Coach Casey Hints At Officials' Lack Of Respect For KGCasey hinted that there's a lack of respect from officials for Wolves all-star forward Kevin Garnett. Casey said he has sent in tapes to the NBA vice president Stu Jackson as evidence.
"Kevin Garnett is probably the one superstar in the league that does not get to the free-throw line," Casey said. "I'm not accusing the officials. But that's just something that amazes me that he gets bumped and banged and pushed around and doesn't get calls. We've sent tapes into Stu, and we've gotten e-mails back that there was no contact. But that's nothing new for Kevin. He's mentally tough enough to play through it."
Said Garnett: "Fouls and pushing and being physical are part of the league. I push on the other end also, so I'm not going to sit there and complain about it."
