Too much hope in Wolvestown.

Chicago is the home of Malört and Chicagoans love that poo poo so maybe y'all just like being really miserable all the time?

Full disclosure: same.

I absolutely agree about threes being too important. It just isn't as fun to watch people shoot a shot so many times that they miss 60% or more of the time.

It's the sort of thing that I don't know how they get back in the box though.

Like maybe if they did something crazy like ban defenders from the paint, it would push people towards attacking the basket more. Also could lead to cool dunks. But also could lead to very slow games due to defenses violating this all the time.

If you miss the three, your team loses a point.

I don't really object to the current state of the game, I think basketball is in an incredibly fun era, but I do kinda wish it weren't so min-maxed. I wish there were more room for the Paul Pierce pull-up, the Rip Hamilton run-around-a-bunch-until-you-get-a-14-footer, and Dirk imitators
Might I interest you in a KAT?

Lengthier look at Rosas and his plans for the Wolves, featuring a paragraph on our favorite max-contract bust:

quote:

The reality is this: If I go out on the market to get a player, Im not going to find a player thats got a bigger upside than Andrew, said Rosas. Hes a very talented individual, hes got a ton of physical tools, and hes a great kid. We have to mature him into a great player, and thats our responsibility. We have to do everything possible from a front office side, from a coaching side, from player development, to help him be the best player he can be.
After reading the whole article, I felt a lot better, but then I remembered that this is the Minnesota Timberwolves so I'm hoping someone with a better basketball brain that I have can gimme a take.

Huh. I'd think Joerger would be the top candidate if they don't want mini-Flip anymore. Could just be due diligence though.
A bit of the wolves fanbase was worried about getting Joerger because he's not very friendly with the front offices of places he's coached, but if I had to be Divac's coach you bet your butt I'd be unfriendly.

Timberwolves' facebook page has a picture of Mitch Creek working out with the team today and that made me happy, along with a picture of KAT with dreadlocks wearing a headband. What's the deal with Mitch, anyway? He didn't have much of a chance to prove what he could do since all his minutes were garbage time well after we were out of the playoffs.

Lockback posted:

Yeah, he did. I'd have liked to see how he would have done with Robco being alive this season, as the Wolves D looked decent with him while Thibs was around.
RoCo being perma-hurt really loving sucked. He does a lot for the team and I'm very excited for next season.

:swoon: Way too excited to have the head coach thing nailed down so that Saunders can get to work. The fact that Wiggins is sticking around the team this off-season is probably the last shot he has at being respected by anyone else that plays basketball.

Lockback posted:

He's a 6'5" Power Forward. He's probably not an actual NBA player but probably is nice to have around to keep practices uptempo.
And he came all the way back from Australia to practice with the team in May, so he really wants that job.

How many athletes will ever have a comparable career to him, at least in longevity.
There will never be another Half Man Half Amazing, but only him, Kevin Garnett, Kevin Willis, Robert Parish, and Dirk have played 21 seasons. I might be counting wrong, but I'm pretty sure playing through next year would mean he's the only player in history to play for 22 seasons.

edit: If papa Glen hasn't hosed everything up, KG would probably still be playing :mad:
