The "CON" man is telling Johnson, "you know I don't know what I'm doing right?" And Johnson is replying, "RIGHT!" "Everybody knows that, HA HA HA HA HA, oh well!!" :)

Yeah but...to trade Flynn to Indy would be an admission that last year's draft was a failure. They passed on Curry (a real gem) and traded Ty Lawson to Denver.

It was a failure. And so was this year's, and so has been every trade Kahn has made.
Face it. With every trade made, this team is,(and it's hard too imagine how it can be) worse than it was before.


It is really quite something to see.
When you start talking about Kevin Love being the last thing left and what they will have to build around, you know you are in trouble. It is very debatable whether or not Mr. Love even has the level of talent on his current team that he had at UCLA. Nothing against Mr. Love, but he is not an NBA superstar and that is how you build teams to win championships in this league.


You have to:
1)draft them (Bulls)
or
2)be lucky enough to have some dim-witted GMs drop two of them into your lap (Celtics - Allen, Garnett),(Lakers - Bryant, Gasol)
or
3)Have them sell out their original team and sign with yours.


As bad as the Wolves are, no way Rubio shows. He demands a trade to NY team. Wolves screw up trade and again have nothing to show for trade but washed up players with bloated contracts or draft picks used poorly.

I can't wait to watch the t-wolves this year. They will definitely be more exciting and improved from last year. I'd say an improvement of 10+ games from last years team.
Darn it Beasley! I thought we told we told you never to write anything on line or talk to the media after smoking that stuff!More than 10 more wins?

They would be lucky to REACH ten wins.

Here's a simple equation: Timberwolves keep the 15th pick + Timberwolves use 15th pick = Timberwolves draft Ty Lawson.
It was the 18th pick. If you are gonna bitch and act like you know what you are talking about maybe you should get some facts right. Plus they might have thought that he was going to be gone at that pick when they traded it to denver.

wow, an improvement of 10 games!!!! that means they would win 25 games,and lose ONLY 57, how awesome.....typical , accept AND embrace mediocrity..........
If you are being honest and actually can not wait until the TPups play again, well I am really sorry for you. I do not mean to be disrespectful to you but c'mon, the Wolves? really? You must be a true fan if you are genuinely excited for this team and this newest group of stiffs.
Let him be excited for the wolve, if you are not and dont really care then why are you on this blog? Im guessing that you are so that way if they suprise people this year you can be like "well i have been following them and believed in them from the beggining"

What Hope writes, "I don't plan on watching them anyway, so who cares?" Are you saying that because you aren't going to watch, no one else will want to either? Rather arrogant of you, isn't it?
It constantly amazes me how many people profess to have no interest in the Wolves, yet read the articles and comment on them. I have no interest in the Wild and consequently never read any articles about them.
I have a theory. I think you haters do care - you are just frustrated and venting that frustration with negative comments. Let the Wolves start winning and you will be back, loving the franchise, thinking Kahn is a god, and commenting like crazy about what a wonderful team this is.
thank you. well spoken

settle down Zippy, it's the Wolves we are talking about here, not sonething actually important........AND if you can't understand the real meaning of what I wrote, and you did miss the boat COMPLETELY, either read it again or move on, pretty simple...again, it's basketball, not like it's a REAL sport.

I live about 8 miles form their home "base" . I have been a Minnestoan my whole life and yes, I could care less about that organization, they have been messed up since day 1 and seem to never ever get on track...HOWEVER Zippy, I am still interested simply because they are a local team. I have never went to a game,, never will, pro BBall is a joke altogether but I still read about them, follow them and like to know what is going on, simple enough to understand isn't it?..if you CAN'T wrap your brain around the concept, well just let it go, it really isn't that important.

This is an intelligent response. For many of us, pro sports is not life and death, it's an enjoyable diversion and a finite, measurable experince in an otherwise constantly shifting world. It also has the cheap thrills of wildly overpaid men (and not-so-overpaid women), many of whom we would not even like to be around if we knew them, performing athletic feats at the highest level. Then there's the "game board" dimension of the contest where coaches, some of whom are also exceedingly odd people, try to devise ways to use the players to defeat other groups of players led by other coaches.

And then there's the fact that many of us played the game in high school or, much more rarely, college, and we know something about it.

Just because we don't wear team jerseys or support the local team with unquestioned rabidity, does not mean we aren't interested. I've been watching the Vikings since their first training camp, the TWolves since they stumbled out of the gate, and the Twins since they first hit the ground in Met Stadium. I hardly ever go to a game but watch many on television. I applaud my son for his lack of interest in professional sports because they, by and large, are sick, out of balance cultures. And i derive great pleasure from the contests, the strategies, and the personalities. I don't hate Green Bay in football, Chicago in baseball, or anyone in pro basketball. I measure my interest by the quality of play and the sportsmanship of the coaches and players of a particular team.

So, it ain't life and death, but it makes life and death easier. And that's all she wrote.
