I want Kevin McHale fired. I can coach the Timberwolves better than him.

The Timberwolves need a new stadium. Target Center is too old and the team can't compete with the high quality franchises. Downtown Minneapolis businesses should be taxed to pay for the new arena, which should have more premium seatings and restaurants and private suites so the Wolves owners can realize higher profit margins and thus enticing elite players to come to Minnesota to play. The new arena would provide new jobs and opportunity downtown to put people to work so they can provide for their children's education. The healthy cycle of employment would ensue. The children must be thought of.

Rough night for the Wolves. Couldn't shoot or rebound in the second half and Rash(w)eed killed em at the end.
And those refs. Terrible. Touch fouls ad nauseum against MN and Detroit could do nothing wrong. That's the NBA for you.

of course the pistons have technical foul walace who complains about everything and will swear at the refs and they didn't want to deal with it. and whoever says they are jesse ventura needs to shut the F*** up and go back to the WWE. You're never touching anything to do with minnesota again. and mchale is doing a great job coaching and i think taylor goes to him and says that is the only job for him in the organization. I know i was a basher of mchale when he was vp but it now looks like he knew what he was doing when he made the trades. doesn't it. and tiffany when you read this i don't want to hear about mccants anymore he will not play for the twolves again and will be lucky to get a lower level exepction contract offer this offseason because the wolves will not exersice his contract and it looks like they will not trade him. because o my NOBODY WANTS HIM

it tells us that iverson is a team killer. the only team i think he may be able to go to and win would be boston but then the question will be asked how much can the big three take before enough is enough

nah,they dont help him on the offensive end,and plus he was injured,and michael curry changed the line up,so its gonna take time to adjust to all the changes

Tiffany - you are truly clueless.
Sorry, but Iverson is overrated, way past his prime. I know I was not alone in thinking that Iverson for Billups was a very foolish move for Detroit. Watch either team now and this truth is obvious.

And by the way, how can you help A.I. on offense when you can't touch the ball because he is always shooting it (and missing)?

nah,the piston by far made the best trade,they got one of the best players in the league,a good shooter,a good 3 point shooter,the second fastest in the league,and the they traded billups to the nuggets because they think that rodney stuckey can be his replacement,nah,allen is the one who can bring them to a title,if not then the celtics will take it,but overall,allen is not overrated or,selfish,and he still got it for a man his age

allen is overrated and a ball hog, that was the biggest knock on this trade was that rip was gonna be running is a## off around screens and to get open just to watch iverson throwing up some hideous shot. nuggets got the best of this deal and i think it could take them to the second round this year

boy,you crazy,the pistons got the better of the trade,they got one of the best players in the league,and he does'nt throw up hideous shots,your one of few people to say allen is overrated,and chauncey aint bringing them sh!t,they gonna go to the first round,and thats it

if your talking about the pistons leaving in the first round you are right but look at denvers record after the trade and look at detroits record after the trade and then you'll see that i am right. and what makes my point even more is that rasheed and iverson are both in contract years and they still cant seem to win

actually,i heard that if allen takes them to the finals then he stays,but if not he gets traded,which i hope.cuz i dont like him on that hideous team

allen is in the last year of his contract so if he takes them to the finals then maybe they resign him but the pistons want Lebron. even though they will never get him when/if he hits free agency.
