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.

      Thanks for your efforts!!! Let me know if you need any free city garbage bags; I'm involved with the City of St. Cloud Green Team. You can place them at the Munsinger Garden greenhouse, or any trail access points for easy Park Dept. pickup.
    • JeremyCampbell
      Going to get the kids out on the river today with gloves and garbage bags for Earth day.Plenty of garbage around the local community spots that can be removed.Im sure there will be more but it's something to do and it will look a little prettier out there.
    • Borch
      Wow!  Didn't realize it was that bad up there.  That's going take a long time to get turned around.

      To give you a idea of what it is like here this is how my dock has sat since last August. The river is at lake level here.  Almost no Spring flow from melting snow. Just a trickle here and there. I've burnt any grass off for 200 feet around my house, farm buildings and farm equipment so there is a little protection in case a big fire gets going. The grass has been burnt off between the highway and the airport to give Waskish a little protection in case a fire gets going south of town. Westwind cleaned their channel last fall so they should be OK for boats. Total acreage of URL and LRL is 272,000 acres so it would ONLY take 177,261,312, 000 gallons of water to raise the lake level 2 feet.

      you can get to horseshoe by boat but not far enough to get any fish yet.   This may change in the next few days.   I plan on ice fishing on shoe today.   Should be able to land a nice amount of slabs.   Don

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!
    • leech~~
      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.
    • pikeandchester
      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.

      interesting day fishing on 30 inches and 60 degrees out   no monsters but got a very round hybrid and some rock bass with neat eyes.
