Updates Part IIMarc Stein/ESPN talks to Steve Nash:
6. How tantalizing was it to hear that Phoenix is where Kevin Garnett wants to go if he finally leaves Minnesota?
I love Kevin. I'd love to play with him [someday]. But I love my team, so I don't really think about it. We've got a great team moving forward. That's all I think about.
7. You and KG are said to have become pretty good friends in recent years. How did that happen?
Really just from playing in All-Star Games, but we haven't been able to spend that much time together. It would be overstating it to say we're super close. But he's a great person, great for the game. He's got to be one of the [all-time] top 50 guys, easy.

Warriorsworld.net talks to San Jose Mercury News' Tim Kawakami about Golden State's chances of getting Garnett.
As I've written a few times, the longer we go into this, the less likely that other serious bidders are going to stay bidding--Phoenix would be the big dog in this one. If Phoenix has decided Amare Stoudamire won't be moved for KG, then the Warriors become the next-most-likely candidate, it's just up to McHale.
