For someone who doesn't care about the Timberwolves, is there a Timberwolves article you haven't commented on (took you less than 40 minutes from this article appearing and you posting)?

Any way we can trade the Wolves for a new Viking stadium? No doubt the entire landscape of professional sports in Minnesota would be better off.

According to Forbes Magazine, the Timberwolves are worth around $300 million. You'd need $5-600 million more.

The roster is set, they don't have enough minutes to give out to any other players.

When I hear Rambis or Kahn talk about the transformation, I hear phrases like "more athletic", "better outside shooting", etc., but I am starting to wonder if maybe the message I should be hearing isn't "cheaper" and "shorter contract".

While it is true that the Wolves have turned over the roster and now have a bunch of rangy 6'7" guys who should be decent shooters, it is also true that almost every move has also involved the Wolve's taking on less salary than they gave. Exhibit A: Jefferson for two bags of peanuts, a Coke, and a salted nut roll. Exhibit B: Sessions and Hollins for two guys who were supposed to get cut (pre-Flynn diagnosis) and some used basketballs. Exhibit C: Babbitt and Gomes for Webster and a used 1970 AMC Gremlin.

I would love to see the Wolves do well, and I applaud Kahn for being willing to take a chance, but I am starting to wonder if this really isn't just about Glen Taylor saving money, and not so much about us finally getting a winning team? I hope I am wrong.

Really a nice article...!
Good to hear from Taylor and the input of Coach Rambis.
Coach at times...is a quiet leader...pretty gutsy though...with Darko and Beasley!

Coach may be the big winner hear…especially with his trip to Greece and Serbia to land both Darko and Pekovic…That type of commitment, interest, reaching out …By coach Rambis and David Khan…

Some day we will read about this in a book; Hopefully…

it just said in the article that the roster wasn't set and there was still more trades to come smart-one.

WHATEVER YOU DO...DON'T RUN OUT AND BUY YOU A SHIRT WITH A NAME AND NUMBER ON IT...

At the first game of the season… even though they spent $12,000,000...
You'll look like the dumb a$$...for wearing the shirt you just spending $20.00 on.

I HEAR YOU'RE PAIN...BUT LET'S BE SERIOUS HEAR...
IT REALLY PRETTY SIMPLE...

THIS IS NOW THEIR NEW PROBLEM...
We now have too many point guards...
So let's trade...

Now...look what have we done…
we do not have enough point guards!!!

Let’s make a trade for a point guard…
But…Rumors have it...That …….. TRADEDFOR…will be waived… while TBD…should take a buyout...

Now we don't have enough point guards... Yet...HASBEN… was a good point guard...before the trouble... Who… WILL cost us $$$,$$$...just to cut him loose...

But we NOW NEED…a 2nd point guard... And Hasben… WHO is a point...will cost only a few million or so...if he stays...

Now...With… Injuryboy…..out to December...
And surely...Rubio$$$...wish come may…surely will come in…2014…and… Certainly…BenWaitingFOR...AND… WISHCOMEFOREVER...just won’t come...

And Look…when…WhenHeWillBe…fully recovers by December...then we will have… Ridhour, Jonny, Rubio and Who….and…WhoWillBe…from the trades…and…WhoEvers….who we took back in a trade… But now we have too many point guards...

Taylor has been a disaster as a owner. Twenty years of futility and probably twenty more.

What are you on?
Have you been hanging out with any 'newly' acquired Timberwolves PFs?

THE REAL QUESTION IS:
Will the TWolve have more roster moves (trades, free-agent signings, buyouts, acquisition of 2nd round picks..etc) or wins this year?
Honestly - what's the average life-span expectancy of a TWolves career at this point...weeks? days? hours?
Telfair - 2nd time offender!

It was alledged by Shooter that Taylor wants to get better, Rambis wants 'team players'(read that as no-talent), and Kahn may not be done wheeling and dealing.

Oh my goodness!!!

Folks, this really hard-hitting journalism. We never could have figured this out on our own.

I am sure glad shooter's on the job.

You are right!
Huge change in talent. I couldn't agree more.
The talent is changing so fast.
It's dropping faster than the Titanic!


The next move is, alledgedly, Flynn, AND Rubio for the following:
a Mounds, 2 Snickers, THREE 7'-0" slow centers with expiring contracts(between the ages of 34 to 40), 3 bags of M&Ms, and a pitcher of Kool-Aid with the smiley Kool-Aid face on the pitcher.

Yeah, I feel sorry for him. What the heck did he do to tick someone on his former team off?
I bet he thought that he had already served his time in NBA prison, also known as the TimberWolves.
