Kevin Garnett says Glen Taylor doesn't know (bleep) about basketball

Kevin Garnett criticized Jimmy Butler and management for the mess in Minnesota but didn’t mince words for owner Glen Taylor. More

The shooting guard has been trying to force through a trade all summer and did not play in any pre-season matches.

As for where Thibodeau stands in all this, Taylor says his job is safe despite the apparent team turmoil and he isn't coaching for his job. On one hand, they know that they're going to need someone like Jimmy Butler if they want to survive and compete at a high level in the dog-eat-dog world of the Western Conference.

"The latest is he is going to be going to practice every day, which he has been, and plans to play in games", Taylor said. But he told Awful Announcing past year: "I don't want to be partners with Glen, and I wouldn't want to be partners with Glen in Minnesota". I totally get it.

"He needs to do that more; sit down, take the load off and trust your guys to get a W".

"Initially, when Butler told he wanted to leave, you know Tom did everything he could to try to keep Jimmy here and I understand that".

Nikki Haley: ‘Palestine’ is not a state
Ambassador Gillian Bird told the General Assembly. "The Palestinians are not a UN Member State or any state at all". The partially-recognized state will lead the UN-based coalition of developing nations starting in January 2019.

"Thibs brought him here so that he would stay here".

"A valued source informs me the Clippers could've had Jimmy Butler, but his antics and attitude impelled them to sever talks", Vecsey wrote, before quoting the source. If past years are any indication, we're in for yet another salvo of activity leading up to the league's trade deadline in early February.

Taylor was also asked whether he's still happy he hired Thibodeau in 2016.

"He is a good coach and I have faith in him".
