2006-07 - The Year of the Tank continues as Kevin Garnett is out indefinitely with a Shaqury (fake injury). According to yahoo.com:
Vice president of basketball operations Kevin McHale said Wednesday night that the injury has bothered the former MVP for months, and that Garnett and his agent decided it was time to shut it down and seek a second opinion before going forward.
McHale said Garnett will visit doctors in the next day or two and will miss at least two of the team's five remaining games. They will wait to see what the doctors say before Garnett decides if he will return at all this season.
Props to McHale for the creativity, rather than breaking out the typically boring tendonitis (made famous during the Devean George era in LA), he went with "injured right quadriceps."
So for the second year in a row, Garnett gets "injured" toward the end of the season. Here's a question for KG: Why the hell are you still in Minnesota? Seriously, do you wish to finish off your career barely missing the playoffs every season? Unless McHale starts taking genius pills like a crank addict, the Wolves will continue sailing along as the 20th best team in the NBA.
Do yourself a favor KG and demand a trade now! Do you want your legacy to be Peyton Manning's Milkman?
