Want to see growth Kurt? Stop trying to use the triangle offense w/ a half court style team dude! Safe to say I wont be attending anymore games for awhile. Tonight was brutal to watch.

Wow. Powers is kind of a jerk. I'm not surprised Rambis didn't appreciate his "humor."

As strange a character as Kevin McHale was, he always seemed to keep his sense of humor. CC to Mr. Rambis: You'd better learn that self-mockery and self-deprecation are aspects of Midwestern humor. If your emotional range goes only east to west from optimistic to irritated, it's going to be a long, cold road you're walking. Yes, we understand that this is a work in progress. Yes, we understand that tearing the team down to the studs will produce a long, rough stretch. That doesn't mean we have to like what we see and sing kum-bay-ya while smelling the stench of a fetid franchise. You and the players and Mr. Kahn and everyone else in the organization (with the exception, I would guess, of secretaries and interns) make more money than most of us could ever dream of. You also play in a playground that was built with our tax money. You'd better get a sense of humor, my friend, and one that is not based on pastel west coast bromides. Mr. Powers has every right to poke you with a stick. I hope he continues to do so until you find a way to make this team play like something worthy of your salary and our tax money. Over and out.

I'm so glad you wrote this article with so much insight! I mean, you watched the first game... and then you watched their ninth game... Thank God our Minnesota sports writers follow our teams so closely. Someone with so much insight like you and knows what happened in game 2-8 on and off the court is why you're such a credible writer. NEXT!!

I put my T-Wolves jersey on for the first 5 games, but after the last 2 nights, its in the closet until after the football season. I wonder if anyone would think it weird if I wore my Vikings jersey to the T-Wolves games from now on. At some point the rebuilding phase has to end. Please let it be soon...

So its gotten so bad in MN that you're calling for more flopping?? What a joke. Flopping is one of the worst things in the NBA. I mean, do you like seeing Ginobli flopping all over the place and getting phantom calls? Get real. How about actually putting a competitive team on the court instead of resorting to cheating.

The Wolves are actually meeting my expectations so I'm not complaining.

Maybe Flynn can add 12" and become a shooting guard who can defend somebody.
The rest of the team is as big as the are going to get.

You can sum up the entire NBA in two words: Nobody cares
