T’Wolves rookie Rick Rickert put a move on Kevin Garnett at an informal practice the other day, and scored on KG. According to Charley Walters of the St. Paul Pioneer Press, Garnett then punched him in the face.
I think those are outstanding leadership skills for the MVP to be displaying. That will really encourage the rookies on the team. You always want to send a message to the rookies that says, “If you try to get better, and you make some progress, and you score on me, I will beat the hell out of you.” Positive reinforcement at its best.
Rickert suffered a chipped tooth and needed seven stitches.
