It's hard to fight the hate in all the things that led up to Kevin Garnett reuniting with the Minnesota Timberwolves.
If you look no further than the draft-day deal that landed the 38-year-old back in Minnesota, it's not such a bad thing - albeit a bit selfish for both the team and the player.
Kevin Garnett and Flip Saunders are trying to buy the Minnesota Timberwolves.
Saunders, the Timberwolves general manager and coach, is also trying to re-sign 38-year-old Garnett to a two-year deal, according to the pioneer press.
Isn't this a conflict of interest?

What a week. Here's what we hit on:
The Milwaukee Bucks getting Michael Carter-Williams for Brandon Knight.
First video of Dez Bryant making a catch and it not being a catch. Now video of Dez doing "dastardly" things, but there is no video. Or there is. Or it wasn't a catch. I've gone cross-eyed.
There's a website out there that's claiming there is a video of Dez Bryant doing horrible things going to be released soon.
Kevin Garnett was on the podium Tuesday in lieu of his Minnesota Timberwolves (re)debut.
The 38-year-old future NBA hall of famer will step back on to the Target Center floor wearing his No. 21 Timberwolves jersey for the first time since 2007 at 7 p.m. Wednesday against the Washington Wizards.

A year ago, the Milwaukee Bucks were a dead franchise.
They’re a year or two, and a player, away from becoming a powerhouse in the East – maybe the NBA.
But right now, they’re a sixth seed, looking to upset one of the favorites to go to the NBA Finals, the Chicago Bulls (Game 1: 6 p.m. Saturday on ESPN).

Here are my predictions for the first round of the NBA playoffs. Skipping ahead to the NBA Finals, I think the Warriors beat the Cavs in seven.
