So we coulda had Steph Curry and Derozan from that draft, along with Ty lawson. That's a nice guard unit that puts our current guards to shame. Kahn was roundly ridiculed for that draft. History has proven that rightly so. So far, Flip is following in Kahn's footstep, having produced a draft that has netted us zero help this year. And the way the team is playing, they might be just bad enough to miss the playoffs, plus lose their first round pick (top 13 protected) next year in one of Kahn's last imbecilic moves to further destroy the franchise. Only in Wolve's land...this franchise is still cursed. And not even a HOF coach can fix it.

Is it too soon to start rooting for losses so we can keep our pick in one of the most talented drafts to come out in years? Just keep Flipper Kahnders far far away from the draft room if we get to keep the pick. Have Adelman make the choice. Then he would HAVE to play him.

2014 Draft: Dante Exum (6'6" combo guard - Floor General, Dynamite Scorer), Dario Saric (6'10" SF/PF "Shooting machine from anywhere on floor), Doug McDermott (6'7" SF, Smart, can score the 3 with ease).... These are a few of the players who can score, there are many more. Yes, the draft is loaded (top 15-20 picks)...

The Wolves did play harder defense last night. There was even a Levin Love sighting of him sprinting back on defense after catching himself standing with his hard down. Did you see Ronny on the floor waiting for teammates to extend a hand to help him up....ha! No one came to help. Perhaps a sign of this teams lack of togetherness.

Half way thru the season and Coach is still experimenting. Williams is gone and playing well,,Shabazz is stuck on the pines. Adelman dosent work in young players,.. Is still experimenting at the half way point and isn't making the right moves at crunch time in close game. George Karl would have won a lot of those. Sam Mitchell teams would already have been palying tough,, not just talking about it/

The experiment with Adelman is over...He needs to be fired ASAP.A record of 1-20 in close games going back to last year is all the evidence one needs.
