Here it is, right from Jonny Flynn's mouth: "But we turned the ball over too much. It's a recurring theme for us.... What we've got to get better at is finishing off games." Where's the mirror, my friend. You're the point guard who makes bonehead turnovers, and, as to finishing games, how about finishing possessions? Those are what add up to games.

I sure hope I'm wrong, but Mr. Flynn seems to have everything needed to play point guard except the game. He dribbles too long before looking to pass, so his assists come only when he makes a lucky decision after the opposition collapses on him; he's too short and muscular to put up the acrobatic shots required of a dwarf point guard who finds himself in the paint; and he shoots too much and too poorly from outside. Oh, and he misses essential passes to teammates at essential moments.

Some of these can be corrected, but others are fundamental problems at this level. If he is to be a point guard in this league, he's going to have to take a hard look at Tony Parker, whose game his could resemble if he got a mid-range pull up jump shot. But I think he's simply too short, too committed to mindless penetration with no idea of what he's going to do, and too lacking in good long range court vision.

I hope I'm wrong.

I said it before, Flynn's basketball IQ is very low, Brewer same thing,they turn the ball way to much,dribble make some crazy decision, you go for lay-up and you have a seven footer 3 feets away from basket waiting to dunk noooooooooo,Flynn or Brewer will go for crazy lay-up. This is all coach faults. I would take him out and bench him for the rest of the game. Now on positive note, this team can compete and current position is not a realistic one. This team is better than that. We have a young team,with few boneheads but they can be straighten up,we need a good solid experienced point guard and a good who can score off the driblle create a shot for himself wing-man and with little bit more experience next year,better coaching on part of Rambis, healthy AJ this team can have 30-40 wins. Not enough for play-offs but that would be a huge improvement. And please stop calling Darko for silly fouls. Referres did punish Darko yesterday like he was some rookie coming out of college or D-league. They took him out of game immediatelly and we needed his presence in the paint.

Was hoping they could pull it off last night. Good game to watch though. We didn't seem to miss Jefferson all that much, did we??

Tony D,

Fire your proofreader, and get back in contact with your high school English teacher. That stuff is hard to read.

Saw some high school hockey action at Target Center last night. Good sized crowd, probably one of the biggest for a sporting event there in the last few years. This is the state of hockey, time for the Woofies to relocate so we can tear down this awful building that it's corporate sponsor will soon be abandoning so all incoming events (especially concerts) can be moved to the much better X-Cel in St.Paul and turn this dump into a new parking ramp for Target field.

Wait until you start getting headaches from that vague overly-sanitized odor from the adjacent garbage burner before you sing too many praises to Target field. That siting was a BAD decision based solely on politics, when sites near the river and in St. Paul were far superior and readily available. You may end up running for the cover of Target Center just to get a breath of trustworthy air, if not the experience of a trustworthy team.

Wasn't singing any praises. Won't be attending any games unless tickets are complimentary. It's just that the other baseball wonks are going to need a place to park and there's obviously nothing going on at this site that's worth attending by the team of underachievers that currently call it home.

Hey Tony I had a feeling English wasn't ur first language. I have trouble with just the one (english) good on you with the four. I know people from all over the world and we as Americans are lucky that English is the universal language.
