NBA News: Glen Taylor suggested KG "tanked" in his last season at Wolves

Did he tanked on purpose??

MINNEAPOLIS -- Kevin Garnett never had a bigger fan when he played for Minnesota than Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor. But it appears those days are over.

Taylor leveled some rare criticism at his former star on Tuesday, suggesting Garnett "tanked it" when he missed the last five games last year.

Taylor's remarks came after practice, as the Wolves' strong play down the stretch was being discussed. Taylor took exception to a local newspaper columnist who suggested it was time for the Wolves, who are 16-50, to start losing to improve their draft slot.

Happier Days

Taylor said the columnist "said a little bit last year was that we sort of like tanked it. I don't think that. I don't like that so much. I don't like that.

"It was more like KG tanked it. I think the other guys still wanted to play."
