miller, cardinal and collins to knicks for marbury.
have marbury help the ball boys for the rest of the year unless a guard goes down.
wolves will be better in the long run.
could have four first round picks in next draft.
where r they going to put all those rookies unless they free up a few spots.

An open letter to Glen Taylor: You are a smart businessman evidenced by the success of your companies and personal wealth. What I cannot comprehend is that you continue to side with Mchale and Whitman while I would guess that 80% of the people you are trying to sell tickets and merchandise to want to see a change. Please, Please, Please do something. I love the wolves but cheer for blowout losses just so you will get fed up enough to make a change. Do you think Whitman is suddenly going to change and win 100 games in a row so he will be a .500 coach? That Mchale will get lucky again in the next 5 years and draft someone worthwile so you can make the playoffs in 2015? Get off your AS* and have the guts to can some people. You may rediscover a fanbase!

Its a shame I also hope the wolves lose and get embarrased so that Taylor will get fed up enough to fire the twin clowns Wittman and Mcfail.

I try real hard to watch the games, but they are so terrible that I can't even make it through the first quarter. Fan base, if they don't do something soon even 5 for 1 ticket deals won't bring people in the door. I wouldn't settle for anything less than 5 for 1 right now, why waste the time especially when the Gophers are a much better ticket? I feel sorry for the T-Wolves sales staff trying to sell McFail's garbage..... Sorry Glen, but your not doing yourself any favors keeping McFail so you're doing it to yourself with no sympathy from me.

As a Minnesota sports fan 30 minutes from downtown, free Wolves tickets 3rd row, mid court, wouldn't get me to waste the time.

Their only drawing card is to hype the visiting team as the draw....Good Grief!

If the owner isn't willing to make the changes needed (fire general manager & coaches), he should sell the team to someone who will!

Nice trades McHale. You've made one good selection in your entire career. Garnett... and you couldn't do what Ainge is doing in Boston, surrounding him with talent. YOU SUCK! You are the worst exec in not only the NBA but all of sports. Trade Roy for Foye? Trade away Mayo for Love? Looks like we are heading for another high draft pick that you can trade away. YOU ARE A LOSER! QUIT NOW!

If I were given season tickets I wouldn't attend every game, not for lack of time, for lack of desire. The energy is, at best, inconsistent, the product is flawed, and the management team has spent the better part of the first 20 years keeping this team in a languished state. We did have a nice run with Flip but never moved beyond. Who was to blame for that? It can't be Flip if he never had the ultimate authority. In the 20 years this team has been together is has always failed in the front office. We've had horrible coaches, great coaches, horrible players, great players, the only consistent part of this bit has been an inept front office. I consider Glen Taylor to be one of the better owners in the NBA, his loyalty is his greatest asset and his greatest liability. Move McHale out, turn the reigns over to Hoiberg and Co. and lets start over. This franchise is dangerously close to totally apathy from its fans. A move would not be stopped, and that would be too bad.

Come on guys we all know Taylor does not care the fans want a winning team and competency from the front office and head coaching.

It befuddles me how year after year after year Mc Hail makes mistake after mistake after mistake and has basically runs this franchise into the ground and Mr Taylor continues to allow it.

He obviously does not read any of the fans comments on forums, emails nor phone calls made to his office from angry fans. If he doesnt care why should we.

Whitman talks like a man who doesn't care anymore. When the coach starts making excuses for his team you know his time is limited. This past week he was quoted as saying the players didn't execute the game plan. That is coaching. Let's face it, Whitman may be the nicest guy in the world. But he has had virtually no success in his role as a head coach.

they would be trading miller (a good player off the bench for a good team) for over 15 million in saved salaries next season and making roster room for the next new crop of rockies.
what's nuts about that idea ?
