T Wolves, what can we expect?

Recommended Posts

I never imagined we'd have this poor a record and play this poor of defense. I thought we were shoe-ins for a 1-3 spot in the west. Didn't see the game as we lost to Phoenix and dropped to 16-13, but I can imagine there was uninspired play at every position other than KG. Closed-circuit to Sam and Spree: You didn't get a contract extension, boo hoo. You're already overpaid now start earning your money. Jason Kidd isn't coming to bail this team out any time soon. The pieces are there so get down to business and play. If you don't, we may not even make the playoffs.

Offense doesn't seem to be an issue. Our perimeter defense and rotation has been horrible, and let's face it, when KG goes out, there isn't anyone that will contest in the paint. At this point, we would all be stretching a bit if we think we could knock off phoenix or san antonio or dallas at home in the playoffs. Oh well, just like the Vikes there is always next year.

Too many points in the paint, what we need is a true center, besides Kandi, who is terrible. There is alot of time to turn the tide, but without some greater defensive play it might be along season.

While it's pretty abysmal, as they dropped a game to the 7 win Bobcats tonight, I hope that a team with this much talent has reached rock bottom. I do think they can fix the problems, but it will take time that they don't have. They have to shoot for the division and catch Seattle so they can host the first round. The more in the hole they get, the more minutes the old guys are going to have to get...it may very well get worse before it gets better. However, with the talent they have you can't just say wait for next season . I know that it doesn't work like flipping on a light switch but I think this team will play a lot differently when it really matters at the end of spring and into the playoffs.

Give it time the season is still early. The T-wolves seem to start slow every year. Last night's game was just a pathetic performance by the team. When it is time to start worrying about the Wolves is when the national media or even local media start comparing the wolves to the Vikes, nothing is more pathetic than that team.

Yeah that's a tough loss, getting outscored something like 25-5 the last 5 minutes just proves that this team is playing with a lack of heart and I believe is expecting to win every game, therefore the lack of effort and determination needed to put together a winning team, I agree with mnwild, FLip and McHale will right the ship, I would not worry, It might be hard keepin up with Seattle but I think we can give any team a run for the money. Now on to the football forum and into some real team bashing!

Went to the game tonight. Crapped away a 15 point lead but held on. Poor mad dog. 6-7 weeks I hear for a broken thumb. Cassell's hammy is strained also. Pretty poor performance considering Iverson DNP (Ankle). Wally looked really good: He's strong so he can bump off screens and make powerful inside moves to compliment his outside shooting. Hudson took good shots, played acceptable defense. Griffin finished with 3 points I think, but he really impressed me by altering about half a dozen shots, grabbing 7 D boards...despite poor shooting he came to play. Olowakandi....OMG. I stopped by Southdale Mall early in the afternoon and he walked right past me, no mistaking a 7 footer with his always unshaven face. I was staring at him and we made eye contact and sorta nodded like we both knew that we knew who he was (if that makes sense)...then he goes out at target center and stinks the joint up. I should have walked over to him and told him to shave and play with some emotion. Still not earning his money.

But I digress....A win is a win.

It sure seems like they suck as of late, but I still think that they are one of the most talented teams in the league. As soon as they decide to start playing as a team they will be just fine.

There's lots of jitter going across the internet that the Wolves are in trade talks with Miami for Sprewell. Wouldn't bother me none to see his sorry, hungry a$$ go.

I don't think he wants to be here anyway, I wouldn't be surprised if Cassell hits the road also. The only problem is their trade values aren't real high because of thier ages. I think something needs to be done, the chemistry is no longer.

      Cliff, did you have a lot of vehicle traffic around you on Saturday? Maybe the bad fishing on Saturday was just the weather conditions, although Saturday was beautiful weather-wise.
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Same here. Thursday was a good bite and the weekend bite was mostly a bust! Cliff

      I think he's going to not wash it and keep telling everyone at the bait store and on the lake he's a Pro Staff on HSO & Outdoors Minnesota. Until someone sends him a HSO hoody or new hat!

      My advice for ice fishing on Vermilion would be to avoid high traffic areas.  I always believed this before, but this weekend seemed to validate that theory. On Thursday my neighbors in our ice fishing village decided to plow roads, driveways, and parking lots all around, and I only caught 4 little walleyes. Friday I planned to take my portable out to an isolated spot, but none of my village neighbors were out that day, and the fishing was very good.  I caught 14 walleyes that day, including 21" and the pictured 26" and 24" slotters. Saturday I thought that maybe the fishing was just picking up so I fished in my permanent again.  Caught only 2 walleyes while my neighbors proceeded to have a big family gathering with many vehicles going back and forth. Love fishing in my permanent house, but the next time it starts to get busy in the neighborhood, I am moving out with my portable.

    • eyeguy 54
