Another meaningless win over a D-league team. When will this team learn how to beat a winning team?

Good win for the Wolves. At 15-15, they are in 9th place in the West. The reserves had their chance to prove what they can do and layed another big egg with a 1-14 start in the 4th quarter. Ouch! That is the glaring weakness on this team that needs to be developed or traded for. Turiaf and Budinger will help. Aside from that, the Wolves played great basketball for 3 quarters.

Krellcoda, the Bucks are actually an NBA team. And there's no such thing as a meaningless win in the NBA, unless you're already out of the playoff picture.

Krell must live to come on here and rip the Wolves. It seems odd for someone who apparently hates the team so much to pay such close attention . Life's to short man, find a new hobby. Nice game by Kevin Love again. Where would this team be with a real coach?

Rick Adelman IS a real coach. So with this real coach, the team is at .500.

I repeat: Barea should start, Rubio should come in off the bench.

The starters are very solid (but need some rest during games). Hopefully the bench can be developed further. The return of the injured players should be a good addition.

Love's had 33 points after 3 quarters and is a bona fide superstar putting up better numbers than Garnett in his prime. This team wins 60% of it's games if the bench isn't the worst in the league. Shved needs to spend some time in the D league and Barrea should stop jacking up 3s and penetrate.

Yes, Adelman is a real coach, a real mediocre coach that not only doesn't develop young players but doesn't seem to care who we draft because he's not going to use them off the bench or put them in the d-league to learn anyway. He is mediocre and his best days as a coach are a decade behind him.

Odannyboy - what is your logic behind JJ-Rubio switch?
