first off- to all off you that love to make fun of peoples names- this is not my real name so knock off the henry b.s. here's how you fix the wolves-
1) Admit you made a mistake- fire laid back Rambis. Hire Mark Jackson and light a fire under these guys asses- I'm tired of seeing wolves players laughing on the sidelines when they're down by double digits late in the game!
2) realize the kids cannot bring the franchise back by themselves- get some immediate help so they see they will be benched when they suck. Luis Scola is a very mediocre NBA player but he torched the young guys on this team!
3)Dammit coaches- show some passion- get thrown out of a game arguing a call that is definitely wrong and against you. Get the players playing with passion!

Obviously you haven't seen much Wolves basketball since the K.G. trade. We got nothing but junk for a superstar in K.G. and until we completely clean house this team will never win. Getting rid of McMoron was a great first step. Gnomes and BGA should be sent packing for draft picks they are total losers and their record on the court backs up those facts.
Clean house and rebuild then in about a decade we may have a decent team in place that can compete and win.

This team could go 1-81. Basketball is game in which the more talented team wins. No hot "goalie", or "pitcher", or "quarterback" to bail you out.

How can anyone pay to see this team? They should give away free tickets every night and never say they are more than a glorified CBA team at the moment.

My "over-under" bet of 31 wins this season is looking pretty good.......I knew the "timberpups" wouldn't let me down......
One question...does anyone know how many times this season we get to play the NJ Nets?

"Travel weary Rockets"!!! What, did they walk here from Phoenix?

Received 8 free nose-bleed tickets for a pre-season game VS. Chicago. Must have been 2000 people there. You could hear the players talking on the court.
Horrible game, very hard to watch. We tried to get better seats downstairs at half-time, of which there were thousands, and were denied. We will NEVER go back........nice job Timberwolves..........

What a waste of a team, way too much expansion. Not enough talent to go around, just like every pro team out there. Getting tickets to a TW game should be a punishment, like community service.

They will be better once Love is back. Hopefully his fire will inspire some of the other players.

This team needs a leader. Flynn seems totally overwhelmed at this point maybe that is his fault maybe it is Rambis's fault.

This team is in a holding pattern that is why nobody is trying that hard. Flynn, Ellington, Sessions, and Jefferson know they will be back next year with more talented teammates, while everyone else including Gomes and Brewer know they will most likely be somewhere else next year.

If Utah and Charlotte both make the playoffs this year the Wolves will have two mid first round picks plus their own top 5 pick. They need all the help they can get.

It's incomprehensible that we should be getting a lack of effort from this rag-tag bunch. Most of these guys should be thankful they're even receiving a paycheck in this league, they wouldn't make other squads. They should be flying around the court every night. Certainly don't have the talent to win on talent alone (H Brooks). Try hustling, boys!

I would like to see this starting line up until Love comes back, and let them play most of the game.

Jefferson center
Pecherov forward
hollins forward
sessions PG
ellington SG

I was realy disapointed when they did not offer Pecherov another contract for next year. When Love can play insert him into hollins spot on the starting 5. The reason I went with Sessions he is a better point guard at this time and he is also young age wise. What do you all think?

Johnny Flynn is NOT the answer! Watch the poor kid try to play DEFENSE. He really sucks!!! He is usually lost. He has no attitude or fire to play defense and cause turnonvers. Every game I have watched, his counter part has shown him up. HE is way over rated!! Brewer cant shoot or handle the ball with pressure on him. This team is lost. They really need Love to pound the boards. They are going throu the motions and the sad thing is, they accept DEFEAT with out giving a true effort. Same stories, just other players.

I think in that line-up, Hollins would be the center, and Al would be the PF. I'm afraid Pecherov can't guard most SF's, though. That seems to be the trouble. Agree they would be fun to watch.

I don't see Al Jefferson as a building block for a team playing the triangle. If they are really committed to the triangle, they'll need to give his spot to Love (who's perfect for it) and try to use Al to trade for a legitimate start SG.

Maybe Coach Rambis needs to ask himself the question about where is the fire and intensity. Nobody said this job was going to be easy.

I agree with your assesment, but we do not have a real center, so I put Jefferson in that spot for he likes to play center. I do not care for Hollins attitude or tallent. Flinn may be good down the road, let him learn as a reserve, start sessions, much more tallented at this moment in time. We realy need a true center, sg, and small forward. We have so much trade bait in my opinion. Every one except Love, Sessions, Ellington, Rubio rights, maybe Jefferson and 2d unit of Pechrov, Gomes and Flinn, in my opion the rest of the players on the roster are trade bait. Flinn reminds me of Marberry, when he joined the wolves, his own shot first and alot of turn overs, not my type of point, but he is young maybe he can learn.

how 'bout...

jefferson to washington for james, haywood and their
first round pick.
should be a good one if wiz keep sucking.
wolves season is lost already anyway.

try to get that pick back fron clippers.
if wolves tank three years in a row,
clippers could get a superstar because mcfail and co wanted jaric over cassel. dopes.

see if clippers will take jazz pick wolves own.
