Updates Part II

Garnett says the fact that's he's been with his current team longer than any other active player shows that he has "got the most patience in the league."

Said Garnett: "That's just who I am. That's my makeup. Sometimes it flows into your everyday life and some of your business sense. I believe that loyalty is a sense of pride and a sense of patience at the same time. It doesn't mean it's not frustrating at times."

KG on the team having to "fix what's wrong with no outside help."
"We have no choice," Garnett said. "You get tired of coming in the locker room, talking about the same things. Some things do get old. You have to adjust. Our practices are great practices. We just have to find a way to apply some of the practices to games and we'll be OK."

AP sports writer Jon Krawczynski offers a "holiday 'thank you' to KG."

Swingman Ricky Davis was rumored to have bitten Milwaukee Bucks center Andrew Bogut during the fourth quarter of Friday night's game at Target Center...
"I had heard that I bit somebody," Davis said. "Didn't nobody bite nobody."

From The Pioneer Press:
It appears the days are numbered for Timberwolves coach Dwane Casey, who would be the scapegoat for a team that simply doesn't have the talent to contend.

Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor is willing to pay his former coach Flip Saunders $1 million, but no more than that, as part of the offset contract deal when Saunders was hired by the Detroit Pistons.
