"What's Up With Kevin Garnett's Beard?"

I've never been a Red Hot Chili Peppers fan but can't help but love the following from Flea's blog on

Bynum: Told You So
so lakers/ twolves tonight
my wife says "whats up with kevin garnett's beard?........he looks like some
kind of polygamist
or an amish guy or something"
well that made me laugh (he does have a pretty trippy beard right now)
but even though the twolves are our western conference rival
kevin garnett is a very loveable man and i admire him greatly
he has kept his chin up to the sky and played with intensity and passion
despite only once(i think) ever making it pass the first round of the playoffs
and having to deal with that weird season last year after sprewell and cassell
and having terrible luck with that whole joe smith imbroglio
and worst of all losing the beautiful man malik sealy.....
kevin garnett is great and has a great vibe he is smart and funny
i love him

Arash Markazi/ thinks Garnett is possibly the key to the Lakers' quest for a championship. He suggests Lamar Odom, Kwame Brown, and a couple draft picks in trade for KG.
"Jimmy Jam" Harris, KG's brother-in-law, says about Garnett's future:
"I have no idea. I have no say in that," said Harris, who was chatting with Garnett and Bonds after the game. "Even if I did, I wouldn't use it. I just want what's best for [Kevin]. I want him to sniff that ring."

The Wolves site/Mike Trudell interviews Marko Jaric. After Jaric brings up the war in Iraq, he's then posed with questions regarding his favorite food, movies, and places to shop.

From Steve Aschburner:
The Wolves had to be one of the most thoroughly staffed teams in the NBA over the weekend, based on the presence of their own personnel men on the trip. General Manager Jim Stack, assistants Rob Babcock and Fred Hoiberg and director of international scouting Zarko Durisic all joined the team for some or all of the trip...

"After a while, we'll start breaking it up," Hoiberg said Tuesday before the Wolves lost to the Lakers. "One of us will go on the trip, the others will do some scouting."
