Time for a new coach, and I mean a REAL coach, not a retread, not another country club member, but an honest-to-goodness head coach with credentials that can show these players HOW to play.

Over two decades of NBA in Minnesota and we are losing at the same pace now as in the beginning. Hmmmmmm, not too exciting.

An interesting stat from last night...the "new" starters shot 49% and the bench shot only 25%. While that's not the whole story, I'd say that's a good leading indicator of either the effort or the attitude of the our big-name players.

Hey, did you hear the story about the guy who goes to the doctor and tells him he can't get to sleep at night, lays awake tossing and turning.
The doctor's unblinking advice. "Here, just take these two Timberwolves tickets and call me in the morning. They will bore you to sleep."

No matter how many times you try to rationalize it, Roy for Foye is going to go down as one of the epic bad trades of all time. Foye is way too inconsistent and Roy is an all star. Makes me sick every time I see a Portland box score and then see a Foye 2 for 13 box score.

After watching Minnesota play Cleveland tonight its a fact that this team is equal to a college team,no defence,horrible shooting and they looked like they rather have been watching the game on T.V. instead of playing it, i feel bad for Kevin who has to bring this team to play an NBA game,the wolves fans who im sure would if anything would like to see them at lease try to play ball,i dont know what they do in there practices but it looks like they just dont care. What happened to this team that just a few years ago was a proud strong team,the owner needs to soul search himself and get real about building a quality team. Very sad for the fans.

Foye was 1 for 7 tonight inside the 3 line. What a joke, the guy must be shooting 20% inside the 3 the past month.
