If someone could sticky this it would be appreciated. Thought I'd make one thread to post thoughts about any recent games, how we're playing, etc.

There you go.

And we don't need to write anything, lol.

"Big Al was decent. Small-ball was awful. Why did we lose an 8pt lead in the 4th quarter? Another loss".

Just copy and paste the above.

I like the Wolves and I want them to do well. Felt a little bad about the Blazers beating them the other night.

But then I felt pretty okay about it.  :lol:

You get used to this being a Wolves fan. Atleast we have fun in the draft every year.

It'll get better. The Wolves have some interesting trade pieces they can use to shake things up too. Another nice lottery pick would set them up anyway, cf. Portland Trail Blazers.

I hope we get Mullens. Then we'd have our own Aldridge-Oden frontcourt with Jefferson-Mullens. But hopefully without the injuries  :wink:

Wow with that many great draft picks in the last decade it's kind of amazing that they were still bad enough to land the 1st pick again.

Where do we expect the Wolves to be at the end of the year? I'm glad to finally start hearing hot-seat messages from the front office. Go Hoiberg! Go!

I'm not too concerned about the record because the Wolves need to position themselves high in the draft for obvious reasons. A lot of things aren't working, though. Who's this McCants? What happened the the clutch version we saw late in the season last year? When are we going to see a consistent Corey Brewer? Or a consistent rotation?

I was hoping to see them hit the 28-30 win mark. Now I'm not so sure, but there's plenty of time left. I'd love to see the Wolves second in the division behind the Blazers.  :wink:

76ers tonight. Do we have a chance or is it another loss? I hope if it is we just lose. I don't want to give up anymore leads.

wow we won. Iam shocked. I can't tell whether this shows that we're improving or the Philadelphia really sucks at the moment. I mean Craig Smith was our 2nd leading scorer with 21 pts. How hard can it be to stop a 6-7 power forward from dropping 20? But a few other points

1. Why was Foye starting? I love the guy but what had he done to deserve that starting spot? He wasn't doing too bad coming off the bench but he went back to his bad shooting as soon as he started. While 3-8 isn't bad his 0-3 from deep is worrying for him.

2. Telfair had 8 assists off the bench. I'd like to experiment with him starting alittle more.

3. McCants only got 6 minutes tonight. Is this a one off thing or has his horrible shot selection cost him regular minutes.

4. Finally, I think we found a team we match up well with. Or maybe we just played well. Either way iam happy for this win

It is a very good win.  McCants went out with back spasms so that is why he only played 6 minutes.  I really want to see Mike Miller start shooting more and to have a few more plays run through him.  The fact that he is averaging 12 points a game is ridiculous.

I really like Craig Smith in certain matchups.  It seems that when he plays against teams in the East he is most effective.  I really think Wittman needs to let these guys find their role on the team and let them evolve into it instead of switching things up every single games.  The Wolves have talent but it's all about guys playing to their potential.
