He doesn't even realize that he is about to be cut....he is the Punto of the NBA, and was never worthy of an NBA salary....

there is alot of assuming going on for players, who have not played, a second of nba basketball. minnesoto will be lucky if they win 20 games next year. every year minnesoto seems to be rebuilding, fylnn and rubio are hype up. when they play the nba point guards, ther true colors will show. and i guess next year, they will be rebuilding again and trading away players, yet again. just watch.

Guess what, not one guy drafted has ever played a minute in the nba. Does that mean you have to sit here quietly and wait and see before you have the right to be optomistic?

Loosen up tha collar buddy, the T-Wolves have been lucky to win 20 the past two years so it isn;t like they're going backwards....

Kahn is getting rid of players that he knows wont play and would just take time away from our possible future stars. like telfair taking min away from flynn and possibly rubio and smith taking away min from love. and as soon as we can trade the people from the washington trade with other people some of them will probably be gone to

Johnny Flynn (PG)
Quentin Richardson (SG)
Rodney Carney (SF)
Kevin Love (PF)
Al Jefferson (C)
This is better than last year at least...
no way, this line up is better than last year, a rookie point guard, bad back, over the hill shooting guard, and old man rodney carney, and no true center.

"Old man" Rodney Carney is the ripe old age of 25. The T-Wolves lineup is better than last year if for no reason than Kahn is getting rid of the excess baggage that wasn't in the future plans of the Wolves. Richardson will only be here for one year (if they don't trade him before).

u 2 guys are ubelievable. flynn is way too short to play shooting guard, in the nba. and nba players are looking hard at rubio, and trust me will play him very tough and physical. just because he is being hype so much. this team will end up in last place, and no superstar nba player wants to come to minnesoto. in 2010. even the player they drafted with the 5th pick is not sure about playing here. last year team started developing chemistry, in the month of febuary, when the team was healthy, they had the best month in the nba. now comes the rookies, which will end up being worse than last year.

They might end up with a worse record than last year, but they are finally putting together a team that will hopefully be able to compete in the future. The team wasn't going to go anywhere with Telfair, Mike Miller, and Randy Foye.
And please go back to see which teams the Wolves played when they compiled that "best month in the NBA". They were 10-4 for the month and beat 2 teams that had better than a .500 record. Not saying they weren't playing some good ball, but the record had way more to do with who they played against. They did not have a good enough team to make it to the playoffs in the Western Conference, and won't this year either. But, I think they might have a chance now in a couple years.

johnny all you do is talk **** on everyone. you have nothing to back up any of your talk. it doesn't really matter how tall you are look at ben gordan he is technically undersized for a sg as well but that doesn't stop him does it

first of all ben gordon, well had a strong supporting cast,when he played in chicago, and ben gordon, is a superior talent, than any player on the timberwolves except al jefferson. chicago bulls had big people, like thomas. who could guard the middle and block shots. minnesot has no true center. which is a big reason why they will lose so much next year.
