Hmm I would think Raja can help this team. If they dont improve then our coaching staff is on the line and I do believe we have the right coaching staff. I think the staff need teach more however as we have the same record as last year!

So there is The Gap..Short handed, and missing their best 2 players who were just traded, Denver still manhandles Memphis the Night before last, while Wolves are losing to the Bucks. Then Memphis in turn, manhandles the Wolves.So Denver keeps on rolling missing Billups and Mello with Ty Lawson at the point and we get stomped by Memphis. So we're talking about a huge gap between us and Denver, a good team with great mgmt where the Beat goes on. So how are we ever gonna catch the Great teams like the,Lakers, Dallas,etc? Mr. Taylor needs to take off the Rose Colored Glasses and take a good look at whats happened here. Almost no ammo left to trade?, We got Darko who cant Dunk or draw a foul?.. Webster with his bad back? Trying to outsmart the Draft, helping other teams get under the luxury tax so they can improve, and Bringing in volumes of Other teams Bench players hoping to find a Jewel has been a Travisty. Glenn, the Gap is now Big as the Grand Canyon. When you gonna put down the Shovel?

Last year it was obvious that the Wolves were trying to lose on purpose, this year they were supposed to be better maybe win 25 - 30 games, it doesn't look that way now - when you put your only all star on the bench for 18 min and lose another close game, it's another bad coaching job in a long list of mistakes that this team has made - to stay with Rambis is like losing on purpose.

And you actually PAY to see this team play? How many times do they have to lose before you finally say, enough is enough with these losers?

The nba has another problem teams like Mn, bucks,nuggets,NO,cleveland detroit nobody wants to play the anymore. The Players are follow Dave Stern's lead. Big cities only. He made up the lottery so he could Patrick Ewing in NYC. About 4 teams have a chance to win in the nba.Just like Women's college basketball. Not fantastic.

A distraction?!? Of course, its a MAJOR distraction from watching your team lose every freaking night! Enjoy this 'distraction' while it lasts because it may never happen again and its most likely the ONLY reason the public pays any attention to your ballclub. Drop the 'team speak' and get what is yours in this lost season.

I was there. The crowd got into it when the Wolves pulled it to within 3 in the 4th. They then proceeded to be down by 10 within what felt like a minute taking away any buzz that had been building. Of course fans are going to leave with a few minutes left. If love wasn't close to a double double more people probably would have left earlier.

Rambis sat Love because he was getting schooled on the court. Totally outplayed. Tolliver played much better in his place. Check out these plus/minuses. Starters: Beasley -16; Love -7; Milicic -12; Johnson -10; Ridnour -8. Bench: Hayward +5; Pekovic +2; Ellington +1; Telfair -1; Tolliver +1. Hell, Love played more minutes than he deserved, just enough to get his precious double/double. I'd rather Love do what it takes to win (play defense!) and forget about the double/double. If it comes in the flow of the game, great! If not, then so be it. I can guarantee that Moses Malone wasn't thinking about doubles, he was just out there pounding to win.
