6:07 AM PT — 7/22 — Kevin Garnett is now trying to bury the hatchet with Glen Taylor — hoping they can end their beef so KG can buy the team.
“Regardless of past feelings with Glen, I would love nothing better than to become partners going forward in this great but massive rebuilding of a city that I deeply love,” Garnett said in an IG statement.
“Putting the past to the side/focus on the now,” Garnett added … “*F*** the rest. #Bigfacts #TrueChange Let’s goooo damitt.”
KG also issued a second statement saying he truly loved Minneapolis and wants to help build a championship team for the city.
“No two people love the city more than myself and Glen Taylor and I look forward to trying to work with him to achieve my dream.”
Will the new friendly strategy work? Stay tuned …
The Minnesota Timberwolves are hitting the market … and none other than NBA legend Kevin Garnett is part of an investment group gunning to buy the team.
Billionaire owner Glen Taylor — who has owned the team since 1995 — confirmed Tuesday he’s listening to offers to sell the team … saying he is “seriously considering” all his options, according to The Athletic’s Jon Krawczynski and Shams Charania.
KG — the best T-Wolves player of all time — is part of a group of investors who are “seriously interested” in placing a bid for the team, the report says.
Remember, Garnett absolutely HATES Taylor … and it stems from a promise he made with the late Flip Saunders about taking a front office or ownership role with the team.
KG says the businessman broke his promise after Saunders died by bringing in Tom Thibodeau instead … and brought up his issues with the owner back in April.
“I don’t do business with snakes,” KG told Shams at the time. “I don’t do business with snake motherf***ers. I try not to do business with openly snakes or people who are snake-like.”
Of course, Taylor had intended on putting KG’s #21 up in the rafters at the Target Center … which the hooper rejected until Taylor was no longer owner of the team.
Depending on who gets the team … it may be time for that ceremony after all.
