I’m not sorry to see KG leave the Wolves, not because he isn’t a great player that I very much like, but because I would like to see him get the chance to play for a championship. KG will not ever be considered one of the all-time greats, he was never going to be considered a killer in the clutch like Jordan, but he never stopped playing hard even when the team around him was markedly inferior.
Some of the media doesn’t seem to understand that Minnesota fans like KG so much that they don’t resent his leaving at all. It would be nice if Kevin McHale hadn’t been a complete disaster as a general manager and put a competitive team on the floor, but it didn’t work out that way. It won’t be hard at all to cheer him on as a Celtic.
