Kevin Garnett calls Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor a ‘snake’

Kevin Garnett calls Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor a 'snake'Garnett's No. 21 has yet to be retired in Minnesota Kevin Garnett is easily the first thing that fans think of when it comes to the Minnesota Timberwolves. However, since ending his playing career in 2016, Garnett has yet to have his No. 21 jersey retired by the franchise. The reason for that may be due to Garnett's fractured relationship with Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor. In a recent interview with Shams Charania of The Athletic, Garnett claimed that the reason that his No. 21 jersey hasn't been retired is because he "doesn't do business with snakes." "Glen knows where I'm at, I'm not entertaining it," Garnett said. "First of all, it's not genuine. Two, he's getting pressure from a lot of fans and, I guess, the community there. Glen and I had an understanding before Flip died, and when Flip died, that understanding went with Flip. For that, I won't forgive Glen. I won..

Jadeveon Clowney unlikely to return to Seahawks as team explores other options, per reportThe star pass rusher remains unsigned, and Seattle has apparently stopped chasing him Jadeveon Clowney has reportedly lowered his asking price while searching for a home in 2020 NFL free agency, but that doesn't mean the star pass rusher is any more likely to return to the Seattle Seahawks. According to NFL Network's Mike Garafolo, the chances are "slim to none" that Clowney re-signs with Seattle for a second season with the team. Joining Seattle's 950 KJR on Tuesday, Garafolo warned to "never say never" regarding a reunion between the two sides, but he added that the Seahawks are potentially already "moving on to Plan B, C and D" and "aren't actively chasing Clowney right now." NFL Network's Tom Pelissero previously reported that Seattle hadn't closed the door on re-signing Clowney but "couldn't wait any longer to start adding potential replacements," hence th..

Notre Dame athletic director opposes possibility of college football games played with no fans

Notre Dame athletic director opposes possibility of college football games played with no fans The cancellation of spring practice, suspension of football-related activities and uncertainty surrounding the 2020 college football season due to the COVID-19 pandemic have caused administrators to think outside the box when discussing how to proceed when things crank back up. One of the most widely-discussed options -- not just in college football but all sports across the board -- is the idea of playing games as scheduled without fans inside the stadiums. Notre Dame athletic director Jack Swarbrick isn't a fan, telling ESPN that he's not keen on that particular option at all. "I don't see a model where we play, at least any extended number of games, in facilities where we don't have fans," he said. "College football is about the cheerleaders and the band and the campus environment on game day. We're interested in solutions that allow us to have a traditional game..

Revisiting the Warriors trade that officially turned them into Stephen Curry’s team

Revisiting the Warriors trade that officially turned them into Stephen Curry's teamContrary to popular belief, the trade that sent Monta Ellis to the Bucks wasn't seen as only about Curry at the time It's easy to forget how good Monta Ellis was for the Golden State Warriors. From 2007-12, there wasn't a defender in the league he couldn't get a bucket on. In just his second season after being selected 40th overall straight out of high school in the 2005 NBA Draft, Ellis started for the "We Believe" Warriors that upset the top-seeded Dallas Mavericks in the playoffs. He was named Most Improved Player that season. He was 21 years old. He was, as they say, the future. Three years later, Ellis had become the league's sixth-leading scorer at 25.5 points per game, one of three seasons in which he registered among the league's top 11 scorers during his Golden State tenure. He was never an All-Star, and he certainly had his flaws. But he was certifiably bel..
