Really? This assessment leads me to believe next year will look a lot like this year. I was hoping for Rubio, Love, Kirilenko and Pek staying and all the rest being traded or retired. Maybe Luke and J.J. could stay as backups. But a clean sweep is needed. And PLEASE get some athletes who want to play every game -- not just take every third day off with a 'strained-something-or-other'.

Please, the last thing this team needs is another wholesale offseason overhaul. That's a terrible take. For you to say these guys were taking every third game off means you did not even watch a single game. playing back to back games with only nine healthy players would take a toll on any group. This team has NO SG never has, and tried to guard that position with guys who were not able to. You don't dump the whole team because you're missing pieces. you add the missing pieces. This team has a lot of good pieces for a contending team. It was missing its best PF who will be back, and a SG that can shoot the ball and guard the position. That's it. Horrible take Dewarf, just horrible.

Johnson and Gelabale barely tasted hardwood once we got some players back. They could be gone. I love Pek, but missing games because of a bruised calf? Pek is tough, but very brittle. Injuries took a huge toll on this team. What's to say it can't happen again next year? I like Luke and JJ, but they are both too small to play the 2, so one has to go. We were the worst 3 point shooting team in the entire NBA. We need players who can shoot. Kahn must go, as he's had 4 years to get us to the playoffs, and countless 1st round picks, and he has failed miserably with almost all of them. Our 2 best big men were brought here by McHale. Rubio is Kahns ONLY successful pick, and he was a no brainer. DWill has potential, but doesn't fit on this team. Kahn picked Flynn, who currently isn't even in the league, over a potential all star in Curry who is a 45% 3 point shooter who leads the NBA in 3 pointers made by a large margin. Then he bragged about it. Remember "You're gonna love his smile"? I'm not gonna go over all Kans mistakes because there is limited cyberspace. Siffice it to say it was tough finding a GM that did a worse job than the legendary Kevin McHale, but Taylor may have done just that in hiring the sportwriter out of Portland. Kahn had better be nowhere near the team when the draft commences.

Ricky Rubio..The franchise Kevin Love..It's all about me Nikola Pekovic..My calf hurts,good backup required and I do not mean Greg Steimsma Andrei Kirilenko..Not worth 10 million Derrick Williams..good player in the right offense which does not include Adelman Luke Ridnour...good back up point guard J.J. Barea ....good backup point guard Chase Budinger..."I will only play for Adelman" please leave ASAP.Players like you are a dime a dozen in the NBA.

This is not the roster I had hoped for from the picks we've had over the past 2-3 years. Obviously, not every pick will work out, but Kahn has whiffed big time more than once, and the roster still has gaping holes. All the Budingers, Kirilenkos and Roys of the world aren't going to put this team over the top; time for Kahn to resign or be shown the door.
