KG Tanked?

I just stumbled upon this TwinCities.com article, by way of Celtics Blog, where Glen Taylor accuses Kevin Garnett of tanking games. He's definitely entitled to his opinion and I didn't pay that much attention to Minnesota over the last few seasons. Regardless, excluding the lockout season, KG averaged right around 80 games a season. Yes, he played in 76 over each of the last two seasons in Minny. But I thought he fought through injury 2 seasons ago. I just found this criticism a little ridiculous. It goes against the way Garnett carries himself and plays the game. Of course I'd be a little bitter if I were Taylor and saw highlights of Garnett and Sam Cassell knocking off the Spurs. Then again Taylor was in Minnesota and I was not.
