Taylor on KG's #21 jersey

From Charley Walters/Pioneer Press:
The Timberwolves have no immediate plans to retire the No. 21 jersey of Kevin Garnett, the future hall of famer who was traded to the Boston Celtics last week.

"But if somebody asks for that number, I don't think I'm going to give it out," team owner Glen Taylor said. "Kevin was a special guy for our franchise and for Minnesota."

Garnett's new No. 5 Celtics jersey already is the top-selling NBA jersey at and at the NBA Store in New York City.
