Wow Ollie at starting at PG, what a joke! What happened to our true centers, for instance Collins, are we paying them to sit on the bench, all year? Very sad to say it looks like it is going to be a very very very long season, and all kinds of records to be broken. Try starting Collins at Center and Telfair at PG for a few games and let them play during the game and see what reaults you have then!!!!

How did they lose when Love got his requisite 1 point? Great trade McHale, trades the rookie scoring leader for a 1 point a game star.

As this team and it's owner and mangement head down the path of ignominy this season with each game adding to the mounting loss column, I am reminded of an old Sonny & Cher song.
With a little poetic license please, this is the opening lines:

"And the beat goes on
Just like my Timberwolves everlasting
And the beat goes on
Still moving strong on and on

Do you ever wonder
That to win, somebody's got to lose
I'm resigned to have The Timberwolves blues"

Da musical Crusher has spoke.

It's ironic they show a picture of McHale smiling as his team stinks it up night after night. If Glen has any smarts at all he will fire McHale and give him an all expenses paid trip anywhere he wants to go as long as it is one way! Then, as the best Christmas Gift he could give all T-Wolves fans he could ask Flip Saunders to forgive him for letting him go in the first place and BEG him to come back as Coach and GM and let him run the show and choose his own team to run the organization. Even at that it would take some time to turn things around because of the pathetic shape McHale has it in, but it can be done. Look at what Tubby Smith has done! HELLO GLEN! You awake? Knock knock - anybody home?

How wonderfully poetic that McFail now has to sit and watch this group of sluggs find new and creative ways to blow games. This is the group his genius drafted and traded for, now he gets to mold them into his likeness. Not a pretty sight. Fortunately fewer and fewer fans are showing up to witness his, and their, ineptitude.

The picture of McHale and Parker laughing together is accurate. McHale is saying to Parker, "we really stink don't we?" Parker says, "sorry, McHale, as a GM you are the joke of the NBA!" McHale then says, "can't argue with you about that! Ha Ha! Glen doesn't know the difference, though!" To which they both go, "HA HA HA HA HA!"

I can't say much for the game plan....get behind, stay behind, and never really threaten......can we all say "zero for December!"

The fan base is so disinterested, that only 8 posts show up in the article, and none of us are positive.

Thanks McHale! Thanks for once again destroying the team. If it isn't Joe Smith type moves its trading OJ Mayo for Kevin Love. Bone headed move after bone headed move sums up the Timberwolves under McHale and why Talyor hasn't kicked this fool out is beyond all rational thought.

Why is Kevin Ollie in Starting PG???? One smart move he made was to make Randy Foye at SG----26pts, 16rebs! I say start Telfair at PG, Foye at SG, Al Jeff at PF, Craig Smith SF, Collins at C....see how that plays out. Oh well we still lose anyway!

exactly. wolve are owed a first from the heat, they don't have a point guard so wolves trade them what is turning out to be the second best pg out of the last draft.
heat were the last team wolves should be helping out. this move made no sense from the get go.

Look for the T-Wolves to get their first win with McHale as coach in the next month or so.

Any way we can request a transfer to the D League?
