Thursday's A.M. Hot Clicks: Ali Larter; Kevin Garnett Suits Up In Minnesota
KG Comes Home
Kevin Garnett, who spent 12 seasons with the Timberwolves (and holds franchise records for games played, minutes played, points, field goals, field goal attempts, free throws, free throw attempts, offensive rebounds, defensive rebounds, assists, steals and blocks), played his first game with Minnesota since being reacquired at the trade deadline. The night included a memorable tribute video (LeBron James was impressed) and some serious nerves from the T-Wolves players, who started the game shooting 0-for-9. The team calmed down and cruised to a 97-77 victory over the Wizards. All in all, it was a great night for the Timberwolves, their fans and this random shirtless guy.
Rocky 7 Plot
The synopsis for the new Rocky movie has leaked and the film doesn't look that bad. In a nutshell, he reluctantly trains Apollo Creed's son while battling some type of sickness (or as they call it, "an opponent more deadly than any he faced in the ring."). It also features Phylicia Rashad (a.k.a. - Clair Huxtable). One thing we can guarantee: It won't be the worst sports movie of the year.
