Kevin Garnett returns to the Target Center with the Boston Celtics for the first time since he was traded by the Minnesota Timberwolves before the start of the 2007 season. And the ST. PAUL PIONEER PRESS reports that despite the fact that their team went 22-60 last season and are 2-8 so far this season, and Garnett wound up, you know, winning a title, the Timberwolves’ top brass still insists that the seven-for-one trade was a good deal for the team.
Yup. And that Jay Buhner for Ken Phelps trade actually worked out for the Yankees, too. But keep in mind that this is a franchise that continues to employ Kevin McHale as the key decision-maker in their front office, despite the fact that he managed to help the franchise lose four first-round draft picks in an attempt to lock down Joe Smith to a long-term deal.
