Casey Fired

Recommended Posts

I'm a little surprised at the timing, since the first few weeks of the month they were really hot, but what could he have done about KG's suspension or the Double OT loss without Garnett. The Atlanta game is indefensible. I think management didn't like the inconsistency. His substitution patterns were a little baffling. He wasn't a bad coach, but he didn't set the world on fire either. At least they played good defense and got something from Blount. Some nights Blount looks like an all-star.

I think they wanted to fire him earlier but couldn't find any justification. They probably always wanted Wittman. Oh well, it isn't the Wolves time and it probably won't be for a long time.

Do yourselves a favor and watch the Suns. I caught their game on Sunday vs. Garnettless Wolves...What a fun group to watch. If I had the NBA League pass, I'd be watching ever game. They will win teh championship this year.

So when is Taylor going to pull his head out of the sand and fire the one guy who really, really, really needs it?? He has had long enough to put a winning team on the court and has proved over and over again he is incapable of doing so. FIRE MCHALE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It's obvious that they are pals and I bet Taylor is in between a rock and a hard place with McHale....

Maybe Whitmann will see no reason to play Troy Hudson. Casey at least cut his playing time.

I heard Barreiro on the way home and he was about to have a heart attack. He made some good points, he went off on McHale (and with good reason). Star Tribune had an instant poll, What is your reaction to Dwane Casey's firing?

Results, at time of posting:

I'm fine with it and Randy Wittman's hiring, 14%

This is wrong, Casey was doing a good job, 5%

The wolves should hire a high profile coach like Larry Brown, 10%

Kevin McHale is to blame, the wrong guy was fired, 70%

I can't believe how long this has gone on. The only worse GM in sports is Matt Millen.

McHale hasn't made a handful of good decisions since Taylor hired him. I think it's time for him to leave.

If McHale can fire Flip, then Taylor should be able to fire McHale. Is Taylor that naive that McHale is the constant in all the mess that the Wolves are in? Everyone else is gone except for him. He is like Matt Millen of the nba. If Glen is wondering who he could put into that spot he could use Hoiberg or go after Rex Chapman who was here last year. Wonder why he left? Maybe McHale thought Rex was a threat to his job. That would be one of the few things McHale would be correct. Maybe McHale should step down and he should call up Isaiah Thomas and they should run a team together. That would be the nba's version of tweedle dee and tweedle dumb. You have to feel for KG. How can he take this? I think everyone would be happy for KG if he is traded to a contender to win a championship.

you guys are right, they fired the wrong guy. They should of fired Matt Millen, wait McHale. Kevin McHale is the Matt Millen of football. I dont know who has run their team into the ground more between the 2. Oh well get a fresh guy in here to turn things around

Looking back on things, I guess they should have fired Casey earlier. Then we wouldn't have had those 20 of 32 wins holding us back from chasing down Oden or Durant. So much for Wittman's consistency and turning things around for those higher expectations in the front office.

Now with the 6th or 7th pick, they'll have to look things over a little more. McHale said he was going to be looking to make trades today, but what can you do with all those bloated contracts? See you all here a year from now with around the same record. Who knows if KG will be back.

      In Aitkin now; getting a slow start this morning.  No problem there, it’s a day bite for the most part.   Yesterday I checked one of those two hit list lakes.  Evening into the dark.  I only picked up 2 perch, 1 gill and had one 30 inch pike to the hole 4 times before it came off when I got more aggressive to turn his head into the hole.  I started in 24 feet and worked up to 15 before connecting with anything.   What a fight though. Using a 28 inch pannie rod, 2 lb test on a 13 Descent, fishing size 16 jig and plastic.  After hooking into it and the first head shakes were done it just sat there.  I couldn’t move it for a while but could feel it finning around.  I thought, what the heck!  Did I just hook a beaver?!

      Beautiful morning on the harbor.  6 inches of ice where I'm at.

      60 years ago at the age of 10, I used to read the fishing ads in Field & Stream about fishing in Minnesota.   I always said I would go one day, but as you know life and things get in the way.   Well, I'm 90% retired now and ready to make the long trip from way down south to go fishing in Minnesota, my lifelong dream.   I always wanted to go to the BWCA, but I'm simply not able now due to health problems. I can't do hiking, portaging, etc anymore.   Here's the deal....  I would love to find a small remote cabin (in Minnesota) on a small lake to stay for a week or more, next spring or summer.    I don't need anything fancy... rustic is the best for me.   I want to fish for smallmouth bass and big bluegills and I will bring my boat along too.   If any of you could recommend a small lake, with a small cabin and good fishing to rent for a week or so, I promise I will repay you somehow.   A guide would be nice for a day, or I'd gladly give one of you a nice tip and take you along in my boat fishing, as many days as you want.   Would you please help make my 60-year dream come true?  PM me if you wish.   Thanks in advance.    PS:  If the fishing is better in a spot that doesn't have cabins, I can find a place to stay elsewhere.  Good fishing is more important that a place to sleep anyway.
