The Minnesota Timberwolves re-introduced Kevin Garnett to fans and media Tuesday, and his teammates got their first taste of the KG Experience shortly thereafter during practice.

Garnett called his return to Minny a “fairytale”, and reaffirmed a desire to go into team ownership once his playing days come to an end.

Garnett was his usual fiery self in his first practice with these T-Pups, yelling and barking orders at everyone on the floor.

Per the Pioneer Press:

Rookie Andrew Wiggins said Garnett clocked in around 9:30 a.m. at Target Center. Anthony Bennett thought he was the first in the weight room before 11 a.m. until he walked in and realized Garnett already was halfway through his workout. […] “That says a lot right there,” Bennett said. “I just went up and introduced myself, and we kind of talked a little. He said he’s basically like an older brother. He’s just going to teach us along the way.”

 

During Tuesday’s early afternoon practice, Garnett twice yelled at burly center Nikola Pekovic to get back on defense. […] “I think nobody in (Pekovic’s) career yell at him to run back on defense, so that’s good,” Ricky Rubio said. “Everybody listens, and everybody respects him. He’s doing everything it takes to get better.”

 

With Garnett’s help, Rubio said he can become a more vocal point guard. […] “I don’t know how to do it yet. I’m too nice, so I hope he teach me that bad side,” Rubio said. “That (will) help team to improve.”
