Garnett purchases 1000 tickets as a token of appreciation for the Timberwolves fans’ welcome of his return to the team.

James, Garnett, Irving, and Williams wear the black shirts with white text during the pre-game warmups for the Nets-Cavs clash, after Bulls guard Derrick Rose wore the same shirt in a Saturday pre-game warmup in solidarity for Garner. Nets guard Jarrett Jack, who played for the Cavs last season and says he supplied the Cavs players with the shirts after he heard James was looking for them:
I just heard people’s opinion on the topic, and I know [the Cavaliers] are on the road, this is the place where it happened, so if they wanted to be a part of the cause or make a statement without actually necessarily saying any words, I definitely extended the invitation…I know us as a team we’re gonna go out and try to make a stance and show that we’re a team that’s not with prejudice. We want to have tolerance for everybody.
Garnett is sued by his neighbor for an illegal renovation. According to the suit, Garnett started the construction project on his $9.5 million mega-mansion back in 2013 but never got the correct permits. The neighbor claims that Garnett lied to the city about the project, and that Garnett’s renovations are blocking his view. The neighbor is suing for damages and he wants Garnett to remove the obstructions.
