Mr. Rambis is an assistant coach, Jonny Flynn is a playground or AAU guard, Darko is as stubborn and, apparently, as intelligent, as a mule, and Mr. Kahn has gradually had his grand chess game revealed as a flashy strategy in futile search of an end game.

Mr. Taylor, it appears that you have made yet another mistake in your attempts to shape a basketball franchise. I'm really sorry to say that, because I, personally, like Kahn's oily stye, and you seem like a genuinely nice man. But what we've tried hasn't worked. Now comes the painful unraveling. Flynn is Foye, Rambis is an inverted Wittman, and Darko is Rasho's cowardly little brother. Maybe Wes has a chance, but he keeps spinning his wheels. Love is polishing his resume. And Beasley needs to have something change, though I don't know what.

Lastly, who'd a thunk that we would be watching an sports version of "Waiting for Godot" during this year of our purported "great leap forward"?

This whole thing is a disaster.

Lousy game, no effort. It looked like a lot of players were suffering from having the medical condition known as a "broken giveashit".

Flynn can't check anyone, is the slowest guard on the floor, and is careless with the ball. Darko is just mailing it in, and refuses to move his feet, or jump. Beasley is only interested if the shots are falling and if he is getting some calls. Johnson is very up and down, 17 points one game, and then three or four games of under 10 points. Nobody off the bench is doing much of anything to help.

The season cannot finish too early. These guys have to be better than they are showing. It was only last week when they hammered NO and Utah in successive games. Which two game stretch is the "real" team?

After the game, the only stat I was interested in was knowing how many games are left to suffer through.

I see a couple other teams have surpassed us, yet again, for the ping pong lotto. We can't even lose right!

Darko= yuck. What a slug and a wussy. Good thing we signed him to an extended contract rather than let him slink home to Europe.

Flynn= terrible. Buy out time. No one is interested. If Mr. Taylor is OK with this "business strategy" every year, that's his deal. Hopefully he'll tire of it eventually.

Watching Jefferson operate, a true post player, its baffling that they couldn't find a way to play he and Love on the floor. Love covers a lot of floor and is NOT a good post player.
Oh... but the Wolves had to prepare for their "running style." LOL!! He also looks to be in MUCH better shape than he was when in MN. Our players look like they've never seen a gym. Some basic training regimens might be a good place to start??

Beasley= still intriguing. Its obvious he needs some skilled, experienced players around him and more of a defined role. The keep trying to have him create off the dribble from the top of the 3 point line. He's 6'10"!! Not how you want to play someone like that with his athletic ability. Slash and score facilitated by a quality point guard is needed.

Wes= I like his potential, but totally inconsistent. Not as polished as hoped for given his (now) rare 4 year college career. I suspect this STUPID offense is holding everyone back. All on you Rambis.

Rambis= Buh-bye.

If anyone out there in the Wolves office is listening, consider these three facts:

1. Three people bother to post.

2. All three are consistent fans who tend to write reasonable posts based on actually having watched the games.

3. All three are ready to throw up at what they are seeing. And these are your "good" fans.

So, guys, watcha gonna do? And if you think the small sample size negates the significance of the opinions, take a cruise over to canishoopus and listen to a bundle of other committed fans doing their best not to puke on every aspect of this sorry franchise.

Proof positive. MN fans are the worst, bandwagon jumping, sniveling, pompous, and dumb fans in all sports. The laughingstock of every other league, pro and college, bar none.
