Kevin Garnett won’t hesitate to throw his teammates’ phones in the toilet.
One of the feel good stories of the 2015 NBA trade deadline is the return of Kevin Garnett to the Minnesota Timberwolves. It is a move for the sentimental fans as Garnett likely prepares to retire in Minnesota and move on to the next phase of his career.

Of course this is a feel good story for the fans, not necessarily Garnett’s new Timberwolves teammates. When Garnett started in the NBA, cell phones weren’t the all-in-one device they’ve become now.
Needless to say, Garnett doesn’t see the need for all the constant social media updates and usage, and he won’t tolerate his teammates being distracted by things outside the locker room. And Garnett will go to extreme measures to enforce them.
"“As one of our veteran guys told our young guys yesterday, ‘Hey, listen, when KG walks in the locker room your phones better be tucked away, because if they’re not, they’re going to get thrown in the toilet on game night,’ ” Saunders noted.“He changed their culture,” Saunders said of Garnett’s time with the Boston Celtics. “Doc (Rivers) told me that. They had veteran players and everything else, but when he went in the locker room, the music was cut off and everything.”"
Looks like Minnesota could be losing some iPhones over the last several weeks of the season.
