Fire McHale!

I should have known today was going to be crazy: Starbury was in town and rumors about a reunion between him and KG were circulating like mad, the Wolves came close to "its biggest collapse in franchise history" in their narrow margin win over the Knicks, and the movie "Crash" received its own Twolves jersey (it even said "Crash" on the back) at the start of the game.

Then Garnett came as close as he has all season to publicly acknowledging that being traded is an option:

"I've always said I'll be in Minnesota as long as they want me here," he said. "I don't think I can take another one of these rebuilding stages. I've always said that I think I'm worth not only being listened to but I think I'm definitely in a position where I (should) have a team and I do have a chance to win a ring and I do have an opportunity. So I think, at the end of the day, they should at least give me that. If it's anything different from that, then it's a discussion we have to talk about.

"I don't want to go through this no more," Garnett said. "I think I'm more deserving of a better team and I think the city's more deserving of a better team, coming in here having something that's going to be competitive and having us getting back to the Western Conference finals. But I do know you just can't blink and it's going to happen; you have to actually spend the time and effort, so we'll see."

So Garnett awaits the summer and the Wolves' next move, saying, "I have faith in Glen that he'll do the right thing."

But according to the New York Daily news, a source close to Glen Taylor says that "Taylor is dead-set against trading Garnett."

And the New York Times has an article in which they ask KG about playing with Marbury again and Garnett responds:"I've never been opposed to a reunion," he said, "but I've always let him know that I'm going to be in 'Sota, he's always let me know that he's going to be in New York. So I guess we got a problem.

Who the fucks knows. True, it's difficult to feel at ease when Ticket talks so openly about wanting a ring and losing patience with the team though both thoughts are completely merited. Regardless, I'm not changing the name of this site unless something actually happens.
