With the exception of four players, I would trade away the entire team at the earliest opportunity. Barea had it right the other night: sometimes it doesn't matter how much talent (or potential talent) a player has, if you don't have a passion for the game, an even greater passion to win, and an ability to inspire you teammates, you don't belong on this team. I hope all you low-key slackers find good homes elsewhere in the league. Bye til next year.

Keepers ...Love, Rubio, Pek, JJ, Luke, Williams....on bubble...Lee,Beasley, Randolph....toss...Darko, Johnson, Ellington(who had every chance to earn the starting off guard position), Tolliver, Webster..

Brad Miller may be a decent guy, but the fact remains that he made about $5 million this year from the T-Wolves for doing absolutely nothing but sitting on the bench. He gave us a total of 128 minutes in 14 games this year. That comes out to about $360,000 for every nine minutes the guy actually played. Nice work if you can get it. No wonder he was crying, he'll never make that kind of money for doing nothing in the real world.

Two of the I don't care crew - Beasley and Randlolph should be shipped to Siberia. There's no ifs, ands or buts about it...these two are bums with a talent level that should make them starters in the NBA but they are both dimwitted knuckleheads that will tease and tease and tease some more but never deliver in even a remotely consistent manner. So to all of you Beasley/Randolph lovers out there - pound sand.

Like I have been saying for the past 3 years Kahn brought in all these players who don't give a damn. He should be the #1 who is fired and replaced. Hopefully Adelman has full control of who is on this roster next season. FIRE KAHN!

What an embarrassing performance. These guys ought to be ashamed of themselves for their lack of effort. Paying fans had to suffer through that. Get rid of the whole lot of them.

The Timberwolves are a doomed pathetic franchise.

The only five worth a darn are Love, Rubio, Pek, JJ, Luke. Might as well bring back Lee. Trade Williams. He's lazy and worthless. Trade or release the rest.

This was the worst and most embarassing basketball game Ive ever watched. I had the pleasure of seeing this one in person and I stayed to the very end. For a night I was embarassed that this was my team and that this garbage of a game was even being broadcasted. I was embarassed for the coaching staff and most of all for Brad Miller. The players decided to pay homage to Brad by wearing his head band, but what they shouldve done was play with the fight and competitive drive that Brad Miller used to play with in his hayday. That was just an awful way to retire after beeing on so many successful teams. It was disrespectful that the other guys wouldnt even try to fight back and play hard for him or the fans that came.

Rick Adleman, the assistant coaches and their support staff should have 100% of the say on who is on this roster next year. No need for Kahn.
