Charley Walters is Dumber than I Thought

I haven't read any of the local columns in a while, due to being stuck in New Jersey for work which was not awesome, so I just saw Charley Walters reaction to the KG trade, which was this:

In exchange for Garnett, the Wolves will receive Al Jefferson, Sebastian Telfair, Gerald Green, Theo Ratliff, Ryan Gomes and two first-round draft picks from the Celtics. If the Wolves got just Jefferson in return, they would have gotten the best of the deal.

That last part has to be a joke, right? Jefferson is a nice, young player who will probably be very good. KG is a top five player over his career, and is probably still top 10 right now. Maybe this is the beginning of the unfortunately inevitable bashing of Garnett that will take place to make idiots feel better about the fact that he's gone.

Or maybe Charley Walters is a stupidhead.

I think you're right, Walters is a 'stupidhead.'

I think he's the guy who "called out" KG for not signing autographs a few days after the trade as well. Think he didn't get along with KG? Typical Twin Cities media reaction though--now that he's gone, he sucks anyway.
