Has anyone ever heard of defense with this team? This is far from the first time this year that someone has run up big points on the Wolves. Defense is something that almost anyone can play IF they want to. I wouldn't be surprised to see a lot more changes in this team in the off-season. Maybe they should have plus/minus like in hockey, so we can tell who is playing well at both ends of the floor.

Just when you thought it couldn't get worse...

Hopefully we can grab Wall or Turner though... But with our luck, we won't even be granted one of the top 2 picks.

The first mistake was dumping Flip, the second was keeping McHale around for as long as we did. The third mistake was hiring Kahn, this guy has an ego bigger than the Metrodome. I listened to an interview with this idiot and he talked more about himself than the team.
The whole NBA is messed up, as long as NBA contracts are guarateed and most of the players are thugs, there's no reason to bust **** on a losing team.
You couldn't be more right. Although I'd put keeping McHale too long as our #1 fault with a gigantic bullet. He sure loved them slow white guys!

Kahn talks as if he's talking to a 5th grader all the time. Dude, until you prove yourself, save me the lines that show your basketball 'insight'. A lot of people know basketball, it's not too difficult to understand.

Next year is my last year following the Wolves unless they show me that they can do something positive. We should have enough room to bring in 2 needed starters and build around Al, Corey, Kevin, and Johnny. Although I have to say, Johnny and Kevin look HORRIBLE lately, they've gotten worse over the year. Johnny can't NOT turn the ball over and does Kevin Love have some kind of grease on his hands at all times? Hold onto the ball Kevin!! Also Kevin, you have no offensive game besides a jumper. Stick to that and that only, I'm tired of watching ugly hook shots from you in crunch time that basically eliminate any chance we have of winning. Man, just think what Evans or Curry would be doing right now in a TWolves uni. Kahn's uber-intelligent plan has backfired so far. He has 1 year to clean it up or be deemed another failure of a GM.

relax, we only need one good pick to turn the franchise around. remember how bad we were before KG. imagine, if we get luck and land Wall, then some how trade Rubio and get the rights to Turner...one ping pong ball away.

You can thank Kevin McHale for this mess, It will take a couple of great draft pick's and better basketball management to turn this team around.
Really?? Why not just blame it on George Bush? McHale is long
gone and was never in charge to begin with. This is Taylor's
team; he didn't make a couple of billion dollars by letting
others make business decisions for him and he isn't starting
here. From the moment he bought this franchise he has ruled
it in the same manner Pohlad did the Twins. He also owns the
Lynx..........ask yourself why, with all the number one draft
choices that team has had, are they the failure they are?
Either Taylor simply doesn't know enough to make this work and
is to egotistical to let the reins go, or he is using this part
of his business empire as a tax write off when they lose money
and just pretending to try. Remember, KG was a high school kid
when drafted; no one could have seen how good he would become
and they eventually traded him for virtually nothing in return.
Need I say more?

McHale was a good company man and Kahn is just a yes man trying
to get his foot in the door in the NBA. Rambis is a rookie
head coach who is in over his head and Taylor clearly doesn't
care. Makes you wonder which one of the two theories is right.
