Kevin Garnett's beef with the "snake-like" Wolves owner got even worse without Flip Saunders around

BEEF HISTORY NEEDS YOUR HELP ok maybe that’s dramatic but not far off. It’s nominated for a Webby Award and if you have a minute to vote, we’d appreciate you endlessly:
Kevin Garnett loves Minnesota. That's where he spent most of his legendary playing career, and he still loves the city, the fans, and many of his former teammates. But from the time Garnett became a Timberwolf until well after he retired, one man owned the franchise, and Kevin Garnett does not like that man. At all.
Glen Taylor is a billionaire, one of Minnesota's richest people. He bought the Wolves in the early '90s, and brought in the regime that made the Wolves relevant, including Garnett and his first, beloved head coach, Flip Saunders.
But making the Wolves "relevant" wasn't really enough with a generational talent like Garnett on board. This episode of Beef History explains how Taylor failed his superstar employee, disparaged him after he departed, and ended up alienating one of the greatest pro athletes in Minnesota history. And just when a reunion and happy ending seemed possible, Garnett and Taylor lost a crucial moderating presence with the tragic death of Flip Saunders.

  • What I always remember no mater -how obnoxious the players can sometimes be in this social media age- is that the owners are almost always a whole new level of scum. Kevine Garnett was manna from heaven for a franchise like the 'wolves and they never missed a chance to botch their relationship with him. Unbelievable.

  • Joe Smith actually was good at that time. He career average was about 15 ppg and 8 rpg and 1 block per game and shot nearly 80% from the line in more than 30 minutes of action per game. He just wasn't franchise wrecking good.

  • Maybe flip. Cancer from the government, hear me out, Iran-Contra flooded America streets only hitting black neighborhoods Witchwood cause a rift between the African American and white neighborhoods Witchwood divide a common enemy against the military industrial complex. And war.Some soldiers didn't even know about the Holocaust until after the war RIP Aaron Hillel Swartz. Reddit creator suicided According to fam&friends Epstein fashion. Just before trial facing 3 years and loads of restitution homes for copying public domain records from a college account that all existed on the internet anyways but he wanted to put in one website for free. every website charged, found FBI Looking into him. Hung. All for knowledge us taxpayers funded, free scientific journals better in the public domain and other public domain documents all in one space for free information. it's like 1984 scary . as if they know that the public and their frustrations and they are doing everyday thing they can to report on these things briefly give me 15 minutes for the people who Might not have been watching the news at that moment. how many times have you learned something about our government and how they did something really horrible recently where in the past half century. the Gulf of Tonkin tricked American soldiers into going to Vietnam , Iran-Contra had a certain pocket flooding the streets with cocaine, MK Ultra . probably some guy at the top of the classification chain in 1 sector of government who was Case Handler and has since worked their way up and like Emperor Palpatine telling people what you want them to hear. We need transparency in these Metal Management career bureaucrats who advised people to do what would benefit whatever their particular goal is as opposed to the americans greater good of our economy meaning and economic equality government I'm sorry I thought this was America? -Randy. the two party system is so they can have their cake(war) and eat it too (Democrat who opposes War)- Eric Cartman. I shouldn't be afraid to make a nonviolent & or non slanderous statement. But I am and that is a clear look in the mirror, the American has now entered the beginning stage of job versus human population ratio. And everyone seems to have middle management Authority while most smart decent upstanding human beings that are smart and well-informed that can't complain because they can't compete with the dollars of the corrupted faction within our government. and people are so focused on their jobs and tired when they get back and stressed for trying to provide that they don't really cared about politics. But I guess like alcoholics our democracy had to hit rock bottom first. I mean we already have a fully automated Greenhouse for growing crops using Hydroponics Robotics and 3D lasers where they can plant the seed germinated transfer feed it and water it with exact nutrients which would eliminate pesticide runoff and River pollution.using less land, tapping into the water table and the indoor climate controlled environment would allow 365 24/7 groom farming conditions and we also wouldn't have so much wasted water pumped up from the water table, and when the water table get slower there's less water pressure on those Caverns and when we pump out so much the fissures and cracks in Earth's crust causing earthquakes and for earthquake-prone environments that's not a good thing. I learned all that from Reddit and published articles that I was interested in and one side is collected all this information I stepped back and Sean as a whole and you didn't like what I see and now I find out that the original creator of Reddit was suspiciously murdered in a case I feel more compelling than the Jeffrey Epstein case which just goes to show you their killing their own depraved people on the inside and they're killing everybody else to. all he was trying to do was make a website where people can access information that's in the public domain and even have it alleged aspirations to run for president and he was someone had an office at Harvard and two other schools when he was suicided according to both his parents his wife and brothers. If you can wrap your head around the Epstein cover up then you can certainly see why corporations who have been people in the eyes of the law since 15 or 14th Amendment to the Constitution of the United States, I don't see how they can act as decent upstanding citizens when they're legally bound to make the highest profit for their shareholders. Putting a corporation's best interest above the interest in self preservation of the human race. they likely killed this guy and if I'm found dead they likely killed me too for saying this and telling people around the internet something that they might not have had time or been home to watch the news on the day of that particular pivotal White Collar privileged white male children to disagree with political policy was murdered for trying to somewhere in Europe that can plant the seed germinated even moderate in existence or reference This is getting really real. don't know what conspiracies are false, which ones have been proven to be true yet remain out of the public eye like the Gulf of Tonkin, Iran-Contra, Inkay Ultra, The cia's Proposal 2 come in false flag terrorist attacks and blame it on Fidel Castro in order to go to Garner Sympathy for the invasion of Cuba and the military industrial complex. I just know that we've been in two record-breaking long Wars, 18 and 20 years , neither of which us to be there. And I just want to say a quick prayer for all the service members who have served, particularly for those who have been mistreated. And I'm sure that's a lot of you. my American countrymen and the find folks who serve on Military that I'm so proud of. May God have mercy on us all. references is getting really real. don't know what conspiracies are false, which ones have been proven to be true yet remain out of the public eye like the Gulf of Tonkin, Iran-Contra, Inkay Ultra, The cia's Proposal 2 come in false flag terrorist attacks and blame it on Fidel Castro in order to go to Garner Sympathy for the invasion of Cuba and the military industrial complex.

If I'm die it wasn't due to anything of my own free volition. there has been helicopters around my area and it's past 11 which I thought was they weren't allowed to do via a city ordinance and cops( who knows if they truly are cops) creeping Through the Alley got me making this following declaration. that I love life and never want it to end. I'm particularly not ruling it out but I have been telling ppl this. I live in Columbus Indiana so if you see my name in the obituary tell my story hand let that serve as a warning any Americans proud of what our nation was & can still be.

The players available in those slots in the draft in those years weren't particularly good. Still, something is better than nothing.

  • 0:44 of course they make way more money than the players. That’s the way it works in the world. The workers, or in this case players, make a LOT less money than the owners/top execs, but they still make a ton of money just to play a sport. Yes they do bring in a lot of money for their franchises, but I would argue that the people who work at places like Amazon or Wal Mart also bring in a lot of money for the company they work for, yet they don’t make near as much as athletes do. So....yeah, of course owners make a lot more than the players. It’s how it works for everyone else. Except the athletes still get a pampered lifestyle
