Everyone goes home happy.

Is Wally, expirer, and draft pick "market value" for KG? Wally's contract is brutal. If that draft pick was definately Durant, then maybe...otherwise, that deal blows.

You're wrong, that's a great deal.

KG will not bring back more than Shaq or Barkley did.

It's pretty amazing nobody talks about that interview on youtube that was put in here. It was breathtaking for me. Although I don't agree with Garnett about not being able to accept losing of any kind, I respect him for that a lot. It was an interview worth watching, something a conversation should be about.

Also, he is one of my favorite players in the league, although I don't especially like watching him play. However, I like watching a real, authentuc dude compete. His loyalty is something that should be respected a lot more than it is being actually respected. kBlaze nailed it, though. I agree with him to the fullest.

Garnett is definitely in the top 3 for me in the last 10 years. Up there with Duncan, right after Shaq. Actually I think he is a better player than Duncan, it's just his style of play and unselfishness causing him problems. But I do think that Duncan's real advantage over him is his franchise abd the way the Spurs are handling matters. It's so sad that fans label Garnett a loser. He is not. The Wolves are.

IF the pick is Durant/Oden, then its fair. If it's not, Wally's crappy contract, an expirer, and what Wright? Noah? THAT'S NOT a "great deal".

Oh, NOW its the most important thing? After you've pocketed well over 200 million from the Wolves, a large portion of what the entire team is WORTH?? AT LEAST 25 percent of that should have been put towards the team around him, maybe they wouldn't suck so bad then. This guy is not very smart. Idiot dug his own grave, and he can't even man up and sit in it. Baby.

ur a freakin idiot. thats all i have to say to you sir

KG doesnt need anymore young players and wait for them to develop. he needs veteran help. he's already got plenty of young talent in foye, mccants and smith.

i just hope KG would forget about bein so loyal and demand a trade like everyone else in this business would do if they were in the same situation.

KG is the realest person in professional sports ever and one of the best players to ever play the game. I want him to win almost as much as i want the raptors to win. But I dont even see this draft doing anything for him in terms of a championship, even with durant or Oden by his side. I hope someone can prove me wrong cuz I really want dude to win.

If the wolves can't get a lot back for Garnett, there's no point in trading him.

KG needs to lower his SALARY to get Minnesota to get more good players, KG is eating up the cap so much, KG imo is not worth 21 million, KG can help the WOlves by resigning and downgrade his SALARY to about 12 million a yr, ONLY THEN he can get my sympathy but for now he's nothing but an overpaid washed up vet.

KG has lowered his salary and what did management do???? used it to sign players like mike james and troy hudson and players like that to fat contracts. if u wanna complain about a timberwolf's paycheck, start with hudson or james or hassell...not the guy who puts forth 110% every night even though he's stuck with a few nbadl players on his team

So would the T-Wolves do a Eddy Curry and Steve Francis for KG and a 2nd round pick? The salaries match up and it gives the Knicks a much better player to run the offense through while giving the Wolves an up and coming center for the future who can easily put down 20 points a night and a former all-star who still has plenty of game left in him...
