It seems that any team that is having trouble shooting threes only has to play the Wolves and they break out of the slump. Why can't we defend against the threes?????

Love and Darko were playing hurt in the 4th, maybe even earlier. May have had something to do with the loss. Someone needed to pay more attention to Richardson and Frye. They got twoo many open looks.

Webster looked good. Flynn didn't play much. Telfair never took off his sweats and I don't think Ellington did either. Why???

Officiating seemed to be a bit one-sided - in my slightly biased opinion. Love gets shoved and elbowed and slapped every trip down the floor and he seldom sees the free throw line. What does he need to do to get a little respect form the officials??

What a surprise!!! As I predicted(hard prediction:)) after GSW game and they lost ONCE AGAIN. Love great stats,Darko great stats, Webster,Beasley all great on paper and yet we lose once again. Bunch of young guys playing oldies Nash,Hill,Richardson back to back and they lose. Richardson abused them again whoever was "guarding" him heheeh,guarding yeah right. KLove,MBeasley,Ridnour and Flynn cant guard two "bricks" laying next to each other on the floor. Time for coach to get fired and send some player packing for good veteran guard and some go to guy. Well, nuff said already.

Have we heard this sort of story line before? What, about 15 straight years now? Glen - seriously - sell the team to an owner that knows how to put together a successful basketball organization. Or just fold the team. As is - what is the point of having an ongoing legacy as the worst run so called professional team in all of professional sports? Minnesota sports fans deserve better!! ;-(

Its about Playing Friggin Defense!!!! Almost EVERY three point shot the Suns took was a wide open look. Either they are totally incompetent and don't know what the he$% they are doing or they are flat out lazy. It is time for this coach to act as if he atleast has a pulse and is alive and get after these players. He is friggen laid back that it makes me want to vomit. Are players get murdered by the imposing team and Mr. Rodgers Neighborhood never even gets out of his chair!!!!! He never sticks up for his players and they continue to get ABSOLUTELY no calls. I think it is time to get rid of this clown of a coach and promotr Bill Lambeer! I know Bill will light fire in the players and will light up the officials and would not tolerate wide open three point shots!!!!!!!!!!

Some real bright spots again, and some real duds. Love is getting killed out there, and it's obvious he can't keep this up physically the way he limped off after the game. How bad would we be without him? Well, we may find out. Beasley looks lost out there and his D is terrible. Flynn and Ridnour are grossly under-sized compared to other NBA guards (heck, even Nash dwarfs Ridnour.) They get abused. Ridnour looks like a flea getting shook off on screens. What a wimp. We need a POINT GUARD!!!! Corey Brewer on fire last night. Great effort! Continues to impress with his heart.

Agreed on "Mr. Zen wanna-be" Rambis. He's trying to be the next Phil Jackson clone. Can ya show a little fire, "Superman?"

This part really made me chuckle cause its so true lol but i disagree w/ firing the coach at this time. Rambis deserves heat yes but firing? No.

I know Rambis is trying to be patient with his young guys, but it is time to hold some of them more accountable for their terrible defense on the perimeter. All those wide-open threes are inexcusable. If getting in someone's grill, even it causes a foul - so be it. Maybe the guy will think twice next time before he jacks up a three. It may throw off his timing, if nothing else. We get knocked on our butts and no one retaliates. Nasty fouls are one thing, but a nice hard foul on a guy will make him respect the player that delivers it. Most teams right now know they can do what they want and we won't - or can't - stop them. Once we start to play some decent defense we will start to win again. I can't believe these guys got this far in their career without learning some basic D.

What a dink you are. There isn't even an ounce of cleverness in this endless post, which even you have to know. So, apparently, your pleasure comes from pissing people off, like someone making armpits farts during a movie. Maybe you need a girlfriend. Or maybe just a friend. Or maybe a job. Or maybe a father. Something to make you grow up just a bit.

It's about time the media that promotes sports propaganda to face the facts and inform the bar stool sports junkies that Minnesota is not a major league sports state nor is it a college sports state, Minnesota just doesn't have what it takes to be a great sports state, don't know what it is. However, now that the Twins have signed a Japanese rice farmer to a 9 million dollar deal maybe things will turnaround for them. Sad though, knowing America has to depend on everything to be imported even the people.

No one can blame KLove or Beasely - though Michael got posterized. These two guys need the help that a high draft choice this summer should bring.

Perennial LOSERS!!! So what's new? Should have let them move to New Orleans when they threatened to years ago.

Anyone who thinks that bringing in a veteran guard is going to help is an idiot. So then what - the Wolves go from terrible to slightly less terrible? Honestly, my toddler has more patience than most of these posters. The team has an average age like an English Comp class. If you thought they should be winning this year, that's just dumb. Let the young guys play this year, take their lumps, get another high draft pick and keep building. We will be better off for it, and our future looks way better than the Suns.

Sounds like the same thing we've been hearing since the franchise arrived, "Wait 'til next year!" And next year never seems to get here.
