Regardless, he’s the greatest player in team history (by a very wide margin), and as he makes his first visit to Minny as an opposing player this week, shouldn’t he be expecting more than this:
The only plan the Timberwolves had for the player who was once their Big Ticket was to announce him first to allow him to get a lengthy ovation.
No flashy video tribute or special gifts.
Call me old-fashioned, but that’s just embarrassing. KG is the franchise leader in every meaningful statistical category, and hardly anyone would own a T-Wolves jersey if he never played there.
You’d think that the least McHale and company could do – even though the injured Garnett isn’t expected to suit up on Friday night – is splice together some video clips of his greatest moments, which not so incidentally, happen to also be the team’s greatest.
