A sideline dust-up between Kevin Love and J.J. Barea was a byproduct of a ragged performance against the lowly Kings.

This team is not watchable right now. They are now last years Wolves. I cannot fathom a reason to follow them the rest of this year. And no draft pick next year. Yuck.

They are definitely not playoff material, unless they start putting in more effort!

While watching I couldn't help but think, what awful coaching. This team was clueless on the Defensive end. Every time Beasely gets on a roll Adelman pulls him. Without Rubio this team goes right back to the basement. That was embarrassing.

This team is nothing without Rubio.

Did anyone see Barea and Love get in to during a 4th quarter time out? They had to be separated by a couple of players. The coach had to tell both to stop. I was getting this via the Kings game and their announcers showed the whole thing.

Absolutely looked like last years team. It's gonna be very tough to watch the rest of this season!

I'm losing a lot of respect for the leaders of this team. Epecially Love. Watching this game, the "Who gives a crap anymore" way the Wolves were playing was so obvious. Most of the many sloppy turnovers were caused by this. A real superstar does not let this happen. How bad was it? After the game, the announcers were congratulating the Kings on not playing down to a inferior team. The Kings...with a 19-29 record.

Kahn should fine himself for bidding against himself and signing Darko to a four-year contract. Then Taylor should fire Kahn. Darko was sucking wind after two minutes. I can't think of a player who has less of a commitment to the game of basketball than Darko--and he actually has a fair amount of competition in the NBA for the winner of the "Least Committed" award. Perhaps Pek can be offered a 500K bonus for intimidating Darko into voiding his own contract for failure to make any effort, much less actually improve. (I need a scapegoat for my frustrations, and Darko is it.) He certainly isn't a professional by any stretch of the imagination. At least Ellington and Randolph have the professionalism to keep themselves in game shape during their extended stays on the bench. Darko can't even do that. I envision him trotting up and down the sideline--perhaps alternating between trotting and walking--in the time between games with a cigarette dangling from his lips in an "attempt" to stay in game shape. Meanwhile guys like Ellington and Randolph and Toliver at least work hard to stay in shape.
