Wolves Updates 4/26

Owner Glen Taylor on the team's disgruntled fan base:
"I understand that the people are going to complain when you're not winning. That's fair," Taylor said Wednesday during an interview from his home in Mankato. "I don't personally take it as too negative. I just think that most people are like myself: They just want the team to play better. They're frustrated and they don't know what else to do, so they say, 'Hey, Taylor, straighten it out."'

Without prompting, Taylor mentioned James as a trade possibility - hardly a revelation considering his up-and-down production, playing time and demeanor. Taylor also said he's talked to James, Jaric and others with uncertain status, and nobody has asked to be dealt.

The trades are surely coming, though, and they're going to be tough to pull off...

In their "Best Of The Twin Cities" issue, City Pages names Garnett the "best Timberwolves player."
Kevin Garnett will haunt Target Center for decades as the greatest local star ever shackled to a star-crossed franchise...
In another unsurprising move, Garnett also won the reader's choice award for the same category.
