Luc Mbah a Moute walked out of the Timberwolves locker room about 5:30 p.m. Wednesday. He looked both ways down the hall, hesitated. Then he had to ask directions.

Should be easy to find Mbah minutes, this team has a roster full of players who can't defend to save their lives.

Adelman runs into too many players he can't trust. He runs his starters ragged and his bench players worry about making a mistake or getting benched again. Adelman is just one more Kahn hire. It's hard to face but get used to it.

why does Adelman have to wonder how to put Mbah a Moute into the rotation? You yell Mbah a Moute's name, he runs to the scorer's table, you wait until the ref whistles the ball dead, and then he runs onto the court.

I think Adleman is more concerned with collecting his paychecks in his final year of coaching than trying to put together a strategy for victory.

Flip needs to bring a new coach NOW!!!, otherwise this team is done for the season. It's time for Adelman to retire. Like I said, we need a coach with an OUT OF THE BOX mentality who can bring energy and motivation to these players.

Several times I've read that Adelman doesn't say much. Isn't a coach's job to communicate, to use words, to teach to explain...?

Just look at the box score from the Denver game. Look at the scoring - denver had three players with 10 points or more, and ten players who played more than 10 minutes. Wolves? All the starters were in double digit scoring, but only seven players played more than 10 minutes.

To me, I think that Flip Saunders newest project will be to build a bench. I guess this is step 1. Barrea is decent but seems to dribble around way too much. Cunningham is athletic and good when surrounded by better players. Their starting five are pretty good but Love and Pek aren't the least bit athletic (quick with jumping ability in my definition), but are solid rebounders and scorers, but probably a bit weak defensively. I think that we're going to have to wait another year for this team....the starters don't have enough in the tank with the schedule their playing to play top teams if their bench isn't producing.
