Wolves Updates 10/18

A few months ago, The Wages Of Wins blog had a post entitled The Tragedy Of Kevin Garnett, a piece in which they discuss how, though KG is consistently the most productive player in the league, he's constantly surrounded by below average players.

Thanks to Matt K. for sending me this post from the Wages Of Wins which features the blog's take on the new roster:
All in all the talent in Minnesota, despite the Szczerbiak trade and potentially questionable move of trading Roy, appears to have improved. Still, beyond KG and James, this is not a very good team.

Steve Aschburner talks to Garnett and Flip Saunders about the latest DWI for the driver who killed Malik Sealy. The Star Tribune also talks to Malik Sealy's mom.

According to the Pioneer Press, Al Harrington said he seriously considered signing with the team because of Garnett.
"It was very close," Harrington said Monday after an exhibition game against the Wolves. "They tried everything they could. It was just Atlanta not wanting to accept anything that they offered (in a sign-and-trade deal). The interest was definitely there. They definitely tried everything they could to get me; it just didn't work out." declares Garnett a "Man On The Spot."
