In direct opposition to what I just said, the only player I do want to highlight is Kevin Garnett, who got his 25,000th point tonight with a fade-away jumper. His response? Thanking all the people who helped him get there and finished with a “it’s not that surprising when you put the work in”. Congrats to KG, another great accomplishment in a hall of fame career.

The Denver Nuggets have a glaring need for a real presence in the post. Kevin Garnett, though a year older and slower, would definitely fill that need.

Garnett doesn’t want any part of a trade that would send him to Denver.

“There has been plenty of speculation in the last...
