In a recent in-depth interview with Awful Announcing, Garnett spoke on a variety of topics, mainly centered around his segment “Area 21” on TNT. But when discussing his future after that, things turned interesting.
Garnett mused about one day being part of a group that owned his former team in Minnesota, and said he would absolutely be interested in doing that or being part of management.
But there was one caveat to that.
“I don’t want to be partners with Glen [Taylor], and I wouldn’t want to be partners with Glen in Minnesota,” Garnett said. “I would love to be part of a group that buys him out and kind of removes him and go forward.”
Taylor has had mixed reviews among NBA circles in terms of the job he's done owning the team. But Garnett has specific beef with him.
Garnett was once set up to have a prominent role with the Timberwolves organization after his retirement when Flip Saunders was part of the management team. But sometime after Saunders died, Garnett was let go, and that soured his relationship with the owner.
No one can blame Garnett for holding a grudge. No matter what happens, he would be a good fit on an NBA team from a management standpoint.
Hopefully, it's with his former team.
