KG comes home: Top tweets

Today brought news that would've been hard to believe as recently as 48 hours ago: Kevin Garnett, without question the greatest player in Timberwolves history, is coming back to Minnesota.

As credible rumors about KG's homecoming began to swirl last night, folks took to Twitter to reminisce about their favorite Garnett memories... and, of course, joke about the Minnesota sports community's obsession with "getting the band back together." (Consider 2010 Randy Moss and 2015 Torii Hunter, to take two examples.)

Backstory -- Wolves, Nets discussing trade to bring Kevin Garnett back to Minnesota

It certainly made for an entertaining morning and early afternoon on Twitter, even if reacquiring a 38-year-old KG in the midst of his 20th NBA season probably won't translate to much on-court success.

Without further ado, here are the most entertaining tweets we saw:

10. Who can forget this KG press conference from the team's last playoff run (2004), which was also his MVP season?9. And if you think 2004 was a long time ago...8. When your heart says yes but your head says no:7. Then again, Minnesota teams and fans are all about reunion tours:6. And on that note:5. Eight years later, it's easy to forget how much the Timberwolves won with KG:4. Boring Joe Mauer offered KG a place to stay...3 ... though this is probably more realistic:2. Here's the tweet that officially ended the suspense:1. Finally, how awesome would this be?-- Photo credit: Karlee Kanz on Twitter
