NOTE FROM THE UNDERGROUND
Kelli Anderson
November 10, 1997
Kevin Garnett and Stephon Marbury (right) are unhappy that the Timberwolves didn't re-sign their pal Dean Garrett (who decamped to the Nuggets as a free agent). Garnett and Marbury are going to be really sore if Garrett's replacements at center don't measure up. So it might behoove Stanley Roberts and Paul Grant to take note of how Garrett thrived in an offense that doesn't run plays for the pivotman: By trailing point guard Marbury on his forays into the paint, Garrett picked up dishes and misses—with the result that 38.1% of his field goals came on dunks.
