Foye 2 for 12 from the field with 4 turnovers. I'm sure Brandon Roy had a game like this, well maybe not. Why is McHale still around this team? He reeks of failure. It is comical the collection of players McHale has surrounded himself with. It is almost like he wants to lose. Big Al, who never knew he had to play D. K Love, a big lug with no offense who recently went 2 for 9 from the free throw line, yes the free throw line. Mike Miller a bench player everywhere but here. Corey Brewer a darker, skinnier version of Love. McCants who Cant. Telfair got his contract, see you in the last year of it.

The reason behind this team sucking so bad is simple: THEY TRADED MAYO FOR K-LOVE AND SOME WHITE BUMS! The Wolves won't be any good for years and if/when that happens they'll likely have moved because they no longer have (nor do they deserve) a fan base in Minnesota.

A local paper here in the greater LA area described the Timberwolves as "mediocre". Boy was that writer giving this franchise more credit than they deserve. Maybe the guy has watched too many Clipper games. I can not remember a sports organization such as the Wolves who have made so many truly stupid player personnel decisions as the Wolves have done over the years. This team is in worse shape today then their formative years.

Mayo dropped 28 last night to help Memphis to their 4th straight win... Good one McHale.

Over at the Red Star they are reporting that the T-pups haven't yet learn to play McFail's "style" of basketball. I don't know, looks like they've got "losing" just about all figured out! That's the only style McFail knows since he retired as a player. This guy has got to be the worst player evaluator and contract negotiator in professional sports history. Other than stumbling into picking Garnett, has he made one other selection or trade that has worked out? If he has, I sure missed it!

Fire McFail and start over from scratch.

I wonder if the Gopher Men's Basketball have any games the same night as the Skunks to see which team would draw more people to watch. I'm betting Gopher Basketball would win hands down with what Tubby is building there. The hockey Wild are already kicking the Skunks butt attendance wise. Why anyone would waste their time and money going to see this team is beyond me particularly with McFail now as the coach.

I'm a Timberwolves fan. I should coach the Timberwolves insted of McHale.
