Isn't Taylor one of the richest sports owners? I think he is. He probably didn't get that way by wasting cash. So, why waste the cap space right now. What's available and what was available that he could get anyway? Note how many baseball players have the Twins on their no trade list. Not going to be easier with a winter sport.

If the Wolves stayed pat with last year's roster, we know what we would get this coming season: 15 wins at best.

Sure, the prior year McHale wizardry got us 25 wins, I think. And, still no superstars. We've only had one, Garnett. I give Taylor credit for being tired of being the squirrel that got that only nut.

The great part of this article is that we now know much better that Taylor, Kahn and Rambis are apparently working together well, listening to each other. And, Kahn and Rambis are working hard. Did McHale work that hard? The new guys appear to be in agreement and the changes are not just Kahn being Monty Hall.

And, this group is trying to put young potential on the floor that want to play here, can play here, have the talent for the system and may develop into the stars they were projeced to be when they were drafted high in the first rounds over the years.

Taylor is calling it risk. But, that's likely only because those that criticize have long memories for failure and short ones for optimism.

If you thought we were getting Lebron in this revamping, you probably aren't going to end up as rich as Taylor. Taylor failed and is just getting back up on the damn horse. Nice that he is not doing the same damn thing, again. Maybe we won't get the same damn result, Mike Max. You really don't get what they are doing over at Target Center? Maybe Taylor can teach you how to listen better and you can one day buy a team.

I struggle to think that a billionaire guy wants anything but to have a winning franchise. Why would he come this far and sell. He would be selling low. If he gets lucky, he would make more from the rebuild. The rebuild and hopeful resulting success would make him a ton more than buying a bunch of overpaid free agents now that can't play. The Twins have a system and the Wolves are putting in their system. You struggle with that, Mike Max?

Relax and let's watch this unfold. They're obviously trying to find and build stars that they can get. They liked Sessions. They like Ridnour better. They think Rubio is coming. So, Sessions cost them $4 million for one season. The net affect is he was on a one year contract. If you play the tape from the day Sessions was introduced, Kahn hinted of trading him. Go back and look at the tape. Kahn has been one of the most honest people in public in years. Too bad he was shut down for an unfortunate comment he made. He should run for political office instead of some of the idiots that are currently running. OK, maybe he shouldn't be a national security adviser type.

Now, those of you big thinking people criticizing Kahn should go back to work and try to perform at his level. I hope you all get to eat a lot of egg.

On ocassion I drop in to read these posts. The Tribune has their share of negative feedbacks, but they can't hold a candle to this paper. Maybe, instead of trading the Wolves for a downpayment on a new Vikings stadium, they should trade some of you posters for a bag of peanuts and a bag of M&Ms. Is possible, that when some of you {not all, because there are a few Minn. fans in here} grow up, you can become full fledged Packer fans. Good ridance to your negativity. the world would be better off without you.

Rambis has pedigree. I say absolutely take some chances. What do the Wolves have to lose? They cannot get worse.

You must be one miserable SOB. Everything you post is negative. If it's so bad here in the sports world, why do you continue to read the articles? I'm really not trying to be an A$$ but seriously WT-F? You have every right to post your opinion…absolutely, but is it really that bad in your life?
