SAW KG!

Postby kginla2006 on Thu Jul 19, 2007 11:13 pm

Thought I'd let you guys know I saw kg tongiht at the coutnrywide tennis tourny at ucla. I waited outside the courts for him for awhile, wearing a Lakers t shirt, once the Blake match was done. And there he was as he passed right by me and almost no one noticed. I yelled to Kg come to la come to la man come on. he didnt answer. then some woman next to me yells "kg ya minnnnnnesottta". He looks backa t her and says "ya, thats what up!" i=i was definitely pissed so i tracked him down about 5 minutes later with barely anyone around him. I say from about 2 feet away, come on kg come to the lakers man we need you, we love you man. NO ANSWER! He barely acknowledged me and so as he's walking to his car i say think about it man think about it! and there it is my KG encounter. He's still a great guy though EVEN though it appears he doesnt want to leave minni. dont believe me? heres a pic i took of him walking by me

EDIT: Thank you Massacre for the photo help

He's not gonna say anything related to the Lakers or what ever team he knows is courting him.

Good to hear from some people with actual encounters or knowledge from KG himself, thanks. This information isn't appeasing one bit. Although I don't see why any NBA player would openly acknowledge and discuss a potential trade with a stranger, I also don't see the player acknowledging one person (Minny fan) and not the other (Laker fan). So it kinda stinks, and it really doesn't seem like he favors or even wants to come to LA, if he did he'd show more enthusiasm for LA and less for Minny, wouldn't he? From this, I strongly doubt he comes to LA. I know I'm making a generalization, but after reading what happened on the jumbotron and now this, either he has way too much class and dedication to the T'Wolves or he just seriously doesn't care about being traded as much as we think or hope he does.

he probally doesnt want to come to LA bc he's tired of crazy fans hunting him down just to beg him to come to the Lakers.

Why would knowing that some fan wants you in another city make you NOT want to go somewhere? If I were a player, and a fan told me they wanted me in their hometown, I wouldn't necessarily pack my bags and want to go there, but I wouldn't be turned off by the idea and not want to go.

I can't understand why people have to approach celebrities and bother them.

Whenever I see a celeb I always leave them alone and respect their time for themselves.


Guess its just me.

Thought so. But since westcoast had similar feelings, I wasn't too sure.

Maybe put it in the KG thread.

May I ask, why does Garnett keep appearing at UCLA for these random games (is there a reason, or just because he's here and those are his interests)?

ok its one thing to go up to them and ask them for a autograph or to say whats up. but in your case you said some thing to him, he ignored you, which clearly means he doesnt want to hear about the Lakers or he doesnt want to be bothered. But someone says something, and they get a response, so you decide to hunt down KG just to beg him to come to LA.

Probably owns house in Malibu and works out at UCLA. A lot of NBA players go to UCLA to play during the summer. Its not a big deal.
