[Garnett would] rather have his jersey retired in Boston than in Minnesota. He’ll eventually have his number retired with the Timberwolves, too, but he’ll have to wait until management sells the team.

For Minny fans, that's got to feel like a sucker punch. Garnett has been the lone bright spot for the Wolves since basically all their existence (with a few exceptions of course). While they'll still get the satisfaction of having his number in the rafters one day, it'll have to wait until after Boston gets their moment.
