I thought the Twolves coach could use some help with the starting 5 and his 3-4 man rotation of the bench. Jefferson, Love, Miller, Foye, Ollie - bench McCants (Foye struggles) Gomes, Telfair, Smith. Coach, remember, if a player can't make a shot you should take him out of the game. One last thing, if you team is getting out rebounded 2-1, you MUST sub in a very good rebounding player - Love, Smith. I hope after this season they will see that Wittman can't succeed as a NBA coach.

Jeff, I also have some concerns about Wittman, but I'm not sure I'd bench McCants completely. In fact, I think I'd start him at this point. He is the only one of our guards playing with any offensive confidence. In watching the first three games, I don't think Randy Foye will ever be a player. Too bad, Roy would have been a nice fit on the team. Love will play more as the season progresses. He definately has the IQ for the game.

To say the Foye looks totally clueless is an understatement, the guy apparently has some basketball IQ limitations. McFail and Wittless need to be fired. Trading Roy (who looks basketball mature beyond his years) for Foye and drafting Brewer (didn't think anyone could shoot worse than Rodman) are 2 moves that clearly warrant firing. What do we need? A point guard. What did we draft this year and then immediately trade? A point guard. But yet, McFail still has a job. Only in America.

And all true Wolves fans said "Amen". I liked the drafting of Chalmers in the 2nd round, but I guess the need for Glen Taylor was the money factor & maybe a future 2nd round pick to pad the $2 Billion he's already worth. Hmmm ......lets see..... draft a clutch player in the early 2nd round off the National Champion team who's probably as good as the point guards you already have or take the cash........we know the answer!!!!!!! I'm not saying Chalmers is the 2nd coming of Isaiah Thomas or Chris Paul etc, I think he's a very good player that could have helped us. We need players. We need athletes. We need a change in management from the top down. It just adds to the McHale legacy of drafting. Just my opinion.
