
Garnett has a rift with Taylor because when he was traded back to the T’Wolves in 2015 he was promised a role with Flip Saunders in the front office upon his retirement or even a part of ownership.
Saunders would tragically pass away in October of 2015 and Garnett would finish his career in the 2015-16 season before retiring and seeing Interim General Manager Milton Newton and Interim Head Coach Sam Mitchell fired after the season and no front office or ownership role for Garnett.
Hence, the feud between Garnett and the T’Wolves, specifically Glen Taylor.
Here is what Garnett told Shlomo Sprung of Awful Announcing about his desire to be a part owner of the team:
“I don’t want to be partners with Glen [Taylor], and I wouldn’t want to be partners with Glen in Minnesota,” he said. “I would love to be part of a group that buys him out and kind of removes him and go forward.”
Taylor reportedly has no interest to sell the team at this time so Garnett may not get his wish for a while.
Garnett is far too vital to the brief history and fabric of the Minnesota Timberwolves franchise, there needs to be a reconciliation and jersey retirement soon.
Kevin Garnett may be the most petty NBA player of all though so I won’t bet much money on it.
