Wolves Updates 4/3

KG on LeBron James:
"When you're like that, people always expect that, because, one, that sells papers, let's keep it real here," Garnett said. "And market dollars are there. When you're dealing with high school kids, the one thing we do take a lot of pride in is loyalty and the opportunity (to embrace) where we come from. And I hope that hasn't been watered down since I came out.

"Kobe's been fortunate to stay in L.A. Hopefully LeBron's fortunate to stay where he's at. Hopefully I can stay here and make this (a better situation). Every situation's different, but at the same time, there's a lot more loyalty and appreciation for the opportunity where we're at."

Stephen Litel/City Pages Sports blog interviews Fred Hoiberg about the season and the future of the team.

Dime reviews T-Hud's "Back on the Block, Vol. 1" and calls it a "solid effort."

Grant Hill on Garnett:
"Kevin's the one who opened the doors and paved the way," Hill said of the preps-to-pros pioneer. "He hasn't won the championship yet, but he still has a chance. I'm sure a lot of people have tried to emulate him both on and off the court."

Mike Trudell/Timberwolves site interviews Pooh Richardson.
