Timberwolves' coach Randy Wittman could be on the hot seat in the wake of the team's 1-6 start to the season.

Even if Wittman feels the pressure, he still feels as though his team is close to turning the corner.

"No, all you can do is prepare each day, that's all you can do," Wittman said. "I'm not going to worry about that. I've been in this business 25 years. I know what you have to do to be successful and that's what I'm trying to do."

Minnesota has lost two games in overtime and has blown a few sizable leads in their six losses.

"I'm not down. We shouldn't be down. We should be mad at ourselves. We're not a 1-6 team, but that's the reality. We're not that far from being 4-3," Wittman added. "This team will be better than a 20-win team. ... I really think this team is not that far from turning things in a positive direction."

Maybe we will finally be free. Anyone know any other good coaching candidates still available?

Taylor will not pay three coaches at a time.

We are still paying Casey. We are paying Wittman. Third coach? Hell no, he won't pay.

So we all know who will take the coaching reigns...

If you were serious - he can't. Player/coaches aren't allowed in the NBA.

If Wittman is getting dropped, McHale is taking over, and we all know that. Cooper, Sichting or JB Bickerstaff are assistants that can't be promoted to head coach because they lack the experience.

Wittman needs to go.  He may be a good teacher but he's a horrible Head Coach.  He can't manage the team whatsoever.
