B4 Pantagraph Wednesday, August 1, 2007 www.pantagraph.com Garnett sees Boston as his best shot at winning ring Celtics part with five players, two draft picks to land 10-time All-Star ! n I " 4 though that it was a difficult one," said Wolves owner Glen Taylor, who made it clear that Garnett did not request a trade. The Garnett trade eclipses the latest one involving an NBA star, Allen Iverson. Philadelphia traded the guard and Ivan McFarlin to Denver last Dec. 19 for Andre Miller, Joe Smith and two first-round draft choices. "This is a tremendous day," said a smiling Pierce, who had been frustrated for years as the sole star on a rebuilding team. "I feel like a rookie again." The key to the deal for Minnesota is Jefferson, whom the Celtics were reluctant to part with. He had a breakout season in 2006-07, his third with Boston, when he averaged 16 points and 11 rebounds after struggling with injuries. He joins a youth movement in Minnesota, which drafted forward Corey Brewer from Florida. tions Kevin McHale. But Ainge cautioned that it's much too early to equate the two trios. "These guys will never be the Big Three until they win" a championship, he said. Garnett signed a multi-year extension Ainge wouldn't say how long. He had one year plus an option year remaining on his contract. The Timberwolves get the Celtics' first-round pick in 2009, unless it is among the top three, and a return of Minnesota's conditional first-round draft pick obtained in January 2006 when they sent Ricky Davis to the Timberwolves for Wally Szczerbiak. The previous biggest NBA trade for one player came in 1999, when Houston obtained Scottie Pippen from Portland for six players. "I'm confident I made the right decision here, even By Howard Ulman ASSOCIATED PRESS BOSTON Kevin Garnett gives Boston a new Big Three that brings the Celtics much closer to what their old Big Three delivered an NBA title. . The Celtics, who have 16 championships but have gone without one for more than two decades, obtained the former MVP and 10-time All-Star on Tuesday in a 7-for-1 deal the NBAs biggest trade for one player. Boston sent the Minnesota Timberwolves forwards Al Jefferson, Ryan Gomes and Gerald Green, guard Sebastian Telfair and center Theo Ratliff, two first-round draft picks and cash considerations. Besides Ratliff, 34, the other four are 24 or younger. With Paul Pierce and Ray Allen already on the roster, the Celtics have been transformed from a promising collection of youngsters who had the NBAs second-worst record last season into an instant contender in the mediocre Eastern Conference. "This is probably my best opportunity at winning a ring," Garnett said. "It was a no-brain-er." The Celtics won their last championship, the third with the original Big Three of Larry Bird, Kevin McHale and Robert Parish, in 1986. Two members of that club orchestrated Tuesday's blockbuster trade Celtics executive director of basketball operations Danny Ainge and Timberwolves vice president of basketball opera Associated PressCHARLES KRUPA New Celtics forward Kevin Garnett, center, stands with forward Paul Pierce, left, and guard Ray Allen during a news conference Tuesday in Boston.

David Beckham's left ankle kept him, sidelined from the Los Angeles Galaxy's game against FC Dallas in the SuperLiga tournament Tuesday night in Dallas, but the injury hasn't hurt Major League Soccer's bottom line. Like nearly all of the Galaxy's road games through the end of this season, this match was sold out, an MLS rarity in the pre-Beckham era. "As much as we are benefiting, there are markets across the country that are benefiting," said Alexi Lalas, the Galaxy's president and general manager. "This is a win-win situation for everybody." Except for fans. Word of Beckham's no-show came too late to affect ticket sales in Dallas. The stadium was about two-thirds full, and fans expressed frustration with Beckham's nonappearance. "My daughter has a broken ankle and she sat in the car and made it up here for the game," said Jane Kobren, who drove more than 220 miles from Austin with her family. Preston Sledge, who brought his son and a friend of his son's to the game, said they bought tickets because Beckham was expected to play. "We weren't going to waste the tickets, but it was a big disappointment. There was a lot of hype to get people here," he said. League officials acknowledge that Beckham's sputtering start in the United States is not the fairy-tale beginning they envisioned. But they stress his five-year commitment to MLS. ESPN2 to air Galaxy game Beckham's potential debut for the Los Angeles Galaxy in a Major League Soccer game has been picked up by ESPN2. The network will televise Sunday's match at Toronto FC. Beckham has been sidelined by a left ankle injury, and his status for Sunday's game has yet to be determined. Beckham made his Galaxy debut July 21, playing 16 minutes in an exhibition against Chelsea. Douglas, Sun outshine Sky ASSOCIATED PRESS UNCASVILLE, Conn.
