KG Not Pushing For A TradeFrom the Pioneer Press:
Garnett bemoaned the state of the Timberwolves on Sunday and all but publicly begged owner Glen Taylor to get him the help he needs to compete for an NBA title. But Garnett said Wednesday he is not trying to push a trade, and Taylor said he wouldn't do it anyway.
Also from the Pioneer Press:
"It's the NBA; everything's fair," Casey said Wednesday. "If (the trade) doesn't work, it's on my shoulders. I take that responsibility, against a short amount of practice time. But it's the job of myself and my coaching staff to make it work."
"It's not fair at all," he said. "You have to understand, he's a first-year coach coming into his own, and you make some midseason acquisitions. It makes it difficult not only for him but for his staff."
Wally Szczerbiak on reuniting KG and Stephon Marbury:
"Yeah, you might as well try," Szczerbiak said of the pairing. "Right now their teams aren't doing too well, so you might as well try pairing them back up together. Maybe it could work, who knows?"
KG's 28th consecutive double-double last night is the most since Charles Barkley's 28 in the 1986-1987 season.
The recently released Richie Frahm had 16 points in the Rockets win over the Sonics on Wednesday night.
