Wolves owner Glen Taylor trying to make peace with Kevin Garnett?
Kevin Garnett is officially headed to the Basketball Hall of Fame, and Glen Taylor may be using it as an opportunity to thaw out their beef.
Garnett, who was announced on Saturday as a member of the 2020 Hall of Fame class, received congratulations from the Minnesota Timberwolves owner in a statement. Taylor called Garnett’s induction “an honor so well deserved” and said that he “will forever be grateful for [Garnett’s] contributions to the Timberwolves organization.”

While the statement might not seem like much on its face, there is definitely some subtext behind it. Garnett and Taylor have had a feud for the last several years, and the 15-time All-Star’s number has still not been retired by the team, despite him being probably the most important player in franchise history.
Not long ago, Garnett said that he would “love” to remove Taylor as the team’s owner, but this may be Taylor’s way of calling for an end to their bad blood.
