Al Jefferson has the ugliest shot Ive seen in the past 40 years. In fact, he would make a wonderful shot putter for the Olympics <.< Plus teh guy refuses to any kind of defense whatsoever. IDK, it may be time to trade him for a player that fits Rambis's system cause Big Al looks lost. Sure he scored 24 points but he gave up 50.

Jefferson better start playing D, otherwise he'll be getting benched, I hope this is just him getting use to the speed of the game, because he can't defend or box out at all. We need K Love back, plus what's with Flynn trying to do too much at times? He sure as hell doesn't look like CP3 or even TJ Ford out there, plus Sessions can't shoot worth a lick, I wish Rambis was here before Kahn started to make his moves, the roster he has assembled is absolutely awful, and what's with Brewer taking 21 shots in a game? Are you kidding me Rambis, you want that dude taking almost twice as many shots as everybody else, you'll never win any games with him taking that many shots, like I said we need Love back, bad, just take half of those shots away from Brewer and give them to Love and we might just have a win. Love the energy he brings, but that dude need to lay off the shots, especially at end of games, are you telling me Rambis, that Brewer was your best 3 point option with 10 seconds left, I hope you get better at play calling as the season progresses.

"Big Al" ain't so big and gets knocked around inside like crazy now with his bad knee and 30 pounds lighter. He looks like he needs his minutes CUT drastically. Too much too soon on that knee. Ryan Gomes looked good and could at least finish around the hoop and seems to have a good b-ball IQ. Flynn is out of control and cost us some points out there last night. Missed dunks by point guards are embarrassing on more than one level. Brewer is a twig with an ugly shot, but love the effort at least. Most glaring were the size mis-matches last night. But, MN has drafted and traded for too-skinny mama's boys for years that get thrown around like rag dolls. How can awful teams like the Clippers at least manage to have SOME level of respectability down low? Kahn before the coach was another HORRIBLE move by the Boy's Club on 1st Ave. It will take a couple more years to un-do that blunder. Rambis is doing a helluva job with an AWFUL, AWFUL roster.

I was at the game last night and see the Clippers get their first victory was exciting. The Wolves need a guard who can shoot from the outside. AI anyone?

Ramon Sessions look great replacing ineffective rookie Jonny Flynn. Ramon seems like a way better option at the point.

And to hear Wolves fans blast big Al is pretty hilarious. Without him you would of lost by 30. He was awesome.

The Clips had no answer for the big Eastern European who was knocking down outside shots all night.
