Minnesota Timberwolves General Manager Kevin McHale came under fire today when it was learned that Kevin Garnett, traded one day before the I-35 bridge collapse to the Boston Celtics, spent all his time off court standing in the Mississippi holding the bridge over his head.
“We knew he carried the team,” said a Minnesota Fire Department member, “I’m not surprised he carried the bridge too.”
“Unless he was on the court he was under that bridge bearing the weight,” said teammate Rickey Davis.
McHale defended the trade saying it strengthened his bench, while weakening the cities infrastructure. The only thing Al Jefferson, the third year forward, who was the key player the Timberwolves acquired in the trade, has held up is the line at Wendy’s.
Garnett was unavailable for comment, already having positioned himself in the Charles River holding up the Longfellow Bridge.
