Seriously now, did we waste the number 2 overall pick on Williams. Impact player he is not.

The game wasn't even as close as the score indicated. I like the Brandon Roy signing... always have. But I have to mention... I watched him quite a few times when he was in Portland and he's not even close to that player. I was thinking he would still have some offense but be limited because of his knees. After watching him tonight, he was a turnover machine and couldn't.. or even try ... to get his own shot. He moved slow and didn't help the offense at all. I sure hope he has the ability to improve quite a bit.

Dear Wolves players: The goal, when passing the ball, is to pass the ball to your own team mates. Not the opposing teams players, which restricts your chances of winning. Please make a note of it.

Ghastly effort. I have to say, so far this season I see three pretty useless players wearing Wolves jerseys on the floor: one veteran off-season acquisition, one newbie off-season acquisition, and one returning player. The veteran plays like he's 60 years old, the newbie plays like he's scared to death he's in way over his head, and the returning man so far plays much worse than he did last season. Very depressing to watch. Thanks, Kevin, for the knuckle pushups.

Do not give up! Thirty wins is well within reach.

And to think Kahn took Johnny Flynn over DeRozan. Wow! That guy would look good in a puppy uniform.

I agree stcguy! I didn't see Sunday's game against Toronto. But, Brandon Roy seemed as slow as molasses again Sacramento. I think the first 10 games may show if Roy is a shadow of the player he once was. He's been a non-factor for the first two games.

Derek Williams continue to disappoint. You'd expect more from a No. 2 overall pick.

everyone relax. 80 more games this year, and the Wolves have always had a hard time playing in Toronto. We will see how this team responds tomorrow night in Brooklyn, but good lord everyone, either stay on the bandwagon or don't hop on at all!

With Love out and Beasley gone, there are no excuses for DW's sorry performance [against Toronto?]. I supported his drafting, but he's close to being a huge bust. Hopefully, we can stay in the mix until Love and Rubio return, because Kirilenko looks like a great addition.
