The timberwolves had no answer for Jason Richardson, Gerald Wallace, or Emeka Okafor. All three were too athletic for any wolves defender to stay with. The bigs couldn't check Okafor, and the 2's and 3's couldn't stay close to Wallace and Richardson.

The wolves are going backwards in their development. Silly me, but I have to wonder if the reason McHale is on this road trip is that he is getting close to pulling the plug on Wittman. I think that Slim would already be gone if the wolves hadn't won last week.

The Charlotte stands looked deserted last night. I think the Target Center is in line for a visit from the same interior designer. Apathy is going to be the new buzzword.

Wake me when the Wolves win three straight. At that point I may start watching and/or going to games.

What a dysfunctional franchise.........

and to think they are celebrating 20 years in the NBA this season...how sad, and at the same time, a good time to reflect on how screwed up this franchise was from the very beginning..to think it has been 20 years and they have won NOTHING, ...how sad...Gee, McFale must be so proud..and his buddy Glenn, he must be puffing his chest too with pride.............NOT...what a waste..I say move them out of town, get a new owner and try again.........couldn't be any worse, just couldn't....Bring back FLIP........

What a shocker. The Wolves lose. Where's O.J. Mayo when they need him? Oh, that's right, the leading candidate for NBA Rookie of the Year is lighting it up in Memphis while the Wolves' unathletic,white rookie isn't even good enough to start. Go figure.
