Updates Part II

Garnett said he wasn't surprised by the reports that Iverson had asked for a trade. He also added:
"We've always spoke about how we've always wanted to play (together)," Garnett said. "It's no different from Chauncey (Billups, Detroit guard) and myself speaking on playing again with each other. … We all understand the reality of it and how the salary cap works, the exclusiveness of players and all that stuff, him being loyal to Philly and vice versa here with myself."

Garnett isn't concerning himself with that now that Iverson is a Denver Nugget.

"It's time to move on, man," Garnett said. "Like I said, I've learned not to put too much hope into situations, especially when it comes to management getting things done."

Garnett on the loss to the Bucks:
"Sometimes we get caught up in a newfound offensive rhythm," Wolves forward Kevin Garnett said. "At the end of the day, our bread and butter is our 'D,' and we have to get back to that."
