We're No. 1! We're No. 1! Actually, I think the fact that the Timberwolves set a remarkable franchise record Wednesday night means they're No.

Still say Kahn is nothing more than a "con" man who will always say wait until next year. What a dreadful organization - Thank God Taylor did not buy the Vikes

the fact that there's only one comment, tells you the interest in Timberwolves basketball.

Am I the only person who has noticed the seething anger and contempt for this team beneath every comment Al Jefferson makes? Now don't misunderstand me -- I'm not saying he seems angry and contemptuous of his fellow players. That's far from the truth. But he seems utterly frustrated with what Mr. Kahn and Mr. Rambis have done to what he believed was a team with good potential and a coach he enjoyed. Rightly or wrongly, it is obvious that he wants out of this mess. And, frankly, who can blame him? I think the excitement that many of us had for Mr. Kahn's maniacal makeover and straight talking ways is souring as quickly and as totally as Mr. Jefferson's. I went and saw them in Portland, and I don't think I've seen too many more poorly constructed rosters than this one. No one fits with anyone else. And, yes, there are no leaders.

Folks, you all need to be patient. A new coaching staff, new players, and new system...these are not an easy combination to work with. If your expectations are too high, your disappointment will also be exponentially high as well. So, take a deep breathe and watch them progress with that infamous triangle system. Although, it is only a half of the equation, but Rambis and his coaching staff will surely get them there.
After all, no one said NBA was going to be easy...

No one wants to admit this team has been a failure and maybe they will get slightly better, but this franchise has been a complete bust right from the start. The NBA should just fold this team and the Nets at the end of the season and reduce the total number of teams in the league. The Wolves have been the door mat of the league with no real hope of improving. Too bad because Minnesota fans have been more than patient waiting for something competitive to evolve and deserve better than what this organization always seems to produce.

Sounds like a good idea but how will that fit into the Nets and Brooklyn's plan for the future?

"New Jersey Nets Win Big Court Case"

(AP) New York's top court ruled Tuesday that the state can use eminent domain to force homeowners and businesses to sell their properties for a massive development in Brooklyn that includes a new arena for the New Jersey Nets.

In a 6-1 ruling Tuesday, the Court of Appeals said the Empire State Development Corp.'s finding that the area was blighted was enough to justify taking the land.

A group of tenants and owners claim the seizure is unconstitutional. They argue that developer Bruce Ratner's proposed $4.9 billion, 22-acre Atlantic Yards project mainly enriches private interests, while the state constitution requires public use for taking land......

......In a prepared statement, Ratner said construction will continue, with the intent that the Nets will play ball there in the 2011-2012 season.
