Maybe Randy should be questioning what he's telling these guys. He's 38-102 with this team. Dwane Casey was 52-70 when he was unjustly fired. Randy's lucky he's buddies with McHale.

Yeah, I'm thinking coaching lapses should be drawing players' ire as well.

And Drew, Mayo and Roy wouldn't be putting up those numbers for this sorry organization. We screw young talent all the time, they'd be no exceptions.

Consider this Wolfie fans:

Mayo: 21.3 pts 4.6 rb 2.3 ast
Love: 9.1 pts 6.7 rb 1.1 ast

Also, when Mchale made the Garnett trade, he originally wanted Rajon Rondo as part of the deal--he was a little known player at the time but McHale was right to want him included. Instead, Ainge said no, Kevin said "ok, we'll settle for Telfair instead". Rondo has turned into a legit point guard (check his triple double last night) and Telfair is playing like he always has, sub par. If we had gotten Rondo and Jefferson for Garnett plus the picks, it would have been a much more balanced trade. As it is, Boston has another championship courtesy of a Minnesota Pro franchise .
Can this franchise get any worse?

Oh yes. Here is my prediction: Wittman will drive us to another top 5 lottery pick and McHale will convince everyone to trade it to the Knicks (plus 3 future first round picks) for Stephon Marbury to come back home to where he belongs, as McHales next great idea to bring us back the glory years of a .500 season.
Sheesh. Worst managed and run team in the NBA.
