MEET KEVIN GARNETT

Kevin Garnett of the Minnesota Timberwolves is Mr. Everything. The forward led the T-wolves in scoring (20.8 points per game), rebounds (10.4) and blocks (1.77) last season. Kevin is just as hot in the 1999-2000 season. He is currently averaging 21.3 points per game.

Now Kevin, age 23, wants an NBA title. "I've become hungrier about wanting to win," says Kevin.

Mr. Everything is ready to take a big bite out of the competition this season.

WHAT'S THE CALL?

GATE GAFFE

SAMMY SNOWFLAKE IS BLAZING down the mountain in a youth slalom skiing race. He is winning by 30 seconds.

Sammy has carved around all but one gate. He hits a patch of ice and skids past it! Sammy stops hard. He turns around and sidesteps back up the hill. He skis around the final gate and glides across the finish line.

You are the official. Is Sammy the winner?

ANSWER: Yes. A skier may climb back up the course to go through a gate he or she missed.
