Not spin. KG hasn't been shy about his disdain for Taylor.

That I know. Im talking about the report that came out after the news of Celtics retiring his jersey that KG doesnt want his jersey retired by the Wolves.

It's not "spin" if it's the truth though. KG has let pettiness get in the way of having his jersey retired here.

What?!? You have it backwards. Taylor and the Wolves organization has said that any day that Garnett agrees, the Wolves will retire Garnett’s number. It has been that way for years, and regularly reported.

How do you not know this? And even if you legitimately don’t, why wouldn’t you do a quick internet search before posting?

How is this spin? What benefit would Minnesota media get out of making this up?

We didn't appreciate RoCo as much as we should have. Here's the latest bit about him from RotoWorld


ROBERT COVINGTON
SF, HOUSTON ROCKETS

Robert Covington made 3-of-14 from the field for eight points with 12 rebounds, two assists, three blocks and two 3-pointers in 37 minutes against the Jazz on Saturday.
All three of his blocks were on Rudy Gobert with no cheapies either, and he also blocked Marquese Chriss three times on Thursday. Covington has been unreal in the blocks department with 3.7 per game over his last three, adding averages of 13.3 points, 8.0 boards, 2.0 dimes, 1.0 steals and 3.0 treys in 34.0 minutes per game. What a great trade for the Rockets.

Bad shooting night, but RoCo has been very good for the Rockets.

Honeymoon. Was wild with Wolves when first arrived. Hope he continues to ball for them, but it's a lot to ask someone of his build to take on the Goberts every game. Hope his leggs hold together.

Fair point, but I'm curious if anybody has ever blocked Gobert three times in a game before.

Seems like Wiggins had his first bad game with GS at least offensively. I wasn't able to watch so I don't know how he did on defense.

With this supporting cast it does make much sense to evaluate him. I hope he will have opportunity to play with Klay, Curry and Green at least one season.

Rubio led the Suns past the Jazz last night, with 22 PTS, 11 AST, 6 RB and SEVEN STL!

It's past the All Star break so he'll convert to a 20-6 scoring PG. Happens every year like clockwork.

Jimmy Butler being clutch is one of the biggest myths in NBA

Yeah probably true. But 22/11/ 6 boards/ amd 7 steals is a shade higher level no?

Don’t miss Butler and don’t miss Wiggins ... glad both are gone from here. Two shots to find a wing this draft and move on.
