Default Some believe Garnett never headed anywhere but Boston

Huh .... sucks if your a Bulls fan because so many had their hopes up that KG was going to land in Chi-town as a Bull, but it sounds as though all along that the only option for McHale was to help out his buddy Danny Ainge.

The thing is, there's a wide-spread belief around the league that the Bulls never had a chance. Garnett was either staying in Minnesota or going to Boston, because Timberwolves GM Kevin McHale played for the Celtics and wanted to hook up his good friend, Boston boss Danny Ainge.

The first person I heard suggest this theory is from Minneapolis and spent a number of years following the Timberwolves. There are also believers at the Berto Center.

"I think anyone in the league would tell you it was a done deal with Boston," said one agent who's dealt frequently with the Timberwolves.
